What is Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra?

Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) is a common and benign skin lesion. It typically presents in adolescence and can develop in size and number with increased age. Those most affected by this skin concern are people of colour of Black African, Asian, and mixed heritage backgrounds, predominantly within the Fitzpatrick skin type classifications 4-6.

It can present as individual scattered lesions that are black or dark brown in colour. They can be either flat, slightly raised or noticeably raised against the skin’s surface. These lesions will likely usually measure between 1-5mm in diameter.


Commonly occurring on the cheekbones, temples and around the eyes, dermatosis papulosa nigra can also form on the rest of the face as well as the neck, chest, and back. It is believed that areas more exposed to sunlight are likely to develop this skin concern. Some cases can be mild with only a small number of lesions, while others may find that they have a high concentration of dark spots or bumps spread across multiple areas.

Although this condition is not medically concerning, its development can be cosmetically undesirable to some. We offer advanced electrolysis at our Wimbledon and Kensington clinics as an effective treatment to help improve the appearance of dermatosis papulosa nigra.
