What is lymphomatoid papulosis?

Lymphomatoid Papulosis (LyP) is a disease of the immune system that presents with self-healing small bumps and spots on the skin that come and go. It can be persistent, with frequent, recurring eruptions, or it can self-resolve for an extended period of time before showing up again. Stress associated exacerbations are common.

Symptoms of lymphomatoid papulosis

  • Skin over the entire body is red

  • Scaly skin that flakes off

  • New bumps appearing while some bumps are healing already

  • Lumps under the skin

  • Skin lumps with scabs in the center

  • Skin redness or red bumpy rashes

Questions your doctor may ask to check for lymphomatoid papulosis

  • Is your whole body red?

  • Do you have flaky, scaly skin?

  • Are some of your rashes healing while others are appearing?

  • Do you have any lumps under your skin?

  • Do you have a skin lump with a scab or crust in the center?

Treatment for lymphomatoid papulosis

Not all cases require treatment. Mild cases may be treated with topical steroids. Severe cases may benefit from other kinds of oral medicines and/or phototherapy.
