Hydrogen Peroxide for Moles: This is truly a miracle and it works in a matter of days..I had several large moles on my face for over 20 years and about a year ago I tried the baking soda and castor oil treatment.It worked on the two of the moles i had near my eyes but it took almost three weeks and it really burned my skin..I still have a small raised area that did not totaly go away that bothers me .I had another mole on the side of my nose that I wanted removed, but I did not want it to take 2-3 weeks for that to happen so i tried the Hydrogen Peroxide.

I make sure that the surface of the mole was smooth by filing it down with a nail file and i applied a layer of vaseline around the area then i applied the peroxide with a cotton ball several times untill it was saturated and white .This does burn quiet a bit, but so did the the other treatment I had tried.I applied the peroxide sevearl times during the day and after I let it dry I applied aloe vera from my plant to the area to help with the burning..the next morning I noticed that the mole was less than half the size and it had turned black so I knew it working..With-in two days of using this method it was completed gone on a small patch of dry red skin and I have treated that with aloe vera..I wish I would of known about this 20 years ago..I feel more confident now that I have removed those ugly moles from my face and the cost has nothing really things that I already had at home.I have a couple of small flatted areas that I will work on next..I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to remove stubborn moles in a hurry

I have a mole on my back, should I pore some of the hydrogen peroxide in my bath tub and have it soak it and how many days should I do that so it can disappear for good?

A nevus is little black pigmented spot on the skin, sometimes called a beauty spot. Mine was flat, about 6-7 mm in diameter and near my neck and slightly elevated. It's been there for probably 20 years.

I dipped a q-tip in 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide and applied it to the nevus only for a few seconds and then mopped the excess with the dry end of the q-tip. It burned a little, especially on later applications. I applied liquid vitamin A a few minutes afterwards to decrease the burning and promote healing. I did 3-4 applications over a period of a week. It fell off completely after a week and has not returned. My wife was very impressed. I'm not recommended this approach, but simply reporting my personal experiment. I've been experimenting with Bill Munro's inhaling approach for a little over a week. It appears to be working well. My energy has just about doubled and I'm breathing much better at night.

NOTE: I don't know what the laws are and I don't want to get sued. Use my information at your own risk. I'm just trying to help in any way I can, because NOONE should have to go through what I went through - numbing devastation and fear. If this helps you PLEASE spread the word!

3 skin cancer growths on my face cured in a WEEK of applying Hydrogen Peroxide on them - HOW YOU APPLY could mean the difference between EFFECTIVE, or NOT (read further for detailed explanation). (NOTE: I use a lot of repetition, to make sure you understand exactly what I'm referring to.)

I would definitely recommend trying this before you try bloodroot.

THANK GOD!! WOW! I'm still shocked it worked and it took only a WEEK!!! How is this possible that people don't know about this and a truth so simple is not known by everyone is beyond me.

My story and how I used Hydrogen Peroxide 3% to cure my skin cancers: Over the period of two years two cancerous growths appeared on my face (nose); one of them was growing very slow the other one faster. Then in less then a year another one appeared on my face as well - on the side of my nose very close to my eye. That one was growing at an alarming rate. All those growths hurt with unusual intensity when touched and had tiny veins but they were not moles. They were kind of the color of my skin except more red and at times really red. I applied just about every fruit on them I could think of with what seemed no effect. I was getting worried and felt helpless. I begged God to help me and I searched a lot. I found this great site and read that there have been reports that Hydrogen Peroxide cured melanoma. I was going to try the eggplant and white vinegar remedy, but was worried about the fumes from the vinegar being so close to my eye. So I decided to try the Hydrogen Peroxide first. At first it didn't seem to have any effect at all. I was getting so worried by that point because the spot close to my eye was growing even faster and by then it was about 5 millimeters in diameter and just few months ago it was a tiny spot. In my helplessness.


I took a cotton swab and soaked it in Hydrogen Peroxide and kept rubbing the cancerous growth with the Hydrogen Peroxide soaked cotton swab until the growth was soaked in the Hydrogen Peroxide and was white. It stung badly, but I didn't care, I just wanted these things gone. I was so desperate, my eyes watered every time I looked at the spots on my face. After the soaking of the growths I applied cotton soaked in Hydrogen Peroxide on them. NOTE: when soaking the skin with Hydrogen Peroxide make sure you don't do it to the healthy skin, because even though it is more resistant to getting white and soaked with the Hydrogen Peroxide, it will also get white after a while. If healthy tissue gets white like that, let it air out until it regains its normal color. So do the soaking to the unhealthy tissue only or as close as you can get. After soaking and making it white apply soaked in Hydrogen Peroxide cotton ball on the growth and when the cotton gets dry, wet it with more Hydrogen Peroxide. How it worked was: the soaked cancerous growth after a while formed as crust much like what happens with a normal sore. The strangest thing is I see no scars it flattened it out like it was never there..IN A WEEK!!! Even the fast growing one!! I'M STILL IN SHOCK. I tried SO many things. THANK GOD. THANK GOD!!!

In my previous email to you, I forgot to mention:

1. I stopped drinking tap water and started drinking purified water when I was doing my Hydrogen Peroxide therapy.

2. I tried applying the Raspberry Skin Cream well known to cure skin cancer to the cancerous growths on my face for weeks, but it didn't work for me - I noticed no difference. I have heard the Raspberry Skin Cream worked well for many people after about two weeks.

3. Also I forgot to mention when I started my Hydrogen Peroxide I also started using air purifier that is running 24/7 in my bedroom.

Did you have to scratch/prick the mole before applying the hydrogen peroxide?

Question: I've read and heard that Hydrogen Peroxide can cause scaring. Does anyone experience scaring that did not go away when using Hydrogen Peroxide to remove moles? Thanks

So here it goes!

I am 18 years old and i had a mole on my cheek 5mm in diameter and slightly elevated. I wanted it desperately removed since i got it(5 years old), so when i was 15 i went to the dermatologist to have it removed. The dermatologist performed a shaving of the upper layer and then an electrocauterization(pretty painful). She told me to revisit her in 15 days. Well i went there after 15 days and guess what, the mole was still there.

She told me to come back in 3 months time because it was summer and she couldnt repeat the surgery again due to the sun. Because it would make my mole worse. I watched it over the summer getting a bit better. The swelling had gone away and it was a bit lighter. So i went to my dermatologist some days before the school started. The same procedure except for the shaving occured and i must admit that it was much better than before. The swelling went away after 1 month but i realised than not only the mole was there, under my skin this time like a big sun spot, but it was formed like clusters of small moles that looked like a melanoma, a condition also know as pseudomelanoma. In the following year i went to several plastic surgeon and all said that they couldnt remove it without leaving a very visible scar. I was so depressed, i had tried everything. From internet remedies such as lemon juice to expensive creams containing hydroquinone and other harmful chemicals only to leave my skin swelled.

I kept fighting my mole desperately till on month ago. I was doing a project on chemistry for the school. My research at that day was on oxidisers, so i came across hydrogen peroxide. That molecule was so fascinating. So i decided to research more on it. As i was searching a came across some articles about hydrogen peroxide and moles. I told my self, here is someting i havent tried yet. I searched on google and i found here at earth clinic may testimonials about mole cures and hydrogen peroxide. I was so amazed! It could even cure melanoma! So after extensive searching i decide that i should give it a try!

I went at the pharmacy and bought 3% hydrogen peroxide.

I then went home and soaked a piece of cotton a little bit bigger than my mole and kept rubbing it on the area for 10 minutes. Then i rinsed the area with water and applied a cotton soaked with aloe vera juice. I did this for 3 days 3 times a day and kept a cotton soaked with aloe juice overnight. At first hydrogen peroxide seemed that it did nothing but after the second application the area started to bubble and at the second day it started to sting. As i woke the third day a scab had formed. I decided not to mess with it because it would increase chances of scaring. After 9 applications of hydrogen peroxide for ten minutes then aloe(as much as the cotton soaked with aloe stayed wet) and then overnight applications of aloe i stopped using hydrogen peroxide. I kept using aloe overnight though until day five. Then i started applying petrolium jelly on the scab as often as i could, sometimes overnight to minimize scaring as i works like silicone sheets which are very costly(i also used petrolium jelly on the area everytime i would bath). 3 day ago(15 day after the treatment with hydrogen peroxide started) i woke up and noticed i had little to no scab and that at the place where the mole was i had skin which was a bit pink. I was stunt! I said, wow it actualy worked! And here i am 18 days after the first application completly healed :D. I am very thankful for earthclinic because it changed my life my this remedy!

Thank you earthclinic!! :D

I have had good results with iodine painted on moles. From one huge black mole to a barely noticeable light brown mark now. I painted on the iodine at night, after a few weeks I was away on holiday and when I came back was not as regular with the routine but the mole was fading. I stopped for a while and the mole just kept on fading. I will start again now and see if the last bit disappears.

I'd really like to understand if it's safe to use Lugols 15% on moles? After reading up here I did try to apply on a cotton bud but found it almost impossible to get the stuff out of the bottle! Also, someone said to use Vaseline around the surrounding area but that made it impossible for the iodine to "stick" at all. In the end, I had to try to get some on my finger and dab directly but that resulted in iodine touching a lot of surrounding skin. Would really appreciate more detail on how to use the stuff and whether 15% lugols is okay (undiluted) every day. It did not sting at all BTW. Want to use daily on foot moles and raised breast moles and breast mass. Please help someone - need more guidance to get this right.

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.

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.

Did you apply it with a q-tip? I'm doing that currently for the past 3 days. I have seen no noticible changes.

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.

What Iodine were you using? (the %)
And was it a raised mole?..

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'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's's sooo old fashioned. Don't let the embarrassment of orangey skin stop your 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.

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!
