Skin tags, or scientifically known as acrochordon, are a result of the accumulation of blood vessels and collagen in the thicker parts 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 women and men.
Yet, they can be successfully treated in a natural way, with these homemade remedies:
1. 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.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar:
Just soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply it directly over the skin tag. Repeat daily for a month.
3. Pineapple Juice:
Apply pineapple juice on the skin tag every day for a few times, and do not wash it off. Repeat this for ten days, and the skin tag will disappear. This method is also effective in the case of warts and moles.
4. Onion Juice:
Cut an onion, and leave it in a vessel with some salt during the night. In the morning, squeeze the juice, and apply it to the area for 10-12 days to remove the skin tag.
5. Castor Oil:
Prepare a paste by mixing a bit of castor oil with baking powder, and apply it on the skin tags for 2- 4 weeks.
6. Banana Peel:
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.
7. Duct Tape:
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.
