Actinic Keratosis are the small crusty, scaly and horn like bumps on the skins surface. They are sometimes very itchy and have a tender, prickly sensation. The horny part is raised, dry and rough and mostly noticed by touch, while the visible part is the base where the skin is inflamed and a darker color than the surrounding skin; usually a brown, pink, or red. In very severe cases the horny bumps can start to bleed. Unfortunately the areas that are mostly affected are parts of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun rays; the face, ears, neck, chest, forearms, lips, scalp etc. These are also the areas that mostly affect the personal appearance of each person, so treating this skin disorder is usually a priority.
