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 is working.

Now this is what I know ....from my experience

This is what I am doing


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


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.

Don, yes, that's what I mean by "feelings". And, btw, exercise does help with negativity.

About food: Sometimes, eating what your body doesn't like, builds up and builds up until it shows and tells you.

Feelings? I don't know about that one, but I guess ones outlook/attitude on life (if that's what you mean by "feelings") can have an effect on health. I have a very negative outlook on life; plus, I rarely exercise. I'm thinking maybe some exercise might help as I was waking up in the middle of the night a few yrs ago caused by a tad of vile wanting to come up from my stomach into my throat. I started jogging (not because I thought it would help, but because I had planned on getting some exercise before the vile). The vile subsided a bit more with every day of jogging until it went 100% away. I stopped jogging after a few weeks, but the vile hasn't returned.

As far as food goes, I don't think I'm eating anything different before the lesions.

Being blond/blue, and now 54 y/o and having many sunburns in the 70/80s I was thinking that may have something to do with the lesions. but most of the sunburns were on my arms, upper shoulders and back. no lesions there.

Thanks for the reply.

2 red lesions popped up on my chest in 2012. I decided to swab it with red wine vinegar (RWV) since that also cleared up some kind of red lesion on the side of my nose in 2010. that one was a bit oily, but no dripping. it was also a bit sore/tender if lightly touched with my finger. the ones in 2012 were not sore/tender and had no oily discharge. I applied the RWV 2-4 times daily to those. 5 weeks later they were quite faded. 3 weeks later, gone. Another one popped up about 1 yr ago. Did the RWV again. Caught this one earlier. Took only 3-4 weeks of RWV. Now, 4 more have popped up in the last week: 2 on stomach, 1 on chest, one on shoulder. I think they may be basal cell (BCC) carcinoma, but not sure. They sure look the pics of BCC on the internet.

Anyone have any suggestions of ridding myself of these things? - other than a doc which is a last resort.

Dear Tian,

I find that trying to identify herbs from pictures in books and on the internet to be difficult. As you observed, the pictures seem to contradict each other! I usually try to find a person who can easily identify herbs for me in person. (Not easy to find such a person.)

Milk Thistle does grow in Australia, so I wonder if "Australian" Milk Thistle is just identifying the harvest location?

When I am having trouble identifying or obtaining a specific herb for a health condition, I usually just try something else first.

There has also been some recent discussion here at Earth Clinic about using bentonite clay on BCC. It might be something to consider.

Posted by Tian (London) on 07/09/2015

Hello, I'm originally from Magnetic Island, Queensland, Australia and I've had one BCC cut and burnt off (a procedure I'd really rather not repeat)! I've got a second BCC which has appeared just under my left eye on the edge of my nose. I would love to try treating it with Milk Thistle. I wanted to ask for a picture of the plant so I can identify the right one. When I google Milk Thistle a few different images come up and I'm not sure if Australian Milk Thistle is the same as what I would find here in the UK (where I'm currently living). If you could help that would be great. Many thanks, Tian.

Has anyone else had experience with colloidal silver on an eyelid bbc? I have bbc on my lower eyelid and have been soaking a q-tip in colloidal silver (first started 10 ppm and now using 30 ppm) and applying on the bbc several times per day with no success. I've been doing this since February and have not noticed any difference in size or color. I want to avoid Moh's at all costs! I am also fearful of putting other remedies like Apple Cider Vinegar on or near my eye. any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

Has anyone found out what is causing these things. My husband has a Keratoacanthoma on the scalp. If someone had to study them and find out what they are made up of then they could definitely be neutralized. Like acid is neutralized by alkaline.

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.

I have been using both apple cider vinegar and a paste of bicarb and coconut oil. I am not sure if I knocked the scab, but it has bled and gone dark now, so is it safe to continue with both of these treatments? Thank you so much

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.

About six or seven years ago I had a sore on my right elbow about the size of a quarter that would almost heal only to split open and start bleeding and oozing pulse again. I went to the doctor a couple of time, and each time he gave me some cream; I don't remember what but it did nothing. For two years I lived with this darn sore almost healing only to crack open and start the process all over again. One day out of frustration I put straight food grade peroxide on the sore, and it totally healed, and has never bothered me since. I don't know what that sore was but I joke with my daughter that I burned the darn thing off.

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 :)

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?

Mmsg: Very glad to hear from you w/ a positive update. I had been thinking maybe a poultice of Borax would help, as you were considering. I think it worth a try, maybe rotating w/ the Clay. I would also rotate any number of topical natural antibiotics like Iodine, Colloidal Silver, Hydrogen Peroxide. If no further progress, I would highly recommend one of those small Don Croft Zappers; at that local level the pathogens must die from a direct current.

I was shopping for Hemp Oil/CBD on Amazon the other day and found a merchant selling a combo-pack of Hemp Oil for oral consumption w/ a container of Hemp Oil Salve. This would surely make a difference as Cannabinoids are powerful anti-carcinogens.

Hope this helps.

Ok, people. For about two weeks I have been applying clay poultices (wet clay wrapped in a small piece of cotton cloth) for about 1/2 hour at a time on this BCC. I did that about 2-3 times a day. At first there was always gook (pus/blood) on the cloth when I took it off, but today there is no oozing of anything.

BUT, the area is still well defined with bumps and depressions. I will continue with clay but how will I know if it's gone and healing? My surgery is yet to be announced by the powers that be, I guess there is a LONG list of surgeries. I am contemplating asking for a biopsy, or punch biopsy or whatever, before they slash. Or if I see ANY part of it turning to normal skin height and looks, I'll be tempted to cancel the surgery. Any thoughts on the geography of what's left?

O.k. Here is my update. My spot that I had for years on the left side of my nose although looking like a scar where the biopsy was, I knew it wasn't right. My new biopsy came back BCC infiltrative focal pattern. Perhaps I didn't treat myself long enough with the natural treatments or even effudex. I am 9 days post MOHS. I feel very blessed that it hadn't spread further. Still Doc took out probably a centimeter or more and reconstructed the site. I was very lucky to have a skilled MOHS surgeon. she did a fine job as far as I can tell so far. Yeah, so for me for now, I'm probably going to be very vigilant about going to the Dr if something crops up.

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 Ole Robert Henry, your kind words were just so timely the day I read them. Thank you. It's interesting that you have mold issues as this has been a player in contributing to my ill health. Regarding your wife's new moles, could the mold be a contributing factor? I have long wondered about moles as they are often on the body in places that receive very little sunshine. The skin cancer specialist told me to check my husband that night for moles between his toes and his genitals (he was saving himself time! And we were at a clinic specially for hubby to be checked) as they were common places for moles to occur. We paint ours with lugals iodine - so far so good. Have had one that got a little darker and then a black spot in it, so it was treated with the iodine and the black spot is gone and it is lighter. All the best with your journey, God bless.

Julie, I've tried all of those things (minus aldara) and more for over a year. Nada. So I've made an appointment for surgery, and am just leaving it alone for now. Lo and behold, it looks a wee bit better, but very crusty and flaky, so I dab on a tiny bit of virgin olive oil once in a while so that it won't look too scary. If there is any significant difference by the time surgery rolls around, I might cancel it.

What I'm thinking is that maybe, just maybe, all those things actually DID work and now it has to heal. Who knows?!

HI U JULIE, , , , , , , , Black salve or blood root will get this but it does not know when to stop eating and will disfigure you. Please investigate Curederm, which is made from the egg plant.

If you need confidence, then buy and read the book.

Thanks Maria and ORH for all the info. Since I already mentalized myself that it will be cut out, I'm game to try anything around the house until they do that. I've made up the eggplant/vinegar mix and apply it many times daily. Will it help? I don't know yet, but it's transparent and the smell goes away after a few moments, so I don't care to put it on.

Morning and evening, just for good measure, I put on wet baking powder for a few minutes, wash it off and put green clay for a few minutes, wash it off and put some iodine. One layer of iodine doesn't stain the skin too much.

I don't WANT the surgery, but I've already tried SO many things for over a year and all I got for it is a spreading of the affected area, that I don't see what else to do. So I'll be left with a scar, big deal, I'm old enough not to care (much...)!

HI U MARIA, , , , , , , , , , , , , don't confuse me with the truly bright folks on this site. What I am is an educated Redneck that reads a lot. I'v told this story several times , but I will repeat it and expand it to my wife and her body moles. I have only had two skin cancers affirmed and both I had them addressed traditionally. One did not work on my hand and I took care of that with Curaderm after I had read Dr. Cham's book. All MDs do not hurt for ego and my friend and integrative doctor would not accept that he had failed . Yep , he did. The next cancer was on my forehead and I decided to let a competent Dermatologist handle that one and he did. He cut and test and cut some more until he had a clean site. I can't believe that the cancer breast surgeons are just now doing this.

My wife of 54 years has a number or raised red moles on her back and it does not bother her, but it is bothering me. I have put Curaderm on several but to no avail. Chum says if they are not cancerous then nothing will happen. That was what we experienced. She now has one that is under her bra and it stays irritated and red. I told her today that we will address that with ACV and see if we can remove it.

I know hydrogen peroxide, but I did not know the cream. I did the google thing jus now and yep it's there. I have an Medical Ozone Generator and wonder if Ozonated Olive Oil would not be more powerful. Have no clue.

In short, Maria, I think you can send me to school on this subject, but I appreciate you thinking of me. All us old folks want to be loved, especially by someone as nice as you.

Hi Mmsg, I have never used this but here is an interview with Dr Cham who is the inventer of the original curraderm cream

Also there is a version made with oil. It is made with "devils apple" which is what Dr Cham started with before he used the eggplant so I believe it could also be made with eggplant.

We have had complete success with 3% H2O2 cream applied 3-5 times a day. It scabbed up & then errupted. this happened twice the 3rd scab then healed leaving a minute scar that you have to look for to find. All the ones removed by specialist dr have visable scars, to be fair he did suggest a plastic surgeon for one. You can make your own using something like non mineral oil sorbulene 10 parts & 35% hydrogen peroxide 1 part. This was pathology diagnosed that was supposed to be removed over 10 yrs ago. needless to say we now treat any spot ourselves with this or iodine. oh and thanks for the sage (herb) suggestion a couple of yrs ago. All the best, God bless

HI U Mmsg, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Don't look at me. I explained my experience with eggplant. The only experience with an eggplant concoction that I made and used was to remove the age spots on my arms. I just half-assed it, but my arms looked much better.

When I had a sho nuff skin cancer, then I bought the Curaderm from the internet. It worked in just a few weeks. This was after my doctor removed it and the pathologist said he got it all. BS, BS, BS. It came back PDQ and raging....big and black.

I am not going to tell you what to do. But if I have another skin cancer then I will use Curaderm made my a microbiologist and not something I did in my wife's kitchen.

I thank you for calling me out, but don't put me in the league with the really bright folks on this site. I am just a smart ass educated Redneck that reads a lot and tells a pretty good story.

Ol' Robert Henry, or anyone else that knows: I was at the surgeon today, thinking they would cut out the BCC on the spot, but no, I have to wait for them to give me an appointment for that, so I still have a lil' bit of time to keep trying natural stuff, as I've been doing this past year, only to see the area grow....

My question: I just bought a "stressed" eggplant, blended it and soaked it in white vinegar. As per instructions that I read, I'm supposed to leave it for 3 days to ferment, then start applying it. Do you or does anyone know how soon might I see results? If I see positive results before my appointment, I might postpone the surgery...

Richard, glad that Moh's surgery has worked well for you. Many of us with BCC/SCCs end up in alt med because of recurrence.

I had a BCC removed by Moh's. The incision ran from the outer corner of my eye to the inner corner and then down my nose to below my upper lip. Caring for such a large open wound near my brain was truly terrifying.

About a month after the surgery, a new growth started up on the opposite side of my nose. Eight months after my surgery, a new growth started up right on the Moh's incision line. This is not unusual for cancer surgery patients to experience.

Moh's surgery does not guarantee skin cancer will not recurr in that spot or other spots. Like black salve, vit C, etc., it is treating the symptom, but not the cause.

My point is that conventional medicine is no better off than we are in keeping cancers from recurring. It is simply a different way of removing cancer growths. Removing them does not necessarily cure the patient of cancer.

Hi, I am delighted to hear that you are all having success with your natural treatments. I wish you all luck and health.

However, being a long time sufferer of BCC I have to say that the Mohs and plastics surgery I have had has been amazing and if you can afford it it has been a good option for me. Several of my colleagues have had large BCC removed from their faces and due to the good auspices of an american trained plastic surgeon are good as new.

The only other thing I would add is if you cure yourself please invest some $ in a biopsy to make sure. I have had a bcc "heal up" only to be active underneath requiring a 2" hole in my neck and a skin graft.

On the subject of melanoma please don't delay I have also been down that route and am still here 16 years later and have seen my kids grow up due to surgery. The prognosis isn't great if it gets out and about.

I'd love to try your cures but for me I can't take a chance with the "experiment".

With very best wishes to you all.

greetings! I have been dealing with a basal cell carcinoma on my right cheek. I've gone through the scabbing and bleeding off and on for a period of months. I've used Yarrow oil, vitamin e oil, aloe vera, various essential oils, (thyme, rosemary and frankincense) and recently, emu oil, which is very soothing and medihoney, a Canadian compound. The lesion has finally stopped bleeding and is looking much better. I test using kinesiology to check what to use and how much. I refused any medical intervention which consisted of the cream flourouricil. I have also been taking mega doses of vitamin C for months, as well as fish oils and apigenin. its a real journey!

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.

Hi all,

BCC cancer is not a joke since it can inundate cartilage tissue and progress into the bone where it becomes very difficult to deal with often resulting in death. My first experience with it was to treat it with macky gooey Amazon topical skin creme a nasty skin burning acidic flesh eating concoction that resulted with an area of 1" size been eaten away to the living muscle tissue. healing was done in about one week leaving permanent white mark on my right chick an inch away from my ear. Additional visit to oncologist resulted in core samples been taken from around treated area, showing presence of BCC. Surgery was performed on jore line of my left chick because of lesion appearing there. I'm scheduled to have same procedure on my right chick near area I treated with Amasone topical skin creme. Here was beginning of my search to see what else can be done instead of surgery. Eggplant product made in Australia over two decades ago come to my attention called CURADERM topical creme or BEC5 which I have used for last two weeks. Burning and scaring was the result but when treatment was done and healing process finished there was nothing bud healthy tissue to be left behind this painful experience. Makers of this product suggest treatment to last between 7 and 70 days depending on you condition. Area of treatment is not to exceed 5 cm at a time. The creme contains ; Solasodin, Glycosides ( Bec) Salycilic acid and Urea.This stuff can be ordered at: and here in Australia it cost AU$ 124.00 for 20 ml (which goes a long way). I also bought Hulda Regehr Clark zap machine that supposed to kill defective skin cells by radio frequency. So far no conclusive evidence that it works. Yesterday 06/03/2014 I received her book called "The Cure For All Cancers" via distributing house called Book Depository. You can tray I'm also takin organically grown apricot kernels, 3 per day since it has B17 vitamin and tincture preparation named ESSIAC purchased from phone : 1-888-820-2126. My order of DERMACURE skin restoration creme has arrived today and this creme should deal with skin discoloration, dark marks, spots, scars etc. Email to order : [email protected] or phone in USA : 607-936-4617. This web side has information about alternative cancer clinics around the world : . As all of you folks can see every one paddles his own snake oils which deal with the surface problem but not dealing with the core of it. We all have some form of genetic predisposition which leads to our cells turning on and then failing to die at the end of the life cycles which is root of the problem in the first place. Research is been done in this field all around the world and probably one that is showing to be the most promising is that done in the field of cannabidiol, which is done by California Medical Centre and points towards CBD component of cannabis which actually turns off defective genes. This goope is very expensive and can be bought in San Diego from distributor : RSHO, LLC phone: 866-781-3083 or , . It would pay to see articles on youtube reffering to Simpson oil. Other methods of treatments are available around the world and one of them is so called BrachyTherapy developed in Italy and involving use of epidermal radioisotope therapy by rhenium-188. There is also bloke by name Richard Vensal D.D.S that claimed to have cured cancer with use of asparagus and list goes on and on all the way to cook for 4 minutes mixture made from bicarbonate soda and pure Canadian maple syrup. Well that's it people decision is yours. This information is not the advice for you to use any of these things and if you choose to go on the path of self healing is strictly you own decision. Best of luck on your journey and God bless you, Ivan.

Hola Justin! I've read a lot about the "black salve" but seeing that this thing is very visible, on the face between the eyes, we are looking for milder things. We have just tried French Green Clay for a bit, and now we are giving it a few days rest. It HAS stopped weeping and is developing a nice scab. The only undesirable thing is the raised area around this. Is this raised area hiding any more "bad guys"? I don't know.

Hello Mmsg from Somewhere Europe,

my name is Justin and I just came across your posting because it was related to Zappers. I don't know a whole lot about Zappers though I did buy one some years back ....I got the Terminator.

I'm not sure if anyone has already suggested this but are you familiar with a substance called "black salve"? I think it is primarily made from a few plants that grow in the dessert of SW USA, though for all I know people are also making it in other parts of the world. Anyway it is all natural. I first learned aboat it by reading something Jim Humble had written aboat using both MMS in conjunction with this specific black salve called "Indian Herb". Google them and you will find their web site. people with cancers and other illnesses have been treating them selves externally and internally with this salve. And from all that I have read and the Youtube videos I have seen the stuff really works. There are video blogs of people who apply black salve directly on top of there carcenomas and within a few days the salve actually eats down into the cancer and pulls it out by the roots. Leaving behind a clean hole where the cancer was and Then in time the skin just grows back and the body heals itself. I read aboat one guy who had prostate cancer and he cured himself by smearing black salve directly onto his cancer. Really I think it is a miraculous medicine, though I can not speak from personal experience seeing as I have never used it.

I purchased this salve some years back and called the business just to ask about the product and I got the owner on the phone. And she was super sweet and took the time to answer my questions.

cool well I sincerely hope you find the remedy and treatment to heal yourself. I wish you all the very best.....justin

Jos, firstly, I cannot get any here. Secondly, I'm a little wary of black salve as I'm reading it REALLY hurts and might leave scars. This vitamin C hurts too, but a bit less each time I put it on. Also, yesterday the gook it pulled out was brown, now it's yellow to clear, so I hope it's doing it's job!

Topically use the pancreatin with DMSO.

But won't hurt to take orally in addition. For a therapy to dissolve tumors, large amounts daily must be taken (for internal tumors)....8 each dose, five times daily and Dr Kelly had the patient taking one dose at night...3 AM. But again that was for internal tumors with time off a few days out of two weeks to cleanse the toxins out of system.

Nick Gonzales is the MD in Manhattan who took up the Kelly system. Much more to his system than just the enzymes. Dr Gonzales is one of my heroes.

Dear Mmsg,

Have you tried anything internal to go with the external? If you haven't tried internal turmeric, you might consider it. 1 teaspoon twice a day. We have found it to help skin stuff so much and it is anti-tumor/cancer.

Thanks, Mama to Many, Dave and Timh. Frankincense has been used but it seems too mild. Or maybe, it is usefull when all the gunk is out. Right now frequent applications of wetted vitamin C powder seems to be pulling out strange brown and clear liquids. So I guess the oils will be useful at night to give the skin a break from the aggressive day treatment. Actually, all this was already done and in about 2 months it was almost healed but there was a raised ring around a depressed crater and that's why it is now being attacked again. Sure enough it has become angry, weeping and ugly! I did learn that iodine creates a scab, and that might NOT be helpful, so now iodine is being applied only about once a day, with the vitamin C powder taking center stage right now during the daytime and oils at night. Timh: when you say Baking Soda and Borax, do you mean applied topically or taken internally? Same question to Dave about the pancreatin. Topically or internally?

Hello Mmsg,

You might also try mixing DMSO with broken caps of "pancreatin" and applying topically. Try twice a day for two weeks and see if the condition reduces. Pancreatic enzymes were the big "go to" in Dr Kelley's anti cancer program and is used extensively by Dr Nick Gonzales on New York to treat cancer. (There is MUCH more to Dr Gonzales' program than enzymes.)

Dear Mmsg,

I would consider trying frankincense essential oil. It is wonderful for skin issues and lots of other issues. It is gentle and can be used "neat" (without diluting.) Since it is for a delicate skin area and near the eyes, you could dilute it one to one with a carrier oil, perhaps coconut.

Frankincense is a pretty expensive essential oil, but would be cheaper than surgery. Look for a high quality oil. Heritage Essential Oils in TX, USA has excellent quality, but not sure if they ship to Europe.

Another thing to try would be castor oil. You could do both; castor at night and frankincense in the morning.

Please keep us posted!

Told ya'll that this would be a long and drawn out experiment and it certainly is. I changed it up today and mixed Bentonite Clay with the egg plant and ACV. That seemed to help. I also came up with the idea of wrapping my arms in press and seal plastic wrap. That keeps the potion wet and sealed on my arms. If this works on my arms then the next project is my face. When I way young, I looked like Tom Cruise. Now I look like Charles Bronson or Jack Palance. Both are so ugly that they are handsome some 300 yards off, and so am I, if you squint.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide

5 out of 5 stars

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.

Fellow, you don't listen. I've told this story a jullion times. I worked for 8 major paper companies in my career and all sent me to charm school of which I flunked. I's smart , jus not delightful. Messin with you.

The best thing that has come on EC in awhile is the lady who revealed how she got her mother through Alzheimer's . That's a biggie. The U of Calif, Erving did a study on rats with Alzheimers some 5 years ago and the Niacianamide cured them all . Their next move was to test on humans. That never happened and never will. It's a money thing. I have been taking niacianamide since that study but have not done the other stuff the Asheville lady recommended. Now I will.

My ole boss is close to being educated, but he insists that every thing go through a double blind test. When these tests end then everyone will be dead. He poo poos the recent EDTA Chelation test. I am the only person he has talked to who has done 60 + EDTA Chelations. Everyone else has not done one, and he listens to them. I have talked to hundreds of people in my Chelation sessions. They all are just glad to be alive after by-passes, stints , statins etc. None would ever go back to a cardiologist. That is a death sentence if you do what they say.

EC is blazing a trail. Yep, there are folks who need to be listening instead of talking and yep some of the guru's don't know stuff they talk about. Myself, I love Russ Limbaugh, but Russ knows nothing about nutrition, exercise, the medical field, but he does know politics. When he gets out of his expertise then I want to slap him up side his head. That is the way I feel about some EC folks. But overall, this site is doing a service to mankind.

There is a lack of clarification on the subject of age spots. I have two small age spots. I can put citric acid on it a couple times and just rub them off in a short term where the melatonin. I can claim that is a cure but it is not. They will eventually come back. A true cure is when they don't come back and the skin underneath heals.

They say the sun causes them but I just don't buy into that. It doesn't explain the condition under the age spot. Why that spot and not other clear spots. When the true cause gets known then someone will figure out a cure. I think a condition occurs at that spot on the skin and it causes the accumulation of melatonin to collect. I think the sun is just a secondary effect.

I have had a few posts swallowed up by EC but no big deal. I understand.

HI U GOD FEARING FOLKS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Have not been on the site since EC threw my harsh response out, and I wrote them back and told them that was the right thing to do. We all need to look after one another and not get upset when some folks try to get under your skin. As my mother always told me, "consider the source." I am a type "A" person, so that is hard.

Anyways, I don't have a great revelation to reveal but have just started an interesting experiment. As an old foggie who has spent their entire life in the sun in the sweat South, my hands and arms are pitiful. The sun has done its damage, and as all know, this turns into cancer eventually. Well, I wrote about that experience where I bought the eggplant ointment from Great Britain several years ago and cured my skin cancer. Now I am going to try and remove these brown spots before they get to that point.

None of this is original with me. I read it and will repeat what I've read. Today I cut up an eggplant and mixed Apple Cider Vinegar with it in a blender and will leave it in the refrigerator for a few days and then apply it to my hands first. I will do this at night and cover my hands with rubber gloves. I am thinking how DMSO could help in this endeavor but decided not to complicate the trial. May do that later.

Suspect this is a long time thing and will only report back when there are results. I am a love me or hate me kind of guy. I know this and try to do good, so bear with me a little bit.

Add 5% tincture of Iodine to the list of topical items we are trying.

Posted by Mmsg (Somewhere, Europe) on 10/26/2013

Suz, I am helping someone handle something similar right now. Since I have read that bloodroot is VERY effective BUT very harsh, I have opted for other topical means (vitamin C, cannabis oil, clay, vinegar, frankincense). I imagine that what you are seeing is the healing process of "two steps forward and one step back", which is what I am seeing. It's a work in progress and a person does need faith and good cheer to keep trying!

Posted by Nanowriter (Hotspot, Texas) on 10/26/2013

I had bcc diagnosed and biopsies roughly a year ago and have done a fair amount of reading since. One book that is very good is "Cancer Salves" which goes into detail about various anti cancer salves. Bloodroot is usually mixed with other ingredients and is effective, but can be a bit of a runaway train. You can search on YouTube and find videos of people who have used it.

A topical that I used on my nodular bcc was vitamin C, which I purchased in powder form, mixed with water and applied as continuously as I could stand. It was slow and fairly painful, but the growth dissolved and the C began dissolving the "fingers" that extended out from it.

As to the swelling you have, the way that many topicals supposedly work is that they remove the protective covering that keeps your immune system from realizing the cancer is there. So as your immune system is discovering the cancer, you are experiencing what would happen if your body fought a bacterial infection--swelling, pain, redness, etc. As to what lies beneath, even conventional treatments can miss part of the cancer and it will simply grow back.

Along these lines, if you do treat topically, extend the margins of treatment beyond what you see on the skin's surface by 1/2 inch or so in order to catch the "satellite cells" that are likely underneath.

Posted by Suz (Salt Lake City, Utah) on 10/25/2013

I'm so grateful... just discovered this site and spent a couple hours reading posts. ...great comfort to find this.

I am female, 64, very fair skin, and confirmed basel cell carcinoma on bridge of nose just to the left side. However, it is really hard to detect anything by a casual glance.

My nose was never discolored as is the case with some people with bsa, but I can see that there is (and has been for some time) a darkness under the skin on the bridge of my nose. Other than a slight puffiness to my nose, I could get by without anyone even guessing there is a problem. But then again the dermatologist didn't recognize the true issue a year ago and sent me home. At that time however, I clearly saw the first suspicious "pimples" and the tiny sore that wouldn't heal.

But, the biopsy in August 2013, was indeed positive this year.

....went to 2 different dermatologists this past summer, the first one did the biopsy and wanted to do surgery. I opted out... stalled on that.
.... I heard about MOHS surgery and kept looking for an answer.
.... and the second dermatologist wanted me to use a cream called Aldara.
.... got Aldara at the pharmacy but decided not to use it because of the side effects mentioned regarding the immune system.
... started looking on the internet and found information by a Ph.d researcher (mentioned other places on this site), and the associated company who sells bloodroot products and enzymes.
... He was encouraging and said that by using the product, most bsc will fade and disappear without using any bloodroot paste.
... ordered the package "A" and titrated up with the recommended bloodroot, enzymes, and bloodroot/with/buffer capsules till I was at a fairly high dosage and starting to feel nauseous then backed up and lowered the amount after 2 weeks, but continued on
.... I didn't keep an exact record on the daily amount but I will say that I have taken the product for 2 months now, but at a low amount 5 of the 8 weeks.

Observations: I did decide that the capsule with buffer mixed with bloodroot bothers my system, so I cut that down to 1 capsule per day together with a HALF capsule of the full strength bloodroot. I also take 2 enzyme capsules per each meal. I intend to continue to do this every day until all the suspicious spots fade or if I get better advice. I feel a subtle nausea every day but it doesn't distract me badly from my regular activities. One big discovery was that if I take 2-3 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice at the beginning of a meal, eat half the meal, then take the capsules, then finish the meal... I have less nausea.

More observations: a dozen or more small reddish spots have flared redder at first, then altogether disappeared, or they are in process of disappearing around my face, that is; mainly my forehead, plus 3 above my upper lip. Also something that looked like a large pimple in the middle of my cheek for months, has shrunken and I'm hopeful it will dry up and disappear soon... (it's barely noticeable now).

The irregular, slightly raised shapes on my nose (by the way they never were discolored), have smoothed out.
However I have had a few temporary "pimple" shapes appear right around the biopsy area, only to recede again.

I have wondered if there is a deeper problem down in the tissue of my nose, perhaps in the cartilage or even my sinuses. I don't know. I wish I could know.

My nose seems a bit puffy... I don't see my full nose definition that I had 6 months ago... I suppose I get nervous and worry that the carcinoma is progressing despite my efforts, but then again I wonder if it's just that the bloodroot herb is attacking deeper problems and thus causing a reaction in the skin.

I have, on my own, experimented with the bloodroot.

On 3 different occasions I have wet my index finger with water, dipped it in the bloodroot powder and rubbed it on my nose. It seemed to absorb most of it. Then I rubbed on a little emu oil.
I left it on for about 1 hour and washed it off.
I then apply aloe vera gel... and then, finally apply a little emu oil which is very, very healing.
Later in the day here was a slight sensation for a while... almost aching... but that's all.

Does that seem crazy or a bad idea... or a good idea?

My nose aches at times but then it feels fine at times.
I don't know if that means I am healing or getting worse.
I don't know if I should keep applying the bloodroot externally the way I am, or, I wonder if I should just continue to take the capsules daily the way I am.... or stop.
I would like to know if anyone else has tried doing something like this, or what they think of it.
This is such a guessing game.

What does the hurting or aching of the nose indicate? What does 'tingling' indicate? What does puffiness indicate?.

Genuine feedback would be most appreciated! Thank you.

I have used Black Salve/Bloodroot/Cancima on skin cancers for years with great success.

I made up my own salve from ingrediants available from wholesalers in Australia. The prepared product being too difficult and too expensive to get.

On some very old and deep lesions it is not a one off cure. You just have to be ever vigilant and apply to the spots as soon as you detect them. The biggest one covered nearly half my nose when I started. I removed it with 3 subsrquent applications. It still breaks out occasionally when I have been out in the sun with no protection, but if salve is applied as soon as a break in the skin is visible it is a quick removal with little discomfort.

I guess I have removed 20 or 30 BCC's since I started about 3 years ago. My daughter has my skin type and has als removed BCC's from her face. No knives for us thankyou!!

Dear Brooke,

We have used the Vitamin C treatment for my husband who had a flaking growth on his ear several years ago. It appeared to be pre-cancerous Squamous Cell Carcinoma. We used Vitamin C crystals (Ascorbic Acid). We put 1 part vitamin C and 8 parts water in a little glass bowl and applied it with a q-tip twice a day. (You make a new batch each day. ) Sometimes we forgot to treat it. 3x a day would have been better and covering it with a bandaid was recommended but we didn't do that. It was on his ear. We did this pretty faithfully for maybe a month or more. It did cure it and it hasn't come back. That was all we did. We read about this in the book, Cancer, Step Outside the Box. The author said with would work for BCC or SCC. He also recommended Colloidal Silver, but didn't give much information about how often to use it.

I think any treatment would work better if you worked on getting your body ph where it should be. There is tons of information on this site about that. Also, since cancer loves sugar, keeping that to a minimum would be ideal.

Please let us know what helps you!

I've read with great interest some of the remedies here. I've just had a punch biopsy by a local skin doctor the results of which gave the diagnosis of “Multifocal and Infiltrating Basal Cell Carcinoma.”

I went for a consultation with a local plastic surgeon and when he explained the recommended surgery, it was a real turnoff. He did say that sometimes the biopsy produced a cure and suggested waiting a few weeks. When I got home, I decided to research non-surgical treatments and cures and came up with your site. I was impressed by many of the results shared by people with a similar diagnosis or pathology.

I went out and bought some of the ingredients that were mentioned and seemed to be most effective, like: Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Milk Thistle, 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, Vitamin C Crystals, Iodine (what's different about the “tincture” type of Iodine and is that important in this sort of treatment?) and Colloidal Silver. Any good recipes, using these ingredients?

I have a couple of other questions for those who've experimented successfully with some of the above ingredients. It seems that some of the items mentioned have an acidic base, is that important? Therefore, I wondered if I the Vitamin C should be the acidic type or can it be buffered? Also, is there a difference between crystals and powder? And, has anyone tried altering treatments, like one recipe in the morning and another at night? And, finally, has anyone tried anything using probiotics successfully?

I look forward to hearing your answers to the above questions and any other ideas you might have.

Hi Peter,

there are several video's on youtube about skin cancer cures. I know that anyone can post on youtube but most of them have open comments on them also. A lot of them that I've seen were claiming that the product or products worked. These are not pharmaceuticals, so they are not trying to sell you anything. The reason I responded to your comment was b/c I used to be a big sun worshipper, and I lived on the Jersey Shore beaches all summer long. Now in my 50s, I get a little paranoid if I see a new freckle. I wanted to do some research on my own in case a Dr ever told me that I did have skin cancer. So while I'm not exactly giving you any answers, I'm hoping I was able to help you look into some other options that might help. You may want to search black salve on youtube or one video in particular on there was about BCC and the man documented his progress. You can see it here,

Hope that helps.

(He is even more fair skinned. ) Anyway, we didn't want to go down the medical route. We read about using Vitamin C on skin cancer in the book, "Cancer: Step Outside of the Box. " We used his protocol for skin cancer and it worked!!! You mix vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid- get a good one that is non-gmo. ) 1 part Vitamin C powder with 8 parts water. We would use a cotton ball to apply this solution to the ear a couple of times a day. 4 times a day would be better but he was away at work during the day. He also forgot sometimes. But within a month the spot was gone. That was a couple of years ago and it has not reappeared.

One complication you have is that the spot is on the eyelid. I do not know if this solution would burn the eye. You could add salt to it to get it to a comfortable PH for the eye. But I am not sure how much that would be. You could also put castor oil in the eye before putting the vitamin C solution on the eyelid, but you wouldn't want to get the castor oil on the eyelid because then the solution would not adhere to the eye.

The author of this book also says that colloidal silver will kill cancer cells. I think some people use this in the eye, so it may be easier on the eye, but I have no experience with this. Someone else might say if colloidal silver can go in the eyes. The author says that you should get a high quality silver, in other words with smaller particles. Not sure what else to say about this as we have no experience with it, but I thought I would mention it in case you wanted to research it.

Hope you find a good natural solution! Let us know what works for you!

Lala, read up on castor oil. And also on BCC right here on EC.

You can use topical vitamin C on basal cell carcinoma, but I don't know how or if you can use it so close to the eye--you would need to figure that out. I used vitamin C paste on a diagnosed, biopsied bcc and had a lot of success reducing it. There is a skin cancer website that covers it in more detail. Good luck!

How can I treat my husbands BCC on his lower eyelid? It's on the edge where the lashes are and a bit inside the lid. Are there some kind of drops that would help? He has had two Moh procedures on it already and not going again. He's had so many moh's procedures on his face and ear. He also has several on his back and chest.

Alcohol and antibiotic ointment have been a successful therapy for a basal cell next to my ear that was removed and returned. Had to be the combo as each by itself was ineffective. Cleared in scalp as well. Please post.

I read about Mike's (from Durham) treatment of Melatonin and Coconut oil and then your post. I have had multiple BCC and SCC in my lifetime due to sun exposure. Most have been surgically removed or treated with Aldara. I have had a severe reaction to the Aldara with extreme dizziness, fatique, and depression, so that is no longer an option. I am fasinated with the option of Melatonin and Coconut oil and wanted to know how much melatonin vs coconut oil is used... Basically how do you make it? Thanks for your help, Rebecca of Raleigh

I would suggest castor oil for your lip. It works well for the skin. I have used it to soften my heels. It comes in a roll on formula now at a major retail store. It does work as a laxative. But in such a small quantity as a lip salve, I doubt that would be an issue.

I have not tried this personally. But, I would try it if I had that problem.

Another thought would be coconut oil. Both of these are anti fungal and there are researchers out there who believe cancers have a fungal basis.

Best of luck!

I have a basal cell carcinoma on my lower lip. You can hardly see it becuase I think it's under skin. I wonder how to treat this on a lip?

I believe the thistle you are referring to is actually the Common Sow Thistle (Sonchus Oleraceus).

The sap is white but quickly turns brown on exposure to the air. I too have used it for many years to treat minor skin cancers and sun spots and know it to be safe and effective.

I have fair skin and spent much of my youth on the beach in summer at a time when there was little or no protection from the sun. By age 30 I was regularly going to the doctor to have BCCs burnt off with liquid nitrogen. It was a effective but painful and always left a patch of de-pigmented skin. Then one day I met an old horse trainer who showed me how he trated sun cancers on the nose of his horse by breaking the stem of a common weed and dabbing on the white juice that oozed out. The weed is known here as Milk Thistle or sometimes St Mary's Thistle and is prolific in this part of the world; it pops up everywhere, even in cracks in the pavement.

I never went to the doctor again for BCCs and I have treated dozens of them over the last 30 years or so using the Milk Thistle. You simply break the stem near the top where it is soft, wait a few seconds for the white sap to rise, and dab it on. Then leave it. After an hour or so it will turn a brown colour and after a few days will turn almost black. It sticks like tar and will not come off, even in the shower, providing you dont scrub it! After a week or so it will gradually wear off and the BCC will be much reduced if not gone altogether. Persistent cases may need a second application. It is painless, does not leave a scar or loss of pigment; it is simple to use and it's free! The whole world should know about the old fashioned "cow-cocky" remedy, but I guess that would put a lot of fancy skin cancer clinics out of business.

COCONUT OIL, MELATONIN FOR AK, BCC. O.K. It must be about day 30 after treating 24/7 for 10 days and then at least at night. There is no root visible and my skin is not tender. I have a pea sized area of pinker skin which is a scar from the effudex but it's not very visible and I don't need makeup. I've been messing with this spot for 2 yrs! Just wish I had a biopsy before to know if it was bcc or just ak. Highly recommend this!

Thank you so much for your post on melatonin and coconut oil. I've had a spot on the side of my nose I tried Vit C and peroxide but not long enough probably. Finally I tried Effudex twice a day for 3 weeks. I assumed it was cured but the area didn't heal well and it was really a nasty process. Two months later it started to bleed again after accidentally scrubbing the area! I couldn't get an appt with a dermatologist for a month so I tried the melatonin I am on day 10 of powdered melatonin and coconut oil paste and it really seems like it is working, the area looks better and better and is finally not so tender. The best part is you don't have a nasty wound while using the paste and can go out as normal. I never had a biopsy but I think the effudex would have been effective on an ak. Anyway if I continue to have success I'll repost.

I know this thread is old, but in doing my own research I came across it hoping to find some answers myself. Before applying anything to your possible BCC, you may want to read this evidence-based article about Cansema and other topical agents:

"In 2002, the Archives of Dermatology published a report of four patients who had used escharotic agents instead of standard treatment for a basal cell cancer [1]. In the first patient, the visible tumor was removed and the skin healed. However, a biopsy several months later showed that cancer remained under the skin. The second patient successfully eradicated his tumors but sustained severe scarring that required surgery to repair."

I am young and, as much as I dont want to, I will continue on with my surgical option in hopes that the scar left behind will be smaller than what could potentially happen if other treatments truly are quackery.

Vitamin C
Posted by Sigurður (Oberlin, Ohio) on 07/24/2012

The simplest way to remove a small basal cell carcinoma is with the head of a nail heated on the stove or with a propane torch, it does smart a bit and scars a little more than freezing it out with liquid nitrogen, but it's vastly less expensive. Just use common sense, go slow and easy, and don't thrust it violently into the skin as in some old cowboy movie.

Vitamin C
Posted by Freedomforscience (Asheville, Nc) on 03/20/2012

I had a feeling I couldn't have treated my spot enough in my first post but because of work I let it go on for months since it wasn't too noticeable, less than 1mm and flat but then it got a little bloody one day so this is what I did. First, I'm not advising anyone to do this, I'm a DIY junkie. It matched the description for BCC but I didn't have a biopsy (my Dad is always having them burned off). The first day I cleaned it with H2O2 and put a paste of ascorbic acid. This makes the surrounding tissue very red so the second night I switched to Sodium ascorbate. After my showers I also used H202. By the 4th night I had like a raised white scab thing and I was to work on the 6th day so I quit putting vit c on. I used h202 but I didn't try to pull the white scab off because I was afraid it would look worse at work. It was an ugly blemish on the side of my nose.

By the 7th night after work the crust was real hard and I tried to pull it but it started to bleed from under it. The bleeding stopped when I washed it with H202 and I nervously went to bed (what have I done now! ?). On day 8 I took a steamy shower which softened the white dead skin and applying peroxide with an eye dropper I easily debrided the white skin leaving a clean red mark. After that I used peroxide acouple times a day which caused less and less of white exudate and now day 10 I have a non reactive spot of skin that looks pretty fabulous. You can just barely see a slightly redder color of skin where it used to be like a healed scab. I really can't believe it so I will follow up on this post periodically to say whether it comes back.

I also couldn't maintain the vegan diet from last post and had started eating dairy. I did go vegan for 10 days right before I started this treatment again but got too tired at my job and ate some cheese. (lactovegetaian 30 years). I'm gonna attempt to keep the dairy at a minimum. I must say I'm gonna feel relieved at work today that it appears I have not just made something worse! Last time I used Vit C I didn't use peroxide at all so maybe that's the key. You have to get that white bubbly growth of exudate, I don't know unfortunately, I'm just saying so far this is less painful than going to the Dr! Oh yeah, and cost less than a couple bucks. Sodium ascorbate powder is expensive but my jar was like 4 yrs old so I'm not sure it was active but it didn't look oxidized
