[YEA] After reading all the posts here, I also decided to try ACV with mother in it on my mole. I had a mole right beside my nose that became bigger in the last few years, it looked like a bump. At first I wasn't sure if ACV is good idea, I mean it is my face, but. . . For one week I used a part of cotton ball(swab was too small) and soaked in ACV, then pressed against the mole. No scratching or anything else. I did that three times daily(kept for ten minutes) for two days. Nothing happend. . . Well the color was a bit lighter, not very noticable. . Then on the third day I soaked the cotton ball in ACV, squeezed ACV out, so the cotton just felt wet, but looked almost dry. I again placed it on the top of the mole and kept it there firmly. It started to burn in the first two minutes, but I didn't remove it for about half an hour. . Well, I removed the cotton ball,and a black scub covered my mole. The next day I did the same, maybe for twenty minutes, and the day after that I decided to stop using ACV. Scub was very dry and fell of next morning. Five days, and mole was gone for good. As for scar, there is none. It was a tiny wound, then became a layer of dry skin, and now there is a pinkish spot only. My husband was quite sceptical and asked me if I know what I'm doing, but the day the scub fell off, he came back from work, and there was a loud: "I can't believe, it is gone!"
So, the same day I decided to remove a way bigger dark brown mole on the side of my neck, usually covered with my long hair. It is size of a raisin,quite big and raised. My father has the same kind almoust on the same spot. . . The thing is that the top of the mole was quite dry, I suspected, it was from hair coloring. The mole is just between my ear and the hair line. With this one I didn't squeeze out the ACV completely, I used it over night, four nights in a row, and that made my mole look vey wet and it started to break in small pieces. But just the previously dry part(top). Then on day six the rest of my mole became way bigger,looked scary for a bit. There was no burning. . . I remembered what I did with the first mole, I squeezed ACV completely out of the cotton, used the bandaid as before and kept it overnight. I did use some vaseline around the mole, but it was so big and raised, that there was no contact between the skin and the ACV cotton ball. There was burning and kind of painful to touch after few minutes,but my mole was a black scub next morning. So, in my case it helped to squeeze ACV out of cotton, it almost felt/looked dry before I used it on the mole. My second mole is now very dry scub that is barely attached to the skin. It is day nine now,and I think it will be gone tomorrow. So,now I want to thank everyone for sharing your experience,it did help me in a big way. I made right decision and two moles are gone in about two weeks!
