Seborrheic Keratosis (SK)

Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is a benign skin growth commonly seen among people over 40 years of age. SK, also known as barnacles can come in different colors such as brown, black, or skin-colored growths on the face, chest, shoulders and back. The growths on the skin are usually multiple, with a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated, or warty and “stuck on” appearance. When the SK is big enough to rub against clothing, it can cause irritation and bleeding. Book an appointment with us if you experience irritation and bleeding, sores that don’t heal, or any suspicious spots that you are concerned about.
