Is there a way to effectively treat localized nodular cutaneous amyloidosis on the tip of the nose?
—Roch P. Coll, MD, Phoenix

There are several options available for the treatment of this problem. Topical high-potency steroid with occlusion and intralesional steroids would be simple first-line options. Second-line therapeutic options include excision, dermabrasion, and pulsed dye or carbon-dioxide laser.
