You can remove moles and warts by mixing Baking Soda and Castor oil into a poultice and placing it over the mole? Prepare the sport by scratching the mole or wart with a pin or needle. Do not make it bleed. Then place the paste you made over the w/m and keep it in place, changing the paste 3x daily. Within 3 weeks it will fall off without leaving a scar.

Yes, I have used this method. See the comments I posted for syndibee (504). Pay particular attention to the sensitive skin area comments. I have recommended this method to many people who have considered expensive surgeries. However, the surgery always leaves a scar and this method does NOT!

That is interesting, have you tried it. I have a mole under my arm that I've had since I was a kid, I just may give it a try.

Yes, I have used this technique and I have found that it works VERY well. However, IF the mole or wart is located in a sensitive skin area, you should take precautions not to leave the baking soda on the spot very long. The baking soda will kill the microbes CAUSING the problem, however, it is caustic to the sensitive skin area. In such cases, use simply the Castor Oil. Using just the Castor oil takes longer, but it WILL also do the job. Please note: If the mole or wart or skin tag is a large nodule, you might consider taking a thread and tying it around it and pulling it tight to starve it from the blood supply. In a couple of days, it will drop off. However, the underlying fungal problem will remain and should be treated as I have suggested. Also, consider having someone help you tie the thread and/or scratch the spot with a pin.

Additionally, note that especially if you do NOT use the baking soda, the time to rid yourself of these fungal out-brakes can be from 3 days to three weeks and longer. DO NOT be discouraged, this method DOES work! Just stay with the program and you will see results.

Please read my comments to other similar questions and then pay attention to the comments concerning sensitive skin areas. Otherwise feel comfortable that not only does this work, it is safe and inexpensive.

I think you are the answer to my wart problem. I have one in my ring finger right at the thumb area and it keeps on growing. I used to cut it with scissor or nail cutter but it will grow again. Sometimes I am embarrass to shake hands with friends because I know that they feel it because it is rough. I will do your suggestion and keep in mind to buy a carton of baking soda and a bottle of castor oil the next time I visit SM Hypermart. Thanks and I am very positive it will work. Gnight.

No clue about moles but I have to say duct tape works great on warts and corns. There is something in the adhesive that helps to kill the bacteria and breaks down the other stuff too.
