I have had a mole on my chin that started off small and flat like a freckle from age 7 (I am 34 now) and it "grew" over the years to a black raised mole a little smaller than an eraser. I went to a plastic surgeon at the age of 16 who decided to tell me that he could remove this benign mole but it would leave a huge scar that would need stitches and that he could most definitely "fix" my nose...nice right? I finally went back to a different plastic surgeon/dermatologist a few years ago who agreed my mole was non cancerous but again told me that the location on my chin near a prominent fold could not be hidden and be unsightly. I recently went to a third doctor who told me that the times have changed and for a mere $400 she could remove it but it could grow back, be flat, or scar...the only difference would be there wouldn't be stitches.

I finally had enough and decided to try ACV. I take ACV daily in the morning for my immune system and thought .. why not? I made sure to "rough" up my mole (very important! ) and was amazed I could feel the "sting" from the ACV soaked cotton ball quickly! I slept with it overnight and used vaseline around the edges.

The second day the mole looked a little larger and paler than the usual black tone. This made me nervous but I continued to freshen up the cotton ball that I used to my chin and even used a q tip in between to press on it.

The third day the mole started to scab everywhere but the edges so I continued another day and night focusing on the edges. The fourth day I couldn't believe my eyes...the mole was now a shrunken scab! It was so hard to not pick at it but I made sure to keep my hands away. So so hard!

Finally the fifth day that poor sucker was hanging by a thread and I pulled it after my shower. The skin was pink and had a slight discoloration around where the mole was. I'm thinking the vaseline around the edge of the mole helped but not as much as a bandaid surrounding the area would have as other users stated. I would hate to think what it would look like if it didn't have any protection from the ACV, my skin was a little pink.

I am now on day 2 of healing, using those small round band aids and aquaphor to keep it moist. I have heard that "needing air" for wounds to heal is just an old wives tale and the important part of the healing process is NOT to let it scab since the scab will be the cause of a scar. I have told many people at work who think I'm super granola for what I did and they are in shock of how amazing it looks already. I would definitely recommend spending the money to have someone make sure the mole is not cancerous before doing this. It really is amazing how we can "take care" of our bodies with mother nature. This is truly amazing!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Mole (Weird Reaction But Worked!)

It worked! My experience was NOT straight-forward, but it did work.

First thing of note: the mole was checked by the doc prior to trying this and it was benign.It was on my right breast and was slightly raised but also deep in the skin. Dark-ish brown. I figured this wouldn't work in one shot because it's raised, deep, and I have pale white/sensitive skin. In all in took 9 days. Mine NEVER turned black, which freaked me out because that's what most people seem to experience. Mine turned green and brown and green-yellow and brown, which freaked me out even more. But remember, this isn't magic (even though this ugly mole was disappearing before my eyes). It's science. Be smart about your applications and responding to your unique situation and you should get rid of it.I have sensitive skin and it seems to me that leaving it on over night is not the best way to go because ACV is irritating. Even when I surrounded the mole with shea/coco butter, it still felt/looked irritated.

Day 1: I started on Saturday night. Light use of emory board. I did about 3 swishes, slow and light, back and forth, and up and down because I was scared I might feel it scrape. I didn't but I did see slight slight skin flakes. Bandaid and a piece of cotton dipped in ACV overnight.I woke up the next morning and part of it, the center/top, had turned almost a light green but I still saw the ring of the mole normal brown color around the green.

Day 2: Same thing as the first except that I didn't use the emory board. Resulted in no visible change to the mole or the green on the mole.

Day 3: Cleaned it and poked it with a needle twice (where it hadn't turned green). Bandaid and cotton-soaked ACV for 1 hour AM/PM.That night, the green turned brown and the brown covered -almost- the entire mole but the mole was still raised the way it was before I started treating it. Still saw a slight bit of mole around the edges.

Day 4: That morning, the brown was slightly darker and the edges were now covered to the skin line. Cleaned it, slight poking to penetrate the brown, and bandaid/cotton/ACV for an hour. My skin was slightly irritated around the edges of the mole but it looked possibly flatter. I showered again that night and did the same treatment for an hour.

Day 5: I woke up without any visible differences but the brown felt harder--closer to a scab--but still unsure if it was in fact a scab. Roughed it up a bit with a tooth pick to see if I could feel anything below the brown (I couldn't). Bandaid/cotton/ACV for 1 hour. Checked it. The brown had turned back to green and it was mushy. Like a very light green. It looked like how a scab looks when you let it soak. I washed it with anti-bacterial soap and let it breath all day. It dried to a light brown, had a white circle around the edge, AND IT WAS FLAT.

Day 6: Cleaned it with anti-bacterial soap again. Gently. It was gross! Again, green and mushy in the shower. This is where I started to get nervous. I felt like maybe it was infected or maybe it was really working- I couldn't tell! I decided to put a q-tip soaked in ACV on it for 5 minutes AM/PM. It was now 100% completely flat when the scab dried out. The scab was thick and dark brown, and the skin around it looked aggravated. But I couldn't tell if the scab was just a top layer and there was mole underneath or if the mole had been replaced by scab now.---That night I read that coconut oil is antimicrobial (helps eat away at moles) and antibacterial (helps eat away at infection). It also is soothing for the skin.

Day 7-9: Kept the mole-scab soaked in Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. I never heated it. Just rubbed it into the skin, into the scab gently, and around the entire area. Then I put a chunk of the coconut oil under some gauze and soaked the mole-scab constantly. It felt amazing. I also read that the oil would help the scab heal more quickly and with less of a scar.

End of Day 9, the area is WITHOUT a mole, scab, or scar. It's just pinker than the surrounding skin, but not inflamed and red or anything.AMAZING! Life-changer. Can't wait to show the doc :D

Good luck!

Better But With Side Effects

Hello, as I am also using Apple Cider Vinegar for my face moles, I have lot of moles on my face, so I read abt acv, right now m using Apple Cider Vinegar its effect is good but little slow, I started 2 week before, I started using on my 4 moles at a time, in 4 moles 1 mole is near to my eye so I think bcoz m applying avc on that mole I have swelling near to my eyes, even swelling is near to all moles but the mole which is near to eye that look very bad, now m not able to understand should I continue or stop bcoz I can see the result moles r reducing in size so plz help me, I am using Apple Cider Vinegar 4-5 times a day, and bcoz moles is near to eye so m not putting any bandage over it.

I would stop using it if it was near my eye and swelling. I would make sure that it wasn't infected and put something soothing on it like virgin coconut oil until it heals and then reassess.

Hi, I'm currently doing the Apple Cider Vinegar method on an unraised black mole on my thigh (around 5cm wide)

I soak a cotton ball in Apple Cider Vinegar and stick it on with sticky tape and so far the mole has scabbed up but looks like its gone into the skin meaning that the vinegar has penetrated well under the mole and I'm scared there will be a big hole in my leg.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I'm still applying the Acv as the scab hasn't completely fallen off yet.

That "mole" sounds very similar to skin cancer to me. Please be sure to have a doctor check it. When the color is black like you mentioned then its possible to be a melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer.

a friend of mine had Basal Cell Skin cancer on the side of his lip and he applied a cream called "Black Salve" (ingredients: Red Clover, Bloodroot, Galangal, Sheep Sorrel) on top of the fairly large half Dollar size sore.

It was painful, but after 10 days the whole thing fell off and out and the clean hole filled up and was hardly noticeable after a few months.

Regular Doctors had wanted to remove almost a third of his face, that is when he tried this salve.

10 years ago one could buy this salve very reasonable at CanX Products, Nevada, tel: 1-800-996-3203

I've been doing the ACV treatment for a giant mole I have. It's been checked by a doc he said it's fine. It's gross though, it's a half in long protruding out of my belly button! I've been using Apple Cider Vinegar every night 8 hours a night for two weeks. I don't really see much progress. It has a couple small scabs on it but the last one I did (quite small) pulled away from my skin in 3 days. I figured by 2 weeks in I would see some separation? Honestly in the morning it looks agitated and swollen but an hour later it just looks back to normal.

Ok here goes.... I noticed another bump on my face, right next to an area that started looking funny a couple years ago and now has a flat mole. I have lots of flat moles everywhere, always have. fair skinned. 41 years old female. certainly spent too much time "tanning" in the sun... im going to start using the ACV every day and see what happens. I guess you cant tell in my picture, but where the red area is (could almost be a pimple coming up but I know better! ) there is a faint dark spot like maybe a blackhead (but I know better! ) So this is definitely a "before" picture. already have ACV "with the mother" in my fridge.

I've been using Apple Cider Vinegar for 4 days now. I got a mole under my nose just above my lips and got teased before. A little part of it is hard now and darker than it normally is. Is it scabbing now or what? I put Apple Cider Vinegar overnight.

Replied by Brainbuster

Yes, it's just a scab. Leave it alone.

That's what happens when it works.

Better But With Side Effects

I did a ton of searching before I even attempted this..

I decided if I made it through this I would do a review in hopes to help others.

I had a slightly raised mole on the side of my cheek and I hated it. I had gone to the Dr. And it was benign. I asked him to freeze it off and he said No he would have to surgically remove it and it would leave a scar and stitch marks.

I've had them froze off in the past by a Dr. who is way too old to practice so I know freezing them works well. So I was discouraged and aggravated that he wouldn't freeze it off. I had to look at this thing everyday!

It always worked for me In the past with no scarring. Maybe I should have listened to that Dr. Maybe I should have found a different Dr. Either way enough was enough.

I wanted something done. After I read many reviews I decided to try the apple cider vinegar.

It was either going to work or it was going to be the dumbest thing I have ever done.

Either way, could apple cider vinegar Really work? Was I prepared? How harsh could it be right? I have very light skin. I am the one that got a scar from a briar 2 months ago on my hand and it is still there. Reluctantly, I decided to try this.

Day 1. I put vaseline around the edge of the mole of my cheek. (to protect the skin around the area I wasn't treating) I soaked a cotton ball, squeezed out excess and cut to size of area.

I repeated a few times that day and slept in it for 8 hours.

Day 2. I repeated again during the day and then slept again over night with the cotton ball and vinegar

Day 3. I will not lie....I was freaking out. I told myself... I better not apply any more vinegar as it was stinging, the mole was turning black and I was worried. (even though I had read this was part of the process....were they right? I mean you can't believe everything you read on the internet. :)

This thing was big, black, red around my cheek. I drove my sister crazy having her check it to get her opinion. I kept taking photos. Just checking and I was going to be so ashamed if I had to go in to tell the Dr. How dumb I was so then I felt guilt!!!

I was stressed with worry and fear and thinking....what have I done?

I am old enough to know better.

Day 4. I seen a little improvement but still black and Oh my....embarrassing. I was in hiding In my house. slapped a band aid on if I had to leave. The mole was forming a tough scab.

Day 5. Finally seen the light of Day. It scabbed over and I know you're not suppose to help it along....but tht black troll mole had to go. So I carefully and I mean Carefully peeled it back a little to help the process. I didn't rip and tug the scab. It felt like a hard resin.

Well the big black mole is gone.

I have a pink spot in its place really is the first day I consider the healing phase. I don't know what the outcome will be. I do feel that this will heal and it looks very clean straight across.

Would I recommend this or do it again? I am a chronic worrier and I don't like suspense. So for me? Probably Not. With that being said before even attempting this....get the mole checked. That is the number one most important thing. Get it checked!!!!

Talk to your Dr. Ask if it can be froze off.

I had a Dr. Cut on me on the back of my neck once to have a mole removed that was rubbing up against my shirt and now I have Frankenstein Stitches. Personally, I like the freezing method.

If you do decide to try the vinegar. Do so with care. Research, be prepared. Keep a sterile environment. Do not get It infected. stay out of the hot sun until it heals. Use vitamin E and Aloe vera Or coconut oil.

I am not recommending anyone do this. This review is based on my experience Only.

So now onto the healing phase.

Its bright pink. However, with what I dealt with earlier in the week this is just fine with me.

The area looks smooth, clean and like a bad zit that has been popped and irritated. Looks like a chemical burn. What ever you decide... good luck. This was an experience But I am too impatient not to know the unknown! Good luck!!!

I tried the apple cider vinegar before and it worked great. Today I decided to try it on another mole. It is not working at all and I'm extremely worried, the mole became flat, multiplied in size and became grey/black. Did this happen at all to you? Thank you

After reading and watching everything on the net about home removal of moles I decided to embark on my own home experiment. I have three raised ones on the right side of my face near my ear. The more I read the more I realized my "moles" are not ordinary moles but sebborhic keratosis. I'm day 20 in on this experiment with ACV. Initially I just applied an ACV Q-tip on the moles a couple of times per day, but after about 10 days I started sleeping with an ACV soaked cotton bandaged to my face. This has definitely helped speed up the process. The SK is still there, but much flatter. During the day I've been applying a bit of castor oil mixed with baking soda to it. It leaves my face a bit gritty feeling but I didn't want to smell like ACV at work. The castor oil/baking soda seems to help soften it up.

I'm encouraged and will continue with this treatment, and wanted to share with the rest of you to encourage you to remain patient. Depending on the size of the mole or SK it's probably not going to clear up in just a few days.

So I'm trying out this apple cider vinegar treatment. I absolutely dislike the smell and taste of vinegar and unfortunately I have a small flat mole right under my nose that I've been wanting to get rid of for the longest time. I've been using a mixture of castor oil and baking soda for about 5 nights and its definitely reduced in size but its taking quite a while. Before I apply anything I put coconut oil on the area I'm treating just to make sure my skin is safe and moisturized. For the apple cider vinegar treatment I'm dabbing a q-tip in the vinegar and applying it on the mole only, doing my best not to get it on the surrounding area. I will continue doing this every 15 minutes or so. For people that don't have a lot of time on their hands, I think I would do this treatment at night while sleeping. Of course you're not going to wake up every 15 minutes though so results may be different. I will update on how this treatment goes, fingers crossed.

It's been a week since my first mole fled, and just a few days since the second one vanished. I only applied ACV about 4 different times, but each time I was spending about half an hour dabbing an ACV-soaked q-tip on my moles. I'm removing four moles of different sizes. The two that are completely gone were just a few mm high and the area is still pinkish.

The other moles were larger and needed more applications. One was on my hip and I just reduced the size of it instead of removing completely. I may go back and remove it but for now it's just a small flesh colour bump 3mm high, healed VERY well/fast. The 4th mole was an odd shape (none were cancerous) so I'm not sure yet if it's gone (some of it was flesh colour). For this one, I taped a cotton pad on it a couple times and the surrounding area was damaged (regret that). My method:

Dip q-tip in a little cup that has ACV. Dab with precision right in the center of the mole. Wipe away excess, but try to avoid applying excess. When the mole has dried up a minute or two later, dab again. Don't scratch the mole, but you can take the q-tip and rub slowly at the mole, allowing the mole pores to stretch and let the ACV in. When it comes away from the skin easily, stop applying any ACV and then Polysporin for the wound until it heals.

Hello everyone. I just went through treating mole removal using Apple Cider Vinegar. I started my treatment on 3/22/15, used a cotton ball saturated with ACV. I applied this daily for 3 days, it flattened out, turned black, scabbed over, the scab has come off now 3/28/15. I also used an emery board to rough it up but did make the mistake of accidentally burning my skin surrounding the mole. I am currently treating this with bacitrin and Mederma. Has anyone had their moles return after removal? Good luck to everyone who may be contemplating on trying this, you won't be disappointed. I wish I would have known about this so many years ago, this is amazing!

Just wondering if you burned your skin around mole...what did it look like? I did same thing same process as you I have a freckle on my nose..I dislike so much..I applied Vaseline around freckle its kinda tough to only get on the freckle not the normal skin..

So after applying Vaseline I applied Apple Cider Vinegar to the freckle and I kinda tried to poke at it a little it bleed a little.. I applied more acv..I noticed a white ring around freckle..and redness around 2 today.. I woke up horrified that it's red and that there's a white ring around freckle so I stopped applying acv...and all day I have only been applying aloe vera...

with your experience did you also see the white ring..and redness and did it go away and how long did it take to turn back to normal...for it to look not red or no white ring..does the white ring go away?

I used Vitamin E Oil around the Mole, apple cider Vinegar only applied to the Pea sized black Mole and to the bandaid, only applying it with a Q-tip to the area where the bandaid will be touching the mole. In about a week it was scabbed over and gone. I only had a wee bit of burning on the mole and found out that I'm allergic to the tape on the bandaids. Pretty much all healed up know with a minimal scar, which I am sure will also be gone by summer.

Better But With Side Effects

I read about Apple Cider Vinegar and everybody's experiences so I thought of doing this on a mole dark brown in colour over my upper lip which I had since really long. I did the Apple Cider Vinegar treatment for over 2 weeks with stinging pains some nights, I left it in on overnight for over 2 weeks. I thought it was a big mole so it would take time. Finally for the passed 2-3 days the top area dryed up amd the scab came off tonight. But whats left of it is like I have picked off the top part of the mole and the lower area is still left. It's kind flat and dry from the center area and yhe lower part is way lighter than it used to be. I don't what to do with it, have I removed only a part of it or is it swelling only the middle part from where the scab came off has alreay got hair growing on it. Please help!!! Should I continue or stop doing it??

Worked Temporarily

So I removed a flat black mole between my eyebrows three years ago with apple cider vinegar, and it didn't come back till last month. Do moles usually take that long to come back? I keep scratching the new one off (it kind of just looks like a very very light tiny freckle now but I'm scared it's going to grow to be huge again) so I don't know if it'll grow to be the same size or bigger than the old one, but it looks like it's only on the surface, which is strange. But every time I scratch it off, it comes back a few weeks later. Is this normal? Please help!

Hi, I have multiple moles on my face. They are all flat and their sizes range from a grain of salt to a dot made from a generic fine-tipped sharpie.

I have decided to use apple cider vinegar to remove them and I just want to know some tips to quicken the process and/or reduce the side-effects. Also I was not able to find any posts about people removing FLAT moles successfully - all I found were for raised ones.


Replied by Mr. Ree

Dab a cue-tip in the apple cider vinegar and then dab it on a few moles before you go to bed...It will remove them in less than a month...I would just work with a few at a time...You may also dab the moles another convenient time of the day for you.

Hello everyone!! I love this site and I truly enjoy reading everyone's comments about their mole removal journey. I've had a small (3mm-4mm), flesh-colored mole above my lip for several years now. It causes me so much stress and, after reading this blog for awhile, I decided to give the ACV method a try last week. I roughed up my mole with a sterilized needle and surrounded the mole with Vaseline. Afterwards, I placed a Q-tip dipped in ACV on the site. Within several minutes, the mole had shriveled up and turned into a black scab. I left it alone for almost a week; however, I noticed that the skin around the mole site was red and raised. (it almost looks like I have a life saver around the scab). The scab came off to reveal a crater area, but the skin around it is still inflammed and red! Did I remove the whole mole or did I just doughnut punch the center of it? I have a crater, which looks worse now that the skin around it is still raised and red. Please help! Did anyone else experience this? I have been placing antibiotic ointment and Neosporin in the crater. Any advice would be much appreciated. I am so terrified that I ruined my face forever!

Replied by KT

Ally and Jerry: I don't know whether this will help you, but I'll tell you what happened to me.

Years ago I got an injection in my hip. The area at the injection site developed a huge crater and it was there a very long time. My PCP couldn't advise me but ordered a biopsy that was "normal". I cannot recall how long it was there but I started to vigorously scrub over it with the towel after I showered. Once in awhile I would rub/massage the area with my fingers and eventually it filled in...I just assumed the stimulation helped regenerate the skin cells.

Since the areas are on your faces, I would suggest applying vitamin E (pierce the capsule) on the area after massaging and before you go to bed to help reduce scarring. Apply vitamin E before exposure to the sun. It would be best to use a small band aid to keep it covered. Taking vitamin E internally has also been reported to help reduce scarring.

I hope this works for you. :-) ~Kt~

Apple Cider Vinegar for Moles:

I did this for a small clear mole on the bridge of my nose. Worked perfectly with no burning, but I used vaseline around it. I'm trying it now with a larger, skin toned mole in the crease of my nose. This one is taking longer, on day two and still not crusting up. It's starting to get a little dry but that's it. Since this one is larger and clearly has a root, I think it will take longer.

So I need help. I have had this mole under my arm for 15 years, it is about the size of a pencil eraser that is located in my armpit and I found the idea about ACV. So I have been soaking a cotton ball and putting it on the mole and it has been about two weeks. However it only becomes white on parts of it and when I take the ACV off it just got back to normal. I have not "roughed it up", because now everytime I put on the ACV it stings for awhile. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to try and rough it up? It is hard with the position of the mole. Any suggestions?

Replied by Morgan

Hi Sarah, I think roughing it up does help. My mole didn't turn into a scab until after I poked it with a needle, which I think helped the ACV get into the mole and scab quicker. As for your mole just changing back to normal after you take the ACV off, maybe you're not leaving it on long enough? Do you leave it on overnight? That is best.

I put a piece of cotton soaked in raw apple cider vinegar over the mole and put a bandaid over it. It was on for most of a day. The mole was small, maybe an eighth of an inch, raised a little, dark on top. The next day I scratched at the mole and it came right off. It's all healed now. The skin around the mole was unaffected. There was a little pink crater where the mole was, it's all healed now. Awesome. Thank you all who helped me.

I have two other moles I did the same thing to, but they are larger. They didn't come off right away, they are maybe a quarter of an inch, and raised. They have all been there for years. I'm allergic to the bandaid sticky stuff, so there is a red inflamed area where the sticky part touched my skin. I used just the sticky tabs on the other two moles and it made big red marks on my skin. One mole got pale looking, now it's like a scab, but red around it from the bandaid still. The other is like a scab, but it's black looking and still raised, and not red around it. I put the bandaids on them for three days or so. They all burned like people say. I'm waiting for the redness to go away so I can do it again using the whole bandaid, this time, instead.

I am very happy not having "stuff" on my face.

Hey Anon! Thank you so much for your post! I am so sorry to bother you, but I recently tried this method to remove a small (3mm) flesh colored mole above my lip. I scratched up the mole with a sterilized needle, applied Vaseline around the site, then applied a q-tip dipped in Bragg's ACV to the mole. The mole instantly shriveled up and turned into a scab. I was so excited to see it literally dissolve before my eyes. Several days later, the scab came off and much to my dismay I have been left with a small crater (still continuing to scab) and red, raised skin/inflammed around the crater. I am so nervous that I have destroyed my face forever! Did you experience irritated/raised inflammed skin around your crater? How long did it take the crater to fill in? What does your scar look like now? Thank you so much for all of your help!
