Removing Skin Tags at Home
Skin tags are not serious, nor are they harmful to you, but many people would like to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. A skin tag is a piece of skin that is irregular in shape, often a brownish fleshy color that can be formed anywhere on the body. They are most often formed in areas where skin rubs against skin, such as in the armpits, eyelids, neck, groin, and upper chest area. They are most commonly found in people that are overweight or in women that are pregnant. They consist of nerve bundles, fat cell, and a core of both fibers and ducts, and then covered with skin. While there are several medical procedures that can be done to remove skin tags, there are also several ways to do it from the comfort of your own home.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Gently apply the vinegar to the skin using a cotton swab or something soft and absorbent. Apply it liberally. There is a good possibility that there will be a stinging sensation for a few minutes, but it will cease. Doing this daily for 2-4 weeks should make the skin tag fall off on its own.
Much like the apple cider vinegar, apply the lemon juice to the skin tag using a cotton ball, and leave it there until it dries. You will start to notice some changes to the skin tag with days of the application. Continue doing this process until it dries out and eventually disappears.
Like bananas? Great! You can eat a banana, and then cut the peel the banana into small pieces. Lay the inside of the peel onto the skin tag, and then apply a bandage over top. Leave it there overnight. Continue this process until the skin tag just falls off.
Finally a use for all tat floss you have accumulated over the years from going to the dentist! You can tie a tight knot around the skin tags as close to your body as you can get it. Leave it there for approximately two to three weeks until the skin tag falls off. This works by cutting off the blood supply to the skin tag, so the tighter you tie the knot, the more effective this method will be.
Apply the vitamin E to the skin tag with some garlic twice a day. Do this process for 1-2 weeks and the skin tag will fall off.
