Granuloma annulare is a chronic skin disease that appears as raised, reddish or skin-colored bumps which form ring patterns on the hands, feet, elbows and knees. 

Symptoms of Granuloma Annulare

  • Raised, reddish or skin-colored bumps (lesions) that can expand or join to form ring patterns, most commonly on your hands and feet. The patterns may resemble ringworm.

  • Mild itching in some people, though the lesions usually cause no pain or itching.

Treatment for Granuloma Annulare

Treatment may not be necessary as it will usually resolve without treatment in a few years in most patients. However, the condition can sometimes be treated with topical creams or injections.
