Mole Removal (ACV)

I recently used Apple Cider Vinegar on a mole of mine on my hand, which scabbed up and revealed a "crater" like hole, which eventually healed. I kept tissue soaked in ACV on the mole at all times for about a week. I repeated this process on another mole of mine but replaced the tissue more often and upped the concentration. At first it reacted as the previous mole did but then a little of the moles outer layer fell off, revealing a small brownish crater. My skin was irritated by the ACV as with the previous mole. The crater is brownish in colour with a black spot around the middle. I think the brown area is the base of the mole and the black is the true root, which appears to be very deep. I stopped with the ACV because the skin irritation was too great, and I thought that the brown would go away, so I coated the mole and skin in honey to speed up the healing process and soothe the skin. Two days after I stopped the wound is healing but the crater is still brown and very large, as if I unearthed a much bigger mole below the surface. It appears very deep. My question is, should I keep going with the ACV and risk damaging my skin, or should I let it heal, leaving me with a much bigger mole? Please help!
