Oregano Oil for Mole Removal HELP?

Postby esmond » Fri Nov 09, 2012 9:33 am

Last week I have started to apply oregano oil with a cotton bud to a raised mole above my lip. About 3 times a day. The mole has become crusty and i accidently picked off the scab. Now the area is still raised, but the black spot itself is almost gone, just a few little spots. BUT the area around the mole has become all red. i think the oregano oil literally burns the skin layers off.
And now its turned into an open wound, and sometimes it leaks clear fluid.
I dont think I am doing this right.
Any other mole removal theories?
I really want this to work because i have like 40 + moles (not freckles) on my face, and more of them appear like daily.
How can i reduce the redness caused by the oil?

Thanks in advance

Oregano Oil for Mole Removal HELP?

There are good moles and there are bad moles. Elizabeth Taylor has good mole, and when I had a pimple that never went away, it was in the same area where Liz' mole was, I felt blessed! But, it got infected because I picked on it & picked on it when it got bumpy, it had been on my face for 4 years. One year it didn't get bumpy, so it was flat for one year after that. I picked on it again, and now it's flat and it's almost faded - like any acne on our faces!!!! But usually, I even try to darken it with eyebrow pencil. I've always have clear complexion, but I noticed when it gets cloudy I couldn't protect myself from the heat, so that's why it got bumpy again.

My aunts, my mom and two of mom's in-laws have the same chin moles like you described, since they were teenagers. When they have photos together, you could say they could have been separated from birth! I'm not making this up.

I had a mole on my thigh that was throbbing. It was the size of a pencil eraser. Dermatologist told me it wasn't cancer, but I had it removed (3 stitches) but it got infected. I couldn't keep water from it when I take a shower and it left me a 1 1/2" scar, but it was still throbbing. My other dermatologist injected something around it, and it got flatter, but the throbbing stopped. That was 6 years ago, but the throbbing starts again, but the scar is almost gone. I should have left it alone, but the throbbing was annoying me!

Google A Death by Suntan by age 26, Yahoo Shine 3-23-10. In April 2005, while working out at her college gym in Rhode Island, 22-year-old Glenna Kohl detected a hard, golf ball-size lump near her groin. . . . .In high school, Glenna did have an irregular mole removed from her leg. A pathology report identified it as benign, but the surgeon tested it again. The lab had made an error: The mole was an early stage melanoma.

Ewan McGregor: The Angels & Demons star had a cancerous mole below his right eye removed in 2008. "It was great fun having skin cancer," the now cancer-free actor joked at the time. "I really enjoyed it."

Regis Philbin: The daytime host has endured two skin cancer scares. After having a lump removed from his hand via Mohs surgery, he had a more serious lump removed from his face in 1993.

BEFORE removing or using products to remove moles, it's best to have been checked by a dermatologist, so he can see if it's a bad mole or a good mole. You've got about 40 moles on your face, the SUN can make them larger, darker even bumpier. Avoiding the sun @ least 99% of the day prevents them from growing or appearing new moles. Right now? Your mole had gotten infected, and the Oregano oil have cause more harm than good. LEAVING it alone for a few days, let the skin heals naturally. If after a week, it hasn't gotten improve, have a doctor sees it.
