Dermatofibromas, those tiny benign skin growths, have the ability to sprout up anywhere on the body. However, they tend to favor the lower legs, upper arms, and upper back. These peculiar nodules are more commonly found in adults rather than children and can display a range of colors including pink, red, grey, or brown. Interestingly, their hues may even shift over time. When touched, they feel solid and can be likened to a stone hiding beneath the skin. If you dare to pinch them from the sides, you may notice a slight indentation on the top.
While dermatofibromas can occasionally cause tenderness and itching, they are typically painless and rarely exceed a half-inch in diameter. Usually, only one nodule will make an appearance, but on occasion, multiple nodules may arise simultaneously.
