I have a mole on my face and I tried removing it with apple cider vinegar and now there is a white ring around it?

Wash with water: That's a very innovative treatment attempt! Apple cider vinegar is mild and shouldn't cause any problem, BUT if it dried on your skin it might leave a sugar rim!

If you mess with them they can change. ...Read more

I recently removed a healthy mole with apple cider vinegar and was wondering if there are still cells remaining in my skin and can those turn cancerou?

"Healthy" mole?: How do you know for sure that it was a "healthy" mole and not a cancerous one in the first place? We generally don't like when patients treat themselves, especially with something that could very well be a melanoma, as the worst case scenario. Not to say that it was, of course, but please see a Dermatologist in the very near future. ...Read more

I have some pen point sized moles on my face, around my eyes. I wanted to try apple cider vinegar to remove them. Is this okay?

It's safe: But probably won't work for the "moles". It sounds as if you may have dermatosis papulosis nigra (compare your "moles" to Morgan Freeman). This condition is fairly common, must be pretty annoying but does respond to certain lasers. You should consult a cosmetic dermatologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Getting rid of mole on face with apple cider vinegar was scab now a red circle on face. How to get rid of circle?

Not sure but...: Given that using apple cider vinegar to get rid of a mole is not a standard recommended medical treatment (even though to my surprise it's reported to often help) I have no information to definitively answer your question. Often there is redness after a scab comes off. It will probably get better on its own, but my favorite treatment for skin irritation/inflammation is calendula cream/ointment. ...Read more

Not a treatment : I've never heard of this as a treatment for a mole. If you're concerned about your mole, or more importantly, if there is a change in appearance (the A, B, C's), then you require an examination. And of course, if you want it removed, a dermatologist can assist you in this as well. Good luck. ...Read more

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Not entirely but...: Bragg's is raw/unpasteurized whereas I'm fairly sure Heinz is pasteurized. Pasteurization degrades some nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial. Also, Bragg's is organic whereas Heinz is not, and apples are in the EWG "Dirty Dozen" and high in pesticide residues.
Heinz should have many of the same benefits but, given a choice, I recommend Bragg's. ...Read more
