While professional methods do exist for getting rid of moles, they can be costly, painful, and even leave behind scars. Moles in themselves can be a bit unsightly but is still bearable when seen in public; however scarring from surgery can be even more embarrassing. If your mole is not a precondition to something serious like cancer, try some home remedies for moles using items you can easily find around the house.
How effective they are can vary, however, you may be pleasantly surprised at just how well some work. You can easily whip up a home remedy with just a few items found in your refrigerator. Home remedies using onions have been known to work for treating moles. It doesn’t matter whether you use a store-bought onion juice or if you have extracted it yourself, just apply it to the mole daily.
Garlic cloves can also be used over several nights. Garlic contains sulphur, so by directly applying a slice of garlic to the mole with the help of a band-aid, it can begin working on the mole to eventually eliminate it. You can also crush the garlic before securing it with the band-aid around the mole to extract more juice from it. If you crush it though, there is a possibility of burning the skin surrounding the mole if you leave it on for too long. To avoid this, just apply a layer of petroleum jelly to the surrounding skin to prevent the garlic juice from seeping in.
You can try grapefruit instead if you prefer something a little milder. Just get some of the fruit and extract the juice from it, which you can then apply to the mole. It can take as long as a month to eliminate the mole since it is rather mild, even when applied daily. Use the onion or garlic remedies every other day if you want something a little faster while avoiding the effects that burn the skin.
To make sure that the mole is not a precondition to cancer, consult with your doctor before starting any form of home remedy treatment. Feel free to try out any remedy you want once you are given the doctor’s go signal. There are other remedies as well that you can try, each with varying efficacy from the other.
