Dear Elba, you are such a great mother to pursue finding out what can be done about your son's skin!
Please let me know how things turn out!
I have been putting Iodine on my larger lesions and that seems to help, a little. I have been taking Lugol'sIodine internally, along with E, selenium, magnesium, large doses of vitamin C, and minerals. I also take MSM, sometimes milk thistle.
Miraculously, my back is clearing up! I was told they were permanent marks, with no cure. Don't listen to the docs if they say there is no cure, my back healed and I don't know why...
It was suggested by Wombat of the Iodine forum that possibly the C has been a big factor since it helps to rebuild and form collagen. So I upped the C and haven't looked back!
I have also been laying out in the sun, a big no-no for anetoderma,(makes it appear worse) but God's light has helped the healing.
I wish the best for your son, I hope he is not too worried or stressed.
P.S. I don't live in NYC, but I do love the Big Apple! (currently residing on the West Coast)
