Actinic Keratosis

AK's typically occur on body parts that are most often exposed to the sun. They usually appear as small crusty, scaly, or crumbly bumps or horns. Early on, they may come and go. Sometimes they are more easily detected by feel than by sight.

Active Keratosis can be treated by cryotherapy (freezing), topical chemotherapy (applying cream or lotion), chemical peeling, dermabrasion, laser surgery, or other dermatologic surgical procedures.
