I cant remember if it was a parent or my sister who told me if you cut off a mole you will bleed to death. I think it was probably my dad when I asked him why he doesn't clip off his red dangling moles. I thought that was true for a long time.

Something Evie can post in this thread in a decade:
Pizzerias don't hide candy in pizza crust bubbles, that was my dad.

Yeah, my kids were convinced that Dominoes did that, because we don't have a dominoes nearby and Tyler did that when we were over there.

I think this is 100% false and you should keep it covered, and a scab actually slows the healing process.

On a same note. Putting peroxide on a cut/wound helps clean it out. This actually can hurt the cut and makes healing slow down because it kills the good stuff in the wound too that would naturally heal it.
