DSAP causes dry, itchy lesions on the arms and legs. These lesions usually begin as small brownish-red spot which expands gradually. Limiting the exposure to sun can stop the lesions from growing. The risk factors of DSAP are that it can lead to the development of precancerous cells. Some people may also develop DSAP due to immunity problems. There is no treatment for gaining complete relief from the condition. Ointments and oral medicines can however control the symptoms to a certain extent.
