[YEA] Apple Cider Vinegar removed a mole in 7 days!!! I have to admit, though I am very interested in natural remedies, I was very skeptical that just simple ACV could help to remove a mole. But, for just a few dollars spent on band aids and ACV, why not give it a try?
What I did:
Used a sterile needle to "rough up the skin a bit" over the mole, just break the skin a little, but not try to make it bleed. Then I used a corner piece of tissue and folded it 3-4 times and made it into a neat square. Then I put some ACV into a spray bottle (it is so much easier to apply then) and sprayed enough to soak the tissue. Finally apply it to the mole and cover it with a band aid. I did this twice a day.
In just a couple of days, the mole seemed to transform into a scab. On the seventh evening, it almost fell off (with a little help from me when I saw it came three quarters off by itself anyway. I have to admit, I only very very gently tugged at it and it just fell off.
Now, I am applying honey to a piece of tissue paper and applying that to it. I heard elsewhere on this site (and subsequently others) that honey is great for the healing and minimising any scarring. Well, the ACV worked, so why not give that a try!
By the way, the ACV I used, says it is organic but it didn't even have "the mother" in it, and it still worked!!! Now I have started doing 4 more flat moles, it is day 2 and they are all looking exactly the same as the first one did on day two! Wohoo!
Thank you to all of you who posted before, it really encouraged me to give this a try. Thank you too earthclinic, you are doing a wonderful work!
