What is a treatment for granuloma annulare?

Depends

Flatulence
There are several types of GA. Sometimes topical steroids can be used, even intralesional steroids at times. However, the more common types of GA can and will get better slowly over time. I'd have a dermatologist take a look.

For localized type, potent topical steroid or intralesional injections, cryosurgery with liquid nitrogen, and nitrous oxide can be used. There are others like tacrolimus and imiquimod creams which have been used for localized and generalized. As for generalized, the treatment of choice remains to be defined

granuloma at the angle of mouth was operated after biopsy we found out that it was SCC how should we go ahead with the treatment

Skin Cancer

Head-mouth
Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common forms of skin cancer. The form of treatment will depend on the size, tumor type, depth, your medical history, and preference of your physician. Depending on these factors, treatment may either surgical, locally destructive (e.g. cryotherapy), or chemotherapy with topical and/or systemic drugs. Secondary prevention by sun avoidance is imperative.

I am sorry to hear about your about your mother but don't get too worried yet. The list of causes is numerous. Usually we do some routine labs and follow with repeat MRIs every six months unless symptoms dictate a change. I wish her well.

Granuloma treatment

Most dermatologists can deal with this and you should return for a check up. If you are reluctant to do this, you could see a dental surgeon or plastic surgeon for evaluation and retreatment if needed.

Are there treatments for granuloma anulari other than photo therapy and prednisone? Mine is spreading all over &turning purple

Granuloma annulare

Prednisone
High potency topical or intralesional corticosteroids are the most common treatments prescribed for localized GA. Many systemic drugs have been used in the treatment of generalized GA, such as hydroxychloroquine, isotretinoin, or dapsone. Cyclosporine is reserved for severe, refractory cases. Topical calcineurin inhibitors such as tacrolimus or pimecrolimus can be tried as well.
