Actinic keratoses (AK), also known as solar keratoses, are rough, scaly patches on the skin caused by damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

These patches are considered pre-cancerous but can develop into skin cancer if left untreated, making them a vital concern for those with a history of sun exposure. People with fair skin, a history of sunburns, or who spend a lot of time in the sun are at a higher risk of developing actinic keratoses.
