Skin warts, or fibroma, are benign growths on the skin that appear like tiny soft nodules, varying in size. They can be lightly pigmented or have the same color as the skin. They are not cancerous, but with time, even more can appear and cause an aesthetic problem. They mostly occur in middle-aged people, usually on the neck, armpits, groin, under the breasts, on the belly, eyelids, and other parts of the skin. It is not a rare issue, as almost every person has had at least one fibroma during their lifetimes. Although more of an aesthetic issue, fibroma can grow and bleed if injured.
As you get older they can grow in number and size. The exact cause of their occurrence is not yet known, but genetics and obesity are linked to fibroma. Their numbers can range from a few to a few hundred.
Fibroma can be diagnosed by a dermatologist who will recommend the best way of treatment. The best time to remove them is in the winter when it’s colder and you don’t sweat as much.
The medical treatment of fibroma includes electrocoagulation, applanation, and radiosurgery or laser treatment. If there are fewer fibroma on the skin, a single treatment should work. However, if there are more, the treatment must be repeated.
The removal of these benign growths on the skin usually leaves scabs that can be removed by applying an antibiotic on the spot for about five days. After the removal procedure, be careful not to sweat for a few days so you don’t irritate the area. Thankfully, there are some natural remedies that can help you remove fibroma easily.
How to use apple cider vinegar to remove fibroma?
ACV (apple cider vinegar) is one of the best natural remedies. It can treat numerous conditions including removal of fibroma, thanks to its acidity. Don’t mistake ACV for vinegar – vinegar can irritate the eyes and create new problems if used on fibroma around the eyes.
Here’s how to remove fibroma using apple cider vinegar:
Clean the area around the fibroma thoroughly using only water and a mild soap. You can try soaking the growths in the water or rub them lightly with a toothbrush. Allow the area to dry.
Soak a cotton ball in the ACV and apply it on the fibroma, securing it with a bandage. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse the area with water. To successfully remove the fibroma, the process needs to be repeated for three times a day until they completely dissapear. It usually takes a week, but can take more.
After the first treatment, you will notice that the growths are changing their color and will eventually fall off with repeated treatments. A scab will appear depending on the size of the growth, but it can be rubbed with some marigold ointment or Aloe Vera gel to reduce their appearance. If the fibroma is not deep or big, there won’t even be a scar.
Note: please make sure that the apple cider vinegar doesn’t run on the area around the fibroma, or it will blush. Once a scab appears, do not put more apple cider vinegar on it! Even if the scab itches, do not tear it – wait for it to disappear by itself.
This is a natural treatment that works in a lot of cases, with people all over the world confirming it gives amazing results.
