Answer

No ongoing medical therapy is needed unless topical therapy has been employed to treat the lesions. A concentrated solution (40%) of hydrogen peroxide was approved by the FDA in 2017 for in office application to patients with raised seborrheic keratoses. Ammonium lactate and alpha-hydroxy acids have been reported to reduce the height of seborrheic keratoses.
