Answer

Treatment is generally not required because lesions spontaneously resolve. [16] Ramos Pinheiro et al reported the use of the calcineurin inhibitor pimecrolimus 0.1% cream, with resolution. [8] Treatment of any initiating inflammatory process, with its associated maceration and secondary infection, is beneficial.
