Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN)

This is a common condition for individuals with dark skin. The famous actor, Morgan Freeman has visible DPN lesions on his face. While the condition is normally benign, for some it’s cosmetically undesirable. Dr. Marcus Goodman can successfully treat DPN at his office in Roswell, GA.

Morgan Freeman skin disorder

This condition affects 10% to 35% of the black population in the United States. Many DPN patients have noted a family history of the lesions and the number of lesions increase with age.

Cosmetic disfigurement from the lesions may be substantial causing patients concern and distress. Dr. Marcus Goodman is known among African Americans for his specialty in treating African American skin conditions like dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN).
