He used to have 2 moles on the side of his forehead, one raised and one flat, both really dark. As of a month or so ago, he's only got one flat one (I don't know if it was the originally flat one or not) and it's really light. It works on scars too, and I can vouch for that (as long as they're completely healed). I'm sure it's just the oils and whatnot that's in there, but I don't know how else my dad could have possibly gotten rid of his moles, so I say it's worth a try.
I also heard lemon juice works too, but I haven't tried it at all.


I don't particularly care about moles but I do have one on my arm that got gross looking because of a boil. I'm definitely going to have to test the vicks theory - thanks!

there is no "natural" way to remove moles. Removing moles is actually "unnatural" since its a natural part of our bodies. SO THIS IS DEFINITELY A JOB FOR A DOCTOR TO DO. Its quick, painless, and you get anti scarring and anti infecting creams to TREAT IT.

Its not a "surgery" necessarily, it takes like 2 seconds to complete, without the risks of scarring and infection. Which is worse than the mole was to begin with. Its NOT expensive, and its YOUR BODY! Treat it with respect.

ive had 2 moles removed.
partly because they were very annoying.
They werent huge, but one was on my neck and would get caught on seatbelts. and the other was kind of above my armpit so bra straps would catch it, they would bleed sometimes.
& i read that some can have melanoma, usally if they get bigger, or itch alot. which they did.

So... it was free.. & i thought , what the hell.
the doctor injected just where the mole was with a anasthetic, and then with what is pretty much a soldering iron, just burnt it off. its then like a scab, and heals.
i have a little scaring, but, its way more comfortable. :)
and i like to tell people i got stabbed witha cigarette if they ask.. makes me seem tough.. :P
till i tell them the truth. shhhhh.

I've been thinking about this lately, got a mole which my man accidentally half scratched off that I want gone, and a few others.

I had a few removed when I was little, the doctor used this pressurised can of stuff and literally froze them off... no pain relief given but it wasn't too bad.

I've also had them burned off with like a heated wire loop that closed around it (this one was too big for freezing) , my body decided to produce too much scar tissue n now i have this reasonably flat but rather large dense area on my shoulder far bigger than the mole was :roll: .

So I'd try vicks and some other things that were suggested but I have little faith.. think I'll go get this one frozen off too.
I'm just a venereal girl, living in a venereal world...

There was an instructable I saw a few years ago with a DIY freeze spray for wart remover. A mole is not a wart, and it will probably be a lot more sensitive to any manipulation, though. I thought the DIY freeze spray was funny, though.

Lemon juice or apple cider vinegar are both acids that will destroy both the mole or wart and the healthy skin around it. I knew that and still tried the ACV until my skin was reddened and had little scabs. No change in the mole, though. The idea is that you get some cotton fluff and saturate it with ACV, then tape directly on the flesh you want removed. You don't want it to dry out, so duct tape or even cellophane tape will work okay. Wear it as long as you can, which might be four hours or might be all day, then do it again the next day. The word is that after several days, the offending bit of flesh will blacken and fall off.

I have lassoed skin tags with dental floss and plucked them off. Those are less likely to bleed than normal moles and are usually in areas that they can get pulled off anyway. Like under arms or ... That's it. Under my arms mainly. Oh I think I have one in the antecubital fossa of one arm, the inner of your elbow. Nothing I'm worrying about though.

i am not suggesting this by any means, but i did recently burn a mole off a friend with my cigarette. it's funny so many of you mentioned this.
i, too, have been told that since moles are skin cells that grow "abnormally," that the risk of them becoming malignant is greater than on the rest of your skin. i hate to break it to ya, love, but there is no "quick fix" for stuff like this. i'd suggest you start saving your pennies in a "mole removal" jar, and go to the doctor.
best of luck.

Oh my god, I know!

Moles can indicate skin cancer or other serious skin problems. ESPECIALLY if you've noticed that a mole has changed (different size, different colour, etc). What would you rather: going to a dermatologist to have something checked out and treated quickly or pulling some crap "remedy" off the internet and finding out in 5 years that you have serious, serious problems? Chances are a mole is fine, but the only person who should be removing a mole is a trained doctor!

I too am a fan of my moles. (They're mostly just the little flat ones that look kind of like freckles there is one in the corner of my eye (obviously not on my eye) that is slightly up off the skin, but I like that one too. :D I'm not a fan of zits though or Rosasea (sp?). That's a different thread.
if awesome is a crime... guess that makes me a criminal...
