I was excited when I found this page, as finally I was reading an answer to my problems of ugly Cherry Angiomas, and how to get rid of them - WITHOUT $DERMATOLOGIST$!
Thankyou lulul for sharing your secret!
I'm 45 years old, and while I don't have any raised, growth-like Cherry Angiomas (mine are all small, the size of the head of a pin, or even the point, and there also very flat) I am unfortunate in that I have many.
I started getting them about 5-10 years ago, and I have many now. There all so tiny, but also very bright red,
and certainly stand out. I HATE THEM!
So anyway lulul (or anyone else that cares to answer my questions) I tired your method on just a couple of mine to see just how it worked.
I noticed that the pin I was using would cool off too quickly to make a difference, and so I started to hold the pin
over the lighter for a longer time, but when I did this - the pin got black! I had to wipe the pinhead off, because obviously I didn't want that black junk going into the wound it was about to create. However, by the time I had wiped the pinhead off with a piece of toilet paper to get rid of the black charcoal like stuff - the pin had already
cooled down! So then I decided to hold it even longer over the lighter - to make it red hot, but hen the pin was so hot - it began to bend, and slowly fall apart!
Now, I was using a regular small sewing pin with a tiny flat head, and having all that trouble - what's the best
way to do this? You mentioned a pin with a ball on the end, but not a plastic ball (obviously) , but I've never before even seen a pinhead that was a ball that wasn't plastic! So I don't even know where to find one.
I mean my Mother's a serious sewer, and I've never seen a pin like that - I never even knew they made those that weren't plastic.
Really I need something bigger/thicker than can be used to be heated up, but wont cool down as quickly when I wipe the charcoal like substance off of it.
I think someone recommended a small nail, but I'm wondering if that will be too big?
Someone also suggested heating the pin/needle/nail on a hotplate, or stove, etc; When you do it that way -
does it still get black?
So anyway, I did two CA's on my shoulder, and it's hard to tell right away if it did work, as the pin kept cooling
off really quickly on me (because I was wiping it off before I pressed it on the CA's), and so I had to do each one
several times each. When I was finally done, they both looked really black, and so I will have to wait for probably a week now, to see if these things will heal, and go away completely...
Just wanted some extra advice, and also wanted to post my experience with this...
Cheers ; )-
