Investigation: Natural topcial cure for cherry angiomas?

Posted by Anonymous on August 31, 2006

In 2005 I blogged about cherry angiomas. A year later, I have one on my forehead. Laser treatment works well, but hurts, is expensive and increases the odds of skin cancer in the treated area. So I’m going to test some other things.

Miracle Cure Duo supposedly works over the course of two months. They have some nice before, during and after photos. The igredients are essentially the same as Swedish bitters. Instead of spending $37.81 on Miracle Cure Duo, you could perhaps spend $13.50 on the raw ingredients for Swedish bitters (minus the vodka), and make your own. Or cheaper yet, get some Swedish bitters cream for $11.50.

Can any of these clear up cherry angiomas? I doubt it. I can’t find a single testimonial for or against other than on the web site selling the Miracle Cure. For $12, I’ll try it. Ordered! Ordering with PayPal was super easy.

    What about liquid nitrogen?

    Leaves a permanent white scar.

    That’s fairly tragic.
    Regarding topcial – You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means…. (with all due respect to Inigo)
    Actually, I’m somewhat certain it doesn’t exist at all. I may be wrong, but I doubt it.

    Follow up: I tried liquid nitrogen administered by a doctor and two forms of self surgery. The first, I tied off the cherry angioma using some dental floss. My doctor had heard of this for skin tags, but never for a cherry angioma. In a couple days, the ones I tied off died and fell off. The scar was almost non existent. By contrast, the liquid nitrogen treated ones were still there. Both processes were somewhat painful. For the other, I purchased some very very sharp tweezers. I basically flame sterilized them then pulled the little red suckers right off. The bleeding was very bad from this, so I considered using superglue to stop the bleeding.

    Eventually, I decided that I didn’t care if I had them or not, so I stopped trying to get rid of them.

    Thanks for following up on this. I just finally found out the name for these things and very happy to read about the methods you’ve tried. Mine are itchy when they’re new, but apart from that they don’t bother me. Mind you, I seem to be getting more and more. will try your dental floss trick on one near my foot. Cheers!

    I have them but never had one removed before. I went to a doctor that told me they are hereditary and are caused by a chemical build up in the spleen. What from you ask? Believe it or not, but from a simple head of lettuce. The chemical created during the photocynthasis process in growing. The doctor said to stop eating lettuce and no more will appear, however, the ones you have are going to stay unless you have them removed. The doctor advised me to only eat romain, cabbage or spinach as a substitute. Funny, I had a habit of taking a head of lettuce and cutting it into big chunks and dipped it in salad dressing to eat. I never told the doctor this. Well, that was years ago and I have followed the doctors advice and no more additional ones have appeared, I only have the ones before I saw the doctor. Hope this helps others as it has helped me.

      I see… What chemical would that be? Romain is lettuce, btw.

      “Romaine or cos lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) is a variety of lettuce which grows in a tall head of sturdy leaves with a firm rib down the center. Unlike most lettuces, it is tolerant of heat.” – wiki
