Compound to remove moles
Thank you for your question. It is not safe to remove moles with compounds. Moles are like an iceberg where you only see the tip of the iceberg. A mole actually goes fairly deep into the skin. An excision is the only way to completely remove a mole and should be completed by a board certified physician. Compounds can burn the skin, cause infections, and scarring. I recommend for you to see a doctor if you desire to have these moles removed. If the moles are bothering you (as you had mentioned) insurance will typically pay for a shave removal. I wish you the best!
