A 44-year-old member asked:

what are some natural remedies to treat sebaceous hyperplasia?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Vicki Levine
Dermatology 41 years experience
None: There are very limited options in the treatment of sebaceous hyperplasia. Your dermatologist can lightly burn the top off, but they will probably come back. If you take high doses of Vitamin A, that might work. However, I would not recommend that, since there could be many side effects. Minor ones include dry skin, while a major one is headaches caused by swelling of the brain.

Are there any natural remedies for ABO incompatibility?

Dr. James Cummings answered
Neonatology 39 years experience
No: Abo incompatibility means that two individuals have blood types that are not compatible, and that one's blood has antibodies that can react with the other's blood, leading to destruction of blood cells. There is no remedy, natural or synthetic, to this condition. However, one's antibodies can be temporarily blocked from attacking the another's by giving large doses of gammaglobulin.

Are there any natural remedies to help with hie recovery?

Dr. James Cummings answered
Neonatology 39 years experience
No: Hie, or hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, is caused by lack of oxygen and blood flow to the brain. Restoring these nutrients prevents further damage, and allows the body to recover. However, the natural recovery process may further aggravate brain injury, and medical interventions such as hypothermia have been developed to reduce this secondary injury. I am not aware of natural remedies.

Are there any natural remedies for tmj?

Dr. Randy Baker
Holistic Medicine 40 years experience
Exercises, de-stress: Tmj is a complex problem requiring a comprehensive approach. Most with TMJ grind their teeth at nite, which is ofter related to stress, so stress reduction techniques including meditation, counseling, emotional freedom technique & magnesium may help. Dental work may be needed. But for many the most useful approach may be to consult a orofacial myologist for jaw exercises- see http://www.Iaom.Com/.

Are there any natural remedies for ed?

Dr. Danny Proffitt
Family Medicine 43 years experience
Natural?: The most natural remedy for most ED is a great attitude, a great relationship, mutual understanding, great romance, foreplay, locus of control, attention to sensate focus, treatment for underlying guilt, depression and great communication. There aren't many other effective "natural" treatments. Rise to the ocassion and elevate your sexual function.

Can you tell me natural remedies to treat sebaceous hyperplasia?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 44 years experience
Try retinoic acid: A retinoic acid derivative may help. You are free to consider this "natural" as it's basically vitamin A. Sebaceous hyperplasia really doesn't require treatment. I honor your interest in folk / "natural" remedies, but I hope that if you have something serious involving your skin -- such as a cancer -- you opt for something from the 21st century that will actually work.
