Warts/verrucas

Warts are small, benign growths caused by a viral infection of the skin or mucous membrane. They are contagious from person to person and from one area of the body to another on the same person.

A verruca is a small skin lesion which is commonly found on the bottom surface of the foot. The lesion is usually approximately 2-5mm in diameter. Their appearance is similar to corns but verrucas are more superficial in depth and the surface is covered with black dots that are actually capillaries that feed the verrucae. The colour is usually paler then the usual tone of the skin..

Seborrhoeic keratosis

Also known as Seborrhoeic warts and Basal Cell Papilloma. They occur with age, most people over 50 will have at least one, they increase in size and number with age. They range from being non-pigemented to golden, dark brown and almost black, and have a ‘stuck on’ appearance.

 

Lentigo

A lentigo (plural: lentigines) is a small pigmented spot on the skin with a clearly-defined edge, surrounded by normal-appearing skin. Lentigines may evolve slowly over years, or they may be eruptive  and appear rather suddenly. Pigmentation may be homogeneous  or variegated, with a color ranging from brown to black, and will  stay stable in their color regardless of sunlight exposure.

 

Age spots (solar lentigines)

Age spots – also called liver spots and solar lentigines – are flat gray, brown or black spots. They vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms — areas most exposed to the sun. Though age spots are very common in adults older than age 40, they can affect younger people as well.

 

Pigmentation

These are conditions that are caused when there is an excessive or reduced production of the pigment, melanin. This pigment is responsible for the color of the skin, eye and hair and is also responsible for forming a barrier against the ultraviolet radiation. Skin pigmentation disorders results in the skin appearing blotchy or discolored, darker or lighter.
