Do you know what fibromas are? They’re small skin growths that look like small nodes and can be anywhere from 1 mm to 1 cm in size. Fibromas are actually connective tissue benign tumors and although they’re not health detrimental they can be uncomfortable and can pose an aesthetic problem, depending on where they appear.
Fibromas are fairly common and can appear anywhere, on your neck, under your breasts, on the stomach, the eyelids, under your arms and crutches, literally anywhere. They’re so common that almost everyone has or has had a fibroma or two, maybe even without knowing it was a fibroma. It’s still not entirely known why fibromas appear, many health experts believe that fat deposits contribute somewhat.
Even though they’re not dangerous as we already said, fibromas can become inflamed, grow in size and even start bleeding which can be problematic. As we age their number and size can increase and many people decide to get them removed to avoid complications.
When and if you decide to remove a fibroma you should know that they’re usually removed during the colder months since the sun exposure is reduced to minimal and you don’t sweat as much.
When your dermatologist diagnoses you with fibroma they usually recommend the best course of treatment. The most common removal methods are electrocoagulation, radiosurgery or laser surgery. For the removal of one fibroma one treatment is enough, but if their number is higher you might require a couple of treatments, your dermatologist will tell you best.
After the fibroma removal treatment you’ll need to treat the wound with an antibiotic and follow a strict hygienic routine for 5 days. IN the days following the surgery you’ll also be instructed to avoid sweating and physical activities so that your wounds can heal and the treatment is successful.
IS THERE A MORE NATURAL TREATMENT FOR FIBROMAS THAT DOESN’T INVOLVE A SURGERY?
As a matter of fact there is and it’s the simplest remedy you know. Apple cider vinegar is one of the most effective natural remedies for fibromas thanks to its acidity and can successfully help you remove them in a short period of time. Just don’t use it near your eyes because it will irritate them.
HOW TO USE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TO REMOVE FIBROMAS?
First wash the surrounding area carefully with some soap and water. Then wash the fibroma with some water and you can start the treatment. Soak a cotton pad in some ACV and apply it on the fibroma, securing it with a bandage to keep it in place. As the time passes you’ll notice the fibroma getting darker before it falls out on its own.
If you’ve had a larger fibroma you may notice a scar left behind once it falls off but that’s normal. You can treat the scar with some aloe Vera gel.
- Don’t apply vinegar on the surrounding skin, the area of application should be minimal so that you avoid skin irritation.
- Once the fibroma gets dry stop using ACV
- Don’t prick or force the fibroma to fall off, it will fall off on its own when it’s time
