I have to agree! I applied black salve to a mole a few years ago, trying to get rid of it, and the stuff did burn it off, but in a strange irregular way that kind of scared me. Fortunately the mole was on my hip so not a very noticeable location, but the weird uneven shape of it after using the black salve really bothered me, so I ended up going into a dermatologist and having it removed surgically. And there is still a scar there because the salve damaged a lot of the surrounding skin! I would say be very, very careful with this stuff, use it sparingly if you must use it at all, and never put it anywhere near your face.
