I've been using ACV on a large flat mole on my leg for three days and it hasn't hardened or scabbed, but it got slightly darker and wider? Is this normal? I really don't want it to stay larger.
Everything has worked great. I'm 3 days in the the 4 moles on my face a flat and black. Should I keep using the ACV? Please let me know ASAP
Hi , I just started doing the Apple Cider Vinegar treament on my mole , my mole is in my genital area. & ive always been ashamed of it. So I "rough it up " , using a nail filer & apply petroleum jelly around the surronding skin . I then soak a q-tip in the Apple Cider Vinegar and apply the Apple Cider Vinegar to the pea sized mole I only hold it on there for about 1-2min & apply it 3 times a day. Should I apply it longer? I need this mole fast gone fast as possible any suggestions?
So as I metioned before, I tried removing a small flat mole I have on my face. It only took 5 days for it to be off. Although I didnt get the ACV on too good so only a tiny part is still on (My fault). Still, I couldnt be happier! Having the majority off for good. It was all a SUCCESS. Good luck to all you out there trying it.
A couple of days ago I saw on the web that you could remove a mole with ACV so I talked it out with my parents and they agreed. I have a small dark flat mole right above my lip on the left. Its really annoying. Also when im talking to someone and their eyes just drift to it. So as you can see I hate this mole. This will be my 4th day trying to remove it with ACV. Its actually getting quite hard now. Im pretty sure its in the process of scabbing. The skin around it is pretty red and irritated. I am using vaseline so no worries. I just want to get this mole off my face for good. Anyone know how long it will take? Remember it is starting to scab.
Help will be very appreciated. Thanks! Xx
I had a mole just above my lip and under my nose, for years I wanted to get rid of it but my mum always reminded me it was a beauty spot and I shouldn't change how god made me. She had a point but I couldn't stand it anymore, some people embrace there moles and look good but I just couldn't do it. To me it just ruined my face, I always felt I could see the people staring and thinking who knows what. So I decided to get rid of it I always thought the only way to get rid of it was to get laser treatments or the painful way and get it cut out. I couldn't believe how much they charged just for one mole.. So I decided to investigate.
I found out about Apple Cider Vinegar getting rid of them, I purchased some and started applying it a few days later after I looked into it abit more. When I started I 'roughed it up' I soaked a cotton bud in ACV and placed it on my face with a bandaid, held it there for about a hour but I had forgot to buy vaseline so I thought I would just make sure it didnt touch the surrounding skin. But it did.. And it wasnt pretty, the mole itself was nearly completley flat which was a plus and had gone dark brown/black it had burned a layer of my skin it didnt hurt just didnt look very nice. I applied burn cream on my burn and it started to heal. I repeated this for only 2 more days being alot more careful and I noticed it was completely flat and it was turning into a scab like thing. I had been covering it with makeup cause it was so dark and the burn around it wasn't nice and I noticed it looked bumpy and I came home about a hour ago and washed my makeup off my face and it was just half hanging off, I couldn't believe my eyes. I phoned my boyfriend straight away and told him the good news. I just had to tell someone, I should of probably used a ear cleaner but I just cleaned the area and pulled it off.
But my question is once the mole does fall off do you apply more ACV to burn the roots of it or do you just leave it and apply cream to cover the skin back up?????
7/4/12 -- Results of ACV test on 3mm flat mole on face. Day 1 (6/29/12) = applied ACV through hole cut in bandaid and covered with a second bandaid saturated with ACV. Day 2 = Refreshed bandaids. Put 1 teaspoon ACV in a small cup to evaporate overnight and concentrate the acid. Day 3 = New system = applied concentrated ACV directly to mole and to a new bandaid placed over mole. Day 4 = Half of mole came off when rubbed with Qtip, leaving dark pink underneath. Day 5 = Stinging sensation on mole when ACV applied. Day 6 (7/4/12) = Rest of brown mole surface came off when rubbed with Qtip! Light pink underneath. No other skin irritation. Success!

I have been using ACV for 5 days on the tops of the moles but only ruffing it up then dabbing ACV on it 3 to 4 times a day. Did get the scabing but not srinking. now I am trying it overnight using Vitimen E oil around the large moles and soaking cotton in ACV and taping it on over night and see if I can get them to go away. I really hope this works. Read in this section that if it didn't work I was doing something wrong. Hope I am just doing something wrong..lol

Using ACV to remove moles has had excellent results, but the vaseline part sounds messy. I have a small (3mm) flat mole on my jaw just in front of my ear. To protect the other skin from the ACV, I cut a 3mm hole in the center of a round bandaid, stuck it over the mole, and applied the ACV through the hole with a Q-tip. Then I took a second round bandaid, saturated the pad with more ACV, and put it over the hole so it could soak in overnight. This gets the most ACV with the least mess. I hope it works for others too.

After reading all of the comments on this site, I tried using apple cider vinegar on two of my moles: one small raised one on my shoulder and one slightly larger raised one on my ear. I roughed them up a bit first with an emery board, then held a cotton swab dipped in vinegar on them for about 10 minutes each, until I could feel it burning a bit. A few times a day I reapplied some more vinegar with a cotton swab. I did not leave the vinegar on to soak, mostly because I did not want to walk around with bandaids on.. Plus the ear one would have been almost impossible to bandage. Both moles turned black and scabbed over within a day, and within 2 or 3 days the scabs looked like they were almost ready to fall off, so I stopped applying the vinegar. On about the 4th or 5th day they did come off (ok, I picked at it a little bit, the curiosity was killing me) and they look amazing. The one on my neck is just a tiny pink scar now, and looks better every day. The one on my ear is completely gone, you would not know it was ever there. I did try it again on another (mostly flat) mole on my chin. This one I did not rough up first, just applied the vinegar, and when the scab came off there is still a tiny little light brown mark there. It does look a lot better than the mole did though. I may try reapplying vinegar on that one again.

I have been treating a raised mole with ACV. Then I applied Iodine 2% a few times. Some of it scabbed & I did touch it even though I know not to. Today the skin is raised up around the mole. Could it be just the body pushing out the mole or am I being paranoid? It looks so weird from the angle. Before it looked like skin with a mole sitting on top. Now it looks like a nipple, oh my gosh. Is this normal when using this method? I'm not sure I should continue.
Also, the mole did change color, went from brown to kinda bloody red / fleshy color & feels hard. Any advice is appreciated.

Hey guys..question: I started the apple cider vinegar treatment 3 days ago.. My mole looks like a flesh hump with a brown mole on it... The second day it started bleeding and some of the mole came off not all though... The hump got a little bit bigger and I observed also a swelling around the mole.. I guess its from the acid.. I use chap stick to protect my skin... The today is the third day and I saw a white circle around the mole.. The mole turned to a dark brown... Still swelling around the mole but no scab.. I am wondering if the mole will probably fall off but the flesh hump will stay.. I tried to avoid surgery so that's why I tried this way... I put the soaked cotton ball on it for twice a day.. Always 3-4 hours... I really need some help here if ppl had the same mole and had the mole gone but the hump stayed??? thanks

I've had a mole on my face for as long as I could remember! It was tiny and unnoticeable when I was a child but grew bigger and darker as time went on. I've always hated it ever since I got teased about it throughout middle school and high school. I've been so insecure most of my life so I decided to just get it over with and get it removed. I was about to set up an appointment with the dermatologist when I came across this apple cider vinegar method. I thought, "why not?" doesn't hurt to try right? I purchased a brand of ACV with 5% acidity and began applying it on 2/20. I first put chapstick around the surrounding skin and later, vaseline. Then I got a q-tip and soaked it with Apple Cider Vinegar and applied it on the mole after I "roughed it up" a bit using my finger nail. I didn't let it bleed though! I taped a cotton ball soaked with Apple Cider Vinegar on it and kept repeating the process. I had school and work so I didn't get to do the process consistently. I noticed that it got much flatter after each day and my mole was pretty raised! Over the course of the treatment, I decided to just scrape the mole with an emory board, apply vaseline over surrounding skin, and apply Apple Cider Vinegar every half hour or so using a q-tip. I didn't tape anything over anymore, just simply rubbed Apple Cider Vinegar with a q-tip for 10 mins straight and left it alone for about half an hour. Long story short, the mole was half off by earlier yesterday and I know I probably shouldn't have done this but I peeled the rest of the mole off (which, of course, caused bleeding) but I cleaned it up and the skin around it doesn't look too bad thanks to the vaseline. There is now a small crater where the mole used to be and it's really whitish. I'm hoping it'll get better with time so I'll update later!

Hey everyone! Listen... If you want to remove your moles than this is how I just did it for literally under five dollars!!!! I bouth apple cider vinegar and it was the safeway brand! I also bought iodine of tincture (safeway brand) this cost me just about 4 dollars and 50 cents. So what I did was like everyone else I soaked a cotton ball in ACV and taped it over the mole. I left it over night, and the next day it changed color to a mild blue which was kind of scary. (Keep in mind my mole was about the size of a pencil eraser, it was brown with black spots; perhaps atypical but with faith in God and lot's of research I decided to avoid medical bills and remove it myself! ) I had this mole for years mind you. Anyhow, I kept the ACV treatment going for three days and on the third day I noticed it was turning black and becoming flat. Also, I neglected to put vaseline around the surrounding skin so the ACV burned the surrounding skin so I stopped using the cotton swab and I began rubbing iodine around the irritated skin and dabbing the mole with ACV using a Q-tip. I did this for another two days so far I'm about a week into the treatment. Once the mole was completely flat, I began soaking the mole with a Iodine of tincture (safeway brand) and three solid days of doing this three times a day, the mole turned into a scab and today it FELL OFF!!!! AMEN!
I have had a raised mole on my chin for about 10 years now. It started out flat and then raised up to be a little bump. It wasn't that big but it was brown and in a place that I just didn't like especially because it wasn't always there, it sprang up in my early 20s. I decided I wanted to have it removed and asked the doctor about it. She suggested I go to a dermatologist to have it removed because it was on my face. The mole was not that large, but raised like I said... It was smaller than a split pea, maybe about half the size. I set up an appointment and in between that time my sister had 2 moles removed at a dermatologist and one left a large scar. I started to not want to do this. I went anyway and they told me that the mole was benign and that there was potential for it to scar if they removed it. They suggested I go to a plastic surgeon so I went. I have no insurance but even if I did this wouldn't be covered. They charged me over $100 to look at the mole and tell me nothing was wrong with it and then said to remove it would cost almost $500 and that it could leave a scar, the same thing the dermatologist told me. I decided to keep my mole and deal with it.
Then I came across this site. I figured I had nothing to lose, and I'm glad I tried it! I removed the mole in less than a week with Apple Cider Vinegar! I very lightly scratched the mole with a pin, not enough to break the skin though. I was sure to go around the bottom of the mole. I put a little vitamin a&d ointment around the mole and covered it with a small piece of cotton soaked in ACV and a bandaid. I didn't use organic ACV, just the store brand that I had in my cupboard. After the first night the mole was darker but seemed flatter. After the second night of treatment the mole was completely flat. By the third treatment it was a scab. I only did the treatment for 4 days, it might take longer if your mole is larger. After the mole turned into a very hard scab I stopped the ACV and began putting vitamin E oil on it during the day. I started the treatment on a saturday night and by Thursday the scab fell off leaving behind no trace of a mole, just pink skin.
It has been 10 days since the treatment and my chin is almost 100% healed. The skin is a bit dry in that area and a tiny bit pink but is easily covered by makeup and I'm sure it will be completely normal in about another week. I put the vitamin a & d ointment on it at night and this seems to help. This method works!
