Description of Actinic keratosis
Actinic keratosis is a rough, scaly patch that appears due to exposure to the sun. These patches may itch or even present without any symptoms. These patches may take years to develop. Most common sites to be affected are scalp, face, and back of the hands. Actinic keratosis is considered precancerous and if left untreated, can turn into a skin cancer. Do consult your doctor for timely diagnosis.
