Are freckles harmful?
Freckles are harmless. They can sometimes be mistaken for more serious skin problems. Conversely, more serious problems like skin cancer can sometimes simply be passed off as freckles. Anyone who has one or more pigmented spots they are not sure about should be seen by a dermatologist. Treatments are available to lighten or eliminate freckles, the appearance of which bothers their owners.

Freckles are flat, beige, and brown circular spots that are usually the size of the head of a metallic nail. The spots are diverse and can develop on skin exposed to the sun with repeated exposure to the sun. These are especially common in people with red hair and fair complexions. They can appear in children aged 1 or 2 years.

Is it possible to prevent freckles?
Since we cannot modify our own genetic component of freckles, our main preventative measures are aimed at avoiding the sun and protecting ourselves from the sun, including
- Use of sunscreens with a sun protection factor of 50,
- Using 6 inch wide brimmed hats,
- Use of sun protection clothing (shirts, long sleeves, long pants),
- Avoidance of the main hours of the sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Look for shade and stay inside.
- Preventing freckles is more effective than removing freckles. Freckle reduction treatments are more difficult and often unsatisfactory. People with known hereditary tendencies to freckles should start using sunscreen early in their childhood. Much of the skin damage caused by the sun and UV rays usually occurs when children are under the age of 18.
People with fair skin, who are more prone to freckles and sunburns, are also generally at a higher risk of developing skin cancer. Freckles can be a warning sign of sensitive skin, very prone to sunburn and potential skin cancer.
