Finally Liberated From The Pain of Living with AKN for 20+ Years

Having had AKN since 1998, this man’s AKN had started slowly, with only a few little bumps here and there.

One thing led to another, and next thing you know, he went for another haircut, and another, and “before I knew it, I was 15 years, 20 years into it.”

AKN, for this man, was “something that has bothered my life. It has been quite painful and embarrassing.”

More than 19 Different Dermatologists, Countless Prescribed Medicines, With No Results

Since 1998, “I’ve seen 19+ dermatologists, some of the top-rated dermatologists in the country, and none of them had been able to fix this.”

“I even had an incident where someone prescribed me medicine that almost paralyzed my legs. It has been quite a painful journey. For example, sleeping in hotel rooms has been difficult as I bleed blood on pillowcases. At home, I have to use a different and specific pillow tailored for this (AKN).”

From 1998 – 2021: One Man’s Determined Journey to Find a Solution

“Since 1998, I have been searching for a fix – to be able to live my own life. I first discovered Dr. Umar in 2016, but I thought he was too far and too expensive I regretted doing that because I ended up taking more medications that did not work. But this past December, I decided to suck it up and visit Dr. Umar.”

The Dr. U AKA The Bumpinator: Difference in AKN Removal Results as Clear as Night & Day

“Just the difference between my first and second (AKN) treatment has been as clear as night and day.”

The Bumpinator AKA Dr. U Can Also Help With Natural Hair Growth

In the case of some AKN patients, the accumulative scar tissue, bumps, and other growth around the affected AKN area can result in bald spots or hair loss due to the ingrown hairs returning to the skin instead of protruding out of it. Yet Dr. U cannot only help remove the AKN bumps but also help the patient grow or regrow hair in these bald spots using natural means.

As shown in the video results above, besides this AKN patient’s successful removal of the scar tissue surrounding his AKN, he also reports hair growth in previous bald spots, which has been a result of natural medicines and topical lotions that Dr. U had recommended him – natural hair lotion, hair pomade and hair supplement “GASHEE,” formulated by Dr. Umar himself that you can find here.

As stated by the patient remarks, “I have bumps that were painful and bleeding that now almost do not even exist anymore – they are almost completely flat.”

But more so, “Hair [is now] coming out from bald spots that have been bald for the past 15-16 years.”

Not only has his AKN bumps been successfully removed and healed by Dr. U AKA The Bumpinator, but by using recommended natural hair health products Dr.UGro GASHEE, this patient was able to grow hair using natural means in areas of the scalp that are now freed from AKN keloids and growth.

Life After Small Bumps AKN Removal: Living Free From Pain, Fear & More

“Surprisingly, people don’t think things like this [AKN Keloid Bumps] impact life, but I have a 5-year-old who consistently, for 2 years, asked me, “Daddy, what’s wrong with your hair?”

As you can imagine, “It is a painful thing to have to explain.”

“I’ve learned to live with it, but I’m looking forward to the date where I can answer that question differently. I’m looking forward to the date that I don’t even have to worry about in my head. I don’t even worry now because literally, I slept in a hotel room yesterday, and I woke up, and there was zero nothing on the pillow!’

“That’s literally the first time since 1998 where I can sleep on a pillow and not worry about it.”

“I’m looking forward to being able to go to the public and not be afraid of it or be worried that people around me would be looking at my head like, “what’s wrong with this guy. I’m looking forward to normalization, just being normal with my son. I’m looking forward to walking down the street and people not acting like I’m some weird person. I’m looking forward to people feeling comfortable around me.”

After the treatment, this man came home and states how “My son was quite amazed and excited to see the difference after my treatment.”

“My daughter said, “Daddy, this is amazing.”

FAQ – Commonly Asked Questions About Removing A Large-Sized AKN Bump

Is AKN Acne?

Although AKN is an abbreviation for “Acne Keloidalis Nuchae,” AKN is not 100% related to acne.

AKN does not occur “as a result of acne vulgaris, but rather a folliculitis” due to an ingrown hair inflaming the hair follicle.

Rather than oils, dirt, or other substances blocking the pores, which happens with regular acne, AKN typically occurs due to an ingrown hair blockage of the hair follicle.

Thus, the ensuing painful and uncomfortable bumps, and scarring which generally accompany AKN, often happen due to the body’s autoimmune or natural responses to these ingrown hairs and the area surrounding these ingrown hair follicles.

Should I see a Dermatologist or Doctor for my AKN?

In one way, AKN is progressive and, for the most part, will continue to grow over time, increasing in size and complexity. Over time, your AKN can worsen and complicate to the point where treating it will be much more challenging.

Due to these factors, it is highly recommended that if you suspect you have AKN, you see a doctor or dermatologist with enough experience in successfully diagnosing and treating AKN.

Yet, it is essential to note that due to AKN being a relatively newly discovered condition in the medical world, there are not too many doctors or dermatologists who can successfully treat AKN.

If you suspect that you have AKN, it is best to see Dr. Sanusi Umar, AKA The Bumpinator, immediately, using the “Free Consultation” button below to schedule a free consultation and get your AKN looked at immediately so we can help resolve this issue immediately before it gets out of hand.

Does AKN Get Worse Over Time?

Yes, AKN can develop into worse and worse conditions over time, especially if left unchecked or untreated. Due to this, AKN can become more painful and more irritating, as well as harder to treat if left untreated and unchecked.

Suppose you think you may have AKN or Acne Keloidalis Nuchae. In that case, it is best to first consult with a licensed and qualified medical professional such as Dr. Umar to understand the core nature of your condition and to help plan an effective countermeasure for it as soon as possible, before this condition gets worse or much harder to treat.
