Clove Oil & Vinegar
I can't even remember what prompted me to use these items, but use them I did and I continue to do so.
Apple Cider Vinegar & Clove Oil
Initially, I used a cotton ball and rubbed the affected area with apple cider vinegar. Then with a q-tip I dabbed on some clove oil, rubbing it in a bit, also. I did this two or three times a day for about two weeks. Then I got a little frightened because the spots were getting more red and scabby, so I stopped with the clove oil and continued with the vinegar. (What's interesting is that the healthy skin around the lesions did not get red and scabby, just the original sores.) My face didn't get worse, in fact it started healing quite quickly. In about a week my face was totally healed with no trace of the original lesions and no scarring. As I reflected on my experience, I realized that the process I went through was similar to what the dermatologist had done a few years earlier. That cream they give you to put on your face that turns the skin cancers into red scabby spots all over your face--same experience, only not as intense, and I felt in control.
I use apple cider vinegar as an astringent several times a week now--it makes a PH level that cancer doesn't like. And when I feel I need it, I do the clove oil treatment with more aggression.
