How to Remove a Mole With Compound W

Save

Moles can not only affect your appearance and self esteem, but they can also be dangerous to your health. Any attempt at mole removal should be undertaken with a physician's approval. For small, benign moles that affect your appearance only, doctors may recommend using over-the-counter medicines and methods to take care of the problem. This can be a less expensive and less invasive way to achieve the look you desire. Compound W, normally sold as a wart remover, is sometimes recommended to remove these small, harmless moles.

Things You'll Need

  • Compound W
  • Cotton swab
  • Toothpick
  • Place the Compound W gel on the end of a cotton swab. You can use the end of a toothpick if the mole is extremely tiny.

  • Apply the gel to the mole, being careful to cover the entire area. Allow the gel to dry.

  • Repeat the first two steps twice daily for at least one week. The mole will begin to dry up and should be completely gone after this time.

  • Make an appointment with your doctor to make sure the affected area looks as it should and that no further action is needed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not attempt any mole-removal procedure without the consent of your doctor. Only moles that your doctor deems safe should be removed using this method.
