Seborrheic Keratoses (SKs) are one of the most common dermatologic lesions seen by dermatologists. They are biologically benign and do not usually require removal for medical reasons; however, many patients choose removal due to cosmetic preferences. Currently, cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen spray) is the most common mode of removal . Although patients often desire an effective topical treatment, few have been developed that rival the effects of cryotherapy. This article aims to review current available topical treatments, with a particular focus on both the benefits and potential pitfalls of a novel treatment, concentrated Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2).
