SEBORRHEIC KERATOSIS (also known asWarty Keratosis, Stucco Keratosis, Barnacles)
Seborrheic keratoses are benign skin growths of the outer layer of skin (epidermis), often described as “waxy”, “stuck-on”, “warty”, or “barnacles.” They may be few or numerous in number. The color is often brown, but can be skin-colored or black. They can appear on almost any part of the body including the face, scalp, torso, extremities, and genitals. Seborrheic keratoses may exhibit more than one color and grow quickly, prompting patients to visit the Dermatologist.
Seborrheic keratoses can be successfully removed using a variety of techniques, including cryotherapy, electrodessication, surgery, and/or laser.
