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.

Hi, just to give you some feedback and let you know my experience, I have already posted a while away on this forum.

I had a raised flesh coloured mole on my face for years, I used apple cider vinegar **** protect area around ***** I did not realise the importance of this. away after 5 days the scab came off and looked very red!! I bought some bio oil and pure collagan gel from boots chemists in the uk and rubbed them both on every night.

i rubbed the bio oil in first and then rubbed the collegan gel in and left it over night. it has taken from may till now so 5 months but you cannot even tell there was a mole there now.

it has gone altogether no scar nothing. hope this helps

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?

Be sure to treat the area around the mole with the vaseline. I did not do this, and now I have painful sores and/or ulcers on surrounding skin. Also it should be noted I was putting fresh Apple Cider Vinegar several times a day, don't know if this made it worse on regular skin. still waiting for mole to die though...

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?????

35% hydrogen peroxide food grade and a cotton swab will remove warts moles(make sure not melonoma) skin cancers, sun spots, dab the swab about 5 minutes until the object turns white, the more you do this the quicker it will just fall off and will not leave a scar, use two swabs, one to catch the run off as it burns, I was scheduled by my dermatologist to remove a skin cancer off my upper lip in two weeks, when I went back it was gone and she said well where is it? and where was it? she had taken a biopsi and it was cancer.

Seriously your story sounds just like mine!! Im not even kidding. I also have a dark small flat mole above my lip on the left. I really cant stand it. Especially when im talking to someone and their eyes just seem to drift at it. Well today is like my 4th day using ACV to remove it. Its on the process of scabbing. I have a question, should I keep applying more ACV to it or not? Please help. Thanks! Xx

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

I used hydrogen peroxide and alternated with tea trea oil to get rid of my sebaceous keratoses. It took about 10 days of using it 5-7 times per day. I also filed them occasionally with a nail file.

I used ACV for a couple days and today I went shopping and tried on some shorts and I noticed the mole had turned black and had a white rings around it so I rubbed it and the black part rubbed off.. so now I have this scab.. do you think it worked or is it going to come back?

Posted by Molly (Tucson, Arizona) on 06/29/2012

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.

I was going to use duct tape with a hole puncher, but if bandaids work that's even better. Putting another soaked bandaid over it is a terrific idea which I didn't think of... Thanks for posting.. I will do that as that is the cleanest solution I have seen, with burning skin issue resolved.

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.

Was up. I'm 15 and just got out of high school and working my way into summer. I've heard all the sucess stories on how ACV can remove most moles in just a few days. Well I wanted untill summer to try this method because I heard that the ACV's acid really stains and burns your skin (which leaves a crappier mark than the mole itself! ). Anyway, I have 3 moles Ive been dying to remove. So right now I started on one that was the size of a pea, a bit elavated and more red than brown. I would "rough up" the mole first till it was to the point of bleeding but it didn't bleed. I Would then apply some ACV on a q-tip on the mole for a few minutes. I would notice that the area around the mole was red and swelled, and a white ring formed as well (uggg nasty). Well I slept with a piece of cotton soaked in ACV and a bandade, and wake up to see my mole and a radius of the skin around it was black! I think it was because I was stupid and applied ACV to the area around the mole. Anyway it's day 2 and I'm continuing to apply ACV. Any suggestions?

I am going on vacation to Paris in a few days and I really wanted to get rid of this ugly mole right on the edge of my upper lip. It grew on my face when I was about 10 years old. It's about half a pencil eraser sized. Anyways, I tried removing it with ACV in 2009 by taping an ACV q-tip cotton ball onto the mole for about an hour. When I took off the tape, I had missed the mole almost completely and burned the skin surrounding it. I did get a piece of the mole with the ACV. The burned skin looked white and the mole turned darker and eventually scabbed over. I picked it off and I thought it was over. Unfortunately.. It came back as soon as the wound healed... This made me lose hope in ACV removing my mole and I began concealing the mole with make-up for the next 3 years. I about 5 days ago I tried ACV on my mole again.

This time, I soaked a q-tip with ACV but I did not tape it. I simply pressed it up to the mole for an hour every day and checked it every now and then to make sure I was only burning the mole. The first few days I did not see a real difference because my mole is already black and flat. On the third day the mole started getting rougher and seemed like it was turning into a slight crater. I applied it a few more times that day but it was burning a lot so I decided to stop. The next day it was a rough black scab, and then today I noticed a piece of the scab was falling off. I rubbed the mole with a q-tip (no acv) until the scab fell off and now my mole is gone!!! Incredible!!! :)

I've used ACV for large moles also, I've gotten them flattened out (did like you, fall off, crater, wait to heal), I've still got skin discoloration but the height is all gone. So def. progress, In another month, I will get areas again and hopefully they will be all gone. I'm happy for your success, it helps w/ the determination not to give up.

In regards to using ACV for mole removal. I'm in my 40's and had always had an ugly raised dark mole between my nostril and my lip that was about the size of a pencil eraser. I was always very self conscience about it, but about a year and a half ago, I just couldn't stand it any longer... I was tired of people looking at it and not my face when talking to them. Anyway, I did some research online and found some information where people had used ACV for mole removal. I also heard that it can leave a scar where the mole used to be, but at this point I didn't care, I'd rather have a scar than have to look at that mole one more day.

I went and purchased organic ACV and started using it. People say to scratch around the edge and the top with a needle, but I couldn't do it, it freaked me out too bad. So basically every night before bed, I rubbed petroleum jelly around the edge to protect the skin around the mole, I then soaked a small cotton ball (the same size/diameter as the mole) in ACV and taped it with bandaids and medical tape over the mole. Yes, it does burn alot, but it is tolerable. I also did this during most days. My advice to you is to clean it real good in between applications. Also, don't plan on going anywhere during that week, unless you can hide it under a bandaid or clothing, because it turns black and ugly. They also recommended that you not pull the black scab off the mole, but I couldn't help myself, I did. I don't think it matters one way or another, but maybe there will be less scarring if the scab is left alone. I personally feel that by removing the scab, it helps to remove the mole faster.

Anyway, in a weeks time, the area where the mole was, was completely level with the skin around it, and the mole was gone. At this point you need to stop using the ACV. The skin will still need about another week or so to completely heal, so my advice is to keep it real clean, and keep some antibacterial ointment on it with a bandaid. The area will still be red after a week or so, but that will fade too. I do have a little bit of scarring where the mole used to be, but it's not bad at all. I'm extremely happy with the outcome, I just wish I would have known about this years ago... It would've saved me alot of embarrassment and frustration. Good Luck!

P.S. So far it hasn't tried to grow back. =)

Worked Temporarily

I removed a tiny raised mole on the side of my nose with acv. It worked great, it dried up and scabbed off. It left a light spot on my nose but it did remove the mole. After like a month I realized a tiny dark spot on the area. Will it grow back? Pls reply

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.

Yes!!!!! I registered for this site thanks to all of you who responded to this thread. I am gonna be 25, have had LOTS of moles since I was little... In high school I was so ashamed of my moles that I would wear long sleeves in the heat of the summer (in Vegas) and my hair down to cover the ones on arms and the one by my jaw bone. I had my son at age 21 and started really looking at my skin... The one by my jaw was about the size of a pea, and had started growing hideous hairs. That was the last straw. I talked to every doctor I could but they would not remove them, that's when I found you all!

I started the ACV treatment yesterday, twice a day I dabbed the moles for about 2-3 min (after roughing them up a bit) the stinging sensation I felt was almost welcomed as I was so hoping this would get rid of my moles! So at night I fastened cotton balls that were soaked in ACV to my body with bandaids. Today I woke up and the one that is on my arm (about 1/2 a cm) is completely flat. It is dark almost black and scabs up when I let it get air during the day... Same with the ones on my chest, there are 2 about the size of a pencil eraser! I was in total shock! I could not believe it was working!!! So here I am on night two of the ACV treatment with high hopes that by the end of next week most of em will be gone, including the hideous monstrosity on my jawbone by my left ear...

I really can't thank all of you enough. This is coming from someone who thought there was no hope of ever feeling "normal" to someone who doesn't even care about the scars it will leave as long as the yucky brown moles are gone!!! thank you so much!!

This treatment WORKS!! If you don't have success your not doing it right!! Thank you guys again!!!

Better But With Side Effects

Hi, I have been suffering with a flesh coloured raised mole on my face since I was about 5-6. It was a raised mole inbetween my eyebrows. All of my life I have covered it with my hair and was embarrised to go swimning etc.

I found this site last week as I was thinking of having it cut out. I even paid to go and see a consultant and they wanted £550 pounds to do this but it would leave a scar which I would of accepted as being better than what I had.

Any way I decided to give it a go in secret which is quite hard!!

First I roughed up the mole/lump on my face with a nail file and then put Apple Cider Vinegar on it for about 30 mins. next morning I dabbed it again for about 10 mins and covered it in makeup and then went to work.

On day 3 it started to turn black which scared me a bit but I carried on. I have never left the Apple Cider Vinegar on overnight as it stung to much.

I cannot tell anyone enough amount putting vasaline around the area as I didnt and it has burnt the skin slightly.

Anyway after 5 days I stopped put the Apple Cider Vinegar on as it had turned into a scab and started puttting salve on with silicone in the morning and at night.

The scab came of yesterday but I am left with a pink scar aroung the area which isnt too bad but where the flesh coloured mole was it looks pink but a more darker pink!!!

Is this because this was a deeper area and scab?? than the outside?? as I'm worried that I have now made it worse.

Please can anybody advise I hope this will just fade but a bit slower. Thanks

My story: wart like growth under left eyelid.

Tried all kinds of remedies - nothing worked. Eye Doctor told me it was interfering with tearing process. I would need surgery, no insurance.

Took a lemon and squeezed the juice including the oil from the peel. Swabbed it on the area on the hour for an evening. Next morning the growth peeled off like a grape peel. No scar, no growth - eyelid felt like baby skin. Came up with this myself. The growth had spread over a year and was almost covering my entire lower lid.

There are more remedies than diseases! And always more hope than despair. Keep searchin'

I found this site when I had a kidney stone and love it. The Apple Cider Vinegar for mole removal works so good. I couldnt believe it. I roughed it up put vaseline around the mole then put Apple Cider Vinegar on with a cotton swab and in five days it was gone just a little dry scab so I left it alone and today when I got out of the shower I noticed it was gone I cant believe it the skin looks so good just a little pink im sure in a couple of days it will be back to normal im just putting some antiseptic cream on it. I cant believe all the money doctors want to remove a mole and all you need is a bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar thanks earth clinic.

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

Hi... I recently found this forum and read it thru. I tried ACV on several moles, and two skin tags.

I roughed up each one with a needle then held a soaked q-tip swab against them for 10-15 minutes. A flat mole on my chest was gone in 4 days. The skin tags were gone in a week.

Now I'm treating a huge mole on my neck. It's shrank to less than half it's size and half as high. I can see that it's starting to break up.

* With a swab, I can push in the center, and feel that its caving in.

I also tried using Duct Tape to remove them, but it didn't work for me. Too moist an enviornment to scab over.

I tried taping a cotton ball on the moles, and they always manage to slip and just burn the skin around the moles...

My best observation is that some moles take much longer to kill than others. The big one on my neck has been there at least 50-60 yrs... It's tougher. But it's dying.

The mole on my neck is right where the seat belt harness crosses the neck, and easy to irritate. Thanks everyone for you time and input. ACV has worked wonders.

I started the ACV treatment 4 nights ago. I roughed up my mole (about the size of an eraser--raised as well) with an emory board, not enough to make it bleed, but enough to where it is sore to the touch. Then I used chapstick around the mole to keep that area safe from the ACV. I then applied ACV with a Q-Tip for about 5 mins, then take a piece of a cotton ball soaked in ACV and band-aided it down over night. I did this 2 nights, then I forgot one niht, and did it again last night.

I have no issues regarding the area around my mole being affected or sore.

I do have a very dark scab that is the same size of the mole, but completely flat in the location I have been treating. It is sore to the touch, but I can definitely tell it is working! I have been able to kinda peel a little of the scab, and there is NO brown underneath where the skin has regrown. I can't wait. I will update once it is all gone.

I've had this mole on my stomach as long as I can remember; I can't wait for it to be gone. This week seems like forever, but it is completely worth it! I plan on using this treatment on other moles on my body.

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!

Better But With Side Effects

I tried this technique myself on my mole and it left me with a slightly reddish raised scar (or the remnants of the root of the mole), so be very careful when using this home remedy. Can anyone help me as to what I can do at this stage? It has been almost a year since I removed it. I have applied silicone sheets and petroleum jelly I.E. Vaseline to the area recently and hopefully will see some improved results.

Given my experience, I think you should be very careful with using this type of home remedy. The number of Yea ratings can be a bit misleading and lead you to perform this home remedy straight away. However, I suggest consulting a professional first before doing anything else (and if I had a choice again, I probably would have preferred laser surgery which is a one-off cost and the scarring would be most likely minimal).

You can try rose hip seed oil. The energy is probably blocked in that area as well as places adjacent to the area, that is why it scarred in the first place and is not healing well in the second. rose hip seed oil is fantastic for scarring and will help open up the energy, inducing a faster healing time.

You could massage the area to break up the accumulated collagen :) just a suggestion, I'm no expert. I'm trying this remedy on a mole on my lip, and it broke up into little soft bits and doesn't seem to be wanting to fall off at all. The area around it is very blistered and yellow, and it's been this way for almost a week. I wonder what's going to happen, anyway good luck!

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!

I found this site about a week ago... I am amazed on how many things ACV can be used for. I got a q-tip and dabbed some on one of my moles... I could feel a little tiny stinging sensation.... And noticed that it was starting to change color. I was not fully committed to try it at that moment.. But.. I will on the weekend. Unfortunately, I inherited my moles from my mother... And had a few removed from my face by a doctor... That's how much I was willing to deal with a little scar.. (gotta love a military doctor-they did it for free! ) I really don't want to spend $500 per mole to be removed. I will try the ACV... I have also been taking two spoonfuls twice a day... I will post another response to let everyone know how it went. Thanks to everyone who posts to this website.. It's kinda interesting to see what people are using to cure ailments! Who woulda thought!

Ok. So its been a full week. Last Sat, I sat with a q-tip and soaked and soaked the mole in ACV... Now, its smaller.. And a scab has taken its place. I am waiting for it to fall off. It's definitely smaller. I do have a slight redness around the base of the mole... Which, I am guessing, will diminish in time... I would rather have the redness, than the mole... This stuff works!!!

I'm glad it worked for you. Mine was also red around the base... since I wrote that post the area has now gone back to flesh toned, I barely have to use makeup to cover it.
