In connection with a small mole on my face I've done a bit of Internet research... and based on that, it is Iodine that is, or appears to be the best for mole removal. Why?
A) Because Iodine never leaves any holes (depressions) in the skin... and B) because based on 15 reports Iodine is a "4.93" on a 5-scale... and also C) because the following alternatives are or appear to be less effective than Iodine: vitamin E, peroxide (H2O2), apple cider vinegar (ACV), bloodroot and garlic.
The details are as follows:
Vitamin E......5.00 /5.00... but there is only 1 report
IODINE.........4.93 /5.00....15 reports
H2O2...........4.67 /5.00... 5 reports
ACV............4.05 /5.00... 153 reports
Bloodroot......3.91 /5.00... 11 reports
Garlic.........3.66 /5.00... 38 reports
According to the above-mentioned 15 reports, with Iodine, the trick is to 1) Rub the mole with a stone or scratch it w/needle before applying iodine 2-3x a day. 2) Gently scratch (softly) before applying iodine at least 3x a day. 3) Scratch it lightly first with a emery nail file before applying the Iodine. 4) Once it turns hard, you can stop applying the iodine. 5) The IODINE is better because it never leaves any holes (depressions) in the skin.
How does "Iodine" compare to "liquid Nitrogen"? Many years ago, using liquid nitrogen, an MD (on State Street, Rockford, IL) removed 10+ moles and or skin tags. There was neither pain nor scars. However, even after 10+ years, there are shallow indentations where those moles and or skin tags used to be. After 10+ years I still get questions... which is not what you want.
Note to myself: Instead of going to a doctor, I should've chosen a holistic approach.. I should've used Iodine.
