Shhh! Anti-Aging Remedies No One Needs To Know Except You: What Can I Do To Fix My Unsightly Blemishes?

  • Anonymous reader asked for help to get rid of small brown spots on the skin
  • To be on the safe side, Inge recommends seeing a dermatologist for a diagnosis
  • She says it could be seborrheic keratosis; harmless, but can multiply with age

Q I’m 84 and very fit but have small brown spots on my skin. They are painless but unsightly. I have tried Dermol and QV creams with no effect. Can you suggest anything that might help?

A How frustrating! The creams you mention are for itchy skin conditions like eczema; they are not the right course of action.

Based on your description, dermatologist Dr. Firas Al-Niaimi (drfirasalniaimi.co.uk) that you have seborrheic keratosis, which is harmless but can multiply with age.

“The NHS stopped treating these years ago, but a dermatologist can remove them privately by freezing them with cryotherapy, shaving them off with a scalpel or lasering them off,” he says.

It’s important that you see a dermatologist for a diagnosis anyway, he says. “I’ve gotten a couple of skin cancers over the years called keratosis.”

You don’t have to worry, but better safe than sorry. The cost of removal, he says, “depends on the number of lesions and the method chosen, but typically starts at around £350.”
