• It vanishes after becoming a brown color predominant lesion or a brown pigmentation itself.
• This type often responds to the disinfectant therapy.
• Erythroderma is rarely developed.

• It often arises from the neck and gradually expands and diminishes.
• In the uncommon occasions of recurrence, the lesions are liable to develop as papules or more poorly demarcated mild erythema which coincide with typical or classically described atopic dermatitis.
