What causes calcium deposits in skin?

Answer

Calcium deposits in the skin can be caused by several different factors. The most frequent form of this condition occurs in areas of the skin that have suffered tissue damage. A second form of this condition is the result of an excessive amount of calcium in the blood. The third type of calcium deposits on the skin affects children who are born with soft tissue congenital defects. This condition can also occur after surgery at or around the site of the surgery. These deposits are often treated with home remedies, such as the application of aloe vera or olive oil.
