I thought this was interesting: I haven't personally had much experience with SSKI topically unless it is to put on a blemish on my face...it trumps Lugol's for sure when I don't want that orange Iodine stain to show! Apparently SSKI works very nicely for dimimishing the keloid scars if it is applied twice daily for as many months as it takes, possibly a year or more, but it would be easy to just make a habit of applying it where needed as part of the daily routine. I hope this info helps somebody!
I might try SSKI on my shoulder scar, I guess it is a keloid, or a better description of it would be: uuuugly.
Q: I have for years been getting treatments about every five months for keloids on my chest. The treatments involve needles and are very uncomfortable-and my condition hasnít really gotten any better. Iím wondering if there are any other treatment options that can eliminate my keloids or at least get me away from the needles.
Dr. Wright: For those readers who may not be familiar with them, keloids are a type of scar. Unlike ďnormalĒ scars, the tissue of keloids piles up, elevating the scar above the surface of the skin, sometimes as much as half an inch.
As youíve discovered, thereís no patent medicine that effectively prevents or treats keloids. Trying to remove a keloid surgically is rarely effective and usually results in another one just as bad as before-if not worse.
Fortunately, natural medicine offers a safe and permanent treatment for keloids: potassium Iodide (SSKI). SSKI must be rubbed into the keloid at least twice daily (more applications offer even better results) for several months to more than a year, depending on the severity of the keloid. Be patient, because progress often isnít obvious for two to three months.
Despite the somewhat lengthy treatment period, persistence pays off. Eventually, SSKI will diminish a keloid scar until itís just an ďordinaryĒ scar, flat to the skin surface again. At that point, the SSKI applications can be discontinued and the keloid wonít re-establish itself.
SSKI is been available over-the-counter in a few locations. If you canít find it in a natural food store near you, contact the Tahoma Clinic Dispensary (with which I am affiliated) at (888)893-6878 or http://www.tahoma-clinic.com.
Using SSKI topically is very safe unless you have an Iodine allergy. But if thereís any doubt at all, itís best to work with a physician-member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (800-532-3688 or http://www.acam.org)
or the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (1-703-610-9037 or http://www.naturopathic.org).

I had some kind of almost-skin tag type of bump on my neck since childhood.
The other day I happened to notice it felt almost crumbly. WOW!
So I started putting Iodine on it and it looked like a hickey for awhile (I don't absorb it overnight anymore)..way way sooner than I thought, the skin smoothed out. I haven't gotten out a magnifying mirror to examine the area, but I cannot feel a bump or where to put the topical Iodine anymore!
I guess being more iodinated and 8 or more drops of the SSKI everyday did the trick!
Funny how sometimes we have a goal to achieve, but maybe little other problems we weren't even considering...heal!
I can honestly say that Potassium Iodine is just amazing when it come to curing keloid scars. I spent years in shame..hiding my shoulders because of the 4 unattractive keloid scars I had developed from shoulder surgeries. I tried desperately everything I could (medically- except surgery)to get rid of them. Silicone gels and patches would only do so much and once I'd stop using them, the keloid would just get larger and itch even more! Finally, I stumbled onto various sites online that described the amazing healing powers of Iodide/Iodine.
It is been exactly 1 week of using Potassium Iodine on my scars- twice a day, as well as taken two drops of Lugol'sIodide in a cup of juice or water and I can literally see the keloids melting away..just amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
$18 dollars..that is how much I've spent to get this kind of results so far and I've only used 1/3 of the bottles. I highly recommend this treatment to anyone looking to finally do away with these scars. It is a shame that in today's day and age, those who are supposed to help us heal and keep us healthy conceal from us the simplest of cures all in the name of making a dollar- without regards for the well being of their patients! I spent hundreds of dollars and barely got any results- yet $18.00 was all it took to get me on the path of true recovery and self confidence once again!!
Do yourself a favor, look up "Iodide" and educate yourself on this miracle mineral that has so many healing capabilities. Everything form keloid scars to allergies; infections to cancer; heartburn to anxiety! Learn how Iodide helps the scar tissue regenerate, thus healing the scar itself and doing away with the infection that caused the keloid in the first place! Once it heals..IT NEVER COMES BACK!!
