A Home Remedy for Seborrheic Keratosis That Works A Treat!


What is a good natural remedy to remove the beginnings of a seborrheic keratosis (age spot) on the temple area of the forehead? I'm 65 and just beginning to get these (one is about the diameter of a pencil eraser).


Hello, and thank you for your question regarding a natural way to get rid of age spots.

Firstly, to successfully get rid of a seborrheic keratosis (and prevent more from occurring), you need a combination of internal and external remedies.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is definitely the number one choice. It not only works as an external remover, it's also a very powerful internal cleanser.

To use as an external remover simply use a cotton swab dipped in apple cider vinegar and dab it on the spot for a couple of minutes. Do this 3 times a day and you will find that in around 8 weeks the age spot will be gone.

For internal use, mix 30 ml's in a glass of warm filtered water (add a small amount of natural honey for taste if you need to). Drink this concoction 2-3 times daily, 10 minutes before food.

When it comes to purchasing ACV, only ever buy the organic apple cider vinegar which still contains the "mother" apple (it will tell you on the bottle). Do not buy processed ACV as this won't work as well. If you struggle with the taste of the ACV, you can now purchase apple cider vinegar capsules, which are much easier to take.

It's also interesting to note that one of the main causes of seborrheic keratosis is yeast infections and pathogen overload. It's therefore a good idea to give yourself a yeast fungus and parasite cleanse (you'll also feel much better afterwards and have loads more energy). Have a read of our article on natural ways to rid yourself of yeast infections and be sure to follow the recommendations... Natural Remedies for Yeast Infections.

In addition, age spots and liver spots can also be a sign of rancid fat accumulating in the body. Consuming coconut oil (2-3 tablespoons a day) and taking a good quality fish oil supplement is a terrific way to get rid of, and prevent, toxic rancid fat from accumulating in the body.

So I hope these tips help you out.

Good luck with it and all the best to you!

It Works!
by: Tony

This must be some kind of treatment record, but I followed your advice and my seborrheic keratosis is gone! I actually used Bragg's apple cider vinegar for about 20 minutes, three times a day. Anyway, thanks!

Try a band aid!
by: Anonymous

I covered mine up with a bandaid - just the sticky part, not the pad - in the mornings and took it off at bed. No apple cider vinegar or anything, just the bandaid. I noticed it was smooth in just a couple of days. It was gone in about 4 - 6 weeks and hasn't come back. That was a couple of years ago. Give it a try!

I've never heard of seborrheic keratosis being called age spots? My dermatologist told me they are inherited, which I thought was strange. I have also heard of people having great results using Tea Tree oil on these. I have so many of them... all around my bra area, behind my ears and two on my face. I hate them. Also, the dermatologist gave me a script for a very expensive cream which did absolutely nothing! This is really just putting in my two cents. I just bought the Tea Tree oil today so I'm going to try it and hope I get good results.

Dermatologists usually refer to seborrheic keratoses as "seborrheic warts", however, they are also usually "generalized" as being age spots or liver spots. As far as seborrheic keratose being an inherited disorder? Load of rubbish! Not sure how your dermatologist came up with that one?

Anyway, hope the tea tree oil works. If not, go with the apple cider vinegar instead. ACV works like magic on seborrheic keratoses.

All the best!

Seborrheic Keratosis and Warts
by: Anonymous

I have very tiny warts the size of a pin scattered on my neck, abdominal area and face. Recently I started to get them on my hands. Will aloe vera gel work for these? The ACV smells and stings and I can't keep it on for long. I tried aloe vera for 2 weeks. Applied it on the body and let it dry (left it on for the whole night and washed off in the morning) but no results have shown yet?

Not sure if aloe vera works for warts or seborrheic keratosis? Apple cider vinegar is still the best natural treatment for both of these problems. Try diluting the ACV at a 50/50 ratio (half water - half ACV) and see how that goes. You can also have a read through this article and try some of the remedies listed... Natural Wart Remedies - Earth Clinic.

Hope this helps. :)

ACV for liver age spots?
by: Lucy

Hi Troy:
Can ACV help reduce liver age spots on the face? I thought they were caused by the sun, rather than rancid fats (yuk). Does it need to be taken internally and also dabbed externally?

Hi Lucy. The theory that age spots or liver spots are caused by excess sun exposure is false. If this were true then people who avoid the sun should not get age spots/liver spots, yet they still do. Rancid fat accumulation (and therefore liver spots) is primarily the result of a poor functioning liver. The ACV is excellent for cleansing the liver and thus reversing age spots. Yes you take it internally, along with using it externally for best results. Lemon juice or organic castor oil applied externally are also very good for reversing age spots due to their high antioxidant levels. In addition to these (and the coconut oil and fish oil), the trace mineral selenium is also crucial for preventing and treating liver spots...

"Selenium is the most efficient antioxidant (anti-peroxidant) and is found at the subcellular level in the glutathione peroxidase enzyme system and metallo amino acids (selenomethionine, etc.). Selenium prevents cellular and subcellular lipids and fats from being peroxidized which literally means it prevents body fats from going rancid (seen externally as "age spots" or "liver spots" - this brown gold peroxidized lipid is known as ceroid lipofucsin)." DC Nutrition

So try and get some selenium into you as well (brewers yeast is an excellent source).

Hope this helps you Lucy.

All the best!
