Chemical Burn from Vinegar Following an Internet-based Protocol for Self-removal of Nevi.

Feldstein S, et al. J Clin Aesthet Dermatol. 2015.

Abstract

"Natural home remedies" for nevi removal found on the Internet can be ineffective, or worse, dangerous. Children and teens, in particular, may be more likely to attempt self-treatment in order to avoid discussing their concerns with their parents. Here, the authors report a case of an adolescent who presented with a chemical burn after following an Internet-based protocol for nevi removal using apple cider vinegar.
