Mole Removal (Definition)

Mole removal involves excision of a nevus. This could involve either shaving off a raised skin lesion or cutting out a flat skin lesion. This can be done either for cosmetic reasons (unsightly mole) or to rule out skin cancer. I hope this information is helpful. Stephen weber, M.D., f.A.C.S. Lone ...Read more

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! It won't remove moles though. If the white ring remains after you've washed, you should see a physician. But don't mess with moles. Lots of models have them, they make your face interesting. 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?

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 a worst case scenario. Not to say that it was, of course, but please see a Dermatologist in the very near future. ...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 it's own, but my favorite treatment for skin irritation/inflammation is calendula cream/ointment. ...Read more

I have a mole on my forehead and have been told (by a friend) that applying apple cider vinegar will get rid of it, is this safe to do so?

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

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

I wash my hair with head and shoulders once a week, by day three it itching. I don't have dandruff but my skin is very dry. Can I wash my hair with apple cider vinegar?

I wash my  hair with head and shoulders once  a week, by day three it itching. I don't have dandruff but my skin is very dry. Can I wash my hair with apple cider vinegar?

Itchy scalp: Itching of the scalp can have several causes. Dandruff is the most common cause and is believed to be caused by a yeast. Head & Shoulders contains zinc pyrithione, which is an anti-yeast medication. For some, this works well. When there is no redness or scale in the itchy areas, one can try a tar-based shampoo that contains MENTHOL. This works for most persons, but is not so easy to find. ...Read more
