DPN's are usually pretty easy to treat with either light electrodessication or focal erbium laser
Simple electrodessication can be very effective for DPN's, but use of low settings is very important. Patients should avoid picking or manipulating these areas, as this can increase the risk of discoloration that is persistent. Snip-removal can also be helpful for larger, more pedunculated lesions. For larger areas, an erbium laser can be very helpful, reliable and effective and avoids the use of liquid nitrogen (which is more likely to lead to discoloration or scarring).
