Three weeks ago I had a bcc or a scc on my finger & ACV along with prayer to Jesus healed it. I dipped half of a circular gauze in ACV & wrapped on top of my finger secured with bandaids throughout the day where spot occurred. After a few days a black dot appeared on spot along with tentacles & red/inflamed areas. Throughout the next two weeks tentacles continued around my finger & it was painful as I continued the ACV during the day but at night applied alba Botanica plant jelly, colloidal silver & vitamin c powder on gauze secured with bandaids. At two & a half weeks all tentacles healed but one or two so I stopped applying soaked gauze on finger. Instead applied ACV with q tip on the tentacle along with clotrimazole (Lotrimin/anti-fungal). Miraculously my finger has healed & I thank the Lord for this!

Question Re: Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil for BCC

scott (FL) on 06/04/2024

BCC on Face

With home treatments apple cider vinegar or baking soda in coconut oil how to treat and when to stop are imprecise. Will the lesion heal while being treated? Do you treat until there is no or little reaction from the tissues? Is the opening up and bleeding a normal part of the process?

Apple Cider Vinegar Use On Skin Cancer

Hello! I have been using ACV on a suspected skin cancer now for several days. The spot (about the size of a half dollar) is turning red and starting to scab. The scabbing is black in a few parts, but most yellow. And it is throbbing when I soak it with the ACV. I have done several soaks per day, and have also hit it with Hydrogen Peroxide at night, followed by some Aloe.

For those than have used ACV, what kinds of scabs formed? And was their throbbing during use? It is painful, but not overbearing. I am curious what kind of progressing I should / can expect. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Apple Cider Vinegar on moles

I first tried the ACV on my arm as I had a large brown freckle that was growing darker and becoming slightly raised. I did a few sessions of covering it with some ACV on a bit of cotton wool and covering it with a band aid. It got red and sore and scabbed up. I left it for a while and then repeated the process and the next time it became very dark and scabbed up again. Once the scab came off it was normal skin underneath. It was slightly pink but I then would just dab a bit on after each shower until it completely disappeared. You wouldn't even know it had been there. I also have a small spot by my nose that comes up every 6-12 months, so I dab a bit on for a week or so and it disappears. I now have one funny sore that has come up on my leg about March this year. I thought it was just an ingrown hair, but it doesn't seem to want to go away and can be very sore and bleed. I think it's a BCC so I'm hoping and praying the process will work on this. I am going to start ingesting ACV everyday as well. Will follow up on how it goes. I've been treating my leg this last week for 2 days then gave it a break for 4 days and the sore has gotten smaller but my leg has felt quite achy. I am going to go hard out now for the next week using it every day and see how it goes. I am scared to go to the doctor as I've heard how having surgery can make them spread. I have a lot of moles I want to focus on in 2024 and see how many I can shrink!! Wish me luck:)

Trying Other Remedies After Curaderm Failed for BCC or SCC

Elle (New Zealand) on 09/08/2023

BCC or SCC - Trying baking soda/coconut and ACV after curaderm failed.

Hi, this is my first post. I've had a legion for a few years now, too scared to get a biopsy after hearing they will spread the cancer plus once in the medical system they'l suggest chemo cream, radiation and MOHS for which my legion is too big for. I have used curaderm for a few years which has kept it under control but suddenly out of nowhere it started to spread so freaking out. Doing extensive research including on here have started with the baking soda/coconut oil, but will add in ACV at night now too.

For the first two weeks its stung like all hell when I applied it and was trying to not keep it covered but think I now have to. It's a hell of a thing trying to hide cause its right on my shoulder so have a new summer wardrobe to try accommodate hiding this thing while treating it. Soooo after a couple hours reading on here today, I can add there is a hole where the original growth was, maybe 1cm by 1cm circle and a few little others have popped up around the area - scares the crap out of me but Ive read a few people here today say that normal and its pulling out the other legions.

Going to take apricot kernels, curcumin, serrapeptase and anything else I can throw in and be in a positive mindset - an affirmation I'm using is "life and death lies in the power of the tongue"... I've recently lost my child so my whole world was turned upside down and maybe the stress of that has accelerated things but hoping for the best and refuse to go down the medical cut/poison/burn technique. I do have black salve but would rather try this first. My new hubby doesn't understand so hiding from him as best I can but naysayers would never understand and I've read too many stories now of horrendous mohs etc only to have them grow back! Wish me luck, please and prayers my way as life hasn't been kind to me lately x

Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda, Peroxide for Basal Cell Carcinoma

James (Texas) on 08/17/2023

I had a spot about the size of a small fingernail on my scalp, and after finding info on ACV, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda, I made a paste of the three together and applied it to the area and covered that with a band-aid. Within a few days, I noticed the area became covered with a soft sticky yellowish scab-like material (called's normal). I did try carefully to wipe that off, but realized it is actually part of the tissue, so I continued applying the paste, and eventually the area became covered with a dark, almost blackened scab-like material. What I realize now, or at least what I think was/is happening, is that the paste is getting down into the cancer cells and they start to die off, so the area is going to look rough for a while. Obviously the paste is doing it's job though. I'd stopped applying it now and then, for a day or two, to see what I could see, and it became obvious that it was working. I could see the skin around the are beginning to draw in as healing was starting. One time, because I thought I saw an bit of odd discoloration along one outer area, I reapplied the paste-mixture and covered that too, just to be safe and to be sure I got to the very roots of the cancer cells. I reapplied the paste each day, maybe twice if I could, and let it do its work, and now I'm pretty sure the discoloration was a bad area because the paste got down into that area too and it repeated the above process.
To be frank, I maintained this for 30+ days (though the entire experience was 2-3 months worth) and I think it was all worth it as an alternative to having surgery and a big scar on my head. I took ongoing pictures of the area and created a simple video to show the progress. Yes, it seems like a long time in hindsight, but eventually the area began to fully heal and no more questionable areas were to be seen. The doctor (to his great surprise :) rechecked the area and told me no more sign of BCC. Now I only have a small spot where all this went on, but it healed over with natural skin tones and the scar isn't significant (considering all the little dents and dings we have on our heads by the time you're my age)!

So, to me, the ACV is what I think is the strongest factor, and the ACV, Hydrogen peroxide, baking soda mixture is the most powerful paste imho. I also use a Hydrogen peroxide & baking soda-only mixture if I want to apply a less aggressive mix to anything that looks vaguely suspicious. And I drink an occasional teaspoon of ACV in water, since I've read that can help too.

(My disclaimer: this worked for me, ymmv, and definitely check with your doctor. If it had been anywhere else on my body I might have accepted the suggested Mohs surgery and been done with it instantly...but I still keep the above paste/mixtures handy.)

Apple Cider Vinegar for BCC

I’ve used this by my eye (and additional areas on my face), and it became blackened, pitted, itchy, and sensitive. It worked for me and yes it was scary because it’s against everything we’ve been taught to do. Not to mention, how or who do we explain this to if all goes wrong?! I did get headaches and random pains, but I would use this treatment again!!! It’s been 6 years and you can’t tell there was anything there. No scar or mark at all.

I’m currently using it on my upper shoulder for a spot that was “missed” back when I had it surgically removed. This one is pretty deep, but I'm very positive it’ll work. The best advice I can give, is to not stop treatment. In the beginning, I stopped after becoming nervous, and the stupid cancer grew back bigger and more stubborn.

Curaderm Helping BCC on Nose

CURADERM for Basal Cell Carcinoma on nose

Diagnosed with BCC by dermatologist. Booked in for plastic surgery to remove the skin from the ear to do a graft.

I purchased CURADERM. It ate away all the CA & started healing quickly. By Day 40 it was only half the size it had been. Amazing! Then healing of skin appeared to slow down/stop. How do I speed up healing process? Do I only apply once a day? I am 73.

Can one treat sunspots ( as diagnosed by Derm ) with Curaderm?

Hydrogen Peroxide for Skin Cancer

Bill (Freiburg Germany) on 03/29/2023

I have a few small areas of skin cancer on my forehead and ear, which were removed because they were cancerous. I removed one using blood-root, but it was painful and unsightly because of the color of bloodroot, but it never came back. The ones the doctor 'dug out' are coming back. The one on my ear is crusty and itchy. I've started to put 1 drop of 12% food grade H2O2 on each spot 1-2x a day. It burns + hurts about 20 minutes and then it's okay. Does anyone have other suggestions?

Apple Cider Vinegar/Eggplant + for Skin Cancer

jobie (Cottage Grove, MN) on 03/21/2023

Hydrogen peroxide, slather it on until the cancer rises to the surface and looks irritated. Then use a mixture of eggplant/vinegar on the area. There are recipes for this mixture on here, basically, chop up the eggplant, put in a large jar and fill with acv. The mixture can be used after 3 days. Strain off the liquid to use and discard the eggplant. This will also be irritating and more cancer may surface in the area. I don't believe the cancer is spreading, rather it is bringing to the surface what was already there. The skin may turn red, scab over, and cause inflammation which is temporary. After this I use bitter almond oil in very small amounts, (and never to be used internally) on the cancer spots. This soothes the skin and keeps the cancer from further spreading. Do this once a day. It will also help prevent any scarring.

Apple Cider Vinegar for BCC

nole (merced, ca) on 02/06/2023

First off, I was never officially diagnosed with BCC, so I'm not 100% sure this is what I'm treating, but from all the pictures and descriptions I've studied online, it appears so. Very confident in the Apple Cider Vinegar, you can also use white distilled vinegar, but I suspect it may be weaker.

I am about 3 weeks into my treatment and the scabs have still not healed, but I am finally feeling better today after 2 weeks of feeling kinda ill. I started applying Hydrogen Peroxide to the suspected area and it seemed like it was working slowly, so I decided to try the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) method, and it works much faster imo. From my experience you have to hit each area with a cotton pad soaked in ACV for 1 - 1.5 hours per session. It will sting, but that means it's working, I believe. The easiest way is to shave your head bald, this way you can see if you have any other spots. But some spots are invisible, so take a wash rag and soak it in the ACV. Cover your bald head with the rag and apply pressure evenly over scalp. After soaking your scalp 5-10 minutes you will see white spots appear where you need to focus on, so take note of these areas. It wasnt until after treating my first spot that I discovered a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th spot because the vinegar had leaked down and help expose those spots. Now soak each area 1 - 1.5 hours daily for 3-5 days. You will have to power thru the stinging, but that means it is working. When they turn dark brown/black is when you know it is working. You can stop and let them heal a while, but you will probably need to hit them again after a couple - few weeks of healing.

Things that will make it WORSE: Poor diet = sugar, corn syrup, processed foods, carbs, flour, saturated fats (unhealthy meats) STAY AWAY FROM THESE THINGS. I would also stay away from alcohol, cigarettes and any other bad habits for the time being.

Things that will help - Vitamin C, Hot Baths, Good Foods = organic Cruciferous veggies & leafy Greens. walnuts, Almonds, Lemons, Wild Fish(Salmon)

My diet is basically Vegetables, Almonds, Walnuts, Lemon Juice, Lemon rhinds, green tea & distilled water. I had a fruit smoothie today, and it didnt make me feel bad for once. Stay away from breads carbs & sweets and coffee, as coffee lowers Vitamin C levels.. Fruit may be borderline as it contains sugars. Don't buy vitamin C from store (its not real vitamin C), save your citrus peels dry them using only the light bulb from inside your oven (this will dry them out but not be hot as Heat destroys Vitamin C), and grind them up using a food processor to make REAL vitamin C capsules.

Vitamin D? This is the controversial part as some people say you need it, some people say the Vitamin D capsules you buy from store are rat poison. Get your Vitamin D from sunlight? Did the sunlight cause the BCC? So I don't know, it could be some other environmental toxin or possibly Alcohol related that causes BCC.

Today is day 21 of my "treatment" and I have a lymph node that is swollen. Not sure if this is a result of the treatment or something else, but hot showers seem to make swelling go down. I jog 2 miles every morning as exercise gets the lymph juices circulating. I ate a hamburger the other night and felt like crap the next day. Not sure if it was from the meal or just that my body is fighting infection, but I've been eating better since, and I am feeling much better today.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil for BCC

Spice girl (Nelson) on 02/04/2023

Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil:

Have used the described protocol several times now on small BCCs, for 7 days of treatment. It's worked each time.

To reduce the pain, try earthing:

  • Attach an earthing pad to the skin near the treatment area. or put the treated body part on an earthing pad.
    For earthing equipment and how to earth:
  • Make sure that the contact of your skin with the earthing pad is firm.
    E.g. when treating your left shin, lie on your left side with the left leg on the earthing pad and put your right leg onto your left leg for extra weight (the weight of the left leg on the earthing pad by itself wasn't enough for me to take the pain away).

I discovered this by chance. It's cut down half an hour of intense sting from ACV to just 5 minutes, and helped me with the baking soda and H2O2 treatments, too.

H2O2, Oil of Oregano, Clotrimazole for Basal Cell Carcinoma

ChurpyBurd (Malaga, Spain) on 10/05/2022
5 out of 5 stars

Well it's been an excruciating and disfiguring but ultimately victorious four months for me.

It started with an itchy red bump at the left side of my nose - it would clear scab over but wouldn't heal. I remembered my parents had BCC and used an ointment to treat it, and so here I arrived at my go-to site looking for a symptom set and natural remedy.

I treated the bump with H2O2 quite successfully within 2 weeks, but noticed there were other itchy bumps and inflamed spots and so I dug those up with H2O2. They were bigger and deeper. And took longer to heal. My face was on fire. Sometimes the lesions would close over but I could tell from the remaining surrounding inflammation and the tenderness or sharp pain that they were not fully "excavated". I would dig in a little bit with the H2O2 and yup - still there.

After about eight weeks I had cleared areas on about 60% of my face, but the last 40% was just agony. I felt like I was chasing this thing all over my face - no sooner had I cleared a pocket than one just a centimeter away would start to inflame and itch, and a light rub with H2O2 would show a large area of abnormality.

The scabbing and peeling was, I gotta say, monstrous. I haven't had this kind of skin since my acne-infested teens.

I felt like I was missing something.

I read up on oil of oregano to see if it was effective against BCC. Yes, it is. Also coconut oil. Yup that too. I began to treat the most stubborn open lesions with oregano oil and within a week, saw improvement.

I began to reflect on what I know about H2O2, oil of oregano and coconut oil.

First of all - H2O2. If you watch any science youtube content, it talks about how it "explodes" mico-organisms. These are living things that are super-oxygenated and just go "poof" and create the foam. And I was thinking, wait a minute. The BCC cell is abnormal - but WHY is it abnormal? Sure it has sun damage. There's something wrong with its functioning. But H2O2 doesn't make a healthy cell foam. So is there something inside the BCC cell that explodes?

Then I thought about oil of oregano. It is effective against three things: viruses, bacteria and fungi. Why would it be effective against a malfunctioning skin cell? It is neither a bacteria, nor a virus nor a fungus. UNLESS one of those things is living rent free inside the cell. THEN maybe there's a reason why it might kill the cell, or the thing inside it. if it exists.

Then I looked at coconut oil. Is it a fungicide? Why yes it is. It's used as part of treatment against a candida overgrowth. Also I looked at various remedies - the ketogenic diet for instance inhibits the proliferation of candida albicans.

Then I looked at the BEHAVIOUR of this thing, and it was behaving like a plant. You know when you cut off a small outgrowth of a plant, suddenly it responds with a burst of energy and branches out in all directions from the injured part?

I started with a tiny speck on one cheek and within eight weeks my face was covered in weeping lesions, as new spots grew out next to the healed ones.

So I put 2 and 2 together and thought - OK. What if this is a kind of fungus? Some kinds of fungus only grow on bread. Others only grow on toenails. What if there's a KIND of fungus that only grows in sun-damaged skin cells? Mybe we don't know what t is, but why are antifungal treatments so effective against BCC?

So. I started to treat the remaining open lesions with over-the-counter clotrimazole. Within a week, lesions that had been open for six weeks were closed, healed over, and non-inflamed.

I began to treat the small bumps that were arising next to the healed lesions directly with clotrimazole, without opening them up with H2O2. I opened one or two just to be certain, though. Within a week, they had disappeared, but the skin that was sloughing off showed circular pit-shaped "holes" where a fungus had once existed.

So now I'm moving on to some itchy bumps under some of my sun spots on my arms and torso.

Today I had an experience where I was swimming in the sea and there are small fish that will come and nip at your skin. It's ticklish and hilarious. But one was attacking some part of my foot, really giving it a kind of "tearing" effort. I was like "Whoah little dude. What the heck do you see here?" I put my finger to the spot and it was a tiny, almost imperceptible bump. Later I sterilized the area and gave it a good rub with H2O2 and what do you know? It foamed like a champ. Made me wonder what kind of spectrum these little fish actually see. I mean, it was invisible to the eye, barely perceptible to the touch, but that little fish saw "DINNER".

ANyway, that's my story. I hope it helps someone.

Apple Cider Vinegar for BCC

I had a small squamous cell skin cancer on my forearm. It was about 1 1/2 inches across and I've had it for many years. After seeing other people get Mohs surgery and the drastic results of missing skin and stitching and scarring I decided to research other methods. I came across this blog and saw that people were using Apple cider vinegar on their skin cancers.

I have been applying A C V twice a week full strength after thoroughly washing my arm to the site.

Most of the cancer is gone and in its place is a flattened red area. Only a small portion of the cancer remains. I am now applying a drop of ACV Directly to this area. I will hopefully be able to be clear of this cancer soon and will try to update the blog.

Need Help for Eyelid BCC - Multiple Remedies Not Working

G (UK) on 05/12/2022
3 out of 5 stars

I was diagnosed last year with BCC on the right lower eyelid, it is across the waterline so touches my eyeball. The Hospital wanted to remove it, alas after questioning (because you should question everything) it appeared I was not afforded the full details of what they proposed. They lost my trust and faith rapidly and then with the scare tactics and silliness my decision was confirmed to follow my gut and remain true to my beliefs that one can heal anything naturally with the right mediums/environment and tools.

So basically this began approx 5 years ago (Dr told me initially to use baby shampoo clean my make-up correctly nothing to worry about) I know right disgraceful. In the past year, I have used, 7% of Lugol's iodine mixed with a tiny drop of castor oil - stings like hell - it managed to rid 1 nodule but the other remains, alas I did stop using the iodine because my eye was getting so sore.

Since I use daily MSM & colloidal silver mix, every eve at bathtime I smother it with bentonite clay mixed with frankincense water. I was using fullers earth. I have also been applying in the day a thick paste of aluminum free baking soda mixed with the MSM & silver solution - again stings like hell and does hurt my eye creating it to water and then all goes haywire.

I am juicing daily and having 50ml of max strength aloe vera juice. Every morning I drink a teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a glass of filtered water. every evening I drink a tablespoon of diatomaceous earth dissolved in filtered water. I supplement with B3 (Nicotinamide), B12, D3, digestive enzymes, probiotics and NAC. I also mix in my fresh-made green veg juices with my homegrown wheatgrass - moringa, neem, spirulina and chlorella powder - (OMG it's bloody vile but I guzzle it down)

I spray transdermal magnesium on my feet every night at bedtime and I use MCT oil to moisturise my face and neck.

I was trying to take vit c - I have the powder and kept taking it to try and find my max threshold well I can get to around 15-16g per day and still have no toilet issues but my tummy keeps bloating. I am finding that I am suffering stupidly with god awful wind even I wish I could run away from myself it's that bad. I eat salads minimal meat - grass-fed steak once a weak, oily fish 3-4 times a week other than that it's vegetable juices and salad. No wheat, gluten, dairy, soy or potato. I drink plenty of filtered water and homemade herbal teas, mistletoe, cbd shake, dandelion or matcha green tea.

I am very spiritual, I am doing all I can from that aspect too.

Yet still, this ghastly thing won't be on its way. Does anyone have any ideas or has had any success with a BCC so close to the eyeball. I am so tired of trying could use a little inspiration if anyone has any, please.

Many thanks


Flush Niacin for Skin Cancers

Flush Niacin for skin cancers

I went to a dermatologist to have a weird fatty thing removed. Of course they tested it and it was benign. But, reason for this post, they always give you a going over, checking for other spots and he was amazed that I had none at my age and he mentioned sun screen. Told him I've never used it and I never burn or even get pink. Why? Because I've been taking the flush niacin for over 20 years. He said that this is a little known fact, that niacin protects from skin cancers but most people refuse to bear the flush. He also said that they are researching now about using niacin in people with aggressive skin cancers and are finding all good results. He then said that good diets are so very helpful, but most people can't be bothered. Niacin that causes flushing is a natural vitamin that we all need.

At only 500 mg/day, taken just before sleep, I hardly feel the flush anymore. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

The Curaderm Treatment for BCC

Doc (Mayfield, Utah) on 03/15/2022

I started with 3 small lesions at my hairline where basal cells had previously been removed "professionally." After a few stinging weeks, I saw huge progress at those original sites, but the tentacles began erupting across my entire forehead and down the sides of my face. As I continued treatment twice a day, bleeding lesions crossed my cheeks and are now approaching my nose, where I've had two basal cells and one squamous cell removed, and my right cheek has nine lesions down to my chin, with six on the left.

I'm now at 2 1/2 months and am tired of stinging and burning (and spending more and more money on Curaderm). Apparently, I'm atoning for those sunburns, but I'm still hopeful that the result will be spectacular.
