There are multiple types of Keratosis:
-Actinic keratosis (also known as solar keratosis): a premalignant condition.
- Chronic Scar Keratosis.
- Hydrocarbon Keratosis.
- Keratosis Pilaris (KP, also known as follicular keratosis)
- Seborrheic Keratosis, not premalignant.
Treatment depends on the severity of the condition. On occasion, a biopsy may be recommended.
Lasers can also be used to treat the affected areas.
