Lugol's Iodine.

An Earth Clinic reader reports that topical application of Lugol's Iodine, shrank his wife's lipoma.

Lugol's Iodine for a Lipoma Instructions

Use only lugol's iodine and not another type of iodine.  Lugol's comes in 3% and 5% bottles. Amazon will not allow sellers to post 5% concentrations  on its site, but you can easily find 2% and 3% lugol's online.

The stronger the percentage of lugol's the less you need. Even though the Earth Clinic poster did not specify the concentration, we're guessing he used 3% Lugol's Iodine.

Apply a couple of drops of lugol's to your lipoma.

Caution: Lugol's Iodine will stain! Be very careful applying the drops of lugol's. Wait until it dries before putting on clothes.

Apply the tincture twice a day.

What Brand of Lugol's is Best?

The top brand in the USA is J. Crow's. They have been selling Lugol's for several decades and is a highly-rated brand. You can find them on Amazon.

My wife had a lipoma on her back and after a bit or research decided to treat it by painting lugol's iodine on it twice per day for a few days with a Qtip. Each day it got smaller and smaller until it was gone! I would consider giving this a try.
