    I don't think there is any herbal remedy to get rid of them. it can be surgically removed by a plastic surgeon.

    Thank you ashma for your fast reponse. Aren't there any creams or medicine besides surgery that can remove. So what are the surgical options ?

    Seborrheic keratoses can be removed by curettage, cryosurgery or electrosurgery.
    Ointments,Creams,or other medication can neither cure nor prevent seborrheic keratoses.

    yup, surgery is the option. If your clothes irritates it, you can cover it with an adhesive bandage to prevent rubbing and irritation.

    if you get it removed,your doctor will give you suggestions how to care for the wound as it heals. You need to clean the area regularly and apply some antibiotic ointment to prevent further infection. There are not much complications, but they can itch and rub or catch on clothing, thereby becoming inflamed. so you need to apply some bandage to cover it for sometime. seborrheic keratoses are benign so they are not danger to an individual's health.

    Often referred to as "barnacles of life," "wisdom spots," "age spots," or even mistakenly as "warts," seborrheic keratoses (SK) are the most common non-cancerous growth to develop in association with aging skin. These incredibly superficial growths form from the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. And while considered annoying and often unsightly, the seborrheic keratosis may not be so senile after all. A look at a random group of Australians proved SKs are not the sole domain of the mature set. An impressive 23.5% of those between the tender ages of 15-30 years also had at least a single SK. Despite this myth busting info, the statistics support that maturity goes hand in hand with the seborrheic keratosis. By the age of 75, another look at those Australians revealed 100% sported at least one "wisdom spot."

    SKs certainly aren't limited to those living Down Under. Similar U.S. studies would suggest that given time, everyone will find an SK lurking on the skin. And by the way, gender plays no favorites; men and women are equally affected.
