When I first read about iodine being used for moles I was a little skeptical so I ran a test and the results so far are very interesting. Iodine definitely removes moles when applied the right way and with good frequency. I tested it on 6 moles and it removed each one. They were mostly flat, and I know most people like to remove the raised ones, but iodine seems to be a good solution for people like me with flat moes.

After having moles on my body all of my life I figured I was stuck with them. I had a few removed (surgically) when I was a teenager and the rest I figured I'd have forever. Until I saw this thread I figured why not give iodine a try. It couldn't hurt right? I can't believe it.

Within days the moles had dried up, and like others mentioned, formed a scab. I kept up with the iodine and low an behold the moles are gone! I had 3 prominent moles on my chest that I was always self conscious of. They're gone! Why didn't I know about this 20 years ago??? Thanks for an awesome tip!

Iodine (liquid) worked for me to remove raised mole. I'd recommend puting vaseline around the area to avoid irriation of surrounding skin. I was skeptical, but iodine actually worked.

Iodine for Mole Removal:

Iodine removed a scarey mole on my neck. I was really worried that it was a form of skin cancer as it was blistery looking, itchy and would turn reddish. I applied Iodine once or twice a day and almost immediately it sort of turned brown and dried up like a scab. Eventually after about 1 week it just flaked off. Iodine definitely works with no pain at all.

Thanks for the info about using iodine to remove moles. It really works! I bought a $3 bottle of generic tincture of iodine and applied it to the mole 2 or 3 times daily and the moles came off usually within a week! I had one black mole and a few light toned moles and the iodine worked on all of them. Thank you!! This site is great.

PAINTED IODINE MAKES A MOLE OR SKIN TAG FALL OFF: I had just been checked for skin cancer at my HMO and was told that the blemishes on my skin were non-cancerous, so hving read all of the positive results with iodine, I decided to try it for myself. I ordered Lugol's online and applied it to a "mole" (for lack of a more specific term) on my hand which had appeared a few years ago. I applied it once per day for about 3 weeks and it disappeared. After about 2 weeks the skin started to get a bit dry and flakey so after 3 weeks I stopped applying the iodine. About 1 week later the flakey skin flaked off to reveal the lack of any "mole". I am going to try this again on a few more of these "moles" on other parts of my body. Thanks!

I had been reading about Iodine and how it could get rid of different skin lesions, so I decided to give it a try on several Sebaceous Keratoses on my torso, several quite large. It has worked wonderfully. It took about 2 weeks for them to go away, and I applied it 2x a day most days. I put it on with a q-tip and let it dry before getting dressed. I sometimes scratched them lightly first with a emery nail file before applying the iodine. I use the Lugols, because I also take it by drops internally each day.

I have had at least 10 moles removed by my dermatologist, and after they were burned off (they usually burn, or freeze them), It took about 2 weeks for the cuts to heal (depending on the depth of the cut). Then, once the skin was basically healed, a pink mark was left behind. After a while (usually a month or two), my color would return and blend in with the surrounding area. Some of the areas that my dermatologist cut left a hole in my skin, which has never filled in. So far, Iodine has removed moles from my skin, but never left any holes (depressions) in my skin.

Iodine worked to remove my moles. Make sure to gently scratch (softly) and then apply the iodine. I applied the iodine at least 3X's a day.

Iodine helped get rid of moles but left pink spots how do I make the pink spots heal faster or blend in with the skin?

Thank you everyone. Iodine worked brilliantly for removing my moles. The trick was to rub them with a pumice stone or scratch them with a needle before applying the iodine 2-3 times a day. Hey presto ! Mole gone in a week to 10 days. Once the moles turn hard you can stop applying the iodine. I also found apple cider vinegar worked as well, but must be careful not to over apply as it irritates the surrounding skin (only needed to apply this for 2-3 days to kill the mole. Thanks to this site for the information, I never thought it would be so easy.

I use tincture of iodine (everyday) on skin ulcers which refuse to heal. Sometimes I apply iodine 2 to 3 times a day. I never miss a day when treating squamous cell carcinoma. The area being treated by the tincture of iodine often becomes very sensitive or itchy...don't discontinue the iodine...keep applying iodine on the ulcer. The itchy skin will scab up...it's just the healing process. Scrape off the skin if it again develops a white flaky patch or a brown scab...then, apply more iodine. Use the iodine for at least one to two months until the skin ulcer has completely disappeared. Then, use Retin-A cream to complete the skin rejuvenation process. Use Raw Organic Palm Fruit Oil along with the iodine to promote deep healing and also use Raw Organic Palm Fruit Oil along with sun block to prevent future skin damage. The ulcer patches have developed on my hands and lower arms. One skin damaged area shows my skin separating on crease lines on top of my wrist. The day after I applied the tincture of iodine to the separating skin, the crease lines showed signs of healing, as blood circulation appeared in the area. The areas I treat are all about the size of a quarter, which is larger than the freckle-sized spot. I figure the underlying skin damage takes in a larger area and it may only show up on the skin as a small freckle-sized spot. Last, everyone will ask you why you are using iodine on your skin...it's orange...it's sooo old fashioned. Don't let the embarrassment of orangey skin stop your self-treatment...it beats having a doctor remove the cancer and leaving you with holes where the carcinoma or melanoma used to be. I use this treatment on all skin problems, to include possible melanoma. In addition to the topical treatment, I plan to add a daily dose of Lugol's Iodine in my drinking water. I want to treat all cancers and other health problems from within. I have red hair and white skin with lots of freckles, and I am very sun sensitive. I have been terribly burned year after year while growing up in California. I am now 56 years old, and the skin cancer is just starting to appear. That's why I feel it necessary to add the Lugol's Iodine daily to my drinking water.

Iodine is excellent for toenail fungus, ringworm, fever blisters, moles and skin tags, hangnails, etc. Just a few drops on a q-tip is all it takes. Use daily until the "boo-boo" is gone.

I had a raised mole to come up on my face and several skin tags to appear under my arm. I was embarrassed by the mole on my face, but didn't have the money to have it removed. Using a q-tip, I rubbed iodine on both the mole and skin tags at night before going to bed. Within 3 to 7 days the skin tag dried and fell off while the mole went away. I have shared this information with my sister who has removed several as well.
