In brief: Solar lentigo
Solar lentigo - these are related to sun exposure and seen on areas of skin normally exposed to sunlight (e.
g. Face, hands). They are benign lesions, less than 5mm in diameter but they may merge to form larger spots. The peak age used to be 30-50 but is getting younger with increasing sun exposure. Treatment is with liquid nitrogen or bleaching cream.
