Fibromas are small skin growths that are actually benign tumors of the connective tissue. They look like small soft nodules on the skin, and vary in size from a few millimeters to a centimeter or so. Fibromas don’t usually have a distinctive color, but can be brightly pigmented. They are not malignant, but throughout life they grow and become more noticeable, therefore represent an aesthetic problem.
Fibromas usually appear during middle age. They usually grow on the neck, face, armpits, stomach, eyelids, groin, breasts, but can also occur elsewhere on the skin. In fact, almost everyone has at least one on the skin, so this issue is not rare.
Almost everyone has them, but hardly anyone talks about them — fibromas. Fibromas — also known as pedunculated warts — are benign, little tumors on your skin and are just as common among men as they are among women. They are described as skin tags or tiny little flaps of skin that hang from your skin.
These fibromas or skin tags can form around your neck, in your armpits, behind your legs, your groin area or on your eyelids. They mostly develop where there is friction from skin rubbing or in creases. Fibromas can often begin to emerge as early as puberty. The cause of their development is not yet known. However, scientists suspect that a weakened immune system is to blame. Medical proof is, however, still non-existent.
Many go to the doctor to have them removed surgically, while others give expensive lotions or oinments a try. While alcohol or peroxide have both proved to be quite effective there is in fact one solution that is much easier to come across as almost everyone has it at home. Apple cider vinegar! The vinegar dries out the fibromas, making them turn dark and eventually causes them to fall off.
Here is how you can apply the vinegar:
Pour some apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and rub it into the fibroma plaguing you. Do this two to three times a day. After daily application, the fibroma’s color will start to change. It will become darker and almost black since it is drying out. Eventually, it will fall off completely. But careful! This method can only be used on fibromas found on your skin. Fibromas in your mouth or eyes require a visit to the doctor: as quickly as possible.

Note: Apple cider vinegar should never be used for removing fibromas on the eyelids!
Carefully wash the place around the fibromas with water and soap. Dry. Soak a cotton swab in the apple cider vinegar and drain the excess. Place it directly on the fibromas and fixate it with a plaster or bandage. Leave it for 15 minutes, then wash with lukewarm water. Repeat the procedure three times a day, for seven days. Fibromas should first get darkened and then start to dry out and eventually fall off.
