Never try to pluck a hair from a mole, as this can cause bleeding and lead to infection.
Some moles can be cancerous, but mostly they are just considered unsightly. There are several simple household remedies for removing them.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Soak a cotton ball in a little apple cider vinegar.
Place it directly on the mole, with a bandage to hold it in place.
Leave it for a few hours, and the mole will gradually fall off.
Baking Soda and Castor Oil
Make a paste from these ingredients, and spread it over the mole.
Cover it with a bandage and leave it overnight.
In the morning, remove the bandage and wash the area thoroughly.
Repeat the same procedure each night.
Smear the skin around the mole with petroleum jelly to protect it.
Put some crushed garlic or garlic extract on the mole.
Cover it with a bandage for about 4 hours.
Repeat this procedure regularly.
