Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) is a type of seborrheic keratosis (SK) found in skin of color that start appearing in the 3rd and 4th decades of life. DPNs are benign, black, raised lesions that are commonly found on the face, neck and upper torso. Many people call DPNs moles which is a misnomer since DPNs are developed from keratin cells and not pigment cells. People normally develop more DPNs the older they get and these lesions have a tendency to run in families. People often find DPNs unsightly and the removal of DPNs are never covered by insurance.
