Don't try it: Sorry. Surgery or laser are your options, or leave it alone. Your physician should see it in any case to be sure it's not melanoma or something else dangerous. The stuff you read on the internet (garlic, banana peels, strawberries, and of course apple cider vinegar, which supposedly cures everthing) is just silly, made-up stuff.

Scarring: This could be scarring. There's no cream which is effective for this. If the scar is growing, you should go back to your doctor.
