Multiple AKN Bumps Removal: AKN bumps, which primarily collect around the back of the head or scalp, can have adverse negative effects on your health, quality of life, comfort, and emotional health. Known to worsen over time, AKN should be diagnosed and treated immediately or as soon as possible so that it does not worsen and become unmanageable or harder to treat.
Suppose, for any reason; you suspect that you may have AKN. In that case, it is highly recommended to consult a specialized AKN dermatologist such as Dr. Sanusi Umar, AKA The Bumpinator, to diagnose the condition immediately so that it does not get any worse and so that your precious time and money are not wasted on treatments that do not work.

AKN Removal: Combining Cutting Edge-Medical Knowledge with an Artistic Sensibility
Known as a pioneer in the field of AKN removal, from diagnosis to treatment, Dr. U is also known for his artistic hand and eye.
A critical part of AKN surgery is not only the success of its removal and the prevention of its reappearance but also the healing and scarification process.
The patient needs to heal a natural-looking scar where the AKN used to be so that the back of the scalp or head can naturally heal following the patient’s natural hairline.
This critical cosmetic part contributes much to the patient’s satisfaction and happiness in their AKN removal results post-surgery.
Using specific methods of AKN diagnosis and removal, Dr. U can successfully remove AKN bumps from his patients, leaving a clean and natural-looking scar reminiscent of a natural hairline that harmonizes following the patient’s features.

FAQ – Commonly Asked Questions Regarding AKN
What can I do to prevent my AKN from getting worse?
Due to AKN bumps being painful and often itchy, it is common for AKN patients to scratch, rub, or pop AKN bumps.
Yet, scratching, rubbing, or shaving the back of your head or neck where AKN bumps lay may cause your AKN to worsen.
It is also best to keep the area where your AKN bumps are as clean as possible while touching or irritating it as little as possible.
Suppose you have AKN or suspect that you have AKN. In that case, it is best to schedule a free consultation with Dr. U, AKA The Bumpinator, using the button above to diagnose and treat your AKN immediately – before the situation worsens into something more painful, significant, and harder to manage.
What are some signs of AKN worsening?
AKN follows many stages, as shown in Dr. U’s AKN Classification Types Chart.
Signs of AKN worsening can be seen in the growth of merged papules, nodules, bumps, plaques, and more.
Typically, if your AKN bumps are getting bigger, it is a clear sign that your AKN is growing in severity and, therefore, should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
As one can see from the AKN Classification Chart mentioned above, AKN can spread to the whole back of the head or converge together into a large tumor or plaque that is hard to hide and manage.
How big can AKN bumps get?
Unfortunately, AKN is known to worsen over time, meaning that AKN bumps can grow in size ranging from their depth, width, the affected area, and more.
Many cases of severe AKN require extensive treatment such as radiation therapy and laser removal to remove successfully.
Whether you have AKN bumps in the size of small peas, or AKN bumps in the size of wide scars or bands, plaques, nodules, or more on the back of your head, it is best to consult with a dermatologist who has had extensive experience with AKN, such as Dr. Umar AKA The Bumpinator.
