I have red moles on my thighs so I shave around them, once i did shave one that is kind of raised and it bled too much, I have less then 10 maybe, about five are like an 1/8 of an inch and raised, one is very sensitive.

Forgot to mention, I have quite a few of them, so
shaving around them is not possible. I even tried the sandpaper hand-mitt, but even that made them bleed.

That is a good question. I was just thinking of asking that myself. There is always the laser treatments but if you are in the same boat that I'am then that is out of the question because of money. Maybe someone will have a idea. I tryed the nair and broke out all over my legs.

I luckily don't have many on my legs yet. I ty to shave around them. I also can't use nair because it burns me so bad.

I use an epilator... it hurts a little bit... but if you use an ice pack before and after it really helps.
