    Anyone use this on their moles? I’ve been reading about its use in preventing/reversing melanoma.

    Anyone try this? I have several moles. Would I need to dab it on each one, or is there any harm in just giving my whole torso a good coat?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I think you would be safer if you go to a dermatologist and get your moles looked at before you take them off, if you take them off.

    If one of them really IS a melanoma, you would not want a “do it yourself cure”… you really would be better served to have it taken off correctly and sent to a pathologist, so you would have a much better idea of what to do next.

    Thank you for your reply!

    I actually see a derm every 6 months after having had an insitu. As much as I’d like the remaining ones to be removed, they are just being watched.

    My thought was why not prevent?

    Thanks so much!

    I could find no evidence of this working for prevention or anything else.
