2. Types

There are five different types of granuloma annulare. Four of the types occur on the surface of the skin and one manifests just under the skin. Localized GA is the most common form, while generalized, patch, subcutaneous and perforating are rarer. An individual can experience two or more types of GA simultaneously.

With each type, the primary indicator for the disorder is the presence of small nodules that are typically skin-colored, yellow or slightly red. The bumps appear in a ring formation on the skin. There are specific variations in symptoms for the different types of GA.
