I have a mole between my nose and my upper lip.. It is raised. I want someone who can share its experience on using AVC. Does it have any side effect? Does it can remove successfully?
I am using ACV to remove two moles I've had since childhood. One is on my face, the other is on my neck. They were considered beauty marks until they continued to grow. The one on my face began to grow hair... This was the deciding factor to try to remove it. I'm on day 3 and last night it pussed a little. I keep a cotton gauze with Apple Cider Vinegar on it while I use vaseline on the surrounding area. Wish me luck I will keep updates posted.

First of all, I've been using ACV for a while now as a facial toner after cleansing (diluted), in the laundry to soften towels and sweatshirts, etc. So when I got online to do some research for mole removal home remedies and found that ACV could help me, I was thrilled. I immediately went into the bathroom and roughed up a "pencil-eraser sized" raised mole I've had on my stomach that's made me incredible uncomfortable for years. I taped on an ACV-soaked piece of cotton. Did this several times, over and over again, and now, two-three weeks later, my mole is scabby but not gone. It got very sensitive to touch so I called off the ACV regimen, but started on another one. This one is located on my chin. I roughed it up very very gently because of the sensitive area, and bandaged on a piece of mole-sized cotton soaked in ACV. Wore that overnight. I dabbed it with an ACV-soaked cotton swab daily, while bandaging it with ACV-soaked cotton every night. I can't tell you the exact amount of time, but within probably a week, week and a half, my mole was a scab that was beginning to heal. Stupid me began to pick at it, not out of impatience but curiosity, I suppose, "IS THIS SCAB MY MOLE AND WHAT IS UNDERNEATH! ?" So naturally, it bled and left another scab. The scab since has come off and left me with a pretty smooth little scar which I suspect will fade within the year. My fiance couldn't believe it, and mentioned that I do the mole (flesh-colored, somewhat raised, smaller) on my nose. This one has always bothered me and has gotten more and more noticeable over time as had the one on my chin. When I wore make-up it looked as if I ALWAYS had a pimple on my nose--VERY sad since my skin has cleared up so beautifully since high school. So I couldn't help but rough it up just a bit, maybe ten seconds with the smoother side of an Emery board. I dabbed it with an ACV-soaked cotton swab several times a day, but for my first application (and once every couple of days), I held the cotton swab in place for as long as my arm would let me. For all moles tested, they turned white and then scabbed, etc.
I decided one night to sleep with a very tiny piece of ACV-soaked cotton bandaged on my nose. I began treatment on that mole probably 5 days ago and last night the last bit of scab fell off during my once-weekly exfoliation. I went up to my fiance and said "LOOK AT MY NOSE!! " and he was nearly speechless, couldn't believe that it was gone. I now have a very very small little crater with a little red scab, about the size of a ballpoint. This I feel assured will go away. The crater itself may remain just a little bit but I can tell you, IT'S BETTER THAN LOOKING LIKE I HAVE A PIMPLE ON MY NOSE ALL THE TIME!! :)
I want to begin treatment on other moles but want to see a doctor about a few of them first, they are a bit suspicious and potentially pre-cancerous because of their shapes, colors, etc. I am also going to restart ACV therapy on the first mole on my stomach now that the sensitivity and irritation has subsided. I am probably going to wear an ACV-soaked cotton ball taped to the area every other night and apply ACV 2-3x during the day. If anyone wants their moles gone without a large expense, try this! ACV does wonders for your body, inside and out, and also around the house. Love it!!
Ive been using ACV on two raised moles on my face. I began treating them on monday night. I scratched them with a needle, covered the surrounding skin with vaseline, then soaked a cotton ball in ACV and taped one to each mole overnight. When I woke up, I removed the cotton balls and noticed they had both begun turning black and had got flatter. During the day on tuesday, I scratched both moles again with a needle and massaged ACV on them (using a cotton bud) for about a minute. (i did this 4 times). I then repeated the overnight process (did this for 3 nights)
It is now thursday night and my moles have shrunk, are black and are scabbing slightly. When I went to apply more ACV, the burning pain was too much and I decided to leave it for tonight. Instead I massaged them with warm water and a cotton bud and they started scabbing over. I dont think they are ready to fall off yet though. Anyway, I decided to apply tea tree oil to my moles before going to bed tonight, in hope that this will help them heal, dry up and scab off finaly. Was I right to apply tea tree oil or will this just make it worse? also, I have been avoiding leaving the house because they look quite awful right now, what can I do to make these scabs fall off asap!?
Whatup? The apple cider vinegar didn't work on my moles. I tried to file the flat moles a little and then put on some Apple Cider Vinegar and a bandage a few times a day. After a week, my mole is still there and I got an allergic rash on both arms for almost two weeks now. I have no idea in heck if this related o_o
I read on this site about using ACV for moles. I had a mole under my bra-line that formed in my late 20's after a bad sunburn. It was tiny for years then slowly grew to a bigger size. Recently it got so swollen it was very embarassing and started to look like a 3rd nipple! I had to do something but I hate doctors, so no way I was getting it surgically removed. I was scared to use ACV at first but finally I had to try it. I roughed up the mole using a pumice stone (this took bravery). Then I tore apart a cotton ball to make a piece that would just cover the mole, and soaked it with ACV. I used band-aids to tape it on. I put on a fresh one every night and kept it on until my next shower. The mole would form a crust/scab on top that would flake off and sometimes in the shower I would lose a whole layer of the mole! I was amazed and kept at it. It took at least 3 weeks and now I have a flat pink spot where the mole was. The ACV did burn sometimes, I won't lie. I'm sure this would freak out some people but I just tried to stay brave. I did not have to use any vaseline around the mole on the healthy skin like some people report doing. I think the ACV only soaks into skin that is broken, thus the roughing up the mole first with pumice stone.
I am amazed, and so is my husband. He wanted me to get it surgically removed! I used organic ACV with the mother.

Hi I have recently had 4 raised moles on my head frozen with Liquid Nitrogen and after 2 treatments the moles have not been touched. The dermatologist said the moles are safe to remove and that I may need 4-5 treatments. The problem is the liquid nitrogen treatment also freezes the skin around the moles and causes blisters - not very nice on your head going to work :-(
I come accross this forum yesterday and cannot believe the success people have had with ACV. I started treating 1 small raised mole on my stomach yesterday as a test and all seems to be going well.
I have a question I start a new job in 10 Days time and want to know if I start treating the moles on my head now will they be gone / reduced and healed in 10 days as I do not really want to start a new job with 4 big lesions on my head.
I really hope someone has the time to answer and all help will be greatfully received please reply to post or email me.

I can't believe after all these years (58) I actually found a site where I can use information to get rid of this mole that has been on the tip of my nostril forever! You may understand how much I detested it, and the frustration I felt not having a way to remove it! I found this site yesterday, and last night began applying the vinegar and vaseline! It's a raised mole, about the size of a split pea.... But it feels huge! Lol
It immediately started turning white, and puffing up. The bottom half became black.... Which sounds like what it's supposed to be doing. I used a needle and emery board to roughen it up, and applied chap stick and vaseline to the surrounding skin. Because of it's location, I cannot bandage it... Nothing will stick, so I'll have to do it the hard way.... Applying ACV constantly with a q-tip. It seems to be working, and I feel like I have a new lease on life!
I have gotten really bad skin with wrinkles and jowl lines in the last few years, due to stress and lack of care. I am on a quest to regain my appearance as much as possible, and am using all avenues to secure it! I am applying wrinkle remover, moisturizing, and taking vitamins. I cannot afford a face lift... So started using a book and dvd called "Facial Fitness" to remove the wrinkes and tighten the skin. I even found a free hypnosis download called "Turning Back Time" to make myself look better! I will NOT go down without a fight! Time to get myself put back together in a presentable and pleasing way! Will keep you posted on the mole removal.... It was an added bonus to my new quest, and will be forever grateful for this site!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Mole Removal
Oh man, I can't even begin to describe how happy I am right now! Im 17 and have had a flat mole on my cheek since I was born. Everyone called it a "beauty mark" but I didn't find it appealing at all. It was impossible to convince my parents to remove but I finally got them to give in about this apple cider vinegar idea. Here's what I did:
I started on a wednesday night by roughing up my mole with an emory board (no more than 1 minute ). I surrounding the area around the mole with vaseline for no scarring. Dunked a cotton ball in the Apple Cider Vinegar and taped it on the mole for the night. Thursday I applied the Apple Cider Vinegar 3 times during the day (only dabbing the mole with a Apple Cider Vinegar cover Q-tip) and then at night again(cotton ball and tape). Friday I applied the Apple Cider Vinegar 2 times during the day and then at night. Saturday was one time in the day and then at night. Sunday I woke up to take a shower in the morning and when I got out, IT WAS GONE.
I highly recommend this technique. It is very painless, and it doesn't effect your daily life. In my 4 days I went to my soccer practices, the gym, and out shopping. You may get a couple more stares during the process because it can get pretty ugly, but its worth it in the long run :)
I was so excited when I came across this info. I tried ACV on 5 facial moles and by the 3rd day they were decreasing in size and drying up, by day 4 they all were flaking off. By day 5 all were gone, at each site I have a small pink area, but the pink areas are healthy looking. I started putting Silverderm which is desigated for burn tissue, but I alternate it with pure coco butter which has the healing and returning complexion to it's original shades. I am very very pleased. I took great care during this process to coat the healthy skin around the moles with thick coats of vasaline. It is very IMPORTANT to use cotton ball only the size of the mole. I saoked Q tips and pulled the soaked cotton off the q tip to ensure only the moles were exposed to the ACV. I am so pleased and feel like not only are my moles gone but the "roots" were also destroyed therefore they will not grow back.
For now I can place a little make up when I am out and about til my natural color returns. I feel so much better, I wish I could post before-after pics. I had them removed before professionally and they came back. I think the lasered them. SO good look, try on one in a area before doing them all. My five were in my face... So I just went for it!!!!! Good luck to all..... Ms. J

Better But With Side Effects
Background info: A few years ago I was able to successfully remove a wart on my pinky finger with Raw Organic ACV. I've had a raised mole the size of a pencil eraser behind my ear my entire life. I decided to try to remove it using the same method I'd previously used on my wart. I've been applying ACV to a cotton ball and securing it over the mole with a bandaid overnight. Although the ACV is working on the mole (it's a lot smaller, black, and flat against the skin - I feel with a few more treatments it will be gone), the skin around the mole (an area about the size of a 50 cent piece) is very red and irritated. There are some areas within the red patch (very small in size) that are scabbed over and almost look like little ulcers. Also, the lymph node under my ear is a tad swollen and tender to the touch. I typically do not have sensitive skin and have never experienced a reaction like this to ACV. For now, I plan on treating the area with Aloe Vera gel and Vitamin E oil and only applying ACV to the mole with a cotton swab so the other areas do not get further irritated.
1. Has anyone else experienced this sort of reaction to ACV?
2. Am I correct in thinking Aloe Vera gel and Vitamin E oil will soothe the area or are there better solutions?
3. Could it be that the ACV was eating away heathly skin while working on the mole?
Thanks in advance for your help earthclinic!
Alright, Im omar From Cairo Egypt.. Since I was 10 Ive been living with a mole on my chin the size of a pencil earaser. 1 year ago I tried applying ACV on it including saftey precautions, It made a light scab on the surface of it. I started picking at it and the scab came off, so did the mole but it kept bleeding. 2 days later I could see the mole growing back and it has actually grown bigger, not so big but slightly bigger from the original size. I was just curious. If I use the ACV again, will my Mole Grow back again? Please Email me or reply . Riva_alexei(at)hotmail(dot)com

Apple Cider Vinegar for Moles
I'm currently using ACV to get rid of a slightly raised mole. When I began this treatment, I had already been (unsuccessfully) trying to get rid of the mole with a sulfur-based mask, so a layer of skin had peeled away from the center of the mole to begin with due to the exfoliation I did alongside this. I've been using the ACV method for about one week now (applying it to a piece of folded paper towel and keeping that in place with a bandaid). The middle part (where a layer of it had already worn away from the previous treatment) is continuing to wear away even more and become deeper. The mole seems to be peeling off in layers and these areas are kind of... soft, and when moistened with the ACV they turn lighter in colour.
Does it sound like it's working? If so, how long could I expect this to take? I've just noticed that many other people have experienced effects such as the mole hardening into a black scab and simply falling off, whereas I've experienced only a bit of scabbing and a seemingly more gradual removal process.
Also, as the surface of the mole was damaged when I began this treatment, and continues to be like this as I am peeling at parts of it, the ACV stings a bit when I reapply it. This subsides after a few moments. Is that okay, or should I stop the treatment and let the skin heal before continuing? I know some have successfully removed a mole quickly by scouring its surface, but I'm just weary of overdoing this. I am aware that it may result in a scar... not too worried about that though, as I'd rather have a scar than this mole.
Any responses to my queries wold be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Okay, so I have had a protruding mole since I was about 4-6 in/on my belly button. I have tried getting it frozen off before. The first time I got it frozen it took most of it off, I thought it was eventually going to go away because it was so small. Over the years it started to grow back but I was to scared to go back because of the pain. (I'm a big sissy about that stuff) Over the summer I had it frozen again. It still has not gone away and is starting to grow back. I'm wondering if the ACV remedy would work for me? What should I do?

Apple cider vinegar is pretty cool stuff. It works best on warts. I used it to cure my genital warts in just 2 days. And I tested it for mole removal on one mole that is hidden pretty well behind my jaw-line. Like testing the color-fastness of your closet carpet before you clean the stain in your living room. I scratched it with a sterile needle and applied the vinegar with a napkin for about an hour (I used regular white vinegar as I did with the warts) By the next morning it was blistered a bit and I applied the vinegar twice throughout the day... Just dabbing it on. And then again for about half an hour at night. I rescratched the surface at night worrying that I didn't get it thoroughly enough the first night which took the entire surface of the mole off! This was disturbing but I continued with the vinegar. I stopped applying it for such a long period of time and just dabbed the vinegar on the surface 4 or 5 times a day. This is the 4th day and the mole is totally scabbed over and I'm pretty sure it's ready to be left alone. I'm treating it with TeaTree Oil to aid in the healing process and as long as it doesn't scar too much I'm going to continue removing all these moles.
