Make sure to talk with your doctor if you have any new skin growths! If you have already been diagnosed, here is some information to help you with your removal process.
"Syringomas are small benign tumors. They are usually found on your upper cheeks and lower eyelids. Though rare, they may also occur on your chest, abdomen, or genitals. These harmless growths result when the cells from your sweat glands are overactive. They usually begin to develop in young adulthood but can occur at any age".(1)
They are quite small at around 1-3 mm. They can match your skin tone or can be on the yellow spectrum. They are not harmful, but most people want them removed to feel better about themselves.
There are a few popular ways to treat these:
- TCA peel. A small drop on the tumor can help it to dry up and fall off. We suggest the 30% for this if you have very white skin. If you are ethnic toned please use the 20% or even the 13% and pretreat with Fade Bright to help prevent unintended coloring of the skin. Use a cotton tipped pick, or a small Q-tip with most of the cotton removed to get a precise application.
