Skin tags can raise a huge problem of aesthetics, for some they don’t represent a concern, but for others yes, especially when they are in a high amount spread over different regions on the skin. How to get rid of them? In some cases it is very easy if they don’t represent a health concern only an aesthetics problem, so you have to consult your doctor before trying out these methods. You will find out here ways to remove them quickly and easily, with methods you have never would have thought about. Skin tags can be removed by doctors but usually they bleed a lot and sometimes they also leave scars. These techniques work differently from person to person so you should experiment them and see which works best for you, but don’t forget to consult your doctor first to eliminate any concern.
How to remove skin tags:
1. Apple cider vinegar technique
Take a tiny cotton ball and soak it into organic apple cider vinegar. Take a band aid and secure the cotton ball by leaving it overnight. Your skin tag should turn black and should fall off in 3-5 days without bleeding or any scars. If the tag didn’t turn black, repeat the process for one more day. Do not pick it and beware that the vinegar is very acid and could make some irritations on the skin around the tag. Use some oils(lavender or coconut) to heal the skin after but you better use some Vaseline before ever putting the soaked cotton on your skin tag.
2. Thread technique
Take some thread and tie it tightly around the base of your skin tag. This should stop the blood flow to the tag and it should fall off. Do not pick or cut it.
3. Dental floss technique
The same as the thread technique, but you can use this for bigger skin tags.
4. Hydrogen peroxide method
This is a slower process, take a cotton ball and soak it in hydrogen peroxide, attach it to the skin tag and keep it for 30 minutes every day. After a few days the skin tag will start to shrink and by the end of 2 or 3 weeks it should fall off.
5. Vitamin E method
It seems that vitamin E is a great way to remove skin tags. Take a capsule, break it open and put it on a tag. Cover with a band aid and it should fall off in 3-5 days.
