mrwalter posted:
What is Actinic Keratosis?
Actinic Keratosis is a skin disorder in which involves very small, elevated rough and reddish bumps on the skin when a person has had a lot of sun exposure lately. This condition is common and most apparent in those with fair complexion and neat skin. The severe form of this disease can lead to skin cancer but at initial stages this disorder is less harmful but causes major discomfort. The bumps and lesions formed on the skin due to Actinic Keratosis are reddish in color and their texture is quite rough.
How is it caused?
Actinic Keratosis is caused due to several reasons amongst them all the major reason is excessive exposure to sun. People having fair skin are more prone to this disorder and those with blue or green eyes or even blond or red hair. Those who have had a kidney transplant in the past are also at a higher risk of suffering from this disorder. Medicines that usually suppress the immune system can also be a major cause of origination of Actinic Keratosis. Not just this severe sunburns and old age is also an eminent factor that leads to this skin disorder so one has to be very careful especially those with very fair complexion.
Symptoms of Disease
The signs and symptoms that help doctors identify and diagnose this disorder and understand the level of severity includes:
  • Bumps and lesions highly apparent on the scalp, face, hands back, chest or other areas of the skin that are highly exposed to sun.
  • Flat scaly areas on the skin
  • White, crusty and yellow scale on top of the bumps
  • Hard and wart-like rough surfaces
  • Hard to touch but not too visible on the skin
Treatment, Prevention & when to see the Doctor?
There are numerous treatment options that are available in the market for curing Actinic Keratosis but before that one should see the doctor so that they can identify the severity of this disorder and help you with the right treatment option. You should seek medical administration in cases when you see abnormal growths on the skin and your skin has started screaming due to the pain and discomfort these lesions have caused.
