It is thought to be due to a defect in the gene, which may be triggered by circulating androgens which is why it appears in males at puberty.
A Becker’s nevus is a large unilateral brown patch, over half of the chest or upper back. After puberty it often becomes darker and quite hairy.
No definitely effective treatment is available for most of the becker’s nevi cases.
The extra hair can be eliminated by repetitive treatments with a hair removal laser. To reduce the pigmentation, a pigment laser may be useful, but not necessary that it would be effective always
Acne associated with Becker’s nevus can be treated with conventional acne treatments, including in severe cases, oral isotretinoin.
Becker’s nevus is a benign (non-cancerous) condition and does not require treatment except for cosmetic reasons.
