Keratosis can appear as dry and scaly spots of skin on your body. We look at what keratosis treatment involves.
Thicker keratoses may be frozen off using a technique known as cryotherapy, which involves the use of liquid nitrogen.
If the keratosis has become extremely thickened and raised or if there is a suspicion that it may be turning cancerous surgery may be appropriate. The procedure may involve a biopsy to sample. The keratosis is removed with a surgical curette or cutting out with a scalpel.
