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.
Iodine Tincture and Scratch Method
This method works for me 90% of the time. Occasionally I have to do it twice if the mole starts to come back. I do this with slightly raised and tiny flat moles on my face if they appear from sun exposure (yes, I wear sunscreen daily).
I scrape the mole with a new toothpick (not a needle) until it turns pink and I can see the top layer of skin is off (avoid the surrounding area, you only want to scratch the mole).
Then I apply iodine tincture (which stings very much) and apply it 2x daily until it scabs over (usually within 1-2 days). I leave the scab on for 2 days until I deem it ready enough to pull off without causing excessive pain or trauma to the skin. Even when it's scabbed over I apply the iodine 2x daily.
Once I deem it ready to peel off with ease, I pull it off and then apply the tincture again (which still hurts a lot). At this point the skin doesn't scab anymore and instead turns into a pink dot on my face. I continuously apply the tincture daily until the dot is near disappearing- then I stop. At which point the mole is gone and now the skin only has to heal. (Keep in mind, it doesn't look bad- just like a pink dot). 2-3 weeks after it heals I'll be able to tell whether or not it's gone for good. If it starts to come back (it will start to look like a darkening freckle) I repeat the process until it's gone for good. Most of the time it only takes 1 time, at most 2. I never repeat the cycle in the same month. Only every 2-3 if it comes back.
It WILL come back if you get a lot of sun exposure in the area so wear sunscreen and protect your skin. :)
Thank you for publishing information about this cures. I used iodine and Hydrogen peroxide on 2 moles and got free of them. The first was pea-size and it was cleared after 2 weeks in May and June. It healed, but the skin is still pink. The second mole was 3mm in diameter . I painted it with Iodine once a day for 3 days. Then I soaked it with Hydrogen peroxide for about 15 minutes, I poked it with a pin and it burst, something white drop off and the pink skin appeared . There was no scab, it still hurts, but I am happy I got rid of it. Thank you earth clinic.
Hi, I've had a 1cm raised mole under my bra strap for many years. Decided to try to get rid of it. Over a 2 week period I applied iodine (Lugol's solution) about 4 times and applied tt oil every day... Sometimes twice a day. When I applied the tto I could feel gritty material coming away as it broke up. I think the iodine actually "killed" the thing though. Only took 2 weeks! Good luck everyone! Ann.
Hi, I have recently applied malt vineger and vitamin c powder to 4 moles on my face and 1 on my arm. I followed what I needed to do correctly, using a sterilized needle to scratch the moles and file. Then applied the vinegar and vitamin c powder. After scratching them with the needle and file, it stung a bit then I put a band aid over them and went to sleep.
I did scratch quite a lot of the moles off in the first day but this was every couple of hours. Some times they would bleed only slightly, and majority only dead skin tissue of the moles would come off.
They have gone flat and turned into scabs, it's just making me feel a bit sick all day. And the treatment area is flat brown or black however it has gotten slightly bigger. But I assume this is part of the healing process. Some of the surrounding skin healing too. Is this normal?
I would also like to know how do you know what the root of the mole is supposed look like and how deep can they go so I know what to look for so I get the whole mole. So it doesn't grow back again. Other wise I've wasted my time on these moles
Plus if you don't get the root can the moles get bigger when growing back?
Oh yeah do I wait till the scabs drop off and repeat the process?
Thank you in advance.
This advice works for me. I only recently found this blog. Moles are something I thought I was doomed to have the rest of my life. Since giving up artificial sweeteners, wheat, and corn my body has been growing these things like crazy. Their favorite spot in underneath my breasts. I have been using vinegar as a topical treatment and taking 500mg of niacin, 100mg of B-100, and 50mg of Zinc. My order of DMSO just arrived and I will begin using it today. This is day 6 in this regimen and I am happy to report there are two moles drying up and flaking away from my skin without any scaring, soreness, or mess. I had no idea.
I've had a mole on the back of my neck for years. I am from NZ with very high rates of UV. At one stage the mole became very large ( I would assume from UV exposure), I saw a doc and he said it was not cancerous and cut it off. Since then it has stayed flat ( I am in Europe). Recently due to my dentist not opting to take xrays for his own health I have had major dental problems and work. This had upset my neck which is not in a good state. I decided to get a radio and IRM of my neck. 2 days after these examinations I found that the mole had ballooned in a frightening manner. I phoned the lab; that did the examinations and they said that 'of course this has nothing to do with the xrays or IRM'. What a bunch of rubbish. Really my faith in the medical system is at an all time low between the non ethical dentist and professionals who won't recognise possible side effects.
I would use salycilic acid instead. works faster. go to christoph5241 mole removal on you tube.
MOLE REMEDY: I had moles scattered all over my body (up to my face). They first start out like tiny specks and begin to expand over time. Some were as big as maize seeds. The remedy was to scratch the surface with a sharp object and apply salt (regular kitchen salt). You begin to see results after two days and whatever scars appear initially fizzle out over time. I may not know if it worked for me because am black.
I recently bought a bottle of cellfood at my local health food store. I researched the uses and one of the things that they said it did was to remove moles, warts, etc. So after washing my face, I cut off the end of a q-tip and dipped the end in a drop of cellfood. I applied it directly to the moles that I had on my face. Just barely touching the mole with the cellfood, I did this several times during the evening. You have to be very careful as it can burn the surrounding tissue. It blows my mind that this morning two of my moles are gone and after another application tonight, I'm sure the other two will be gone by tomorrow morning. I removed one mole using the ACV method and it took several nights to remove and longer to heal, but this process was amazing. It is also great for burns and small cuts. BUT, there is some burning involved..... Nothing that cannot be tolerated... More like an irritation. I know this is not a cheap product, but what it can do is worth it.
