There are many different ways you could try to remove an unwanted mole, such as:
* Apple Juice
* Baking Soda and Caster oil
* Onion Juice
Over the counter Treatments:
* Herbal Treatments
* Mineral Salts
* cut off surgically
* burnt off
* frozen off
However when it came to removing ugly moles/sun spots from my body I decided to use my own method of removal:
Burning off Moles with a Soldering iron:
* Soldering iron-Clean/Sterile, ensure it has a small tip as large tipped soldering irons may cause damage to surrounding skin.
* Alcohol wipes
I must however state that the moles/spots I chose to remove appeared ‘normal’ in that they were not irregular in shape or colour and what I considered to be risk free of being cancerous.
Obviously, anything that appeared odd I would leave and have it looked at by a specialist.
I must state again that I am in no way suggesting that anyone else do what I do, I am not a specialist in this field and would recommend seeing a specialist before treating anything on your skin.
For the initial removal I will post here I used an assistant as it was on my head, and I obviously needed help to remove blemishes from my head/back/back of legs etc.
-Ensure the soldering iron is clean by using cloth/tissue soaked in antiseptic, steel wool may even be used if the tip has some old residue built up on it.
If the iron was too dirty I would then consider replacing it with a new one.
-Switch on soldering iron allowing it to warm up.
Place it on a heat resistant surface when not in use, eg I use a plate or saucer.
On this occasion I chose to remove a mole from my head:
-Ensure plenty of antiseptic wipes on hand, don’t use tissue or toilet paper as some may be left on the wound.
-Wipe the area to be treated with an antiseptic wipe.
-Now all I was doing was removing the mole/ freckle/sun spot which is basically on the surface of the skin or just under the surface, so I did not have to go too deep.
-What I simply did was give a few light taps to the mole.
The mole or surface of the skin kind of melts/shrivels away with the heat.
-This was only very fast and light taps on the skin, just to transfer some heat into the skin, if I was to hold the iron on the skin too long it would become quite painful and I guess could do some significant damage and cause significant scarring.
-Usually after a few taps 3-5 I would simply give the skin a wipe with the alcohol wipes and usually the top layer of skin would come off and generally the mole with it.
If a mole was not removed after around 10 taps, I would simply leave it as I considered it too deep to remove.
I would then clean the area and leave it to heal over the next 1-2 weeks, ensuring to keep the area clean as it healed.
-What I discovered many times was that even if the mole was not removed and I considered it too deep, as the scab fell off the entire mole would be removed.
I believe the heating process kind of killed the mole or in fact the scab that formed ‘suffocated’ the mole and it would then be removed with the scab.
