Photos of a a scaly, discolored patch of skin on Trump's face have gone viral - here's what it is, according to a Yale dermatologist
President Donald Trump's skin has been a hot topic of debate for years.
Recently, the internet lit up with a new question about the president's skin: what is that discolored circle on the left side of his face?We know a bit about the Trump's skin-care habits and medical conditions already. He has rosacea, a reddening skin condition that he takes antibiotics to combat. Makeup artists have also speculated that Trump's facial coloring suggests he uses self-tanner or a tanning bed. Plus, the president enjoys being out in the sun - he has logged more than 100 golf course visits during his 16 months in office, which is enough to work up a golfer's tan.
But according to dermatologist Kathleen Suozzi from the Yale School of Medicine, the barnacle-looking patch of skin on Trump's face is probably not a sun spot, and it likely has nothing to do with his rosacea or tanning regimen, either.
Suozzi needed only a quick glance at a recent photo of Trump to venture a guess: it's likely a skin growth called keratosis.
Here's her full assessment.
