The String Method

I have removed three moles with the thread method. I used a sterilized piece of thread, you can only use this method with mushroom shaped moles (smaller base, with like a muffin top) and you have to tie the string (or hair) around the base pretty tight, but not tight enough to break the skin. Swab it with alcohol every day until it falls off (about 5 days.)

My friend (an RN) removed a large mole on my back by tying cotton thread around it and slowly cutting off it's blood flow. She'd tie a new thread, slightly tighter, every few days or so. After three weeks it came off. This was absolutely painless, the only thing that bothered me was my clothing rubbing on it so I kept a band-aid over it. It was quite large and got bigger and turned purple as it died. I'm sure a smaller mole would come off in less time.
