  5. Easiest way I know to remove moles (and I have removed quite a bit) is using a banana peel. I cut a piece of the peel and place it (inside of banana) on the mole and put 2 bandaids on it (crisscross). Leave it either all day or all night. The peel turns black as the mole disappears. I have used this on my face as well.

  6. After about 3 days of using this method my mole started growing. It’s 2x the size now. Should I stop using this method ?
