What are some natural remedies to treat sebaceous hyperplasia?

What are some natural remedies to treat sebaceous hyperplasia?

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.

Can you tell me natural remedies to treat sebaceous hyperplasia?

Can you tell me natural remedies to treat sebaceous hyperplasia?

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.
