Skin tags, or exactly known as acrochordon, are a result of the accumulation of blood vessels and collagen in the thicker pieces of the skin. They are small fleshy outgrowths, deformed in shape, which appear on the armpits, arms, neck, eyelids, and lower part of the breast, both in ladies and guys.
Yet, they can be fortunately treated in a simple way, with these homemade remedies:
Tea Tree Oil
Soak a cotton ball in some water and then pour at least 2-3 drops of tea tree oil on it. Rub the skin tag with the cotton ball in circular motions and really gently. Repeat on a daily basis for a week.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Just soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply it right over the skin tag. Return daily for a month.
Apply pineapple juice on the skin tag every day for some times, and do not clean it off. Repeat this for ten days, and the skin tag will go. This method is also useful in the case of warts and moles.
Cut an onion, and leave it in a vessel with some salt through the night. In the day, squeeze the juice, and apply it to the area for 10-12 days to remove the skin tag.
Prepare a paste by mixing a bit of castor oil with baking powder, and apply it on the skin tags for 2- 4 weeks.
Cut a small piece of banana peel and place the inner part of it over the area with the skin tag. Cover it with gauze, and leave it until the morning. Repeat until the skin tag is gone.
You should stick a piece of duct tape to the skin tag daily for 10-12 days to remove the skin tag.
Skin tags are painless and unobtrusive, so you can freely remove them at home with these simple remedies. Yet, you should never try surgical means or castration at home, in order to prevent infections and additional complications.
