Seborrheic Keratosis Removal With Hydrogen Peroxide
One skin condition becoming more and more common is seborrheic keratosis. This is a skin condition which involves the abnormal growth of skin cells. It eventually leads to the formation of big unsightly brown growths. These growths look like they can easily be picked off because of the appearance of being ‘stuck on’ that they have. It would have been pretty much easy if the growths could be pulled because of the way they look. The growths form different colors with some of them being pale and some being darker. These growths occur in clusters though it is not uncommon to find a single growth somewhere on the body.
It is quite easy to tell if you are suffering from seborrheic keratosis or not. This can be seen in the common characteristics that these growths share. For instance, most seborrheic keratosis growths are scaly, slightly raised and oval in shape. There have been cases of people having small lesions on the skin that change over time, only for the doctor to tell them that they are suffering from skin cancer, the point being that you must ask a doctor to diagnose your skin condition and not self diagnose as you may not be correct. Seborrheic keratoses are benign but it is important to keep track of what your growths look like. If you notice any changes in their appearance, especially their color or shape, it is best that you have a doctor check it out, just to be on the safe side. If your growths show signs of irritation or bleeding then you must book an appointment with your doctor. A seborrheic keratosis can become irritated by jewelry or clothing but you should not presume this is the case.
There are a number of treatments for seborrheic keratosis. There are over the counter treatments, prescription treatments and natural home remedies for keratosis. The home remedies are safe to use, however they can take a while before you achieve the desired effect. Out of all these options, none is as powerful, or as effective as seborrheic keratosis removal with hydrogen peroxide.
Hydrogen peroxide works by burning away the growth gradually over repeated treatments. When applying the H2O2 solution, it is recommended that a cotton ball be used and that it should only be applied to the growths alone. If it comes into contact with the surrounding skin, then some irritation may result. To prevent this, most people apply petroleum jelly or lotion to the surrounding skin to prevent the solution burning. After the application, the growths will first turn white, then pink after which they will form scabs. These scabs will then dry and fall off leaving no scarring.
