Hello Mark,

The causes are not ascertainable many times in an individual and following factors have been associated;

1) dry skin
2) environment pollution
3) medications
4) hereditary factors
5) allergic
6) hypersensitivity.

The treatment is dependent on the cause and consist of;

1) excision by minor surgery,
2) laser ablation,
3) topical and / or oral antibiotics,
4) topical or oral retinoids,

Usually laser ablation done by the dermatologist is one of the best way and prevent the recurrence.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks so much and is it compulsory to contact the dermatologist or there is medication i can just use to cure it once with reoccurence?

You are very welcome, Mark.

Ideally a dermatologist should be considered so a cause can be ascertained and an ideal treatment according to the cause can be recommended. You may try a course of antibiotics like Doxycycline or Minocycline, meanwhile. The antibiotics occasionally may prevent recurrence for very long duration.

It is privilege assisting you.
