Can you spot rough scaly patches?

If you're fair-skinned and over 50, you have an increased chance of developing actinic keratosis - rough scaly patches that are commonly found on sun-exposed skin.

See your doctor for a confirmed diagnosis and about treatment options, since these slow-growing lesions can develop into skin cancer (squamous cell carcinoma).

Incorporating the use of a sunscreen into your daily skin care regimen and wearing protective clothing and accessories can limit the amount of UV damage to your skin.
