Suggest treatment to remove mole on face

default
Posted on Thu, 19 Jun 2014
Question: I used a home mole removal method a few months ago on a flat mole on my face that is the size of a pencil eraser. I used apple cider vinegar. I am now worried because I have a weird tingling sensation in the area where I removed the mole. The mole is now growing back, I can see small brown spot appearing in the spot I removed it. Should I be concerned about this feeling in my face?

Brief Answer:
nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Vinegar burns the skin tissue that is why you are having tingling sensation.
Don't worry slowly it will decrease.
Moles need to be completely removed using LASER.
Burning with vinegar will not lead to permanent cure.
I would like to see a photograph of the involved area.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and a better line of management.
