Seborrheic Keratosis Remedies

Jan 16, 2018

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".

I have had a seborrheic keratosis just below my eye for a couple of years now. It started off looking like a small age spot but over the course of a couple of years it became very large and darker in colour and had a raised crusty appearance. I was becoming very self conscious of it as it really looked worse if I put makeup on it. After trying numerous remedies including ACV which just made it very sore and looked 100 times worse, I decided to try aloe Vera gel. As I had tried so many different remedies I really was not expecting any miracle cures whatsoever.

I started applying the store bought aloe Vera gel about 5 or 6 times per day. After about a week or 10 days I noticed that the keratosis had changed in appearance. It was looking much flatter and slightly blotchy. Being very encouraged by this I began applying the gel more often, up to 8 times per day or whenever I thought about it. I am pleased to say that after another week it is now very pale in colour, and has no raised appearance. I feel confident that with continued application of the aloe Vera that the seborrheic keratosis will go away altogether.

I understand that people have had great results with ACV and I am an avid fan of ACV for other purposes but I believe with a seborrheic keratosis on the face you can remove it much more discreetly with aloe Vera. Just apply and watch it fade away gently.

Several years ago I was diagnosed with seborrheic keratosis in several places, and the Doctor used liquid nitrogen to freeze it. It was very painful and it came back. Next I tried burning it off myself using a soldering iron. It was much less painful but eventually came back, perhaps not as fast as before. So next I used some Chaga tea and extract, I put it on once a day for several weeks which actually made it smaller (NO PAIN) but it didn't completely go away. Next I tried Methylene blue (You can buy this for fish in the pet store to treat fungal infection) I suspected the Seborrheic keratosis is fungal in triggering it because it seems to come out in dark moist areas of the skin, especially on my back because I sleep on my back and sweat at night.

The methylene blue worked well. Just one dose and it dried up and fell off. But eventually came back and I had to repeat it. Since the MB stains I was looking for another cleaner remedy. I tried Garlic cloves, a slice taped to it, and I did seem to make it smaller after a few days of treatment, but I wanted something easier.

Now I tried my best cure yet:

I mixed up DMSO (Pure) with distilled water 50/50 in a 2 oz dropper bottle with 1/8 tsp pure potassium Iodide crystals and 500 mg niacin. I put this on once a day after my shower each eve. It was clean and didn't stain anything. The spots slowly got smaller & after a month are about 1/3 the original size or the smaller ones are gone completely. I am keeping this up until all are gone. I am also going to do some candida detox protocols to get rid of the systemic fungal. It also got rid of my brown liver spots when I used it on them.

I have the cure! My Barnacle was on the side of my breast. My GP assured me that is was nothing to worry about and it was not cancerous. The Barnacle began to grow and the skin on it was rough. My bra was constantly rubbing and making it itch. It grew to the size of my thumb nail. I decided to treat it myself with Petty Spurge which I had used successfully in the past to remove warts. After 2 weeks it had fallen off and left only proud smooth skin. There is scar tissue which is slowly healing with the help of Arnica Cream.

If you decide to try Petty Spurge – Be warned, it is extremely powerful!!!!!

One tiny drop twice a day only on the Barnacle itself. Avoid any contact with surrounding skin! I couldn't be happier to be without my Barnacle.

Where do I buy it?

It is also called Milkweed. I believe it grows wild in CA according to the map. I am in Florida and will have to go buy a plant.

Hope that helps.

We are lucky here in South Australia as Petty Spurge grows wild in many parts of our state.

Be particular and get it to soak into the senile warts and not run down your face or body skin as this is wasteful because you only get a drop from each cutting. It really gets in to kill the root of the wart.
