Skin Woe

Health & Nutrition - - JUST LAUNCHED -

I’ve de­vel­oped waxy, brown spots on my skin. Are they po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous? What’s the best way to get rid of them? Namita Kapoor, Mum­bai

The brown spots that you have are called so­lar lenti­genes. In some ar­eas, they are flat, and in oth­ers, they are thick and raised. They may be re­moved by the ap­pli­ca­tion of an acid, by freez­ing or cautery.
