Since when do you have this?

This looks like acne keloidalis nuchae. Have you heard of it?

Does any skin scale come out from that?

Does hair come out from it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have had it around 5 months.I do not believe hair comes out of it, it now somewhat seems there is a second small dot forming I can feel, skin does scale if I pick it very hard.

Thank you very much for all the information provided.

This is definitely acne keloidalis nuchae.

Can you confirm if you have it on any other part of the body?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nowhere else can I get rid of it, I have a apt with a dr. Or does it keep spreading and get worse
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

No , this condition called acne keloidalis nuchae occurs specifically on the back of the neck near the hair line . This will not occur on any other part of the body.

I would suggest that a dermascopy test and a skin biopsy test be discussed with the doctor.

This can be treated by freezing the spots with liquid nitrogen ( cryofreezing ) .

This will help in removing these spots.
