2. Symptoms

The appearance of small bumps is the only symptom of lichen nitidus. They rarely appear on the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet but can develop just about anywhere else. Usually, they are the same color as the skin but may differ depending on skin color. The bumps may appear brighter on people with dark skin or pinker on those with light skin. They may clear up in one part of the body and reappear on another. Sometimes, the rash develops along scratches, creases, and skin folds.
