Fibromas are benign growths on the skin, which by definition are benign connective tissue tumors. On the skin they look like tiny soft nodes, papules above the skin level – a few inches up to a centimeter in diameter. They are usually skin colored, but they can also be light pigmented. Changes are not unusual, but they can become bigger and new ones may appear, which is why they are seen as an aesthetic problem.

They most commonly occur in middle age and in places where the skin ages and are most commonly found on the neck, armpits, groin, under the breasts, abdomen, lids, but they can also occur elsewhere on the skin. In fact, almost every human has at least one fibroma on the skin so this phenomenon is not uncommon.

Their number and size increase with age. The cause of their origin is unknown, but their inheritance and thickness are essential factors in their development. Their number ranges from a few to a few hundred. The diagnosis of fibroma is done with medical examination, and the method of treatment will be decided by a dermatologist.

Most commonly fibromas are removed in the colder periods of the year when the sun is less pronounced, in order to minimize sweating. Dermatologists usually remove fibromas by using electrocoagulation, radiosurgery, laser. Only one treatment is required, unless there is a greater number of fibroids or larger surfaces, in which case the treatment should be repeated.

After removing the fibroma the scar is treated with local antibiotic for five days with the usual hygiene and showering. After the procedure, it is necessary to avoid intense sweating from having stronger physical efforts in order to make the healing successful and without complications.

How to use apple cider vinegar to remove fibromas?

It is considered that apple cider vinegar is among the most efficient home remedies. It can be used to treat various health issues, and the removal of fibromas is among them, thanks to its acidity.

But keep this in mind – never use apple vinegar to remove the fibromas around your eyelids, because this can irritate your eyes. This method works for most people. Here’s how to do it…

Method of removal of fibroma with apple cider vinegar:

Carefully wash the area around the fibromas using water and a mild soap. For the first time, you can irrigate the fibroma with water for 15 minutes (or you can hold it with a pad soaked in water). Then, dry it.

Soak a piece of cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and then squeeze out the excessive fluids. Put the cotton ball directly on the fibroma and secure it using a patch or bandage to make sure it will remain in place. Leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse with water. Repeat the procedure 3 times a day, several days to a week or more, if necessary.

The fibromas should first darken, then a crust will appear, then it will dry up and eventually all will fall off. Depending on the size of the fibroma, i.e. how deeply it is in the skin, there will be some damage (scar) that can be lubricated wit aloe vera gel.

If the fibroma is not deep in the skin, there may be no scar at all – if all this is done carefully.


1. Be careful not to let the apple cider vinegar leak around the skin because it may become irritated.
2. Don’t put more apple cider vinegar once the fibroma dries.
3. Don’t tear the fibroma. Wait for it to fall by itself!
