Mastocytomas are benign and can be left alone. They usually disappear over a few years.

Oral antihistamines can be taken to control symptoms of itch.

JUVENILE XANTHOGRANULOMA:

JXG usually disappears by itself over a few years and can be left alone if it does not bother the child.

If causing symptoms, JXG may be surgically excised, leaving a small scar.

PILOMATRICOMA:

Pilomatricomas do not usually disappear with time and will either remain the same size or grow slowly.

A small surgery (punch or excision biopsy) may be performed to completely remove the pilomatricoma. It does not usually recur after being removed.
