papillomatosis

tiesteo asked:

Hi, I have been following your blog since the beginning of time, I absolutely love it! Recently I have been diagnoses with confluent and reticulated papillomatosis. I have found very little information on the subject and am hoping that you have some magical book with more information. Thanks I really appreciate anything that you find!

Thanks!

Unfortunately, there’s not much out there regarding papilllomatosis, especially confluent reticulated papillomatosis. The most I’ve been able to find is that when it’s idiopathic (there’s no known cause) and not laryngeal, it tends to not cause serious symptoms on its own, aside from cosmetic and occasional itchiness issues.

However, it’s frequently misdiagnosed as tinea versicolor, which is interesting in and of itself, and which I’ll do a post on soon.
