Hello,
Stucco keratosis is characterized by benign growths on the skin especially the extremities. The modes of treatment are topical 5% Imiquimod, scraping the lesion, cryotherapy and electrodessication.  Red light collagen therapy is used for healing of wounds like diabetic skin ulcers, serious burns, and severe oral sores and proposed to be helpful in erasing wrinkles but I am unaware of its use in stucco keratosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
