In brief: Skin granulomas
Granuloma annulare is a condition where granulomas (little lumps of immune reactive tissue) form in the skin.
It can occasionally be associated with thyroid disease or diabetes, so you should be worked up for those conditions by your doctor. Otherwise, it is benign and of only cosmetic concern. Treatment is usually with steroid injections into the granulomas, but other therapies are described.
