Due to years of sun exposure, the skin becomes rough and patchy, which is called actinic keratosis or solar keratosis. It is usually less than 1 inch in diameter. It can be pink, red, or brown, and can cause itching or burning of the area. It commonly affects the skin on your face, lips, ears, hands, forearms, scalp, and neck. Topical creams made from Fluorouracil, Imiquimod, and Diclofenac are used to treat this condition. Surgical treatment options include cryotherapy, curettage, and photodynamic therapy. If left untreated, it can progress to squamous cell carcinoma.
