In brief: Benign skin rash
Granuloma annulare (ga for short) is a relatively common inflammatory disease that occurs in all age groups.
Ga is characterized clinically by raised skin colored to red bumps arranged in a ring like pattern usually on hands and feet. The precise cause of ga is unknown.

In brief: No
It is only in the skin and can be suppressed with medicine.
Either topical, injections of cortisone cream or oral agents in severe cases such as dapsone.
