Seborrheic Keratosis Natural Remedies

Usually, most of the dermatologists advice the patients affected by seborrheic keratosis to not try to treat themselves. Why? Because this condition occurs in quite a big percentage in elderly people, that might not follow exactly the safety procedures, and therefore, may harm themselves unwillingly.

As a general rule, THERE ARE NO SEBORRHEIC KERATOSIS Natural Remedies. There are people claiming they’ve got rid of this problem with herbs oils, but truth is there is no proof or evidence they had really gotten rid of this problem.

Dry Skin Soaps And Non-Invasive Treatments

Currently, there are on the market lots of so called natural products meant to treat not only this condition, but also other types of warts and verrucas (including the ones produced by the Papillomavirus). Indeed, while some of them can really come in hand for some warts, most of them don’t provide any real benefits, at least not other than hydrating the skin. If there was really a natural non-surgical way of treating seborrheic keratosis for good, then that method would have been published in most of the important dermatology journals and not only, would have been included in the manuals.

Unfortunately for those who were hoping they could get rid of this seborrheic keratosis without paying a visit to the dermatologist, all the dermatology manuals and publications recommend the surgical treatment, but only when there are suspicions of malignancy or patients experience a serious discomfort and can no longer live their lives in a normal way. This can be checked in Fitzpatrick’s Dermatology, in Dermatology Secrets Plus, but also in the Shimitzu’s Textbook of Dermatology.

Instead of spending money on “natural products that will cure anything”, people should choose one of the classic ways of treating this problem and then do their best to prevent it with natural products. For instance, after getting the warts removed with liquid nitrogen, they can take minerals and vitamins, such as vitamins A, D, magnesium and zinc. They can also take milkweed (which has been proven to maintain the skin healthy), and also eliminate from their diets all the foods containing processed oils and sugars.

    Just learn today that I have Seborrheic Keratosis diagnose by a dermatologist. Mine is fairly small and underneath the skin. I read that hydrogen peroxide works. I would like to start using the hydrogen peroxide but I don’t know how much is the mix and if I need to leave on face all night or treat it as a mask that you leave on face for 15 to 20 mins?
    Thank you!

    • Mike D. says:

      20 minutes will be just fine. Keep in mind that you will need to apply it several times.

      If you want my opinion, I would adivce you to let you dermatologist remove it. He will do it in a few minutes without pain, without risk and permanent 🙂

      Take care!

      Elsa: It’s awful! Here’s what’s worked for me.
      I take a shower in luke warm water, too hot and I start to itch.
      Pour hydrogen peroxide on whatever body parts are irritated.
      Then bathe and wash you hair with Aquaaphore or Dove Sensitive
      For the everything but your hands, use Eucerin, “original healing soothing report lotion.
      Then to cover your face, use either the Aquafor oinment, it’s thick! Or Eurcerin has a tube just for faces.
      If you’re more into the natural side, Nutivia Coconut Cooking Oil really works. Just don’t get it in your eyes or they’ll burn.
      Godspeed and Get Well~~

    There are natural treatment’s despite the claim above and it is a disservice to say otherwise. I was diagnosed with a Seborrheic keratoses on my back approximately the size of a nickel, which was raised up from the skin level about 1/8″ overall and was told to either live with it or have a traditional treatment of either Cryosurgery or Electrosurgery. I chose to try using Oil of Oregano with at least 70% Carvacrol, the active ingredient for it’s anti-fungal properties. I applied it topically although infrequently and yet it began to soften, the area reddened, became itchy but it also began to break off in small pieces. It stopped growing and once I realized the effectiveness chose to apply it daily and over the period of 4-5 months it all but disappeared. The skin area is now smooth and the only remnant is what appears to be a mole about 1/4 the size of what the Seborrheic keratoses was before I began the treatment. I realize now that it would have gone away earlier had I used the treatment daily from the outset.

    I would like to know if anyone used natural remedies for seborrheic keratosis and worked. Please share with me, but only if you used them 🙂

  4. mike says:

    Magnesium tablets worked for me.I took one a day for about two months and the keratoses started to crumble at the edges and seemed like the edges were more raised when washing.I could feel it lifting when my nail was at the edges and suddenly it lifted and broke off,very rubbery when off.I understand magnesium is very good for the skin but I was taking it for something else.I am sure it helped get rid of the pesky thing.The tablets were just cheap brand

  5. Diana says:

    Just listen at me: there are NO natural remedies for seborrheic dermatitis. No herbs, no creams (that can treat it), no pills from plants etc.

    The removal methods are the chirurgical ones. So, please, don’t waste your money 🙂

    • Rob Leger says:

      Seborrheic Keratoses…?? There are many natural remedies that work….But a mainstream dermatologist is not going to tell you that because
      #1 he’s ignorant about natural therapies -no training in school…the protocols are all big pharma dominated
      #2 it’s not in his interest to know….He makes his money from drugs and surgery – PERIOD..

      Just check out youtube/google/ If you go for surgery that’s a sure fire way to waste your money – because they always come back later…You have to go for the underlying causes….it’s not a skin problem – it’s a systemic problem that is manifested in the skin…big difference. But no dermatologist is going to tell you that either..He would rather charge you $150++ to freeze them off and see you a year later –hopefully you won’t scar from the aggresive treatment.
      Research non celiac gluten sensitivity …I’m talking about gliaden IGE (not IGA) You can be marginally sensitive to gluten and have all kinds of skin problems and you’ll just mistakenly attribute them to old age – big mistake…Just try avoiding wheat use ACV or hydrogen peroxide/aloe etc for a few months and watch them slowly get smaller…and listen to the pompous idiots telling you there’s no cure haha. No matter, irrevelant. I know what i’m talking about – i had it for years before and had them frozen off and they came back especially if i have a lot of wheat. Now i don’t and my doctor told me “there’s no cure ” either lol. Surgery is only a short term expensive solution…without getting to the cause –It’s not “old age”….association and cause – two different things…

      • NICK says:

        + one thing that I know for someone who works in pharma industry … the meds aren’t made to cure 🙂

        Anyway, Rob, what natural remedy have you used for seborrheic keratosis?

      • kathy says:

        could you please tell me how to use the hydrogen peroxide aloe? Thank you so much I need help bad …

        • ANK says:

          Hello Kathy,
          What kind of hydrogen peroxide do you have?

        • Chloie says:

          are you sure it is seborrheic deitrmitas?? i do not know of any natural ways to treat this, but i have heard that denorex’s therpeutic tar shampoo is good better than neutrogena tar shampoo. the problem is it is hard to find. if you have any bad inflamed intact sores you can also try putting a little cortaid cream on it overnight. it will help with the itching and swelling. if none of this helps, i would see a dermatologist. good luck.also, if you find the tar shampoos are not working you can try nizeral a-d shampoo. sometimes this works when all else fails. it is an anti-fungal, unlike the others.

      • Ron Britt says:

        Rob Leger: Please advise the routine to follow with peroxide/aloe (i.e. apply peroxide to each spot with cotton ball, let dry and apply aloe??…and how often.) I am 85 yo and have had many black spots on my back for years. Got the VA to use liquid nitrogen on a couple of them, just as a trial (the derm. didn’t want to do it because it’s considered a cosmetic treatment, which they don’t do, but did just the few spots at my insistence. I’d really appreciate your response because it’s embarrassing to have to wear a white tee shirt to go in the pools or at the beach….most unsightly!! Oh, and the VA thing was useless.
        Thanx for your original input and for any more advice. ron

  6. Sally says:

    I have a number of these spots, diagnosed by dermatologist. I used frankincense oil on two on my face and one on my leg. They went away completely although it took a few applications. I was a skeptic about the whole essential oils but this worked.. I haven’t attacked all my f them but was glad to get them off my face.

  7. Lynn Jackman says:

    I am using apple cider vinegar then applying oregano oil with fractionated coconut oil. It is taking time but my husbund has them all over his back. They have gotten very red inflamed but a day or two later drying up and shrinking. I feel this is a virus and it is being drawn out of his pores as some new ones have popped and then they disappear.

  8. Mary B says:

    Just in reply to Lynn…I have successfully treated my SK’s through twice daily applications of ACV, hydrogen peroxide, castor oil and skin brushing. Admittedly, it does take time and persistence, but it paid off for me. I started treatment in June 2015, and I was clear of the SK’s in January 2016. The SK’s were numerous, and situated on my torso – breasts, tummy and back. I’m unsure whether the same treatment would work for other people with SK’s, but I want to let other sufferers know that I had a positive result without visiting a dermatologist.

  9. Donna says:

    What protocol did you use?

  10. Bev says:

    How many milligrams of Magnesium did you take per day? Did you take it morning and night? Do you remember what brand you took?

    Thank you for sharing what worked for you.

  11. Bev says:

    Aquaphor is available in most drug stores and Amazon. It comes in a jar or a tube. It’s a lot like vaseline, just a little smoother. I ususally buy it at Walgreens.

  12. Pat says:

    I apply milk of magnesia to my keratoses just before my shower. Doing this the keratoses eventually dry up and flake off. Takes a couple of weeks depending on the size.

  13. nettie says:

    Milk of Magnesia BEFORE you shower? Just wondering if you meant AFTER you shower otherwise it would do no good to apply and wash off immediately?

  14. Silk says:

    Mary B,
    Would you please provide detailed instructions of each step (and their order)? Since it worked for you, I would really appreciate having all information necessary to duplicate your success! Was your SK diagnosed by a Dr to start? Thanks very much – I really hope to try this for 6+ months but would love to be sure what I’m doing is a worthwhile attempt during all of that time.
