Disseminated Superficial Actinic Porokeratosis also know as DSAP is a skin condition of several dry scaly rings.

It is most commonly found on the arms and legs typically in patients that have skin type 1 or 2 and is twice as likely to be found in women than men. The age range of occurrence is between 30 – 50 years old.

DSAP is caused by excessive sun exposure in people with fair skin. Generally the condition is harmless, but unfortunately there is no cure for DSAP. However, ways to prevent DSAP is to avoid extended periods of sun exposure and to wear sun screen.

Though the condition is harmless, it is always a good idea to have regular skin examinations done by a board certified dermatologist.
