Peeling away our blemishes

I am so excited to share results from our trial of WartPEEL. If you missed the post explaining what the product is just scroll down to the last one and read up. It really is worth educating yourself about and considering a try.

Being that this was our first trial I was indecisive on how many nights to apply it and the exact quantity so we fumbled through this a bit. In the end we applied the WartPEEL to Mermaids wrist for 3 nights.

In all honesty I was shocked after the first application and thought I had done something wrong until I read more about how it works and realized it was ok that it appeared “worse” than better.

So here is what we were working with before using the WartPEEL. Now remember, I chose the spot on her wrist because she verbalizes that it is bothersome to her. It’s difficult to tell in the picture, I should have gotten a better angle, but the crease on her wrist houses a raises patch of Nevus that causes her much angst.

Mermaid’s nevus is beginning to spread up her arm and hand but thus far is flat. This area on the wrist is much thicker than the picture gives credit. Its rough, bumpy, scaley and bothersome on many levels.

Now to see how it did…

Below are days 2 , 3 and 4 the morning after application.

The medication requires that you allow 15-20 minutes to dry prior to placing tape over it for the night. However, it also states to wash your hands immediatley if you come in contact with it and I was given direction via phone to ensure my Toddler did NOT touch the product. That being said attempting to get a 2.5 year old to stay still and allow the medication to dry without touching it is slim to none. I covered it immediately after application leading to some of the medications spreading off the direct target and causing mild irritation.

We used one of our generous gifts from Wild Carrot HERBALS called triple Tumeric Salve to help eliminate the redness and swelling in the few days following. Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It offers incredible anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. It is also known for making skin tags, moles, and unwanted skin growths to fall off or disappear.

Embrace the color, it will be with you for a while but learned it truly IS an amazing product!

In the end, nearly 2 weeks after we started this adventure we are both THANKFUL and HAPPY to show you that Mermaid’s Nevus is no longer present on her wrist.

In comparison from day 1 to now…

Allow me to answer any questions I feel might arise… Yes, the redness will continue to subside. No, it will not scar. We will not be using the medication again until it returns and creates problems.

What the pictures cannot show you, is that Mermaid’s wrist is now smooth. No more callus like lesions.

Mermaid will even tell you herself, her owie is all better. I am thrilled with the results and so humbled that this was brought to our attention.

Remember I told you a friend, and fellow Nevus Mommy came to me privately with her own experiences. One major struggle for their families  little is that she has a patch of nevus that grows so thick on her heel and foot it is painful and at times impossible to wear shoes.

Here are a few collages of their WartPEEL results. Knee, foot, ankle.

AMAZING!!!

It so important to remember while gazing through these pictures and trials that this is not just about cosmetic changes. Removing raised painful patches of nevus means comfort. Im sure you can imagine how painful it can be for everyone, both physically and emotionally, those mornings our little ones cried because their shoes hurt or the coat sleeve was too tight and rubbed. One small adjustment in their quality of life is worth every moment we dedicate time to a regimen.

This weeks score… Nevus 0… Mommy’s 2!

Thanks for walking with us today,

Mermaid’s Mommy
