A few things about Curettage
The curettage is one of the most simple Seborrheic Keratosis removal methods and a lot of people chose to do it at home (for your own safety and to avoid infections, pain and other complications I recommend you to ask a doctor to do it).
The curettage is done by scrapping the Seborrheic Keratosis growths with an instrument called curette (it’s like a spoon shaped can be found in the most pharmacies). The curettage procedure is a bit painful and to avoid that the doctors use a local anesthesia. If you are doing it at home, you can use some ice cubes to avoid the pain caused by scrapping.
Keep in mind that the curettage procedure may make your Seborrheic Keratosis bleed and may let you some scars that will get hill over time (or not). If you want to avoid the scars … let the curettage to be done by a dermatologist.
Why I recommend the dermatologist for curettage?
– They are DOCTORS and have experience
– They can examine your Seborrheic Keratosis and tell you if your growths are really Seborrheic Keratosis and not some malign growths.
– They use a local anesthesia to avoid the pain (I’m sure that you won’t like the pain caused by curettage)
– They will use electrocauttery if your growths are too big and you may develop permanent scars.
