The forehead in adults is subject to many skin conditions. Exposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the most significant threat to the skin of the forehead. A lifetime of sun exposure puts one at risk for precancerous lesions such as actinic keratoses. Melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma can also result from exposure from the sun. Acne can affect the forehead in adults as well, although it is less common in adults than in teens. Skin changes from acne, such as scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, are more common in adults. Adults can also suffer from overgrowth of oil glands called sebaceous hyperplasia.
