Lentigo
Lentigo or spot is a proliferation of modified melanin cells on the outer layer of skin. The exact cause is not yet known completely but it is expected that abnormality of melanin cells (the pigment generating cells) or congenital issue triggers lentigo production.

Lentigo does not incur itchiness or pain but people want to remove it for aesthetic purpose. In general, laser is widely used to eliminate lentigo cells. If the lentigo is deeply placed, you may feel like you have paved surface after lentigo removal treatment but unless it is very big, your skin cells will regenerate eventually without leaving scars.

Corn
Corn is mostly occurred on hand or foot where it is highly opened to external stimulation. It is a skin condition of corn shape proliferation of dead skin cell in narrow area. Some pain can be incurred by pressing it on top and you can find the center of corn by cutting it.

Actually, corn may occur on any body parts but it frequently occurs on hand and foot so it can be very inconvenient which affects everyday life. It looks very similar to callus but size of corn is smaller and has its distinct corn shape with some pain.

Cause of Corn

Cause of Corn

External Stimulation and Friction are the Main Cause

Corn is actually a defensive mechanism of skin to prevent it to be damaged or penetrated by repetitive external stimulation, pressure, or friction. Thus, the dead skin cells develop corn shape thicker skin layer and it generates irritation and pain on the area. It is mostly occurred on people wearing pointy shoes or high heels for long time and also on people who enjoy sports using palm or sole of foot a lot. Wearing comfortable shoes to minimize putting pressure on protruding bone or even removing the bone itself can prevent Corn generation.

Wart
Wart is an infected disease of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). It is most likely to be seen on hand, leg, foot, or pubes. The frequent areas of occurrence, symptom, and treatment method can all vary depending on the different genotype.

It is frequently occurred in childhood and adolescent period. In some cases, it can naturally heal as the child ages. If warts spread to other body parts, special medical help at the clinic is required. Wart is a disease incurred by virus, thus infection by contact is also possible. So, the patient is recommended to be careful when using public toilet or furniture since the virus is contagious in room temperature for several months.

Types of Wart

Types of Wart

Hand and Toe Nail Wart

This type of wart can be found on lip, ear, or nose as well as hand and toe nail. This type is frequently found on young children.

Palm and Sole Wart

Wart occurred on palm or sole gets pressed by weight and penetrates inside the body like corn instead of protruding outside as typical wart. In this case, it is very difficult to identify whether it is corn, callus, or wart with naked eyes, thus more accurate diagnose is required.

Flat Wart

Most cases, flat wart appears on facial areas and it is widely seen from child to adult in 30’s. It is relatively small about 1~3mm in size, and the texture is smooth with almost no protrusion from the skin. It can be quite stressful to young patients due to its appearance on face.

Milium
Milium is white or yellow round shaped pocket with size of 1mm that reside on shallow skin layer. It looks very similar with millet pimple which contains sebum inside but milium is filled with dead skin cell instead.

Some people try to squeeze milium out in a similar method as squeezing acne. Milium is different type of skin trouble, thus squeezing by hand will cause skin inflammation. Squeezing milium on eye area may damage nerves, so it is highly recommended to seek medical help by physician.

Cause of Milium

Cause of Corn

Over Proliferated Dead Skin Cell

Milium development can be triggered naturally but sometimes blister or skin burn may cause the disease. It is most likely to be found on cheek and eyelid in all age range.

Syringoma
Syringoma is one of many benign tumors that origins from eccrine sweat gland. It is frequently found on eye area, cheek, and forehead in women after puberty. Sometimes, it is found on patient’s trunk, genitals, arms or legs.

Syringoma can be easily differentiated from millum since it is consisted of 1~3mm in size with skin color and flat shape. It rarely accompanies pain or itchiness but it is not favorable aesthetically.
