Keratoses: Keratotic (so-called "stucco") lesions are common on the trunk and elsewhere on the body. They are not dangerous but certainly are annoying. Try an otc lotion, such as lac hydrin or amlactin, with Lactic Acid or salicylic acid in it, to soften the top layer of skin. If those lotions aren't strong enough a dermatologist can prescribe one of a number of stronger preparations.

Unsure: These lesions need to be visualized & a history needs to be obtained in order to make an accurate diagnosis.
