Abstract: Eruptive vellus hair cysts are benign lesions that can be difficult to distinguish from other skin conditions, including molluscum contagiosum and acne vulgaris. Diagnosis can be corroborated with histopathology. We emphasize differing dermoscopy features to help distinguish eruptive vellus hair cysts from molluscum contagiosum or acne.
