Abnormally thick buildup of cells.
Redness and bumpiness common on the cheeks or upper arms; it is caused by blocked hair follicles. The patches of irritation are accompanied by a rough texture and small pinpoint white milia.

Skin disorder characterized by light, abnormal patches; congenital, acquired, post- inflammatory, or other causes that destroy pigment-producing cells. Vitiligo and albinism are leukodermas.
macule (plural: maculae)
Flat spot or discoloration on the skin, such as a freckle. Macules are neither raised nor sunken.
Most serious form of skin cancer as it can spread quickly (metastasize). Black or dark patches on the skin are usually uneven in texture, jagged, or raised. Melanomas may have surface crust or bleed.
Epidermal cysts; small, firm papules with no visible opening; whitish, pearl-like masses of sebum and dead cells under the skin. Milia are more common in dry skin types and may form after skin trauma, such as a laser resurfacing.
