I occasionally find a little raised lump of dead skin on my shoulders. They're maybe 4mm in diameter and darker than the rest of my skin. They're not freckles, moles or liver spots, they just scrape off with a finger nail. The skin underneath is obviously new and pink but not damaged - what I'm pulling off is dead skin. it's not like I'm pulling off a live piece of tissue.
I've just found something similar on my nipples (I'm male). Several small patches, darker than pink, 1mm. Again, they just scrape off, like dead skin.
I do get patches on my jaw - I think those are called granuloma. These other ones aren;t grainy, though they're just dead skin.
I'm not worried that they're a problem, I'd just like to read up on them to know their cause. But I don't even know how to describe them to Google.
Anyone know what I'm talking about? Can anyone suggest the right words so I can at least read up on it?
