My husband has had a number of solar keratoses removed over the years.. typically by liquid nitrogen. One at his collar level has left an ugly white scar.. I had been researching magnesium chloride for mine and others' benefit, and decided to give a really inflamed lesion on his forehead a go. It had been red, with a thick ugly crust for months, and he claimed that removing the whitish "scab" (which I wanted to do!) was incredibly painful. I applied it at night, spraying his forehead and immediately rubbing it in. I could not believe it.. next morning it had 80% gone! 48 hours later there is absolutely no sign he ever had a lesion. I am absolutely overawed by this.. this thing has been there, in various stages of inflammation, for years! We have since sprayed it once daily on his scalp, and the 1/2 dozen or so "lesser" lesions are no longer inflamed. They have a slightly scaly appearance and I believe they are going to be completely gone in the next couple of days. He's chuffed to bits as his last bill was $300.00 inspection and nitrogen treatment. I would like to add that I bought the magnesium chloride (mag oil) as Nigari... 5lbs of flakes for a mere $8.69 from an importer of Japanese foods.. MgCl2 is extracted from Sea Salt.. is 99.8% pre MgCl2.. and is added to soy beans to make tofu. Forget about 6.5lbs at $55.00 guys!! I added around 8 oz Nigari to boiling water, making it up to a quart. Awesome stuff!!

Some people report good results when the magnesium oil is applied directly to the keratosis, others find that the MO is too strong and actually inflames it. You have to test this for yourself. However, I strongly recommend using magnesium oil whereever you can on your skin to build up your magnesium level. Having sufficient magnesium (and also zinc) helps heal the keratosis.
