Moles can occur at any time of life and affect people of all ages, including children. There are two major factors for the appearance of moles – sun exposure, which affects skin pigmentation cells, also known as melanocytes, and the genetic factor.

The garlic extract or just plain garlic can be extremely effective in eliminating moles. Before you apply it, protect the skin around the mole with masking tape or petroleum jelly. Then, apply the garlic extract or pressed garlic to the mole, cover the area with a bandage and leave it thus for four hours. This procedure should be repeated every day.
Castor oil and baking soda
A mixture of castor oil and baking soda can also be effective against moles.
