Dmso in lick granulomas. Lick granuloma LG also known as acral lick dermatitis or acral pruritic nodule; acral meaning 'extremity' is a common canine dermatitis wherein repetitive licking results in the development of a well circumscribed, raised, firm, alopecic, eroded to ulcerated plaque or nodule. Lesions are most commonly found on the dorsal aspect of the front limb, anywhere from the metacarpal area to the elbow. LGs are less commonly noted over the metatarsus or tarsal or tibial regions. The etiology of LG is multi-factorial. Primary factors are defined as those that initiate the licking.

Cause: Calcinosis cutis occurs when calcium crystals are abnormally deposited in the skin. Calcinosis circumscripta, a more localized form of calcium deposition in the skin, can occur on pressure points such as the paws and elbows, at suture sites, and on the tongue, but has different underlying causes than calcinosis cutis. Clinical Signs: Calcinosis cutis lesions commonly appear on the skin as bumps or flat raised areas papules or plaques with gritty yellow, white, or grey granules. The lesions are commonly surrounded by reddened skin, because calcinosis cutis often causes inflammation. The back, underarms and groin area are most commonly affected, but the lesions often start in one area and spread if the underlying cause is not controlled. Many animals with calcinosis cutis are itchy and uncomfortable. Their lesions often develop secondary infections, leading to red tinged or white-green discharge from the lesions and increased swelling and itching.
