What Are the Side Effects of Removing DPN?

Dermatosa papulos nigra
Most dermatologists are capable of removing these gently. There is a chance of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation with most treatments and a chance of lightening that can be permanent (hypopigmentation) with freezing and some other treatments. Furthermore you will have to use a sunblock to make sure you don't increase the risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Try to see Dr Gerald Bernstein.
