Spot or Lentigo is a proliferation of modified melanin cyto on the outer
layer of skin. The exact cause is not yet known completely but it is expected
that abnormality of melanin cyto (the pigment generating cyto)
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 cyto.
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 cyto will regenerate
eventually without leaving scars.
It is corn shaped, which is stuck in skin due to proliferation of dead
skin cyto in narrow area. Some pain can be incurred by pressing it from
top and you will see the central nucleus if you cut or shave it.
Corn is actually a defensive mechanism of skin to prevent it to be damaged or
penetrated by repetitive external stimulation, pressure, or friction.
Persistent resistance leads to developing dead skin layer to corn shaped,
which arise pain and irritation feeling. 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.
Wart is an infected disease of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). It is most likely to
be seen on hand, leg, foot, or pubes. The occurrence areas, symptom, and treatment
method can vary depending on the 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.
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 cyto 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.
