Sun or Photo Damage
Long term exposure to ultraviolet radiations of the sun is the main cause of skin damage that leads to red scaly patches or plaques. It typically occurs in relatively older people with lighter skin. Proper treatment and precautions are very important at an early stage to avoid serious consequences of this condition. Face, upper arms, forehead, ears and neck are the most common areas to be involved.
Laser treatment is a very effective modality to get rid of this condition. Other alternatives we have are medicated and finest sun screens and other products to be used under expert guidance.
