Actinic keratoses primarily affect individuals with a history of sun exposure, particularly those living in tropical or subtropical regions. Predisposing factors include fair skin, frequent sunburns, prolonged outdoor activities, and compromised immune function. These spots result from abnormal skin cell development due to DNA damage caused by UVB radiation.
