Seborrheic Keratosis | Things To Avoid

A type of keratosis which has a pasted on and waxy appearance is called seborrheic keratosis (SK). This commonly appears when someone is old, and they also look like warts. But age is not the only factor for obtaining SK. Heredity is another factor to be looked into observed this.   They typically arise from keratinocytes. Since it is noncancerous, it is nothing to be too troubled about. But those who are beauty conscious may find it very grotesque. They can also be mistaken as warts, but it should not be because SK has no viral cause.

SK usually shows on the face, neck, arms and legs. If these grow on areas which are easily seen, then you may feel ashamed of it.

Since this skin condition rarely aches or causes discomfort, you really don’t have to get rid of it. However you should not try to eliminate of it yourself. An infection can occur if you do so. Irritation can occur if you use harsh detergents or soap for your skin so go for the milder ones.

Getting rid of this requires a doctor’s recommendation. There are many choices and it’s up to you to choose.

•    Extremely low temperature is used in cryotherapy to freeze off the affected areas.
