ABSTRACT
Freckles, small, unraised brown spots on the skin. Freckles are harmless, consisting of natural pigment that has collected in the outer skin. Freckles may result from exposure to the sun's rays or to a sun lamp. Persons with light skin and blond or red hair are more likely to develop freckles than others. Freckles commonly develop in childhood, are profuse during adolescence, and often disappear completely in later years.
