Thanks for posting your query.

The best treatment for dermatosis Papulosa nigra is burning out the lesions with a radiofrequency machine.

Application of a local anaesthetic cream on the skin before the procedure makes it painless.

It takes around half an hour for the procedure depending on the number of lesions.

hope my recommendations are helpful to you.
