What is it?
Actinic keratosis is a type of sun damage with small rough plaques that can grow and develop into skin cancers. The sun damage can create seborrheic dermatitis, which appears as facial redness and scaling.
What do I NEED to know?
You need to see your dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. SmartLotion can help clear the inflammation and rash, but for this, a dermatologist visit is a must for cancer testing.
Self-Care Guide For Actinic Keratosis
Apply a thin disappearing layer of SmartLotion twice daily for two weeks to clear the inflammation and redness from the seborrheic dermatitis. Get in to see your doctor to screen for precancerous actinic keratoses that should be treated with 5-Fluorouracil cream, or liquid nitrogen freezing.
