Seborrheic Keratosis is an infection that brings about noncancerous skin growths or infections and is common in older or middle aged adults. The infection usually appears in form of growths which range from brown to black and they grow on the neck, chest, back, head, shoulders, and the facial region of the affected patient. The growths can resemble warts though they have no viral origin. They feel flat or slightly elevated and can range from very small to even larger than 2.5 centimeters. The seborrheic keratosis is normally painless and may require no treatment but you may consider having them removed due to various reasons like cosmetic reasons or your own body beauty, if they become irritated, and if they bleed because of being rubbed against by the clothing. The treatment methods for seborrheic keratosis may either be natural home remedies or done in the hospital, by a professional.

Apple cider vinegar is made from apple or cider and has a pale to medium amber colour. It is made by crushing apples and squeezing out the juice, bacteria and yeast is also added to the liquid to start the alcoholic fermentation process and the sugars in the mixture are turned into alcohol. In a second fermentation process the alcohol is converted to vinegar by acetic acid forming bacteria (acetobactor). Malic acid and acetic acid give the vinegar the sour taste.
