3 Day Pest Removal Plan?
« on: 12/02/2008 20:56:21 »
Hey guys, Ive heard that if you tie string around  spot or a lump then after 3 days the spot or lump will just 'fall off'

1)Is this true?
2)Anybody ever tried it?
3)Any health hazards?
4)If it does work, does it work for all lumps and spots?

Thanks!

I have heard the same thing, but I really don't know if it works but have heard it does. I would NOT recommend it unless you check with a physician first to see if lump or mole is Benign or Malignant!

I do not know but have always been told not to remove such things without checking first. I am thinkinking it may be a problem. I am not a doctor.
