Take an ear bud or piece of cotton, dip the cotton part in the iodine solution, and apply exactly on the mole while leaving the surrounding area untouched.

How To Remove Moles With Iodine Solution - Step 2

You should apply the iodine solution on the mole at least twice every day. If possible, thrice in a day will be better.

Cover it with a gauze and secure it to your skin with tape straight after you have followed this procedure and change the gauze every time you apply the iodine solution.


You won’t see any visible changes in the mole for the first few days, but you will see it coming off after 2 weeks. With time, it will permanently disappear, exposing the pink skin underneath. Stop applying the solution, and wait for the skin to heal completely.


Since iodine is very toxic, do not use it in big quantities. Also, make sure that it does not get ingested, especially by your pets or children.

Iodine is very toxic! That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! A few weeks ago me and my wife went to a Beach resort and both of us had our legs out for lunch to a bunch of Sand mites. Both of us ended up with hundreds of little bumps on our legs. I went in the shower, cleaned up then used an entire 16 oz bottle of 2% solution on all over my body, waited for it to all dry then put on my PJ's and went to bed. I had an extra bottle and told my wife to do the same, she wouldn't. The next day, I washed up with Tea Tree Oil Soap and the bumps and itching was all gone. My wife had welts all over her from the bites. Two weeks later my wife still had hideous bumps all over from the bites! Sure the iodine caused a little bit of Diarrhea, but that's because it displaces Fluoride and Bromine in your system, in other words it Detoxes you. Iodine not only disinfects you without harming healthy cells, it can actually KILL cancer cells!

Iodine is so important to the body as every cell has an iodine receptor. Most people are deficient.
