Your Natural Remedy For Actinic Keratosis

What Is Actinic Keratosis?

Actinic keratosis (AK), or, solar keratosis is the most common precancer which forms on the skin from longterm exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Either from the sun or, tanning beds. 

Actinic keratosis (AK) derive from persistent exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. So, in the unfortunate case that you already have AKs, you will likely develop more actinic keratoses (plural) in the future. 

Since AK’s have the potential to develop into squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), this puts you at a higher risk to develop skin cancer as SCC is a common, yet invasive form of AKs.

Identifying Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis frequently surfaces as small scaly, dry, or crusty patches of skin. These patches are sometimes raised and may be white, pink, light, red, dark tanned, flesh-toned or a combination of colours. Since the patches are rough in texture, they’re often easier to see.

Where Does Actinic Keratosis Appear?

The abrasions are commonly found on sun-exposed areas of the skin. Such as the face, ears, scalp, lips and shoulders as well as the back of the hands and forearms. Actinic Cheilitis is another form of AKs which forms on the lower lip.

Should I Be Worried?

Although only 5-10% of AKs develop into skin cancer, a large majority of squamous cell carcinomas begin as AKs. So, if you think you may have AKs, contact your dermatologist.

Stay Informed On Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis is evidence of prolonged sun exposure, and having AKs increases your risk for cancer. Seeing that having one AKs likely means that you’ve developed more, this may convert into an increasingly elevated risk of developing SCC. And an untreated SCC could become invasive, and even deadly.

I Think I Have Actinic Keratosis. What Should I Do?

If you think that you have AKs (Actinic Keratosis), seek attention from a dermatologist as soon as possible. A dermatologist will be able to diagnose the abrasions medically and advise any treatment – if needed. Since actinic keratosis, when detected early, can be healed, it’s best to diagnose the abrasions right away before they have the chance to turn cancerous. In fact, any AKs that are found on the neck or head should be checked right away as these areas tend to develop aggressive cancers.

To prevent further damage, seek shade and always wear sun protection such as hats, eyewear, broad-spectrum sunscreen and sun-safe clothing. This holds true on sunny days as well as cloudy days because the sun’s UV damage is just as damaging.

Actinic Keratosis Risk Factors

While actinic keratosis is treatable when caught early, knowing the risks of developing and what causes AKs may save you from the treatable AKs progressing into squamous cell carcinoma – a potentially deadly cancer.

Factors That Increase Your Risk For Actinic Keratosis

Weak Immune System – Weak immune systems, from medications, or, medical conditions are more susceptible to developing Aks.
Over The Age 40 – Statistically, AKs are most commonly found in people over the age of 40.
Geographic Location – Unfortunately, the closer you live to the equator, the more likely you are to develop AKs.
History of Unprotected Sun Exposure – Exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun and tanning beds increases your risk of developing AKs. Exposure such as working outdoors, frequent sunburns and those with bald scalps or thinning hair.
Fair Skin – Although anyone can develop AKs, they commonly appear on those with fair skin.

What Can I Do?

Remain cautious, thoroughly check yourself monthly and visit your dermatologist annually for a professional exam. Always wear protective sun wear. Simple measures are smart measures!

Actinic Keratosis Warning Signs

By detecting the early stages of AKs it’s then possible to prevent the lesions from turning cancerous. In fact, when AKs are diagnosed during the early stages, nearly all the actinic keratosis(s) may be removed smoothly. When left alone, AKs may advance to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

How To Identify Actinic Keratosis

Location – AKs are mainly found on ultraviolet (UV) areas such as the hands, forearms, shoulders, neck, ears, scalp, face and lips. A variant of AKs, actinic cheilitis, may form on the upper lip.
Size – AKs size can range from a tiny spot to up to an inch in diameter.
Texture – AKs are flat, to slightly raised and are rough, scaly and crusty. They may also have a raised horn shape or bump.
Colour – AKs colours vary and may be skin coloured, tan, pink, red, brown, or silver.

Actinic keratosis is much more easily felt than seen. Especially since the patches may be flat and skin-toned in some cases. The infected area may feel dry and rough and in some cases itchy with a painful pricking/burning sensation. A few AKs look and feel inflamed. AKs may also bleed and develop painful, stubborn sores, also known as ulceration – but, these are uncommon. In some cases, the spots come and go.

What You Can Do

As stated previously, stay vigilant in routinely looking for infected areas. This is especially prevalent if you live in areas close to the equator (sunny).

By checking yourself monthly, and visiting your dermatologist annually, you greatly decrease your chance of developing AKs which may grow into SCC. Should you ever discover any lesions that are persistently growing or bleed, or see any warning signs, contact your dermatologist.

A skilled dermatologist will be able to identify and treat abnormal skin growth. Should you think you have any warning signs, seek a specialist. A dermatologist will also explain the importance of sun protection, as sun protection is the best way to avoid AKs.

Broad-spectrum sunscreen (UVA/UVB), (UV) blocking sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat and sun-protective clothing are the essentials for sun protection. Keep in mind that avoiding the sun between 10 am and 4 pm greatly decreases your chances of developing AKs.

The Setôrē Story

Hi, my name is Eugene and I have been a surfer for 46 years in Costa Rica where the sun is intense. Spending 4 to 6 hours a day surfing; my skin had taken a beating.

My story begins in Los Angeles where I was fortunate enough to meet an herbal doctor named Dosthora Mudalihamy Warnasuriya from Sri Lanka. The doctor and I became good friends and I would travel each fall from Costa Rica to L.A. and spend a month helping him in his clinic.

After 25 years he returned to Sri Lanka continuing his practice of healing the sick - at 92 years old. In 2006 I traveled to Sri Lanka to visit him. After spending 6 weeks with him I was preparing to leave and he asked me what I wanted to learn. In the 15 years, I knew and helped him he never gave me an ancient formula. His formulas were so secret that nobody else in the world had them. They were handed down for generations (2500 years) within the family as they were the original healers for the kings of Sri Lanka.

I showed him my forearms and asked for a treatment for severely sun-damaged skin. My forearms were covered in blotches with scabs that were blue and black in color. So he gave me the formula and gave me his blessing to go and share this recipe with people with many different skin conditions.

I returned to Costa Rica and began using it on my skin. After a few months, the soars began to dissolve. I continued using it for 5 years before I told anyone. I started to share it with a few friends who had sun damage, and they all had great results.

I met a worker who sprayed chemicals for a banana company for 10 years which caused open sore lesions on both of his forearms. The lesions were about one inch in diameter and oozing blood. He told me he had been to see many doctors and taken all types of pills and injections. Nothing worked.

I gave him a bottle of Setôrē Skin Solution and told him to apply it twice a day. I didn’t think it would work on something so severe. I went back to visit him a few months later and his skin looked like a baby’s skin with no open wounds and very minimal scaring.

We are proud today to share Setôrē Oil and all Setôrē products with you, to assist you with almost any skin condition. Thank you for learning about the Setôrē Costa Rica Skin Solution.
