Diagnostic Considerations

Also consider keratosis pilaris atrophicans, including keratosis pilaris atrophicans faciei, or ulerythema ophryogenes; atrophoderma vermiculatum or ulerythema acneiform; and follicularis keratosis spinulosa decalvans. [14] In addition, other common causes of facial scarring, such as a history of varicella zoster virus infection, molluscum contagiosum infection, [15] scarring acne, and herpes virus infection, should be considered.
