Skin tags can be very distressing. While the growths are harmless, they can leave you feeling a little self conscious about your appearance. When they grow in areas that are very visible and can’t easily be hidden with clothing, most people start searching for ways to get rid of these skin tags. A visit to the doctor’s office can be expensive and is no guarantee that the skin tag removal will work permanently. Home treatments can cost much less money and may be a permanent skin tag removal treatment.
Cutting the skin tags is one method that some people use to eliminate the growths. To cut the skin tag off, it should be tied with thread or dental floss around the stalk. When snipping the skin tag, you should be sure that your tools are clean and sanitized to prevent infection. There might be some slight pain involved with this home skin tag removal method.
Some have used castor oil and baking soda to eliminate skin tags. The method is not as quick as cutting, but you should see results within a couple of weeks. Apply a mixture of the oil and the baking soda to the skin tag a few times a day.
Just tying the skin tag at the stalk may be enough to kill the growth when the blood supply is cut off. Skin tag removal methods can help eliminate the embarrassing growth and prevent rubbing against clothing. Make sure that your growth is a skin tag before you begin using home remedies.
