7 Home Remedies to Mitigate Your Skin Tags

skintagSKIN TAGS! May not be very serious, but they may cause severe itchiness, dryness and irritation on your skin. They mostly occur on your face, neck, throat, nose, armpits, inner thighs, under the chest and genital areas. They could be a cosmetic deterrent for you!

What is a Skin Tag? It is a small, brownish flesh colored wag of skin, which is thin from the bottom and may vary in size from being very minute to a size of a pencil eraser.

What are the reasons to get skin tags? It is obesity which really triggers this skin problem. However, its main causes are genetic factors, pregnancy and Type 2 diabetes. At present, there are no known medical causes but medical professionals believe that they are caused by the mixture of rubbing, aging skin, and continuous friction to sensitized parts of your body like chaffing straps of your bra or tight underwear.

How can you remove skin tags at home?

Tried Dental Floss! Take a bit of dental floss and tie it around the skin tag. Slowly pull it day by day. After a few days, you will observe that your skin color is changing. Gradually, the tag would dry up and fall off.

Viola! Apple Cider Vinegar Apply apple cider vinegar to a cotton ball and apply the soaked ball on the affected area of the skin tag at least 3 times a day. Continue for several weeks until the tag is removed.

Ever thought of the Garlic treatment? Take a piece of garlic and cut it into a thin slice. Put it on the skin tag and apply duct tape to protect the area. Keep it on for a whole day, but don’t forget to apply fresh slices every 3 hrs. Before night-time make sure you remove the garlic and wash your skin. Continue this for 3 days until the tag is cured.

Go the Frankincense oil way Before doing this treatment, do a sensitivity test for this oil behind your ear/ inner side of your elbow.  If all’s good then apply the frankincense oil on the affected area every day for a fortnight till the tag drops.

Yes to Castor oil Take some castor oil and add some baking soda to form a thick paste. Apply this on the affected area thrice a day. Do this for 3 days, until the cure is seen.

Soothing Aloe Vera Apply aloe vera gel on your skin tag and repeat it daily. This will zap the tag in a few days.

The Vit E way Squash a capsule of vitamin E on the affected area and keep rubbing for some time. Repeat this 2 times a day for 10 days.

    Skin tags are totally harmless to body but sometimes there are chances of secondary infection in it & they may increase in very large size. So it is better to remove it with proper technique. Skin tags never change into cancerous lesions over time. Skin tags can be removed with radio-electro surgery. This procedure is quick & painless. No cutting & no stitching is required.
