Don't Try This At Home--Mole Removal
No, I don't recommend you trying to remove this yourself because it could cause scarring. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. This can be improved or removed with lasers, radiowave or shave. Best, Dr. Emer
This is an interesting question. I have seen scores of letters here that support the idea that the vinegar can cause enough inflammation to either partly or totally remove skin lesions, however, there is a problem. If you try to treat a melanoma with vinegar, you might be doing a great deal of harm to yourself.
There is an old saying that any physician who treats themselves has a fool for a patient. I think that goes double at times for non-physicians.
