A seborrheic keratosis (also known as "Seborrheic verruca," "Senile keratosis," and "Senile wart" is a noncancerous benign skin growth that originates in keratinocytes. Like liver spots, seborrheic keratoses are seen more often as people age. In fact they are sometimes humorously referred to as the "barnacles of old age".

[YEA] Seborrheic Keratosis: I've been using ACV daily for about 3 weeks now - about 4 times a day. The acid dries up the bump and now it's starting to harden to where I can pick off the scab that's forming. I should be more patient and just keep applying ACV via a q-tip, rather than trying to peel it off.
Delighted this works, after trying lemon, coconut oil, yogurt, witch hazel and one expensive cream that I returned to Amazon.
By using a q-tip swab, make sure the end is soaked with ACV then apply it just to the bump, otherwise, the skin that is not affected will dry out too. Add ratio of 1:1 water and be careful not to get near eyes. I would not use a band-aid unless you can isolate the ACV just to the affected area b/c the acid sensitizes other parts of your skin at the same time.
