Going to try TCA known as Trichloroacetic to remove syringoma

Posted by My Syringoma Story on Monday, February 25, 2019 Under: TCA
I'm trying something new! In the past, I would often use Wart & Mole Vanish to remove my syringomas.<

Next month (March 2019), I want to try something different that is not as expensive. You've probably heard of it; it's called TCA (Trichloroacetic acid). The dermatology industry uses it often for face peels and removing moles and skin tags. I haven't found an article that it will remove syringomas as well but I think that since skin tags are also bumpy and annoying like syringomas, I figure I would give it a try. Now, I haven't done the experiment yet but if it works, it'll cost me less than $20 for a bottle of TCA versus over $70 for the Wart Mole Vanish product to remove these pests. I've already gotten the TCA 40% at home. From researching online, you should never go over 50% proof for your skin!!! So beware and make sure you order right. This chemical is powerful and will burn you. 

Right now, I am prepping my face for it. So before I use TCA, I will not use any exfoliator or any special creams in my regiment for the next 2 weeks or so; only soap and water. I've also ordered antibiotic ointment and alcohol prep pads to prepare for this (these are items I'm using to avoid infection from using TCA and to help my skin heal properly). I'm going to use gloves that I already have at home. Waiting to get in my mail is also a face neutralizer spray I've ordered online. I will disclose all the exact products I've ordered on here once they've arrived! I'm nervous about all of this because I don't know how intense it'll be and if I'll be able to handle it. I'm praying it won't end up damaging my skin. I read somewhere that I should only apply 3 - 4 minutes on the spot I need to get removed. I'm thinking, I will not go over 3 minutes. Then you'll need to rinse it off, use neutralizer spray if you want to and apply antibacterial (antibiotic) ointment right after that. No direct sun for 2 weeks as the peel is working or else you'll damage your face! Use SPF 25 if you end up going outside. 

I am telling you, TCA is serious stuff. I'm nervous and I haven't even pop open the top. Wish me luck. Let's hope that I do it right and not damage my skin! I am planning on removing 5 syringomas on the left side of my face and 1 big syringoma on the right cheek. The left side are mainly under my eye. More updates to come!

About Me

I am a woman in my 30s who have had syringomas since I was in my early 20s. I usually use a cream to remove the biggest syringomas every year at home, by myself because they affect my self-esteem. It hurts when I do this. I know that they will always grow more and more on my face but I want to keep them under control so that I don't eventually get 100 syringoma bumps around my eyes at one time. It'll be a constant struggle and I've come to terms with what I have to do.
As always, research and buy with caution. There will always be new products out there and they can be really dangerous for your skin. I can't always get back to the comments on YouTube immediately with school and kids pulling my strings left and right but I appreciate all of your encouragement. Thank you readers and viewers for sticking with me and giving advice to me and others who have been going through the same skincare problems for so many years. Stay safe, everybody.
