Fibromas are in fact benign tumors of connective tissue which grow on the skin. They can be from 1 millimeter to 1 centimeter big. Their color is the same as the color of the skin most of the time, but they can also be lighter.
Fibromas are not dangerous, but they can be an aesthetic problem as their number increases. They normally appear on the crutches, the neck, the armpits, on the stomach and under the eyelids and breasts.
Nevertheless, they can also pop on other skin parts. Actually, nearly everybody has one fibroma at least.
Fibromas can get bigger, start bleeding or get inflamed. Their size and number increases slowly through the years. It is not known what causes fibromas, but fat deposits are definitely contributors.
There can be a few to a few hundreds of fibromas. Fibromas are diagnosed by a doctor and further treatment is prescribed by a dermatologist.
Fibromas are normally removed during the colder, winter months, when sweating is reduced.
Electrocoagulation, laser surgery or radiosurgery is how the dermatologists remove fibromas. Usually, one treatment is enough for removing them, unless of course their number is too big. In that case, the treatment is done again.
Following the removal, treatment with antibiotics is critical, showers and hygiene are vital for the first 5 day. Hard physical exercises and sweating should be avoided the first days following the procedure so that the healing goes without complications and with success.
Remove Fibromas with Apple Cider Vinegar
- Apple cider vinegar is one of the most effective and powerful homemade remedies.
- Apple cider vinegar can treat a number of health issues, fibromas included.
- Avoid using apple cider vinegar around the eyes so as not to irritate them.
Use water and soap and wash the area around the fibroma carefully.
Take a cotton ball, soak it in water and apply it on the fibroma. Next, take another cotton ball and soak it in apple cider vinegar. Using a bandage, secure the cotton ball on the fibroma. The fibroma is going to become dark first, then dry and it will fall out in the end.
In case there is a scar after the fibroma is removed, you can use English marigold cream or aloe vera gel to treat it. The scar is going to disappear completely if the fibroma wasn’t deep in the skin.
Word of Caution
- Make sure that the vinegar is not spread on the skin surrounding the fibroma since it can irritate it.
- Once the fibroma gets dry, don’t apply apple cider vinegar.
- You mustn’t remove the fibroma. It should fall on its own.
