Many people live with moles on their face, back or other regions of their body, because they appreciate that cosmetic surgery is out of their price range. They simply believe there is no alternative. Fortunately there are other ways to remove them at little expense, just your time and a little patience is needed. All of the following methods can be performed from the comfort of your own home and do not require any specialist knowledge. Whichever mole removal method you try, do bear in mind it take a little time for the process to complete.
Method #1 Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a readily available food product used in the kitchen. It can be purchased at food stores and maybe your local delicatessen. In mole removal it is used externally. As a safety precaution, test for skin allergy by dabbing some on a skin plaster and sticking it on, in a not too prominent area for a 24 hour period prior to proceeding. If there is no adverse reaction you can proceed. Start with a less obvious mole first if you are a little nervous.
To start the process you need to scratch/abrade the surface of the mole you want to remove. You do this to allow the apple cider vinegar to penetrate the mole. Start with one mole. You don’t need to make it bleed, but if it does just dab it dry and add a few drops of apple cider vinegar to the mole surface and keep in place with a sticking plaster. You should feel a stinging sensation. Repeat this process several times until you observe a reaction taking place. A scab will form after a few days and you will see further changes taking place within the mole. It will not look pretty for a while so keep covered if you wish, but change the dressing daily. Eventually the scab will drop off to reveal fresh new skin. Do not pick the scab off, let it drop off naturally.
The timescale for this procedure can vary depending on your reaction to the substance used. Expect it to take several weeks to complete. The area will be a little reddened and tender for a while, but should not leave a scar. Do protect it from direct exposure to the sun until the area becomes acclimatized.
Method #2 Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree oil is a well known essential oil extracted from wild plant found in Eastern Australia. It has been used by the indigenous population for hundreds of years as a medical herb. Having anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties, it has been commercially produced since the 1920’s and became standard issue for Australian troops in the wars. It was used to treat open wounds and prevent fungal infections in trench conditions, so is safe to apply to the skin. Tea Tree Oil is readily available from stores, pharmacies and online.
The process for mole removal using Tea Tree Oil is exactly the same as in method #1. Few people have an allergy to this oil, but it is advisable to do the allergy test first as a precaution. Due to the powerful medicinal properties of this oil, there is little chance of infection, but cleanliness is still important during the procedure.
Method #3 Baking Soda
Using baking soda for removing moles may sound a little strange, but it works. You must use baking soda, not baking powder and certainly NOT caustic soda, which is extremely hazardous. Mix a little baking soda with a few drops of clean water to create a paste and apply to the abraded mole as described above. Just follow a similar procedure to the earlier methods until the reaction takes place. You should feel a slight stinging sensation when you apply the paste. This is not painful, but shows that it is working. After care remain the same as before.
