I've taken warts off and helped heal many skin aliments with ACV (with mother) (the brown stuff in bottom of bottle). It kills the fungus and bacteria on certain skin disorders. Even works well on fever blisters - it will burn like the dickens though. Lemon Balm is very effective on fever blisters. But back to the skin cancer. There is a black salve you can take certain types of basal cell cancers off with, called the "original black salve." I've taken several off my arms, chest- after doctor had taken a few off. They generally never come back. If they did, I reapplied, and they went away. I'm speaking of pinkish small type- NOT crusty types.

The problem with trying to effect a crusty type cancer, is that nothing seems to get UNDER the crust. My Dad played around with his black crusty spot on his arm for a couple years- and finally persuaded, he went for biopsy and it was melanoma. Quite extensive surgery, although the top part was only size of dime (or less). They spread out UNDER the skin. They took out two lymph nodes when they did the rotor rooter surgery on his arm. And found nothing in the lymph nodes, so caught it in time.

Now he's making excuses why he doesn't need to go back every 3- months, then 6 months.... oh YES, he's going back!!

HI U SHARON, my Tenn neighbor, , , , , , , , , , , , Melanoma is a big bad bugger. Had a relative who passed way before his time because of that cancer. He had jack so he went to MD Anderson. That clinic is second to none except four of my friends who were treated there are all dead. My best buddy moved to Houston back in the 90's so they could call every shot.

They declared him cancer free and he was dead in three months. This sign they are now showing where cancer being crossed out is just more BS.

I have no solution, but getting your daddy to go back to an allopathic doctor makes me want to cry.

There is a natural cancer cure series coming up next week on the internet. Watch this and learn what you don't know.... if you want to help your father.

The cancer cure rate of traditional medicine is 3 %.

Sharon, important to know, the Black salve is NOT to be applied on any area that has cartilage underneath it. Such as ear area that is sort of hardish, or on nose. I was told this by someone who made the black salve for the health community markets.

Seven days ago I visited my GP to have another sun damage spot frozen off, this time from my nose. I'm 56, fair skinned, and have suffered the embarrassment of a flamboyantly sunburned nose more times than I care to recall. It was a tiny 2mm, raised lump, pinkish, bled if I knocked or rubbed it accidentally. GP looked at it with his magnification, said it was a basal cell carcinoma, couldn't be frozen, needed a biopsy, then surgical removal! ... Not impressed.

I immediately went online to find natural treatment, found this website, and was amazed by what I read.

To the pantry, to the Apple Cider Vinegar.

The biopsy was booked for the end of the month, 18 days away. I thought that maybe by then there may be some improvement.

I used a cotton bud with ACV every hour or so until bedtime, then stuck a small cotton wool pad soaked with ACV on the offending object, and held it on with a band aid. Removed it some time in the middle of the night, been on for 4 hours or so.

The first 2 applications with the cotton bud turned it blackish, and it started to scab. That was last Thursday afternoon.

I continued to repeat the exact process for the next 4 days. By then a scab had formed around the 2mm BCC, so the scab it's self was about 1cm round, with a blackish centre. The edges looked red and angry. The vinegar caused stinging, a little throbbing, none of which lasted more than 10 mins or so, totally bearable, and I'm a wimp with zero pain threshold!

On Tuesday I stopped the vinegar, thought I'd let the scab fall off, then see whats underneath. I gently rubbed an all natural vitamin E cream on the scab and surrounding area a couple of times a day.

Today is Thursday 7 days later. The scab washed off in the shower this morning. Underneath is healthy pink skin, no raised lump, just the tiniest hole where the BCC was. It's gone!!

I'm blown away. I'll keep an eye on it, but it seems to have vanished. I've cancelled the biopsy :)

So I have had this bcc for what seems to be about a year now. It has turned into a small hole on the side of my cheek. I finally decided to try the vinegar treatment after reading this blog last weekend. I started treatment on Sat night and have stuck with it until today (Tue). The area has become red and inflammed and has a green tint to it. I feel like it has spread and now the whole side of my cheek is really swollen.

Is it working and should I keep up with it?

Bryan T., I don't know what to tell you about vinegar, I have trouble with the smell, so I tried everything else out there. Since mine was growing, even after two years of trying everything, I caved in and had it removed (and have a nice scar to show for it...). But when all is said and done, the only things that seemed to make any positive difference to me, was: green clay, and very short applications of baking soda (any longer, was too painful). The green clay never hurt but works verrrry slowly and this thing was just atop the bridge of my nose, so it was socially awkward to walk around with a green blob on my face.

I have had the same success with simple protocol of ACV as Kate mentions. The protocol is almost identical, except I cleaned the area with non food grade 3% peroxide before applying the ACV. It has been almost 8 months, and after the scab fell off, it did leave an indentation, but was using creams to complete the process. I have noticed it has started to come back, I may have not completed the process so will attack it again, but this time will clean area with food grade Peroxide mixed down to 3%.

Yes it will get nasty looking, yes it may burn a little, but keep on the process for at least 2 to 3 weeks, even though my scab feel off with 3 days of applying ACV which was rather quick.

So I am doing it again, may have not caught it all, but the ACV did catch a smaller one on the other side of my nose, and that area completed healed up and looks normal.

ACV works great, yes going to be a little bit painful and sting, but well worth it. I am also going to try the egg plant version as well and make my own mixture.

Will keep people posted as to the outcome of this one, and try to take some pictures again. it has only been day 1 of actually starting it seriously again.

Stay Tuned...

HI YA'LL DOIN, , , , , , , , , , yep, it's fun to play doctor with the simple ACV.......... but skin cancer is not a play thing. If you want to play then do Cur a derm and be done with the monster. I have done all the stuff you are doing. I raise my own eggplant and treat my arms, but not if it's cancer.

That's not a play thing. If it's just crusty stuff then play doctor. Otherwise, get serious. That is an ole patoots advice .

You say you used apple cider vinegar and it worked, and after the scab came off it was gone. But how do you know it's actually gone, did you go back to the doctors and get another biopsy to make sure?

Last year in August I had fabulous results from using Apple Cider Vinegar to rid myself of a small Basal Cell Carcinoma on my nose.

It's now mid February, the balmy heat of late summer at it's best. I'm delighted to report that my nose, & the rest of me, is free from all BCC.

No recurrence of of anything even slightly odd....other than my wide brim gardening hat which I wear when I go walking on sunny days!

I would think it wise to get the biopsy and see if anything is there or not. I had a biopsy on my chest and they said there were a lot of basal cells. they want to cut it out and do what is called the "mose" procedure. I am terrified.

I will try the vinegar and Hydrogen peroxide and see where this goes.

Hi Kate,

I tried applying raw and organic ACV on my nose believing that the growth might be cancerous. Next afternoon I observed few pores turned black and few small white pimples out of which a clear fluid came out upon bursting them. Is this the behavior of cancer cells or is the growth something else?

Thank you!!! You give me hope! Is everything still going good? I have a tiny speck of BCC on my cheek and want to nip this guy in the bud! Am going to try my raw ACV today. I drink it every day too (but lately have stopped to give stomach a break). I do not want to be cut open : | no way jose!

Did you ever have Mohs surgery, or did you try this method? I am scheduled for this surgery next week. I am very scared as this is on my nose and I have seen pictures of how they dig it out by the roots. The acv, alternatives to getting rid of it, does it get the root of the cancer so it doesn't spread under the skin?

Jmj, after battling a BCC for 2 years with home remedies, I caved in and had surgery (and a nice scar to show for it). Not Moh's.

If, G-d forbid, I ever get it again, I would persevere with natural stuff, especially "petty spurge", clay, and short applications of baking soda. But if you decide to go that route, read tons before trying any home remedies.

ORH, ain't got Curaderm in my parts. I actually did soak eggplant in vinegar but at the time, I didn't see much results from it.

Hopefully I'll never have another BCC but you can bet yo last dime that if I do, I'll be doing home stuff thick and fast before putting m'self under the knife again. That bloke says: "this'll only take a couple of minutes and you won't have a scar", my foot!! Both claims were as false as they come.

If I can buy Curaderm from England over the internet, then so can you. I have bought two tubes in the last decade or so. It will last for years and absolutely leaves no scars. I do let a dermatologist take on the tough ones that will mess up my beauty. Naw, sometimes I delay treatment and get spooked and nervous.

I live in Australia, I just went to the skin specialist a few days ago to have a recurring scab on the side of my nose looked at. He examined it for about 2 seconds and told me it was a bcc. My options are to let him scrape it out, or have it cut out and then have to get a skin graft, which he pointed out looks terrible. He told me I would have a scar on the side of my nose which will be white and crater like if he scraped it. I have an appointment to have this done in 2 weeks. Scared to death. Needless to say I have been searching the internet for natural remedies for bcc's. I have started an Apple Cider Vinegar treatment, just dabbing it all day when I think of it, a few times first with peroxide then the acv. 2 nights I have soaked a cotton wad with it and taped it to my nose and slept with it. Something is happening, it has gotten very red around a very small dark scab, stings a bit when dabbing it but nothing too bad, I am going to keep this up for a few more days, then start using the eggplant and Apple Cider Vinegar I have fermenting in the fridge. I'm hopeful, but it is definately worth a shot before I succumb to giving in.

What makes me so mad is the fact that I cannot get curaderm in this country, or any other creams like that, I thought the dermatologist might have prescribed me something like this first before wanting to attack it with a knife. It is even illegal for anyone to sell black salve here. Dr Cham studied at Queensland University for god's sake, and we have so many cases of skin cancer in this country annually, you would think he would be able to market this product here. If I am wrong and anyone knows how to get Curaderm BEC5 here, please respond.

Hi Patricia,

I see your post is from 2017. I have been posting as of very recently, since I'm trying to find alternatives for a BCC.

I'd be curious to know what has become of your skin issues after having used the ACV. From your description, it sounds as if it was working.

I've been reading about the eggplant cream/recipe, which sounds very good.

Hope it worked out for you,

I had a tiny basal cell carcinoma cut out of my forehead 10 years ago and not had any since until now. When suddenly and I mean suddenly, there was one a cm in diameter. I know what a bcc looks like at various stages so have taken no medical advice. I am a qualified homeopath, four years training but retired.

The one cut from my forehead was only a tiny pearl. This one now is a crater type with white margins. I immediately found this forum and set to with the apple cider vinegar, I have the one with the mother inside the bottle. Just two days on and there is a remarkable change. Two white covers, which removed easily and the bcc is just about flat and a very healthy dark pink. A tiny tiny bit of stinging this morning, nothing much. I applied with a (cotton) bud 5 to 6 times in the day and stopped at night.

I await two homeopathic remedies by special delivery this morning as I need now to go via the internal immune route too. I had a very close bereavement 5 months ago and the timing is right for something to have erupted. I cannot name remedies, so please don`t ask.

Six months ago my doctor observed an approximate, dime-sized spot on my scalp as basal cell carcinoma. He referred me to a dermatologist and descibed the curettage procedure - which did not put me in a dancing mood....

After procrastinating for a few months (typical) I decided I had better address the issue.

I've used Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar for years for a variety of reasons and looked on Earth Clinic for a possible natural benefit to basal cell. I saw one post for Apple Cider on the basal cell carcinoma page. I followed the instructions on this post and my basal cell reacted identically to the treatment prescribed in the above post. Joy...

The only thing I did differently is, occasionally, I secured an apple cider vinegar-moistened gauze pad across the basal cell and secured it with 3M Micro-Pore tape. I slept with this a couple of nights along with applying the apple cider with a dropper several times during the day. It was an easy process.

The healing started about the third day. It turned bright red and then a scab began to form. When the effect of the apple cider vinegar starts working, there is no doubt. You can feel it "reaching out" across the area - something like tentacles following the basal cell. It was similar to a low grade headache - which I was delighted to have as I could tell the apple cider was working.

I'm on the very end of my second treatment to remove a tiny bit of what was almost completely removed during my first treatment! It's all but gone I.E., down to a pinhead-sized scab.

The resulting healed skin is a bit pink but it is fading. I used only Raw Organic Apple Cider and generic 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. I estimate this saved me around $2000 in clinic costs.

I took a series of photos I could possibly share, but I'd like this final phase to complete which should be in the next couple of days. The scab that forms is not like a typical scratch that heals. It's very hard and takes time to complete healing to the point the scab falls off naturally.

Total treatment time was about five weeks. Total cost: Less than $10

Apple Cider Vinegar worked for me. I've been diagnosed with Basal Cell. One lesion I had cut out. I had a second lesion for over a year on my shoulder. After reading the above post, I applied ACV numerous times per day directly with a cotton swab and then covered it with a ACV soaked thin gauze pad or band aid. It stings. After a week, I could tell, it had killed the cancer cells. I stopped applying ACV, and allowed the area to scab, then heal. It took about a week to heal completely with no scar. Thank you!

I have had basal cell 4 times. I had surgical removal for two. That was the pits I assure you and left scars and was expensive. So the next time, I simply applied applecider vinegar full strength about 5 times per day until the basal cell spot scabbed over pretty good. For me, it took about 5 weeks. I simply dabbed some on the basal cell with my finger by wetting my finger tips and then dabbing some of the applecider vinegar liberally and directly to the basal cell site. It might sting just a little tiny bit. Leave it alone and let it dry naturally. Do the applecider vinegar about 5 times per day until the basal cell will scab over pretty good. It will start to appear as a whitish grainy looking scab and will be hard to the touch. The spot might just turn a purplish and not scab and that is OK also. It will not hurt. Then I left it alone for about two weeks and then I started to apply 3 percent hydrogen peroxide to the scab about 5 times per day at first and then decreased down to once a day until the scar was gone. I simply applied the peroxide with my fingers liberally to be sure the scab was totally wet. And they are gone and have not returned in over a year. The basal cell is totally healed and not noticeable at all.

How did you know that the Basil Cell was all gone? Did you have another biopsy done?

I have a already had stage 3 melanoma and have had many Basil cells cut out. I now have a big spot just above my ankle that has to be removed. I am going to a plastic surgeon to have this removed because of the size. I am planning on using the cider vinegar for the next couple weeks prior to having it done in hopes that is becomes smaller so they won't have to take out as much and leave such a big scar.

Please if you can respond to this email that would be great!!

Have you tried yet a skin cream, comes in a 20ml tube, that was first mentioned back in the mid-1990's by Dr. David Williams? Its active ingredient , a plant molecule glycoalkaloid, was isolated from a natural weed plant in Oz. This molecule is also found in eggplant. In the cream this active compound is called BEC-5, and it's so potent it's in it at 0.005%. It sailed through its clinical trials to approval, and is in fact now an Rx only medicine in many countries, but not USA (yet).

It treats BCC, SCC, actinic keratosis and keratoacanthomas, but not melanoma and does not leave a cratered scar as bloodroot sometimes can do.
You can find vids of this on U-Tube and Google video.

There is at least one USA website, in SanDiego (area code 858) that sells it online. It isn't cheap, about $120/tube.

As a lifelong Florida resident I have dealt with my fair share of Basal and Squamous Cell Skin Cancers. I went the traditional route with surgical removal by a dermatologist and have the unsightly scars to show for it. On one visit my dermatologist pointed out a Basal Cell growth on the tip of my nose. I was horrified. I know what the scars looked like and there was no way I was willing to have the tip of my nose cut off. I did my research and found a book written by Dr. I Williams and Linda Comac called the Skin Cancer Answer, The Natural Treatment for Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinomas and Keratoses. In the book they reference an over the counter cream, from Australia. This cream is made from plant based glycoalkaloids. I found the cream offered by a company in New Jersey. Needless to say I ordered a tube (34.95 plus 5.95 shipping) and used it as directed. I applied twice a day and covered with a Band-Aid. I did this faithfully for 30 days. The basal cell carcinoma on the tip of my nose scabbed up and fell off, leaving healthy pink skin behind. I returned to my dermatologist. He inspected the site, scratched his head and proclaimed me basal cell free. It's interesting to note that Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world where this cream was developed from a common weed. (Solanum extract) It's good stuff and Australia has done the clinical trials to prove it.

I used black salve on a Basal Cell Carcinoma I had had for years. It certainly worked, it ate into the cancer and down deep. Took about 2 weeks for the scab to form/come off. Problem is, it left me scared. I have a large white depressed patch on my face where the cancer was. In all honesty I shouldn't have done it in such a prominent place on my face. It does work, but be prepared for scarring.

HI U GREG, , , , , , , , warned of this in the past but got put down. Black salve certainly works except it can eat a hole as you say. Myself, I have used the egg plant cream, Curaderm, twice with success and once where the cream indicated that it was not a cancer after all.

That is the beauty of Curaderm. If the spot is not a cancer, then it does not turn hard and black. You just stop using.

I am using the homemade version of the BEC 5 cream as mentioned above. I've been at this for about three weeks. I have basal cell cancer on my nose and my dermatologist recommended MOHS surgery. I am only 42 years young and just want to try something natural before getting my face cut. I've been documenting this process and if it's successful, I will post pictures to follow.

The recipe is hard to find online but it's basically one medium size eggplant and organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. You pulverize the eggplant and mix it together with the apple cider vinegar. You want it to be a thick consistency if possible just so that it stays on better. Prior to using this, I tried Dr. Christophers black salve. That was working, just really slow going. Thanks for your posts, especially the ones on plain apple cider vinegar. It helps if you have a community to reach out to!

Hi to all. It's wonderful to read about your success. I have been treating a place on the tip of my nose with apple cider vinegar ( neat) during the day, and also coconut oil mixed in a paste with bicarb of soda, for when I am indoors and at night. Only yesterday it was looking nice and dry with a little scab, but this morning it had bled and the scab was much darker, I think because it bleeding, so I don't know if I knocked it during the night, or if its part of the healing process. Now it has bled, is it ok to continue or should I leave one or other off for a few days, your help will be very much appreciated. Thank you so much

JustChillin, I would keep applying and not give it a chance to close up.

Another good thing to use on the bcc is vitamin C powder. Adding vit E and green tea extract works well with the vitamin C.

You should see some black dots and serous fluid when the mixtures are working and be able to remove bits of tissue little by little.

Thanks so much for your reply, Nanoagain. I will see if I can buy some vitamin c from the chemist. The scab seems to fall of and the process starts again, but each time the original place seems to be reduced. I tend to put the past of bicarb and coconut oil on in the evening, and for the night time, and then the apple cider vinegar during the day. When should I use the vitamin c and how much. When you say remove bits of the tissue, do you mean pick it off.... sounds yuk, but will do whatever it takes. Could I use coconut oil with the vitamin c, or pehaps aloe vera ? thank you so much. I have a wedding to go to in about 6 weeks, I hope it is gone by then xx

Just Chilling, you're quite welcome. I bought vitamin c powder on Amazon. Make a paste with the vitamin c and a vitamin e capsule. Smear it on the lesion and leave it. In the morning, soak a washcloth in hot water and use it to soften the lesion, which will pull off the dead tissue. Reapply paste.

Green tea extract added to the paste is very good as well, but adds a dark color to the paste over time. The vitamin c and e paste is fairly discrete when out in public.

The sodium bicarbonate I found to be very effective and the aloe Vera as well. I juiced the whole leaf and applied it to my face overnight.

Good luck with your treatment!

This is the guy who learned what the ingredient is in eggplant that cures your skin cancer. I know because he has cured two of mine. Buy this book, read it and cure yourself.

Put forth a little effort and the bright folks here will help you.

How long did you use the Apple Cider Vinegar for & how did you know when to stop that & same question for HP ( how did you know when to start? You said there was a couple of weeks with no applications? I've been using ACV for two weeks on a BCC a centimetre & half in length. For the first time in months the scab didn't fall off after ( the usual) 3 days. Not sure if I should keep using it or give it a break & see what happens. I can see the bumps are still raised under the edges of the scab?

Dear Cathy, I reply to a letter of yours of 5.28.2012. I also seem to have since several years a basiloma on my nose. I read what you say about an australian cream based on glycoalkaloids. Could you tell me more about that cream? What is its name and who is producing it, so I can do a little research and maybe find it here in Europe? Thank you very much. Amito

HI U AMITO, , , , , , , , , , , , , watch this video and research other sites that use Curaderm.

This will not cure Melanoma. You can buy this egg plant cream on the internet.

Would like your opinion. I have a BCC on my forehead & do not want to go the allopathic way!! I read the book you mention above & ordered Curaderm. I used it faithfully for 1 year & 1/2.... It started looking like it was healing the first few weeks I used it but then it began getting a little worse...I continued using and after 18 months or so I moved on to other treatments...ACV, other creams, now trying baking soda. It is now the size of a quarter (US coin). Do you think I should try Curaderm again? Thanks for listening.

Barbara, it's grown way too big for you to handle alone IMHO.

Either let them cut, or go to a reputable naturopath who has experience wih BCCs.

You might ask the naturopath about petty spurge (which hurts and gets worse at first) and chaga, but again, sounds too scary to go it alone at this point.

HI U BARBARA,,,,,,,, have gone down both trails and suggest you find a good dermatologist and get this taken care of. I too try to use natural methods, but your cancer may not be basal cell. Curaderm will not work on Melanoma.

Curaderm works within weeks, and you need to stop playing games with this problem.

Cured 3 BCC with ACV and baking soda with coconut oil.

The first time I removed my bcc, I used ACV soaked in a cotton ball and taped it to my BCC every night. After a few days it turned red and after about a month I was BCC free.

The second time I removed my bcc, it was close to my eyes, so I used baking soda with coconut oil 1 tbsp each mixed and made a paste and applied it to the area. After about 2 weeks I was bcc free. I had to deal with scabbing and redness but after that I'm bcc free.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda, Peroxide

I'm a 60 year young, white female, 130 pounds, living in the U.S.A., with basal cell carcinoma on the right side of my nose. A blackhead is what I thought it was and had gone to have a different non bcc spot checked on my left cheek. Biopsy was July 28,2015.

I started August 4th using organic apple cider vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as a paste, alternating with fresh cut aloe vera (using the inside of the leaf) at night...securing either solution with a band aide. My nose looks horrible, due to the fact of more bcc there than what I'd hoped for. The area is puffy, red and just really looks bad. I believe I had read where it will get worse before it gets better. I'd love to post pictures of this process for two reasons, informative and feedback. Thank you for allowing me to join this discussion.

I am treating my husband's bcc. It was cut out and came back. This is our third week of baking soda covered with a moist bandage. It is doing it's thing. It is quite large. And, very painful for him. The outer skin is hardened but turning a clear color. I think this might take a long time to clear up. Wanted to join the conversation as someone who understands as he is suffering quite a bit due to the treatment which made me a little concerned if we need to see a doctor.

However, to kill it completely I think personally this is the way to go. We haven't tried hydrogen peroxide because he was dead against it. So, I have only used baking soda. Praying we come through this as it is kind of gross. He has two areas on his back that look like bullet or arrow wounds. I am not kidding. I feel for him and have see his bright personality go into the depths of humility really fast as the roots of this cancer is being extracted and destroyed. What a journey! Thanks for letting me sob!! :)

I had my first basal cell on my chest which a dr cut out and left a big scar. It came back so I used apple cider vinegar to clean the area and allowed it to sit on the basal cell which at times burned but nothing intolerable. I then mixed baking soda, vitamin c crystals and a little water to dissolve the crystals. The site grew into a half heart shape, turned black, crusted, and eventually closed in about 3 weeks. My husband made me go for a biopsy because he doesn't believe in my "witch doctoring" as he calls it. Biopsy clear 😊.

I got another one above my lip and along my hairline. I treated them the same and again my husband made me biopsy. All clear! I told him I healed 3 so I will not biopsy any more because it is 2 cuts, 1 to diagnose and 1 to prove to him it is clear. He is very cautious because he had one on his back that required mohrs surgery so he couldn't believe I was able to cure my own. He then got another one on his back and gave me the opportunity to "Witch doctor" on him. It took about 2 months to cure his simply because he would vascilate between whether he believed it would work or not but I convinced him to at least let me try before his appointment and now it is all clear. 😊

IF you use the treatment faithful 2 times a day, it should honestly not take more than 2-3 weeks to clear up but I know depending on location, you can't walk around with a white paste.

Aloha, I have a very large bcc on my forehead , I was going to have MOHS, I decided to wait 4 months because I have a large event happening and I did not want a 4 to 5 inch scar on my face at that time. A friend from my job told me about apple cider vinegar and peroxide. I have to is working.

Now this is what I know ....from my experience

This is what I am doing


I started with the apple cider viniger, slept with a cotton ball loaded with viniger on my forehead.

Dabbed peroxide on it thu the day many times and alternate with the vinegar.

Not only do I put it on the crater itself, but around the area about two inches.

I have been doing this since July 16, 2015


The large crater itself turned white, also bits keep coming out, another bcc appeared above the first one, this second one surfaced and is dying, around these bcc several small ones appeared, they are the roots. It looked like small dots at first..then came to the surface showing itself. The peroxide kills it because it dries it out, it cannot live, the apple cider viniger also kills it and soothes the skin.

I found that using the combo as much as possible works ...I sit and watch tv with a plastic cup and Qtip dabbing the peroxide on. I fan it to dry and add some more peroxide , 9 bcc have appeard and are dying off, just think how big of a scar I would have had if I did go for the MOHS

Depending on how long and deep the bcc is you may have a small scar, but better than a big one or having your eyes look weird because of the pull of the skin to repair your face.

I have basal carcinoma on my top lip close to nose hole, I have been swabbing with Peroxide & Apple Cider Vinegar after which I applied coconut oil mixed with Baking Soda, the carcinoma is very sore but my main concern is that in only a week it appears to have grown rather than decreased.

What should I do?

D: I find Cod Liver Oil to be most beneficial in all type skin disorders. Vit-E Oil is also good to apply topically.

Apply Povidone Iodine at least once daily. A synthetic Triple Antibiotic Ointment found at most pharmacies would likely help.

Hi Denise, often the lesion will look bigger because it will get inflamed and swell. If this is the case, it should get smaller with time. It's my belief that the cancer cells get the signal to die when they are treated and then the body has to work to get rid of all the dead cells. so the lesion swells up with lymph and white blood cells, etc. It is normal for it to look worse before it gets better.

Thank you for your encouraging words, I am persevering, I have been applying the peroxide every day along with ACV at various times, at night I apply vit C powder mixed with Coconut Oil or Vitamin E Oil, in the morning there is a often a bloody looking discharge I clean that up with Peroxide which stings for a few minutes. When should I stop the treatment?

Hi. Thanks for sharing your story. How is your bcc now? Did it completely go away? I have a small one on my eyelid and did try Apple Cider Vinegar but it kept pussing and no healing.

Question.... treating a spot on my nose with a combo of both ACV and hydrogen peroxide. Spot turns white after soaking with a Cotton ball and then skin around is red. Is this part of the normal process? Thanks for help.

Replied by Karlin

It might not be a bad thing to see it grow larger when you start using the topical treatments [peroxide, apple cider vinegar, iodine, and I would add TEA TREE OIL as an option] - these irritate the cancer cells, which is what we want. The ointments might also be irritating the healthy tissues, but they are not being killed like the cancer is.

But yes, it could be cause for concern. Mine got a bit painful, but that is okay in this case. Use your intuition, talk to your skin, ask and await an answer [this is difficult to teach].

I was diagnosed with BCC August 2013 via biopsy of pearly bump on upper forehead. Dermo DR recommended Mohs surgery ASAP. The biopsy removed half of the bump, I still had a small bump remaining after biopsy scar cured. I said 'wait, I'm going backpacking for 2 weeks - not a good time to be out in the woods with stitches. And 2 - what's the cost as I have a $5k deductible' (he said that I would probably use it up). After my trip, I found EC and read all the info.

Decided on hydrogen peroxide (standard 3%) applied 2x daily with strong scrub using a peroxide-soaked q-tip for one month, starting Nov. 2013. It stung but I would not say 'painful'. Small bump area was irritated (YES, peroxide is doing its thing). Eventually saw significant reduction in size of remaining bump but also no more signs of irritation.

Then I moved on to organic Apple Cider Vinegar Treatment using same 2x/day application with q-tip. this did not have same sting but caused a more general red rash area across my forehead but I did this for almost a month as well.

In both Treatment modes I left the area open (no bandages). In Jan. 2014 I returned to peroxide Treatment but there didn't seem to be any reaction thus stopped.

Today Feb. 4, 2014 I visited a NEW Dermo DR asking for a full skin scan (I'm 50 YO female, fair-haired, fair-skinned caucasian with lots of hours outdoors). NEW DR gave me full exam and declared that there were no concerns with my skin (any of it). I then told NEW DR of BCC Dx in August.... he rubbed my forehead with alcohol-soaked gauze and examined thru his 10x polar-light magnifier and declared 'yes, he could see a small pink bump (MINISCULE) in the scar tissue. and then he 'lawyered' up and agreed that the 'STANDARD of CARE' is Moh's surgery for this.

After he left, his assistant (who was there for the whole thing) said that I could wait until I got medicare insurance to cover the cost of surgery. So, I will NOT be getting Moh's surgery, I will be monitoring my skin for pearly bumps and other strange things. For pearly bumps I will invoke the peroxide Treatment (seemed more effective and makes sense when I think of my mom putting it on cuts and scrapes when I was a kid-'get rid of the bad stuff'); for other things I will go back to NEW DR for exam and Diagnosis.

I have had MOHS twice on my face. I can absoluately say I will not have MOHS again unless I have insurance and the skin cancer is NOT on my face. My cancer was basal cell. One spot (pearly) on my line of my upper lip and one on my nose on the side. I now have a misshappen nose and awful scar on lip with numbness on my lip even after 6 years. I have also heard that MOHS can stir up the cancer cells and then they sprout up in new places. I now have a slightly raised bump on tip of my nose and no way will I have MOHS again. The face is too vulnerable a place and too much scarring with MOHS. My friend had MOHS on her lip and the cancer came back within five years. Those MOHS surgeon run you in and out of their offices like cattle making bookoo bucks at your expense. I am going to try the eggplant cream -120 bucks a tube but better than $5,000 MOHS.

I have used the Curaderm for a small skin cancer on my finger and it works. The area was about the size of maybe 1/8 inch on top of the skin but when using the Curaderm the under the skin area darkened to about the size of a quarter. After about a week or so the skin starts to heal.

It has been a year since my original post and thought I'd give an update on my status. The original bump on my forehead remains NOTHING but the scar from the biopsy - the remaining 'half-bump' has been gone since before I went to 2nd dermo DR. In March 2014 I realized that a 'bump' on my right cheek was not just a pimple. I applied the peroxide Tx for a month but it didn't seem to do much, then I applied the ACV (apple cider vinegar) Tx sporadically for a month and it didn't really do anything either. I got busy with summer fun and forgot about it. Since late winter to now I've been doing a mix between peroxide and ACV Tx and today I feel I've finally gotten somewhere because the area opened and bled without my coaxing (no real squeezing or scratching). Now I'm applying ACV Tx frequently to really get at the thing (same 'scrubbing wet q-tip' thing). In summary - I think I've learned that WHERE you get the BCC impacts how easy it is to cure. My forehead is thin skin and things progressed in a reasonable timeframe; this new 'bump' on my cheek is in the fleshy/puffy area and I think that is what is making it harder to cure - but I think I've had a literal 'break through' today.

for sure: no MOHs for me!

Veronica: this is late - but I use either peroxide OR apple cider vinegar.

all: I'm not sure that MOHs or peroxide or ACV Tx will cause further episodes. I believe that once we get it - we are prone to get it again. lucky thing is - it is slow growing.... Regarding eggplant cream and questionable websites - I think you're dealing with snake oil sales-sites - I prefer to stick to the basics. EC does not like 'naming names' but the ACV that I use starts with 'b' and is headquartered in California.

How often should I apply peroxide & ACV to my Basal Cell Carcinoma? Do I apply on alternate days?

And at what stage should I apply the Vit C & coconut oil paste? The cell looks enlarged and the crater bigger, it gets very sore after applying Vit C paste and stings & has a discharge. Please advise me.

I am a 63 year old male, this is my 1st post here. I have had a small scab slightly above and at the end of my right eyebrow for about 3 or 4 months. The scab had some raised tissue surrounding the scab. My 1st thought was BCC, so I started to look for alternative treatment since even my doctor said nothing about it while I was having a general checkup a few months back. I came across this web site and decided to try the H2O2 and ACV treatments.

On the 21st of august I started to apply 3% H2O2 to the area with a Q-tip. I was very careful to only apply H2O2 to the scab and raised tissue area. I would apply H2O2 every hour and the H2O2 created a small depressed area in the skin about 3/8in in diameter all the scab was removed as well as the raised tissue that surrounded the scab.

I then applied a paste of baking soda and allowed it to dry. I covered the soda with a small band-aid. The area was very pink and the applications did sting a little. for the next 2 days I would apply H2O2 3 or 4 times a day, covering the area with baking soda and a band-aid.

On the 4 day I decided to intoduce ACV to the white scab that was about 3/8in diameter. The ACV turned the area black and apeared to dissolve part of the blackened area. I continued to apply ACV every cpl of hours on days 4 thru 6. After the dark scab was completely removed, I then kept applying baking soda paste on days 4,5,6,7,8

The baking soda seemed to assist with generating pink normal skin cells. On days 9 and 10 I left the area open to promote healing with the addition of a small amount of ointment to assist the healing process.

It is now day 11 and the 3/8in area is still slightly depressed but no scab exists or any raised tissue that formally surrounded the scab area. I do keep the 3/8in area covered with a very small band-aid and a tiny bit of ointment to keep the area soft. I am very encouraged by these results in only 11 days. There is still a slight depression of the 3/8in area but I am optimistic that this will slowly return to normal appearance in time.

I will continue to report any changes to the area that has been treated.

I use three things. Baking Soda with coconut oil, Peroxide, and raw Apple Cider Vinegar. I then put Vit. E on the area. First Peroxide to kill the cancer, ACV to help reverse the cells from bad to good, then Baking Soda and Coconut oil to sooth the skin. I sleep with Vit. E on it at night for the scaring. Peroxide once a day at night and ACV twice a day, morning and night, the baking soda becomes a paste and I leave it on at night after the first two applications (proxy./ACV). And I PRAY!

I had a scab on my scalp that was 12mm in diameter and very slowly getting bigger. My doctor referred me to a surgeon who did a punch biopsy. The results showed that it was BCC and the surgeon said that I would need surgical removal fairly soon. The wait for an appointment to see a surgeon for an evaluation was two months so that made it easy to decide to use an alternative treatment. Although I had Black Salve available, it felt too extreme to use on the thin flesh of my scalp so I chose instead to apply baking soda and coconut oil once a day, thanks to all the Earth Clinic reports.

After a week, it got a bit irritated with some small amounts of blood expressed. At that point, I cut away the hair in the area and started applying a Band-Aid to keep it from my pillow when I slept. In the shower every day I washed my hair normally and then applied pHisohex anti-bacterial face wash as an antiseptic and then rinsed that as well.

After eight weeks the bleeding stopped and signs of the BCC were disappearing. I kept applying the mix for four more weeks just in case. Now the hair is growing back well although it's a little lighter and the only way I can tell where it was it is a slight dent in my scalp. I stopped six weeks ago. In a follow-up visit to my doctor I had to show him twice where the BCC used to be.

FYI, I consulted three more surgeons who all said it needed to be cut out and one even said I'd need a skin graft (where no hair would grow) to cover the wound. At that point the (free) surgery wouldn't actually be available for another three months as I am a public patient with a low time-priority issue. None of them would discuss my self-treatment for legal reasons.

In retrospect, I'd try the Black Salve as a quicker treatment and possibly more certain cure. Thank you EARTHCLINIC!

I had a bcc on my scalp. Had surgery but it came back with a leison that grew larger. I researched and found a lady who had cured her mother's bcc in the same spot as mine with baking soda and coconut oil. She gave a pictorial ongoing account so I tried it and put it on every day and cleaned it at night. It was tender but gradually came off a little at a time. After several weeks the last part came off today. My scalp is red but I am going to put aloe vera on it. Now I'm hoping my hair will grow back there. Not sure if there is any of it remaining under my scalp but guess I'll find out.

I have just been diagnosed with a BCC on my nose, after being told last year it was just a scratch by a GP and had it zapped with the dry ice thing :( After the skin cancer doctor doing 3 biopsies and freaking me out, he says it's around $5000 up front, which I don't have, even if I wanted the surgery straight away. I'm glad I've seen this page and that people seem to have success with the ACV, baking soda and coconut oil. They are all things I already have, so I will start today and see what happens...

CherryJoy, Of course it will help any stage of BCC. Use organic raw apple cider vinegar and after generously wiping with a Cotton ball & allowing to dry apply baking soda & coconut oil. You should see results after 3 to 4 weeks. Stay away from chemical sunscreens and wear a large brimmed hat.
