Seborrheic Keratosis : Effective Natural Treatment with Homeopathy

Seborrheic Keratosis refers to non-cancerous, harmless growths on the skin. They are painless and benign growths that arise from the outer layer of skin cells (keratinocytes). The color of these growths may vary from pink, yellow, white, grey to brown and black. These growths do not spread from one person to another through skin contact. Homeopathic medicines stop the further progression of skin lesions in seborrheic keratosis and also work to gradually reduce the size as well as the number of the already present skin growths. Thuja, Nitric Acid, and Sepia are the top homeopathic medicines for seborrheic keratosis.

Causes of Seborrheic Keratosis

The exact reason for seborrheic keratosis is not known. Its appearance is seen as a part of the normal aging process. People above the age of 50 years are at an increased risk to develop this condition. Seborrheic keratosis is seen to run in families, so having a family member with a similar condition can increase the risk.

Symptoms of Seborrheic Keratosis

The skin lesions in cases of seborrheic keratosis appear as light colored spots, slightly raised from the skin. They begin as light-colored growths and tend to darken gradually. They have a rough surface, like a warty growth. The size of the lesions varies from a few millimeters to several centimeters. The number of the skin growths in seborrheic keratosis varies widely from person to person. The number ranges between single to multiple skin growths present in clusters or groups. The location of the skin lesions in seborrheic keratosis mainly includes the face, chest, shoulders, and neck. Seborrheic keratosis usually doesn’t cause symptoms. However, in some of the cases, itching or inflammation may be seen. Scratching or picking the growths may cause bleeding and infection. Irritation from rubbing with skin clothes may also be seen in a few cases.

  1. I have these on my back and abdomen, I had a rather large one that increased in size quite quickly, my dermatologist said it would need to be removed surgically. I was booked in for the following week. I went home and after doing some research I decided to try tea tree oil on this lesion and the two smaller ones next to it. Within the first two days, the largest lesion had turned white and was lifting around the edges. The other two had slightly changed colour. Fast forward a week and the largest lesion had come away (although I did help it along in the shower rubbing it with a loofah. I should of just let it come away in its own time but I was feeling quite panicked about having these growths all over my body). The dermatologist was less than impressed and ended up freezing the other two off. That was about two years ago and the one I removed with the tea tree oil has never returned, the ones that were frozen off have new smaller growths appearing. I have tried the tea tree oil on other growths and it does have mixed results, some growths have come off, but some have not. I always go for my skin checks to make sure none of the growths are something more sinister. But if you have been checked and know they are seborrhoea keratosis, then the tea tree might be a cheap, easy way to try and get rid of them. I did apply the tea tree oil undiluted on the area and then covered with a small Band-Aid, replacing it daily after my shower. Once they turn white you know they are starting to come off. Leave them though and do not pick them otherwise they will bleed. Hopefully this helps someone else.

  4. Dr Sharma

    I have an irritable SK about the size of a tooney just above the right ankle for years. A biopsy for cancer was negative 5 years ago.
    I have been treating it with calendula cream and oreganum essential oil drops but it seems to be getting larger lately.
    It is whitish in color, bleeding slightly, and oozing interstitial fluid. Washing with tea-tree foam helps
    taking off the flaking white skin.
    Lately I am having sharp pain shooting up my leg.
    Thank you so much

  8. elaine dolan says:

    I have seborrheic keratosis all over my back and some on the sides of my neck. They sometimes itch. They feel sandy. They are light brown and appear among cherry angiomas on my stomach, chest and arms to a lesser degree. I have inactive herpes II. With age, these seem to proliferate. I have been taking Thuja for about a month and a half and cannot be sure I’ve seen a difference? What did make an obvious difference, but was hard to reach at best, was to soak a towel with hydrogen peroxide and wipe them down.

    How long should I give the Thuja and should it be 30C or 200CK? Or should I try Calcarea or Sebina?

  13. Candy Davis says:

    I have seborrheic keratosis on my chest and back (I am a female); my father has it too. I am 64 and have had them for 20+ years. Most do not itch – just a few on my back do. They are mostly single, but many in numbers with a few 20 cm large, and all are dark brown, rough and hard. I am thinking Thuja is the remedy needed, but I am not sure of the dosage. Could you please advise.
