Sun spots. (solar keratoses)

Having a sore on my leg for some 5 years, which would itch so much i would have to scratch it making it bleed, after two years I made first trip to Doctor “A.” who took a Biopsy it came back benign and then the doctor burnt it off with Liquid Nitrogen & was told that it would not come back, but it came back within a week later.

Went to Doctor “B”¬† different practice who gave me a tube of steroid cream which stopped it itching but would not heal, after three or four visits & the same amount of tubes I lost my faith in the medical profession & suffered it for another two years plus.

My wife reading an article in a local Newspaper about Dr Chris Reynolds & Wheatgrass, she talked me into going to see him, who gave me three sachets of wheatgrass extract, after the second day the itching had completely gone & before i had used the first sachet  the actual sore had gone leaving a slight red scar tissue that is below skin surface, we are amazed at the healing affect of wheatgrass & are still using it daily, also wheatgrass shots my wife & I take daily.

Comment:

In sunny Queensland where I live, sunspots or solar keratoses are extremely common. I have seen many patients with both arms, head and face literally covered with hundreds of them. The standard medical approach is to freeze these lesions off with liquid nitrogen. This may work, but scarring and thinning of the skin over a period of time renders it vulnerable to injury and infection.

My approach is somewhat different (I haven’t used liquid nitrogen for many years), and that is for the patient to apply wheatgrass extract once daily, and to persevere with the treatment. In my experience, the most usual outcome is for the lesions to disappear within a month or so as described in this case. Continued daily preventative use of wheatgrass also helps the damaged skin recover and regain its integrity while preventing development of new lesions.
