One of the joys they never tell you about getting older: you end up growing moles in places you never imagined. Or tiny moles that had been there all your life suddenly decide they are tired of not being noticed, so they begin growing. Big. Of course, skin tags, those clear little pieces of hanging skin that like to show up in places where they will bug you the most, can show up anytime, at any age, and usually at the worst time.

Well, the good news is that these are easier to get rid of than you might think. All you need is a little apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is getting a whole lot of attention lately as many studies back up claims that it can help with digestive problems, insulin resistance, obesity, infection, even help prevent cancer. Apple cider vinegar is known to be antimicrobial and is strong enough to stop almost any pathogen that is put in front of it.

There are plenty of studies showing that apple cider vinegar can help improve the metabolic health of obese rats, reduce cholesterol, and helping to break down fat in the body. However, there is no known research of apple cider vinegar working well to remove moles or skin tags.

There are several online testimonials. The largest one comes from a gentleman who had a mole near his hairline. As he aged, his hair receded but the mole grew larger and larger. He posted pictures of his efforts at “removing” the mole with apple cider vinegar and he got amazing results! He literally saw results within days and within 2 weeks, the mole was gone, leaving only a small white mark behind. This was all done with nothing more than some apple cider vinegar and a needle. No pain, no blood, no mole.

Of course this man had already had this mole investigated and was told that it was not cancerous, and that it was nothing more than a benign growth. If you are uncertain about your mole, you should have it checked out by a dermatologist before attempting this method.

There are other stories of people doing the same thing without the needle (although moles have no nerves, so it won’t hurt) however this requires keeping a band-aide on the mole for a minimum of 8 to 10 hours a day. Not the kind of fashion statement you will want to be making at work if the mole is on your face, head, or neck.

    You can do the same thing with a strong concentration of Lugol’s Solution, which is a combination of iodine and potassium iodide in a base of water. Seven percent strength is best for this application but it’s harder to find than the 5% solution, which you can buy online, in limited amounts (limited because some dorks are using it for making drugs). Since so many people are iodine deficient, using the Lugol’s for skin tags would help them in that respect. The application process and results are the same as the ACV, including the tag eventually falling off, though the times may vary. Also, the iodine can be applied 2 or 3 times a day. A drop from the included dropper is actually more than you need, unless the mole is big.
