I tried to remove a mole using garlic, the mole is half the size it was before and is very dry and hard. The skin around it has become red and inflammed. I decided to stop the garlic treatment. Is there anyway I can reduce the redness?

I pierced a mole and then put a fresh piece of cut garlic on the mole, and secured it with a cotton taped to keep it in place. Did it for 2 days and the mole dried up and fell off. I have successfully done this twice.

Well I wish I googled "garlic burned my face" first before trying this remedy. Actually it's not some kind of garlic miracle that removes moles, just dilute sulfuric (battery) acid from garlic. It can cause up to 3rd degree burns. So after leaving crushed garlic right on the mole overnight, I woke up shocked to notice the 2nd degree burn as a large circle around mole on my face. There was blood and yellowish liquid coming off. Pigmented layer was burnt of the mole but it still appeared rised. Since I had coconut oil, vitamin E at home, I tried these for 2 days without improvement. Luckily then I found that cream Bepanthen from pharmacy will help heal these type of burns within week. With cream, the burned skin AND the MOLE were healed in 4 days.

I used garlic paste on a pimple yesterday and have suffered a burn. Could you please tell me if you used Bepanthen first aid cream or Bepanthen diaper rash cream? Thank you.

I used a garlic for a week to remove my flat face mole but it left a black burning mark. What should I used to remove it?

I put a shred of garlic clove on my facial mole, it was really small but it was on the tip of my nose & I didnt like it. So yesterday is when I put the garlic and just now I removed the facial mole with a toothpick and I just picked it off. Yes it's kinda painful, but worth it! because it is now gone :)

The garlic definitely removed my mole, but there's a grayish discoloration around where the mole was where the garlic pulp spilled over. I was too much of a wuss to peel off the mole once it was shriveled and scabbed, so it took about 10 days to get rid of.

But I still have that gray pigmentation in a big ugly circle. How do I get rid of it?

I tried garlic at 3 consecutive night on my mole but it started to getting bigger. So I really need to know if there any solution to it. Its getting worse and ugly at the moment. Please what can I do right now?

Garlic worked but with side effects. I tried the garlic remedy for my facial moles and I did get rid of them in four days. The only problem is my moles were very small like pinhead sized so it was difficult to apply the garlic on just the moles without the surrounding skin. So I burnt my face badly and now have bean sized black scars on my face. I have tried vitamin e oil and cream to fade the scars without success. If anyone here knows how I can fade these black scars without bleaching my face (am african) I would really appreciate.

About 4 days ago I tried the garlic remedie, then every day I would apply garlic juice about 3 times a day. Then at night I would cut a piece of garlic and put it on the mole and cover it with a bandage then go to sleep. When I wake up I would peel it and repeat. And just a few hours ago I peeled a little skin off, and it was bleeding a lot. but surprisingly it doesn't hurt one bit. and when I press the spot of my mole it hurts a little. Please advise!! Thanks

I didn't believe a single word of garlic..cause I thought it was the same things people listen and say without trying it. I decided to give it a try.

I had two moles(flat) by birth with a diameter of almost .05 and two other moles which were not there by birth. I decided to try on all four of them. I squashed a garlic with a kitchen rols and put a small piece of it on each mole and covered it with a scotch tape..since I didn't have a band aid or medical tape. I slept with it, and next morning my cheek was burnt on the skin where garlic had touched it. The mole had given out some sort of liquid too. I cleaned it and applied garlic again in the day and kept it on. I did the same at night. Next morning I looked worse then ever, it seemed as if I was scarred for life, so at day I gave it a break..I even peeled a bit of mole with tweezer but it hurt like hell so I left it alone. The third day I didn't apply garlic. However at night I applied garlic, this time I applied vasline to skin around the mole. Next day(fourth day) I didn't apply garlic. I took a bath and peeled off some of the moles. There was still some part of mole left clinging to skin. However when it dried up by next day, I just peeled it off. Todays the sixth day, by burns are almost gone and so are the moles, IT IS AMAZING. I couldn't believe it. It actually worked, Thanks to Earth clinic. And YAY for garlic. I'm glad. :)

Hello I like to say how glad I am to find this website,it rocks. anyhow I always never been a big fan of medical treatments from doctors anyhow. I have had multiple failures on their treatments and now I have become a lab rat for my projects at home which i wont state to you now on the results until I see positive results... But I will say I have used many treatments through Earth Clinic and had no failures on remedies yet to date, my new project is ridding moles on my side chest under my arm, if it is successful i will tell you all later time, i only started to try and rid it with only garlic clove and boy it stings, but i will live through it all. also like to say my father in-law has a bad case of gout on his feet and fingers and i called him and told him I want to try something on it that is natural as I see him not getting any results on modern medicines. ok thats all for now, oh one more thing my secret project becomes a success i will sheare it with you all for free, i hate the sites you read for a cure and at the end it say $19.99 for this book of home remedies why? i got it free here ok thats all for now peace

I had a couple of small moles on my face which were (at least to me) unsightly. Especially during the winter, when my tan went away. I decided to try some remedies that i found online. Applying honey to the mole didn't do anything for me. Neither did eating a lot of potassium. So i decided to try garlic. I got one of those bowls with a masher and mashed up two little Garlic peaces. When they where all mashed up, i got a Q-tip, and rubbed the inside of the bowl. (with the garlic still in it) I then took the Q-tip and placed it on one of my moles, and in just one day, it fell mostly off. I still have a small portion of the outer ring, but hopefully that will go away too. Otherwise, clear beautiful skin was discovered under the mole. Hope this helps. God bless you guys.

Two months ago I used garlic to try to remove three moles on my body. I smashed and cut a piece of garlic for each held on by a bandage. I admit i didn't follow the advice to use the smallest piece possible because it burns the skin around the mole. The garlic kept moving around under the bandage. which gave me a burn, so i taped it on. That gave me a worse burn and cellulitis, but not on my face. The mole on my face peeled off with clean skin under. I did see two black roots left and within a month the black came back but the mole is really flat. The other two are a lot smaller. I actually had two skin tags, that i wasn't treating, dry up and fall off, which i thought was really cool. I also had swollen glands in my groin. This whole time I am swallowing a smashed and cut up raw clove every time I ate something. I didn't chew it. I did this for two and a half weeks. This time for about a week i had a pain on my right side every time i had a full bladder. The pain was getting steady and the next day i had a fever. I swallowed two cloves and chewed the third. It burned so i swallowed quick. The next day my man said i was snoring like crazy which i normally don't do according to him. Then i noticed the pain and fever were gone, but the inside of my cheeks and a little on the roof of my mouth were swollen. I can feel the glands in my face are swollen also. 12 hours later the swelling in my mouth is subsiding. I don't advise chewing it but swallowing raw garlic rules. Scientific studies say cut up raw garlic kills bacteria and such in a 9 inch radius around it. Scientific studies also show garlic kills cancer. This site rules.

Hi everyone, I have problems with several moles on my body that has hindered me from having confidence in myself for over 22 years =// --especially being a young woman and seeing your friends enjoy summer and me being in the shade dressed for winter......Mom, have you had any problems with regrowth in your moles?? I have 5 I want to attempt to get rid of, I have wanted to go to the dermatologist but it's so costly and I don't want to be under a laser. I have two on my waistline, one fairly large (approx. 1cm in diameter and another that is about 4mm slightly raised about 2mm) and 2 more on my arm similar in size to the smaller (3-4mm slightly raised about 2mm) -- I just wanted to know if you've had any problems with regrowth...please let me know thanks so much! I'm glad I found out there were alternatives that I could try versus spending hundreds on getting them removed...stuff that I have at home!!! Who knew?? It's would've made a big dent in my wallet --it's so hard being a student because I don't have much extra cash laying around...thanks again!

Hi Ana. Over the years the moles (both flat and ones that stick out) on my face have doubled. I found this site about one week ago and decided to finally try the apple cider vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. I was skeptical because I was afraid of it disfiguring or scarring my face. First, I scratched at the moles with a steriled needle to prep them and then I applied the hydrogen peroxide with a q-tip. I did this for two days and then decided to try the apple cider vinegar instead of the peroxide. I knew it would probably burn, but did it anyways. By the end of day three the smaller ones were crusted over and just me rubbing them made them fall off like a scab. I am into day four and amazed as to the effectiveness of this natural treatment. I priced removal by a doctor and could not afford the cost so this site is a blessing. If you decide to use the apple cider vinegar, just be sure to protect the surrounding skin with vaseline so you do not get an unnecessary irritation. I have dark skin and the moles I treated did turn pink at the site; however, by day three it was unnoticable. Between treatments you can apply A&D ointment on the treated site to promote healthy healing like I did. I hope this helps. Blessings

I tried the garlic remedy for a mole on my face after researching all over the web, and reading about such success stories. I'm on day 3, and I have already noticed a difference in the size. The mole currently appears to be a flat scab, and I am hoping it falls off soon. I have taken the advice of only using a piece of crushed garlic which covers the mole, and the use of lotions and such to prevent burning. I've only been leaving the garlic on for about 10 to 15 minutes at a time, since it is a facial mole. This seems to have been enough time.

Hi guys. I started the garlic procedure to remove a raised mole on my forearm. I've warn long sleeves for forever because of how much I hated it. About a month ago I heard about this remedy, so I tried it & after about 4 days I wasn't seeing any results besides half of the mole was a bit lighter. I stopped the experiment, & after a few weeks, I decided to try 1 more time so I started 2 days ago, this is my 3rd day now & I definetely see results ! I really think its going to work. The 1st time I tried this remedy I was putting too big of a piece on the mole, about 4 times the sixe of it, which was just damaging the sin around the mole. Now I've been only cutting a small piece to fit the mole perfectly. I've heard you should scratch at the mole just a little bit w a knife or something, not hard, so thats what I did this time [only the 1st time u apply the garlic, not everytime, just once for the whole experiment], so i washed the area 1st, scratched the mole up a tiny bit, cut the clove up, with the knife I rubbed the juice from the garlic onto my mole, I started to feel a tingling because I scratched at it, then wet a napkin & cleaned up any juice around the mole on my skin, apply the garlic piece & put a bandaid on. I go to work & 11 hours later take the bandage off & wash it & do the whole thing over w a fresh bandaid and piece of garlic. I have been using a whole new clove for each application. It is a big waste of garlic since I only use a tiny piece of it, but the cloves dry out quickly, even in a ziplock bag, so I just get a new 1. They are very cheap anyways. Now, my 3rd day, my mole is raised quite a bit more & its a bubble that I want to pop so badly ! There are a couple tiny bubbles on my skin around the mole, but from now on I am going to apply vaseline on my skin surrounding the mole to protect the skin. I will keep u guys updated !

I applied garlic for 3 to 4 days and peeled it off in the end... The skin under the mole is puffed and red... Wht should I do?

Posted by Aaron (Raleigh, North Carolina) on 01/21/2008

I tried to remove my moles with garlic. I would smash some garlic to a mush, then rub it on to the mole, put a bandaid on it and change it a few times a day. I tried this on 4 different moles because I thought it was working, different results on all of them. One was only a tiny spot to begin with and has grown into a full on mole after treatment. another one actually did completely flake off, this was a flat but pretty large one, but then slowly the pigment started to come back and now it's not as bad but there's still a large frecklish thing there, and the last two didnt really make a difference, the only thing in common for all of them is that the started to itch like crazy, like the most terrible feeling ever I would wake up at all hours of the night just dying to scratch and then all around the area that I applied it too would be a huge pink splotch and even some blistering, on my one big mole the skin would actualy get all crusty and dried and i would get all excited,but as soon as it would flake off there was just fresh lively mole underneath. I would NOY recomend the gralic at all, it literally burns your skin, the itching is the worst part but then the pain after and the pink rings that hand around after are the worst. I'm going to try the ACV I still want a natural remedy, but even if this might work for some people, the side affects are not worth it unless you have REALLY tough skin!

I am surprised by the number of posters here who keep garlic next to their skin for hours at a time. Of course it causes redness and/or burns! When you do use garlic on your skin, don't leave it on for more than 15 mins. Any longer than that and you may get a burn. Take it off even quicker if you feel stinging. Taking about 10 garlic cloves, and steeping it for about 1/2 hr in olive oil, drain the cloves out and you've got yourself Garlic Oil! Which is just as effective and not so burn-y. Good Luck everyone!

I was skeptical in trying the methods, but I took a chance and used the garlic remedy. I only applied it for a couple of hours and took it off. I burned the moles that I have and it also gave me a scar on my face. But it removed the moles on my shoulder and also on my forehead. I still have a mole on my face but it seems to be shrinking and I'm content with it. If anyone tends to try the garlic on their face, please make sure you apply it on the mole and not have the garlic touch your face. Thanks for the remedy, Im satisfied with the results.
