Hi @1943, you'll notice that I moved your message to the Skin Health group. I did this so you can more easily connect with others who may have experience with this skin condition. Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common noncancerous skin growths in older adults. While we wait for others to join the conversation, here's some information from Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/seborrheic-keratosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20353878

1943, are the skin keratoses in an area that they are irritating or bleeding?

Good evening @1943. Please let me welcome you to Connect and the Skin Health group. I have been "fighting" very difficult skin issues for a couple of years now. The itching is my main nightmare. I have changed everything that touches my skin, cosmetics, bedding, laundry soap, shampoo, etc. etc. I use a daily Rx ointment and an OTC anti-itch pill. I am currently struggling to get rid of some pretty awful areas on and around my knee. I had a TKR, total knee replacement 7 weeks ago and the skin on that leg is having a tough time. I don't know if this outbreak is from the surgery or not. What makes me wonder is that only the surgery leg is covered with itch evidence.

What medications, both topical and pill form have you experienced.

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.
Chris
