Freckles

This disease is inherited as an autosomal dominant character and depends upon the presence of an abnormally large amount of melanin in the epidermis.It manifests as asymptomatic small,circular,brownish macules,2 to 3 mm in diameter which start appearing early in life on the face,dorsal aspects of the hands and extensors of the forearms,and keep on increasing in number as the age advances.Continued exposure to sunlight leads to appearance of new lesions and darkening of the old ones.
Treatment.

Appearance of new lesions can be minimised by protecting the skin from exposure to sunlight and by the use of topical sunscreens.
