Picture 2 above reveals a middle aged man with multiple flesh coloured lesions which are harmless and but can look unsightly, the condition is called Sebaceous hyper-plasia.

If we look back to our diagram of the sebaceous gland over time this has been outputting lots of oil and the skin around the pore has enlarged. This is easily treated by Dr Prasad depending on the size of the lesions with Electro-cautery device, Conmed 2000 under local anaesthetic.
