Keratosis is a skin disorder caused by overexposure to the sun (or sometimes the use of tanning beds). There are three types of keratosis: seborrheic, actinic and pilaris. Seborrheic keratosis manifests itself as non-cancerous growths or bumps on the skin. Actinic keratosis is the most common; considered a pre-cancerous condition, it is one of the most common skin issues faced by sun worshippers today. Keratosis pilaris is a skin disorder that is caused by plugged hair follicles. Actinic keratosis may affect exposed areas of skin. It is important for individuals to identify symptoms of keratosis to prevent complications such as severe skin damage and skin cancer.
