For some, a mole may be considered a “beauty spot,” but for others, it’s a little bit unwanted. Then there are the warts and skin tags: definitely unwanted. Some warts can be stubborn: they keep coming back even after surgical removal.
When I was fifteen years old, I noticed a small black spot appearing above the right side of my upper lip. I didn’t like the idea of it there. What I did was I lit a candle, heated a small needle in the flame and then placed the red hot tip of the needle on the mole, burning and digging it out. It worked. However, it reappeared about a year later. I did the same thing again, with the same result.
A few years later, I noticed a big mole appearing on my forehead. I used a different approach to remove this. I soaked a piece of cotton with a lightly acidic substance called aromatic vinegar. I then plastered it on to the mole before going to sleep. With a light burning sensation, the aromatic vinegar ate away the mole and the flesh surrounding it.
The next morning, I peeled off the cotton wool to reveal a small scar where the mole was. I then treated this scar by rubbing olive oil on it until it was completed healed. This mole never returned.
