I’ve Burned My Skin Cancers Off 40+ Times
I’ll take a lot of heat for this, because so many people think that nobody but a doctor can tell you what might be on your skin that is an abnormal growth.
But I’ve burned off over 40 pre-cancers and skin cancers, the last 15 years, using a natural product called black salve. I am not a doctor, and this is not medical advice. I am simply telling you what I have done, like my mother has, and my grandmother did before her.
Because I went to the dermatologist’s office, the first time I had a squamous cell cancer or pre-cancer, I sat in the waiting room for an hour, I paid a few hundred bucks, and the procedure they did didn’t work, and I was back in there two months later. And then I did it again, and the skin cancer came back again.
I used this natural product called black salve, which is a plant-based substance that kills abnormal growths—which can be anything from pre-cancers, to skin tags, to moles, to squamous or basal cell carcinomas.
Again, I am not telling you to do this yourself. I am saying this is what I have done, about 40 times now. Because I got hundreds of sunburns as a young person. I was beyond reckless with my fair skin. In fact, as a teenager I often got a sunburn every single day in the summer.
You cannot expect the use of black salve not to scar, especially with a full-blown skin cancer. If there’s a cancer in your face, when it dies and comes out, however you killed it, including the burning and MOHs surgery that a dermatologist or plastic surgeon would do, it could scar.
I have a small divot on my nose, and I have a small keloid scar on my chest, from using black salve. All the others, I burned them off with black salve when they were pre-cancers, and the only thing you could see is a spot that is lighter than my skin, if I didn’t have makeup on, and you looked closely. I also used a healing ointment after the small cancer or pre-cancer died and fell out.
I do not sell black salve, and I do not profit in any way from you using it. And again, I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice. But a company I like is Barlow Herbal in Utah, and you would have to call them, for the black salve product; they do not advertise it online with a link.
They also have a product called Golden Salve for healing the tissues after the skin cancer, mole, skin tag or other aberrant growth falls out. Black salve is a product Big Pharma and Big Medicine do not want you to have, or know about. When YouTube banned all content that in any way contradicts WHO or CDC, in 2020, they took my video about black salve down.
But what I do is put the black salve on with a toothpick, covering the whole area that is scaly, or bleeding, or has been looking abnormal for months, and I cover it up with a Band-Aid. It takes about 5 to 7 days for the abnormal growth to die. It turns white when it dies.
The first couple of minutes, you might feel a mild stinging. On day 2 or 3, the spot might itch. I don’t scratch it, as I don’t want to interrupt the process, nor do I want the black salve to come off.
It takes several days for the black salve to do its work. If I replace the Band-Aid in the first few days, and the black salve has come off, I re-apply it. I confess I’ve dug my fingernails into it, through the Band-Aid, when it itches, but I probably shouldn’t.
When the cancer dies and is ready to fall out, you’ll see it on the Band-Aid. You might notice there’s a small hole in your skin. Luckily your skin has regenerative properties, and it fills itself in, and you can use Vitamin E, or a healing ointment, to keep it moisturized.
A man in his 40’s sent me these photos of his skin, before and after he used black salve to eliminate a mole. You can see for yourself how his skin looked a few weeks after he applied the black salve, it fell out, and the skin began healing.
I wish I didn’t damage my skin so much that I’ve had to use black salve so many times, but, well, I have. And if I’d gone to the dermatologist, I would have spent about 80 hours and even if I did two spots at a time, it would have cost me about $6,000 by now. One of my sun-loving Florida neighbors has a standing monthly appointment with her dermatologist, to get cancers and pre-cancers burned off.
I’ve just chosen a different path. My bigger concern, versus whether you choose the dermatologist or this method, is that I think many people just avoid making the appointment, saving their money or not wanting the hassle and the pain of the burning or freezing at the clinic, and so the skin cancer can grow and get worse.
The worse it gets, the more likely your skin is, to scar, when you deal with it at a more advanced stage. So, given the fact that many people didn’t want to even go to the doctor, in 2020 and 2021, personally I just like to avoid the medical industry as much as possible. So I keep this little product handy, it never goes bad, and I do it myself. I’m not suggesting you do it, and I wouldn’t tell you there’s no potential of scarring, but you know what’s best for you.
People will say, “you’re not a doctor, so you can’t possibly know what’s on your skin.” They’ll call you Doctor Google if you look up photos of pre-cancers, for example. But if it’s red, scaly, itchy, and/or bleeds, and it’s been there for months, and it’s not a rash over a larger area, it’s not healthy tissue, and may be a pre-cancer (actinic keratosis), or basal cell or squamous cell cancer.
I have had all three, and I prefer to deal with it myself, before an actinic keratosis becomes a bigger problem.
