Cryotherapy for skin lesions

What are skin lesions?

Basically, a skin lesion is a part of the skin that has an abnormal growth or appearance compared to the surrounding skin. There are two main categories of skin lesions – primary and secondary.

Primary skin lesions are abnormal skin conditions that can be present at birth or acquired over a person’s lifetime.

Secondary skin lesions are a result of irritated or manipulated primary skin lesions.

What do skin lesions look like?

Skin lesions can be seen in different sizes, shapes and forms. Also, they can appear isolated or in groups. Mascules, for example, are flat and well-circumcised lesions up to 1 cm. Patches are similar, but larger. Vesicles are another type of skin lesions, which can reach up to 1 cm and look like clear, fluid-filled blisters.

What causes skin lesions?

Skin lesions are another common skin issue, often caused by acne, cold sores, eczema and other skin conditions.

One of the most common causes of skin lesions are infections such as viruses (herpes, HIV, or human papillomavirus), bacteria, or fungi. Skin lesions can also be a result of an allergic reaction, or side effects of medications. Unprotected sun exposure can also be a reason for skin lesions.
