[YEA] 04/12/2007: Steve from Metairie, Louisiana: "I have had at least 10 moles removed by my dermatologist, and after they were burned off (they usually burn, or freeze them), It took about 2 weeks for the cuts to heal (depending on the depth of the cut). Then, once the skin was basically healed, a pink mark was left behind. After a while (usually a month or two), my color would return and blend in with the surrounding area. Some of the areas that my dermatologist cut left a hole in my skin, which has never filled in. So far, Iodine has removed moles from my skin, but never left any holes (depressions) in my skin."
[YEA] 04/11/2007: Steve from Metairie, Louisiana: "Iodine worked to remove my moles. Make sure to gently scratch (softly) and then apply the iodine. I applied the iodine at least 3X's a day."
[YEA] 04/05/2007: Darren from Walhalla, SC: "Iodine helped get rid of moles but left pink spots how do I make the pink spots heal faster or blend in with the skin?"
[YEA] 03/13/2007: Shane from Sunbury, Victoria, Australia: "Thank you everyone. Iodine worked brilliantly for removing my moles. The trick was to rub them with a pumice stone or scratch them with a needle before applying the iodine 2-3 times a day. Hey presto ! Mole gone in a week to 10 days. Once the moles turn hard you can stop applying the iodine. I also found apple cider vinegar worked as well, but must be careful not to over apply as it irritates the surrounding skin (only needed to apply this for 2-3 days to kill the mole. Thanks to this site for the information, I never thought it would be so easy."
[YEA] 02/26/2007: Diane from Chesapeake, VA: "I use tincture of iodine (everyday) on skin ulcers which refuse to heal. Sometimes I apply iodine 2 to 3 times a day. I never miss a day when treating squamous cell carcinoma. The area being treated by the tincture of iodine often becomes very sensitive or itchy...don't discontinue the iodine...keep applying iodine on the ulcer. The itchy skin will scab up...it's just the healing process. Scrape off the skin if it again develops a white flaky patch or a brown scab...then, apply more iodine. Use the iodine for at least one to two months until the skin ulcer has completely disappeared. Then, use Retin-A cream to complete the skin rejuvenation process. Use Raw Organic Palm Fruit Oil along with the iodine to promote deep healing and also use Raw Organic Palm Fruit Oil along with sun block to prevent future skin damage. The ulcer patches have developed on my hands and lower arms. One skin damaged area shows my skin separating on crease lines on top of my wrist. The day after I applied the tincture of iodine to the separating skin, the crease lines showed signs of healing, as blood circulation appeared in the area. The areas I treat are all about the size of a quarter, which is larger than the freckle-sized spot. I figure the underlying skin damage takes in a larger area and it may only show up on the skin as a small freckle-sized spot. Last, everyone will ask you why you are using iodine on your skin...it's orange...it's sooo old fashioned. Don't let the embarrassment of orangey skin stop your self-treatment...it beats having a doctor remove the cancer and leaving you with holes where the carcinoma or melanoma used to be. I use this treatment on all skin problems, to include possible melanoma. In addition to the topical treatment, I plan to add a daily dose of Lugol's Iodine in my drinking water. I want to treat all cancers and other health problems from within. I have red hair and white skin with lots of freckles, and I am very sun sensitive. I have been terribly burned year after year while growing up in California. I am now 56 years old, and the skin cancer is just starting to appear. That's why I feel it necessary to add the Lugol's Iodine daily to my drinking water."Replies
[YEA] 11/06/2010: Mlh from Greenville, Sc replies: "After having moles on my body all of my life I figured I was stuck with them. I had a few removed (surgically) when I was a teenager and the rest I figured I'd have forever. Until I saw this thread I figured why not give iodine a try. It couldn't hurt right? I can't believe it.
Within days the moles had dried up, and like others mentioned, formed a scab. I kept up with the iodine and low an behold the moles are gone! I had 3 prominent moles on my chest that I was always self conscious of. They're gone! Why didn't I know about this 20 years ago??? Thanks for an awesome tip!"
[YEA] 01/18/2006: Brenda from DE: "Iodine is excellent for toenail fungus, ringworm, fever blisters, moles and skin tags, hangnails, etc. Just a few drops on a q-tip is all it takes. Use daily until the "boo-boo" is gone."
[YEA] Teresa from Lowell, North Carolina: "I had a raised mole to come up on my face and several skin tags to appear under my arm. I was embarrassed by the mole on my face, but didn't have the money to have it removed. Using a q-tip, I rubbed iodine on both the mole and skin tags at night before going to bed. Within 3 to 7 days the skin tag dried and fell off while the mole went away. I have shared this information with my sister who has removed several as well."
Iodine, Tea Tree Oil
[YEA] 11/14/2012: Ann from Sydney, Nsw, Australia: "Hi, I've had a 1cm raised mole under my bra strap for many years. Decided to try to get rid of it. Over a 2 week period I applied iodine (Lugol's solution) about 4 times and applied tt oil every day... Sometimes twice a day. When I applied the tto I could feel gritty material coming away as it broke up. I think the iodine actually "killed" the thing though. Only took 2 weeks! Good luck everyone! Ann."
Malt Vinegar, Vitamin C Powder
06/22/2012: Sally from Birmingham, Uk: "Hi, I have recently applied malt vineger and vitamin c powder to 4 moles on my face and 1 on my arm. I followed what I needed to do correctly, using a sterilized needle to scratch the moles and file. Then applied the vinegar and vitamin c powder. After scratching them with the needle and file, it stung a bit then I put a band aid over them and went to sleep.
I did scratch quite a lot of the moles off in the first day but this was every couple of hours. Some times they would bleed only slightly, and majority only dead skin tissue of the moles would come off.
They have gone flat and turned into scabs, it's just making me feel a bit sick all day. And the treatment area is flat brown or black however it has gotten slightly bigger. But I assume this is part of the healing process. Some of the surrounding skin healing too. Is this normal?
I would also like to know how do you know what the root of the mole is supposed look like and how deep can they go so I know what to look for so I get the whole mole. So it doesn't grow back again. Other wise I've wasted my time on these moles
Plus if you don't get the root can the moles get bigger when growing back?
Oh yeah do I wait till the scabs drop off and repeat the process?
Thank you in advance."
08/07/2012: Kay from Jax, Fl/jax/usa: "Well, I used to have just one small mole located in my one eye behind the retina. It has been there for several years and the eye doc's say unless changes in size, no worries. Most recently after a visit with the retina specialist, I discovered I now have 2 moles behind the retina in the other eye. The specialist doesn't seem to be worried and said they show no signs of cancer. However, after my research on the Internet, I see that they can cause tearing of the retina which I have had happen now twice to me in the past several years. I don't believe the moles can be removed and I can't imagine any vitamins which could make them dissolve. It is not like a skin mole it is in the eye. Any suggestions?
PS I am going to get another opinion although I have had two opinions when I had only one mole and no one seemed to worry about it."
09/30/2011: Moley from Anonymous: "In the past year I've had maybe 50 small flat brown moles show up on my body, on my stomach and under my breast are. What is causing this and how can I get rid of so many? My Dr saw them during my physical but didn't think anything fo them."
09/08/2011: Ruth from Uk: "I have lots of moles all over my body. They ruin my life and stop me from going swimming, wearing skirts, etc. My doctor won't remove them because they are benign. My moles are mostly flat or very slightly raised and are fairly small but are unsightly and numerous. I want them gone and topical solutions such as garlic didn't work. What can I take internally to fix this problem and get rid of them? I eat a high raw, low sugar diet already."Replies
09/10/2011: Catherine from Wellington, New Zealand replies: "Not an internal remedy but I have personally had great success painting moles with iodine. They fade gradually with consistent painting. Hope this helps."
09/14/2011: Ruth from Uk replies: "Hi! Do you need to scratch it first? I'd rather not, it makes me feel uneasy. Can it be dangerous in any way?"
08/08/2011: Cheryl from Knoxville, Tennessee: "My daughter had a mole removed on the top of her knee by a dermatologist three years ago. It was about the size of a pencil eraser and slightly raised. The Dr.just scraped it off. What remains is a larger spot, reddish and about the size of a AA battery end. Since it's on the top of her knee and visible, friends ask all the time what it is. I was thinking about taking her to a plastic surgeon but hate to go to that expense just to avoid a scar and no guarantees it will work. Anyone have any thought on whether ACV would work on it? I'm assuming there still must be mole roots there and I should scrape and soak ACV on it. I'd love any feedback!"Replies
08/08/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "What is ACV ? Please, all posters, define your aconyms when using them. As to mole removal: Moles should be removed by qualified dermatologists. It is not that expensive. Moles can be precancerous tissues, not something to play around with. As to scar removal: Scar tissue is more than skin deep. This is true for permanent scars. The skin deep ones will dissappear with time. I have a lot of scars. I had some surgery to repair the worst one. A hole the size of a silver dollar in my back. The exit wound from a frontal gunshot wound. The rest I live with and there are many. Some large and ugly. I very much understand why any woman would be more concerned about such things and I very much recommend seeing a truly good cosmetic surgeon to do what can be done to remove disturbing scars. See a good, reputable doctor about this and discuss with him or her what can be done about this scar. For her sake: do not rough up the scarred area and apply some home remedy. Again, permanent scars are more than skin deep....Oscar"
08/08/2011: Mitch6114 from Gatineau, Quebec replies: "I have used 35% hydrogen peroxide successfully many times to burn off warts anywhere on the body even on the face. First get Avery hole reinforcements (32203) available in the paper and labels department of any department store. Place one hole reinforcement on the wart to expose only the wart and help protect the healthy skin around it. Then you take a very small round band aid, place a drop of 35% hydrogen peroxide in the center of the band aid, place the band aid on the wart and leave it for at least 2 hours or overnight. You will feel a slight burning sensation (depending on your pain threshold) for the first hour or so, then it will stop burning. Then, remove it, the wart should fall off by itself. If not, you can repeat the same operation a second time. It is effective and cheap."
