Dermatofibroma on Leg

dematofibroma video ad
A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.

I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there!

There is only one way to remove it for good...surgery. It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to improve it's appearance.

I am not ready to tackle a surgical removal and scar at this time so I have a few ways I use to hide it using makeup and self tanner. I put together a little video to show you how I do it. I hope it helps you in your quest to improve the look of your dermatofibroma!
