Removing these Minor Skin Lesions Immediately

 

These are the most common sun-related pre-cancerous

growths noted in fair-skinned individuals. They are benign

(non-malignant) and appear as crusty, dry scaly bumps that

are rough textured like sand-paper. If left untreated, Actinic Keratosis can develop into Squamous Cell Carcinoma.


 

These are soft yellowish plaques of lipids usually found in

the periorbital (around eyes) area. They are very tiny to

medium in size and some may be raised. Some individuals are

predisposed towards them. They are believed to be related to abnormal lipid metabolism.

 

This lesion is caused when the sebaceous glands located

near the hair follicle become overactive, inflamed, infected

with bacteria and fills up with pus.

 

These are non-cancerous benign skin growths that originate in the keratinocytes of the epidermis. These “barnacles of old

age” vary in colour from light to black, are round or oval, slightly elevated and vary in sizes.

 

These are fibromas that are prevalent in Fitzpatrick Skin

Types V and VI. These lesions are darkly pigmented without scales, and are found most commonly on the face around the eyes, on the cheeks and the neck area. They can appear in adolescence and they increase with age.

 

These are soft yellowish deposits of lipids usually found in

the periorbital (around eyes) area. They are believed to be related to abnormal lipid metabolism.

 

These cherry red to purple coloured papules are also known

as Campbell De Morgan spots or Senile Angiomas. Clusters

of capillaries under the surface of the skin form a flat or

raised round dome.

 

Tiny superficial dilated blood vessels appear as red wavy

lines just below the surfaces of the skin, mostly on the nose, cheeks and decollete area. Constant blood stimulation causes the thin elastic walls of the capillaries to vasodialate causing breakage. Trauma may also cause these broken capillaries

and those who suffer from allergies tend to be prone to Telangiestasia.

 

This is a common benign vascular lesion present in healthy adults and young children. It is characterized by a central red arteriole, or punctum, representing the body of a spider, with radical patterns of thin walled capillaries that look like

wavy legs.

 

Chronic sun damage contributes towards these lesions

resulting in enlarged sebaceous glands. They appear as a soft, yellowish papule with cauliflower-like or doughnut-shaped appearance ranging in size from 2 to 3mm. They are usually solitary and appear on the forehead and cheeks, particularly

on oily and asphyxiated skins.

 

These are small fibromas that appear either single or in

multiple formulation and are sometimes referred to as Achrochordon. They are commonly found on the neck,

breasts and axillae in skinfolds and on eyelids. They can become inflamed with constant friction from necklaces or clothing.

 
Although unattractive, these are harmless growths that appear mostly on middle aged men and women. Skin tags are formed when the area of the outer layer of skin begins to overgrow and envelope collagen fibres, protruding from the surrounding skin. They vary in colour and shape and can be irregular.
 

Tiny cholesterol deposits of lipids are believed to be related

to poor lipid metabolism. They are very prominent under the eye and on the nose.

 

These plugs of sebum are covered with layers of Stratum Cornified Cells and are commonly found on the facial area where there is poor exfoliation for example on very oily or very dry skins. They can also occur during the healing of traumatic

scars. Milia are commonly found on the forehead, cheeks and around the eyes.

 

These are non-cancerous benign skin growths that originate

in the keratinocytes of the epidermis. These “barnacles of old

age” vary in colour from light to black, are round or oval, slightly elevated and vary in size.

 

Also known as Angiomas, Ruby Points, or Blood Spots.

These are bright red to purple dots of blood usually found on

the upper trunk such as the neck area. In children, they are called Strawberry Hemangiomas and appear raised, red and

soft with a strawberry-like lobule but usually disappear

in adulthood.

 

A Sebaceous Cyst is a small sac-like bump that contains

a jelly-like white or yellow cheesy substance made of

keratin. They vary in size and location, can be

uncomfortable, unsightly and may or may not become

infected. The contents have a foul odour and they can be

caused by excessive testosterone levels and other hormonal imbalances in the body. Blocked sebaceous glands can

trigger bacterial infections and cause the formation of cysts

as well.
