Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil:
Have used the described protocol several times now on small BCCs, for 7 days of treatment. It's worked each time.
To reduce the pain, try earthing:
- Attach an earthing pad to the skin near the treatment area. or put the treated body part on an earthing pad.
For earthing equipment and how to earth: https://betterearthing.com.au/
- Make sure that the contact of your skin with the earthing pad is firm.
E.g. when treating your left shin, lie on your left side with the left leg on the earthing pad and put your right leg onto your left leg for extra weight (the weight of the left leg on the earthing pad by itself wasn't enough for me to take the pain away).
I discovered this by chance. It's cut down half an hour of intense sting from ACV to just 5 minutes, and helped me with the baking soda and H2O2 treatments, too.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
Cured 3 BCC with ACV and baking soda with coconut oil.
The first time I removed my bcc, I used ACV soaked in a cotton ball and taped it to my BCC every night. After a few days it turned red and after about a month I was BCC free.
The second time I removed my bcc, it was close to my eyes, so I used baking soda with coconut oil 1 tbsp each mixed and made a paste and applied it to the area. After about 2 weeks I was bcc free. I had to deal with scabbing and redness but after that I'm bcc free.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda, Peroxide
I'm a 60 year young, white female, 130 pounds, living in the U.S.A., with basal cell carcinoma on the right side of my nose. A blackhead is what I thought it was and had gone to have a different non bcc spot checked on my left cheek. Biopsy was July 28,2015.
I started August 4th using organic apple cider vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as a paste, alternating with fresh cut aloe vera (using the inside of the leaf) at night...securing either solution with a band aide. My nose looks horrible, due to the fact of more bcc there than what I'd hoped for. The area is puffy, red and just really looks bad. I believe I had read where it will get worse before it gets better. I'd love to post pictures of this process for two reasons, informative and feedback. Thank you for allowing me to join this discussion.
I am treating my husband's bcc. It was cut out and came back. This is our third week of baking soda covered with a moist bandage. It is doing it's thing. It is quite large. And, very painful for him. The outer skin is hardened but turning a clear color. I think this might take a long time to clear up. Wanted to join the conversation as someone who understands as he is suffering quite a bit due to the treatment which made me a little concerned if we need to see a doctor.
However, to kill it completely I think personally this is the way to go. We haven't tried hydrogen peroxide because he was dead against it. So, I have only used baking soda. Praying we come through this as it is kind of gross. He has two areas on his back that look like bullet or arrow wounds. I am not kidding. I feel for him and have see his bright personality go into the depths of humility really fast as the roots of this cancer is being extracted and destroyed. What a journey! Thanks for letting me sob!! :)
Cancer feeds on sugar. Maybe you should thing about eliminating processed sugar to help speed up the healing process!
Eva, try the baking soda with a bit of coconut oil.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda, Vitamin C
I had my first basal cell on my chest which a dr cut out and left a big scar. It came back so I used apple cider vinegar to clean the area and allowed it to sit on the basal cell which at times burned but nothing intolerable. I then mixed baking soda, vitamin c crystals and a little water to dissolve the crystals. The site grew into a half heart shape, turned black, crusted, and eventually closed in about 3 weeks. My husband made me go for a biopsy because he doesn't believe in my "witch doctoring" as he calls it. Biopsy clear ðŸ˜Š.
I got another one above my lip and along my hairline. I treated them the same and again my husband made me biopsy. All clear! I told him I healed 3 so I will not biopsy any more because it is 2 cuts, 1 to diagnose and 1 to prove to him it is clear. He is very cautious because he had one on his back that required mohrs surgery so he couldn't believe I was able to cure my own. He then got another one on his back and gave me the opportunity to "Witch doctor" on him. It took about 2 months to cure his simply because he would vascilate between whether he believed it would work or not but I convinced him to at least let me try before his appointment and now it is all clear. ðŸ˜Š
IF you use the treatment faithful 2 times a day, it should honestly not take more than 2-3 weeks to clear up but I know depending on location, you can't walk around with a white paste.
I was recently dx with BCC above my upper lip and nose. I have no problem walking around with white paste on my face and no one even seems to notice. So don't let vanity get in the way of healing. Your health is more important.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide
Aloha, I have a very large bcc on my forehead , I was going to have MOHS, I decided to wait 4 months because I have a large event happening and I did not want a 4 to 5 inch scar on my face at that time. A friend from my job told me about apple cider vinegar and peroxide. I have to say...it is working.
Now this is what I know ....from my experience
This is what I am doing
UNDERSTAND THIS IF YOU HAVE A CRATER LOOKING BCC THERE ARE ROOTS AROUND IT AS WELL...YOU CAN NOT SEE THEM ... BUT THEY ARE LURKING BENEATH YOUR SKIN.
I started with the apple cider viniger, slept with a cotton ball loaded with viniger on my forehead.
Dabbed peroxide on it thu the day many times and alternate with the vinegar.
Not only do I put it on the crater itself, but around the area about two inches.
I have been doing this since July 16, 2015
THIS IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED:
The large crater itself turned white, also bits keep coming out, another bcc appeared above the first one, this second one surfaced and is dying, around these bcc several small ones appeared, they are the roots. It looked like small dots at first..then came to the surface showing itself. The peroxide kills it because it dries it out, it cannot live, the apple cider viniger also kills it and soothes the skin.
I found that using the combo as much as possible works ...I sit and watch tv with a plastic cup and Qtip dabbing the peroxide on. I fan it to dry and add some more peroxide , 9 bcc have appeard and are dying off, just think how big of a scar I would have had if I did go for the MOHS
Depending on how long and deep the bcc is you may have a small scar, but better than a big one or having your eyes look weird because of the pull of the skin to repair your face.
I have basal carcinoma on my top lip close to nose hole, I have been swabbing with Peroxide & Apple Cider Vinegar after which I applied coconut oil mixed with Baking Soda, the carcinoma is very sore but my main concern is that in only a week it appears to have grown rather than decreased.
What should I do?
Hi Denise, often the lesion will look bigger because it will get inflamed and swell. If this is the case, it should get smaller with time. It's my belief that the cancer cells get the signal to die when they are treated and then the body has to work to get rid of all the dead cells. so the lesion swells up with lymph and white blood cells, etc. It is normal for it to look worse before it gets better.
Thank you for your encouraging words, I am persevering, I have been applying the peroxide every day along with ACV at various times, at night I apply vit C powder mixed with Coconut Oil or Vitamin E Oil, in the morning there is a often a bloody looking discharge I clean that up with Peroxide which stings for a few minutes. When should I stop the treatment?

What grade of H202 should I buy? And one of my BCC's is very close to my eye. No problems with the Apple Cider Or Bi Carb, but is there any concerns using the H202 around my eye?
Hi. Thanks for sharing your story. How is your bcc now? Did it completely go away? I have a small one on my eyelid and did try Apple Cider Vinegar but it kept pussing and no healing. I'm now using CBD oil and it seems to be drying out and has 2 raised bumps around the area of the 3 mm biopsy. I'm hoping this will work because the idea of having my eyelid cut out is very scary!
(New London, Ct)
It might not be a bad thing to see it grow larger when you start using the topical treatments [peroxide, apple cider vinegar, iodine, and I would add TEA TREE OIL as an option] - these irritate the cancer cells, which is what we want. The ointments might also be irritating the healthy tissues, but they are not being killed like the cancer is.
But yes, it could be cause for concern. Mine got a bit painful, but that is okay in this case. Use your intuition, talk to your skin, ask and await an answer [this is difficult to teach].
Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide
I was diagnosed with BCC August 2013 via biopsy of pearly bump on upper forehead. Dermo DR recommended Mohs surgery ASAP. The biopsy removed half of the bump, I still had a small bump remaining after biopsy scar cured. I said 'wait, I'm going backpacking for 2 weeks - not a good time to be out in the woods with stitches. And 2 - what's the cost as I have a $5k deductible' (he said that I would probably use it up). After my trip, I found EC and read all the info.
Decided on hydrogen peroxide (standard 3%) applied 2x daily with strong scrub using a peroxide-soaked q-tip for one month, starting Nov. 2013. It stung but I would not say 'painful'. Small bump area was irritated (YES, peroxide is doing its thing). Eventually saw significant reduction in size of remaining bump but also no more signs of irritation.
Then I moved on to organic Apple Cider Vinegar Treatment using same 2x/day application with q-tip. this did not have same sting but caused a more general red rash area across my forehead but I did this for almost a month as well.
In both Treatment modes I left the area open (no bandages). In Jan. 2014 I returned to peroxide Treatment but there didn't seem to be any reaction thus stopped.
Today Feb. 4, 2014 I visited a NEW Dermo DR asking for a full skin scan (I'm 50 YO female, fair-haired, fair-skinned caucasian with lots of hours outdoors). NEW DR gave me full exam and declared that there were no concerns with my skin (any of it). I then told NEW DR of BCC Dx in August.... he rubbed my forehead with alcohol-soaked gauze and examined thru his 10x polar-light magnifier and declared 'yes, he could see a small pink bump (MINISCULE) in the scar tissue. and then he 'lawyered' up and agreed that the 'STANDARD of CARE' is Moh's surgery for this.
After he left, his assistant (who was there for the whole thing) said that I could wait until I got medicare insurance to cover the cost of surgery. So, I will NOT be getting Moh's surgery, I will be monitoring my skin for pearly bumps and other strange things. For pearly bumps I will invoke the peroxide Treatment (seemed more effective and makes sense when I think of my mom putting it on cuts and scrapes when I was a kid-'get rid of the bad stuff'); for other things I will go back to NEW DR for exam and Diagnosis.
I have had MOHS twice on my face. I can absoluately say I will not have MOHS again unless I have insurance and the skin cancer is NOT on my face. My cancer was basal cell. One spot (pearly) on my line of my upper lip and one on my nose on the side. I now have a misshappen nose and awful scar on lip with numbness on my lip even after 6 years. I have also heard that MOHS can stir up the cancer cells and then they sprout up in new places. I now have a slightly raised bump on tip of my nose and no way will I have MOHS again. The face is too vulnerable a place and too much scarring with MOHS. My friend had MOHS on her lip and the cancer came back within five years. Those MOHS surgeon run you in and out of their offices like cattle making bookoo bucks at your expense. I am going to try the eggplant cream -120 bucks a tube but better than $5,000 MOHS.

Recommend you research the Egg Plant Ointment that is for sale on the internet from Great Britain. It worked for me . Just Google Egg Plant Cancer treatment and you will get there.
======= OLE ROBERT HENRY============
It has been a year since my original post and thought I'd give an update on my status. The original bump on my forehead remains NOTHING but the scar from the biopsy - the remaining 'half-bump' has been gone since before I went to 2nd dermo DR. In March 2014 I realized that a 'bump' on my right cheek was not just a pimple. I applied the peroxide Tx for a month but it didn't seem to do much, then I applied the ACV (apple cider vinegar) Tx sporadically for a month and it didn't really do anything either. I got busy with summer fun and forgot about it. Since late winter to now I've been doing a mix between peroxide and ACV Tx and today I feel I've finally gotten somewhere because the area opened and bled without my coaxing (no real squeezing or scratching). Now I'm applying ACV Tx frequently to really get at the thing (same 'scrubbing wet q-tip' thing). In summary - I think I've learned that WHERE you get the BCC impacts how easy it is to cure. My forehead is thin skin and things progressed in a reasonable timeframe; this new 'bump' on my cheek is in the fleshy/puffy area and I think that is what is making it harder to cure - but I think I've had a literal 'break through' today.
for sure: no MOHs for me!
Veronica: this is late - but I use either peroxide OR apple cider vinegar.
all: I'm not sure that MOHs or peroxide or ACV Tx will cause further episodes. I believe that once we get it - we are prone to get it again. lucky thing is - it is slow growing.... Regarding eggplant cream and questionable websites - I think you're dealing with snake oil sales-sites - I prefer to stick to the basics. EC does not like 'naming names' but the ACV that I use starts with 'b' and is headquartered in California.
How often should I apply peroxide & ACV to my Basal Cell Carcinoma? Do I apply on alternate days?
And at what stage should I apply the Vit C & coconut oil paste? The cell looks enlarged and the crater bigger, it gets very sore after applying Vit C paste and stings & has a discharge. Please advise me.
I am a 63 year old male, this is my 1st post here. I have had a small scab slightly above and at the end of my right eyebrow for about 3 or 4 months. The scab had some raised tissue surrounding the scab. My 1st thought was BCC, so I started to look for alternative treatment since even my doctor said nothing about it while I was having a general checkup a few months back. I came across this web site and decided to try the H2O2 and ACV treatments.
On the 21st of august I started to apply 3% H2O2 to the area with a Q-tip. I was very careful to only apply H2O2 to the scab and raised tissue area. I would apply H2O2 every hour and the H2O2 created a small depressed area in the skin about 3/8in in diameter all the scab was removed as well as the raised tissue that surrounded the scab.
I then applied a paste of baking soda and allowed it to dry. I covered the soda with a small band-aid. The area was very pink and the applications did sting a little. for the next 2 days I would apply H2O2 3 or 4 times a day, covering the area with baking soda and a band-aid.
On the 4 day I decided to intoduce ACV to the white scab that was about 3/8in diameter. The ACV turned the area black and apeared to dissolve part of the blackened area. I continued to apply ACV every cpl of hours on days 4 thru 6. After the dark scab was completely removed, I then kept applying baking soda paste on days 4,5,6,7,8
The baking soda seemed to assist with generating pink normal skin cells. On days 9 and 10 I left the area open to promote healing with the addition of a small amount of ointment to assist the healing process.
It is now day 11 and the 3/8in area is still slightly depressed but no scab exists or any raised tissue that formally surrounded the scab area. I do keep the 3/8in area covered with a very small band-aid and a tiny bit of ointment to keep the area soft. I am very encouraged by these results in only 11 days. There is still a slight depression of the 3/8in area but I am optimistic that this will slowly return to normal appearance in time.
I will continue to report any changes to the area that has been treated.

I use three things. Baking Soda with coconut oil, Peroxide, and raw Apple Cider Vinegar. I then put Vit. E on the area. First Peroxide to kill the cancer, ACV to help reverse the cells from bad to good, then Baking Soda and Coconut oil to sooth the skin. I sleep with Vit. E on it at night for the scaring. Peroxide once a day at night and ACV twice a day, morning and night, the baking soda becomes a paste and I leave it on at night after the first two applications (proxy./ACV). And I PRAY!
When the wound is completely healed, you should be clear of it. If it comes back then do it again and remember not to let it dry out so that your body can expel all the bad cells. Best of luck.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Ketogenic Diet
I had a small BCC (basal cell carcinoma) on the bridge of my nose for 5 years. It looked like a small brown scab. It would just stay there for months, unless I pealed it off ... in which case it would bleed and form a new scab. Nothing would take it away, until I began trying apple cider vinegar. I dipped a small, flat, cotton oval pad (the kind used to remove makeup) into apple cider vinegar, and I placed the pad on the bridge of my nose. I left the soaked pad on my nose for 20 minutes a day. Slowly, the small scab-looking BCC started to fade, leaving a bumpy, pink lesion underneath.
At about the 4th week of treatment, the pink lesion seemed to suddenly become wider. I was frightened, until I read that BCC's can actually run deeper and wider than their surface appearance: BCC's can have deeper tentacle-like structures underneath their surface. Unless all of these "tentacles" of the BCC are removed, the cancer will grow back. So I continued applying the ACV-soaked pads to the bridge of my nose.
By the 7th week of treatment, the bumpy pink lesion flattened out. By then it looked like flat new skin had completely replaced the BCC. Nevertheless, I continued another week of treatment. It looked like the BCC was actually gone, after only 8 weeks! Since then, I have not applied apple cider vinegar to the area, and the BCC has never returned!
Update: May 9, 2017
Although the apple cider vinegar seemed to completely get rid of my BCC, it started to regrow very slowly like a scab three months later (Jan 2017). This time, I did not retreat the BCC with apple cider vinegar. I just ignored it and went on with my life, since it was still very small. However, by April, I decided to try a different treatment. Since I had read that cancers feed off sugar, I began a ketogenic diet (no sugar and no carbs) to try and see if I could starve out the cancer. Within a week, the BCC started to shrink, and within a month the BCC was completely gone! So I have decided to remain on the ketogenic diet for the rest of this summer, just to make sure the cancer does not return. Meanwhile, I have discovered another benefit of the ketogenic diet ... my psoriasis has cleared up!
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
Greeting from Australia and my heartfelt thanks to those who were willing to share their experience of using natural treatment for basal cell carcinoma. Very happy to add my experience of using VCO/BS during the day and ACV morning and night. This is my story so far. 22 years ago I had 2 bcc's removed from my face (eyelid and chin). At the same time I was advised to also remove some precancerous tissue from my eyebrows and just above it. I decided against that. Lately I had noticed many small red blobs appearing on my forehead and saw dermatologist who immediately diagnosed spreading bcc's. Advised chemo/radiation with possible surgery backup. I'm female, aged 75 and all through my life I have used natural remedies and not taking any pharma drugs. After doing a lot of research, including checking out feedback from earth clinic contributors, I decided for treatment with paste of Virgin Coconut Oil and Baking Soda half/half during the day, and a compress of half strength Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) am and pm for an hour. Oh my, after first application the extent of BCC spread and became clear. From my left brow it had spread all over my forehead and down to both my temples. Also a spot on the bridge of my nose. The stinging pain was intense, almost unbearable and this continued for about a week. I'm on day 8 now and still applying twice a day, the VCO and BS, and the pain has decreased somewhat, at least it is more tolerable. Initially my face was very inflamed and swollen and looked terribly alarming to my kids, who are not into natural therapies and wanted to take me to emergency. By day 4 my skin had a sandy feel to it and I realised this was the early beginning of crust forming. At no time did my skin bleed and right now I see how the outer edges are slowly diminishing. When I apply half strength ACV compress I need to protect my eyes with 3 layers of cotton pads to prevent ACV leaking into my eyes and for the same reason I am not able to treat my nose with acv. I realise that it may take another couple of weeks to know how successful or not this treatment has been. I hope that my sharing can assist others in making their decisions. Wishing good health to you all.

HI LODI L.,,, being from Australia, I would assume you are aware of Curaderm. If not research.
Thanks ORH, and yes I have done my research on Curaderm and decided against it because the affected area is so large and I need to be ever so careful around my eyes. Will first see how this works, I doubt that I can get all of it in only one treatment series, maybe for spot treatment later on I will reconsider again. Thanks for your reply.

LODI L,,,,,,,,,,,, youngun, the farmers in Australia cured their cow's eye cancer with the the Devil's fruit (eggplant) That's how Curaderm got started. Nope, you do exactly what you think is needed. ====ORH====
Update on my post of 2/2/2019 re basal cell carcinoma.
It is now 21 month post above treatment and my forehead is mostly free of spots until I get to my hairline, both top and side of temples where I was not able to apply ACV part of this routine. My thinking is that the treatment was effective, but just out of interest and 2 spots possibly still there, I'm planning to repeat it next week to see if my skin reacts differently. If there is still evidence of BCC I would not do this treatment again but would try Curaderm.
I applied VCO/BS (Virgin Coconut Oil/Baking Soda) combination 2x daily all over my forehead up to my hairline and for the first few days treatment was very painful. Immediately after first application skin looked terribly red and inflamed. Washed it off before retiring and applied 1/2 strength ACV dressing for 1-2 hours (stings considerably for a while) before sleep and repeated this first thing in the morning before applying again VCO/BS.
Continued this treatment for about 3 (maybe 4) weeks. Occasionally applied fresh aloe vera to support healing. Pain subsided at end of first week and slowly over time redness and inflammatory-look disappeared too. The one spot on bridge of my nose was not treated with ACV but has also disappeared. A friend (84) who was diagnosed with BCC treated it with colloidal silver, that she makes herself, and that was also successful.
Thanks to all of you who are sharing experiences and blessings of good health to all.

Reply to Terrie (re:BCC 07/15/2019).
Just sent an update on my treatment.
To answer your question, I left OCV/BS on for most of the day. Made a paste of about half each initially and spread it over my forehead after ACV dressing came off. When face gets hot and oil begins to melt somewhat I used tissues to blot my face. Need to find balance to have just enough VCO to be able to spread BS without starting to drip. Midday I would with great delight wash it all off, applied some aloe vera gel or echinacea cream to give my skin some rest and then applied VCO/BS again and left it on till bedtime. Hope this helps.
Blessings of good health to you.
What ratio do you use with coconut oil bicarb?
I do this, making a thick paste so it does not melt all over, I do not have pain or stinging.. I add a bandage to secure it.
How long do you suggest it takes to have an effect so that I know something is at work?
What does ACV mean and the other abbreviations you are using?
Have you tried anything else, how long did you have these before you acted upon it?
Thank you for sharing ure experience.
EC: ACV - Apple Cider Vinegar
VCO - Virgin Coconut Oil
BS - Baking Soda
Reply to Marcelle (BCC 10/30/2020) I just updated Earthclinic re my experience and that answered some of your questions. I am unable to answer your question how long to persist with this treatment approach. I continued for 3, possibly 4 weeks just to make sure I gave it the best shot. Blessings of good health to you.
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
I had a scab on my scalp that was 12mm in diameter and very slowly getting bigger. My doctor referred me to a surgeon who did a punch biopsy. The results showed that it was BCC and the surgeon said that I would need surgical removal fairly soon. The wait for an appointment to see a surgeon for an evaluation was two months so that made it easy to decide to use an alternative treatment. Although I had Black Salve available, it felt too extreme to use on the thin flesh of my scalp so I chose instead to apply baking soda and coconut oil once a day, thanks to all the Earth Clinic reports.
After a week, it got a bit irritated with some small amounts of blood expressed. At that point, I cut away the hair in the area and started applying a Band-Aid to keep it from my pillow when I slept. In the shower every day I washed my hair normally and then applied pHisohex anti-bacterial face wash as an antiseptic and then rinsed that as well.
After eight weeks the bleeding stopped and signs of the BCC were disappearing. I kept applying the mix for four more weeks just in case. Now the hair is growing back well although it's a little lighter and the only way I can tell where it was it is a slight dent in my scalp. I stopped six weeks ago. In a follow-up visit to my doctor I had to show him twice where the BCC used to be.
FYI, I consulted three more surgeons who all said it needed to be cut out and one even said I'd need a skin graft (where no hair would grow) to cover the wound. At that point the (free) surgery wouldn't actually be available for another three months as I am a public patient with a low time-priority issue. None of them would discuss my self-treatment for legal reasons.
In retrospect, I'd try the Black Salve as a quicker treatment and possibly more certain cure. Thank you EARTHCLINIC!
As a follow up, I think the punch biopsy took a core out of the BCC which helped the VCO/BS do its work more quickly. It was also easier to apply as it could easily remain on the top my head. Photo record available. Still no recurrence after 3 years. Thank you EC and all your contributors!
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
I had a bcc on my scalp. Had surgery but it came back with a leison that grew larger. I researched and found a lady who had cured her mother's bcc in the same spot as mine with baking soda and coconut oil. She gave a pictorial ongoing account so I tried it and put it on every day and cleaned it at night. It was tender but gradually came off a little at a time. After several weeks the last part came off today. My scalp is red but I am going to put aloe vera on it. Now I'm hoping my hair will grow back there. Not sure if there is any of it remaining under my scalp but guess I'll find out.
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
I started treatment of BCC on my chest yesterday with baking soda and coconut oil. Before the treatment I had only two small visible lesions. Now my chest is full of "new" visible "spots". Is it this normal reaction to the treatment? Thanks, Vessna
Vessna, the mixture might be pulling hidden ones to the surface. Which is a good thing in my book.
Vessna, that is perfectly normal. The lesion will probably get inflamed and may pus up or bleed slightly. Then over time it will heal normally. Just keep applying the paste.
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
I was just diagnosed with basal cell on the tip of my nose. I used a paste of coconut oil and baking soda (1 tsp of each) as often as I could. I also first swabbed the area with apple cider vinegar. I am happy to say after about 6 weeks, I am free of any cancer on my nose. It works and looks completely normal.
Hi! I was just recently diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma as well and I saw your post and I have been using the baking soda and coconut oil. What happened when you used it? Mine has a scab on it that's hollow and it has a ring around that looks like it's trying to heal. It's flaky after putting the paste on. Is this normal?
Taylor, that's exactly what mine looked like during my treatment of it with 101 different tryouts of things.
If the area isn't getting bigger, keep at it and pls report back.
I have just been diagnosed with a BCC on my nose, after being told last year it was just a scratch by a GP and had it zapped with the dry ice thing :( After the skin cancer doctor doing 3 biopsies and freaking me out, he says it's around $5000 up front, which I don't have, even if I wanted the surgery straight away. I'm glad I've seen this page and that people seem to have success with the ACV, baking soda and coconut oil. They are all things I already have, so I will start today and see what happens... It's good to see so many people here who have been through it before. I've not really been around anyone with this problem before, and the doctor scared the heck out of me :)
Claire from London:
If you can't treat it from outside, try the inside. Reduce intake of sugars to NIL (incl honey, syrups and alternative sweeteners).
Take Vitamin C powder mixed with water, baking soda and lemon juice. (Vitamin C powder Must be L-ascorbic acid as it is the best closest to natural. (2-3 teaspoons VitC, 1/2 teas soda and juice half lemon daily). You may need to start small and build up tolerance to Vit C (can trigger diarrhea). Can also drink Apple Cider vinegar (again start small). Or use it as a dressing for salads with lemon juice. What you are doing is changing gut bacteria through your digestive system and there's Internet info on Healing your Gut.
I'm progressing from this treatment to the treatments outlined here. So thank you folks!
Best wishes for speedy recoveries.
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil
Hi my mother is suffering for late stage skin cancer, I'm not sure what type of skin cancer it is. Can I just ask if it Baking soda + coconut oil can still heal late stages of skin cancer? Please email me if possible. thanks :)))) badly needed.
CherryJoy, Of course it will help any stage of BCC. Use organic raw apple cider vinegar and after generously wiping with a Cotton ball & allowing to dry apply baking soda & coconut oil. You should see results after 3 to 4 weeks. Stay away from chemical sunscreens and wear a large brimmed hat.
Baking Soda, Castor Oil, Hydrogen Peroxide
BCC skin cancer removal: I had a multi-point BCC [Basil Cell Carcinoma] removed surgically from an area between my right eye and ear. A painful and nasty procedure with only local anestetic and skin graft leaving a circular scar about the size of a 50cent piece. I noticed that a part of the cancer may have been missed about 1yr later and my concerns grew after it hollowed out and expanded. I really didn't wish to have another op. so I tried a treatment that I was using for skin tags and moles. I placed about a table spoon of bi-carb soda into a small measuring cup and added a small amount of csstor oil BP to blend up to a fairly consistent paste, no lumps but firm enough so it wouldn't run when placed on my lesion. I covered this with fabric band-aids and replaced it before going to bed and in the morning. As these lesions tend to bleed and weep freely anyway it helped more so to have the band-aid coverings on not only to stop the bleeding and weeping running down my face but to also hold the paste on the lesion. Ugly and not fun for about 2 weeks then I realised the bleeding was slowing. After 3 weeks I removed the covering one day and noticed the affected area had flattened out and no more bleeding but the area below and around it was very red and sensitive as if the solution had been burning the skin. I allowed it to air for a day placing Hydrogen Peroxide all over the area. It scabbed up overnight and I continued to keep it covered for the next few days. The scab was trying to lift and I was a little concerned that all was in vain but once the scab came off it left a smooth almost completely healed spot. That was yesterday 4/07/08 and today even better. I slept on it last night without being covered and even showered today without concern and not a hint of problem thus far. I hope to leave a little more feedback over the next 2 weeks on progress and I sincerely hope this is of help to many others who have real concerns over BCC's.
Warning though, the compound stings a bit and the burning and redness of surrounds may be disconcerting but please try it for yourself. All the best to all with this ailment and I hope I have been helpful to you.

Castor oil oil has a good reputation in the healing of tumors and growths. Because of this, I would hesitate to substitute it with something else. I suspect it is a critical ingredient.

Baking Soda, Hydrogen Peroxide
For around 2yrs I had a sore on my head that wouldn't heal, it was risen around the edge and depressed in the middle, kinda like a crater. I had a bad habit of picking it and assumed that was why it wouldn't heal so I decided to leave it alone and I put a paste of water and bicarbonate of soda on it at night for a few weeks and it cleared up in no time even although I would forget to put the bicarb on for days at a time.
A few months later a similar eruption appeared nearer the crown of my head and shortly after that another smaller one near it. This time I used 3% Hydrogen Peroxide as I could put it on throughout the day without the hassle of the caked bicarb in my hair. It felt like a needle being stabbed into my brain the first few times I done it, I got such a shock but it only lasted a minute or two and by the third of fourth application I didn't feel anything. Both sores cleared up within two weeks.
Now I couldn't see these sores on my head so don't know what they looked like, only what they felt like so last year when I noticed a small, raised, whiteish circle on my arm I didn't associate it with the things i'd felt on my head until recently when it started to pit/depress in the middle and felt just like them. This time I done a bit of research on skin problems that won't heal by themselves and as soon as I saw pictures and read about Basal Cell Carcinoma I am certain that is what these sores are. I will buy some Hydrogen Peroxide this week and do a follow up in a week or twos time.
