Seborrheic keratosis has been associated with exposure to excessive light. It may not be the exact cause of the disease but the doctors believe that sunlight may also speed the rate of its growth. The disease is believed to be as a result of aging and normally begins with few spots during or after your middle age. It is characterized by brown spots on one’s skin. The spots can affect any part of the body and are known to affect both men and women.
The only way to prevent the seborrheic keratosis is by preventing it from growing further. This involves way to block your skin from direct and excessive sun light. It may not be the permanent solution but as they say, prevention is better than cure.
Sun rays are made up of two radiations, UVA and UVB. The two radiations are known to affect and damage the skin. The UVB radiation is much worse than the UVA but the latter is the commonly known to affect the skin.
To prevent yourself or your child from seborrheic keratosis, it is best to take precautions at an early age as possible. One of the precautions is to apply moisturizers for dry skin. The lotions soften, protect and prevent your skin from the damage that may be caused by direct sunlight.
Another way is to always put on clothes that will block your skin from access of direct sun light. Sun rays are known to be strong and in excess from 10 am to 4 pm. If you cannot wear such clothes because of the high temperatures, it is best you keep off by staying indoors or under a shade.
Put on a sunscreen or a hat to cover your face. The face is the most exposed part of your body and it is recommended you take more care on it. The sunscreens will protect you from the UVA radiations.
Love your skin as much as you love your health. It is advisable you visit a doctor regularly for skin examinations. This will help you to detect any change that may occur on your skin.
