Keratoses or Plaques: It would be interesting to note if these spots or rough or smooth; if they have changed shape or color; or have hair growing out of them. The most common benign thing is known as a keratin plaque. I believe skin troubles should always be evaluated in person so that the visual part of this diagnosis can occur.
