I have Kyrle disease and have bumps all over my arms and legs. They are extremely painful and unsightly. What is the direct treatment for this condition? Is there treatment for the pain? What causes the lesions?
Kyrle disease is most often associated with conditions such as diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, liver abnormalities and congestive heart failure. Therefore, treatment is typically directed toward the underlying condition when appropriate. Rapid improvement and resolution of the lesions is often seen once the associated condition is treated.
Other treatment options specifically target the signs and symptoms associated with Kyrle disease. For example, medicated lotions, sedating antihistamines, and topical corticosteroids may be prescribed in people with severe itching. UV light therapy is reportedly particularly helpful for people with widespread lesions or severe itching from renal or hepatic disease. Carbon dioxide laser or cryosurgery may be helpful for some people with a few lesions.
