Alternative Treatments For Sebaceous Hyperplasia
I have not seen: Any response to copper peptides for the treatment of seb hyp
Yes indeed: Good luck. Your dermatology soecialust is your best guide
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.
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.
Destruction: Treatments are mostly mechanical. Lesions tend to recur unless the entire unit is destroyed or excised. Risk of permanent scarring must be considered when treating benign lesions. Treatment options include: photodynamic therapy (pdt), cryotherapy, cauterization or electrodesiccation, topical chemical treatments. Risk of atrophic scarring or transient dyspigmentation are potential complications.

Treatment options: Sebaceous hyperplasia are a common, benign lesion on the face that do not go away on there own. The treatment options include specific lasers and needle epilation.
Excision: Unfortunately, there are no medications that will decrease sebaceous gland hyperplasia. Usually on the nose, forehead or scalp as the most common locations, if they are "unsightly" then, excision is curative.
Had spot on labia minora asked for biopsy scared it was vin from hpv biopsy says sebaceous hyperplasia benign does that rule out vin?
No VIN: Benign Sebaceous Hyperplasia is not VIN. Its just a little thickening of the sebaceous glands. Its not cancerous or pre-cancerous. You can read a lot more here: http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/1059368-overview Best wishes!
How to treat sebaceous hyperplasia on forehead? And a tiny milia dot under eye? Just looks bad. Will see dermatologist.
Since you are: Going to see a dermatologist - I think it would be best to rely on that doctor's evaluation and treatment plan. You are asking us how to treat this on the general health education site of Health Tap. I think you may be putting the cart before the horse here.
None: None that I know of.Get a more detailed answer ›
Possibly: AD is an incurable degenerative disease of the brain. There have been some studies using medium chain triglycerides to 'feed' the brain (Axona). Recently a study supported the use of hi dose Vit E. Other supplements include Vinpocetine and phosphatidyl serine. Be careful even with supplements and 'natural' products- they maybe unsafe or have interactions with other products or medications.
None really: Nothing other than surgery has proven to be effective for cataracts. Surgery is so highly successfuly that there is nothing to be worried about. Alternative supplements, maneuvers and medications are of no benefit.
