Syringomas are harmless tumors in the sweat ducts which typically appear on the eyelids in clusters, but can also appear on the chest, neck, scalp and abdomen. They can be yellowish or skin colored, and grow 1-3 mm. in diameter. Many people confuse them with milia or xanthoma, but they’re not the same.
In general, syringomas go away on their own after a while. However, they don’t look pleasant, and many people decide to remove them with a process known as cauterization, which removes the tumors with electric current or a heated instrument. The surgery is pretty expensive, and there’s a big possibility that the benign growths will appear again, which is why the process is not so popular.
The process of cauterization brings other risks as well. Sun exposure after the removal of syringomas can lead to dark areas on the skin, while in some cases, there might be small holes on the skin left behind the benign tumors. Finally, although rare, the treated area may get infected, which will lead to bigger problems.
Luckily, surgical removal of syringomas isn’t the only solution. There are many remedies you can try at home which will remove the tumors without any side-effects, and all of them are cheap and made of natural ingredients. They may take a while to work, but the results will be far better than using commercial products or treatments.
Here are the best natural remedies against syringomas:
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is an acidic substance which can dissolve syringomas slowly. It also contains powerful antioxidants which can repair the damaged skin. Just soak a cotton swab in ACV and rub it on the bumps, then repeat the process a couple times a day for a few weeks.
Just like ACV, the acidity of lemons can eliminate syringomas effectively. Plus, lemons contain a lot of vitamin C which will ensure the process doesn’t leave ugly scars behind.
Aloe Vera gel
If you have an Aloe plant at home, you can easily extract the gel from within and apply it on your syringomas. The gel is rich in vitamin E which can also iron out wrinkles and improve the quality of your skin.
Castor oil is an ancient remedy against a variety of skin problems including syringomas. Some people claim that it’s even more effective when combined with baking soda – apply the paste on the affected area 2-3 times a day for quick results.
Blend a few onions and collect the juice, then clean your face and apply the juice on the affected area. Leave it to work for 20 minutes, then rinse with water to remove the smell. Repeat the process a few times a day for best results.
Garlic is one of the most powerful natural remedies for almost any kind of disease or condition including syringomas. Crush a garlic clove and leave it for 15 minutes, then stick small pieces of it on the affected area with a tape. Leave the garlic pieces to work overnight – this will allow rare enzymes in the vegetable to shrink the syringomas and eventually destroy them.
