How To Remove Skin Tags?

Skin tags are a type of benign skin growth that look like a tiny flap of skin. There are medical treatments, but in many cases, insurance will not cover them. But, you can opt for a number of natural skin tag removal methods. Just be mindful of the location of your skin tag and if it is near your eyes, it is best to have a professional remove it. If it is elsewhere on the body, there is no harm in using natural ways for skin tag removal at home.

1. Vitamin E


You need to rub the vitamin E oil on to the lesion two times a day. This will help you remove the skin tags in 1 – 2 weeks. Combine vitamin E oil with garlic and let it rest overnight for better results.

2. Fig Stem Juice


Fig stem juice is widely used for skin issues because it helps to balance the alkaline-acid balance. To create this juice, grab some fresh fig stems and blend them to extract the juice. You can apply this juice to the skin tag up to four times a day.

3. Ginger


Rub slices of raw ginger on the affected area for about 2 weeks and the skin tag is supposed to fall off eventually.

4. Fenugreek Seeds


The properties of fenugreek seeds help in skin tag removal. Soak fenugreek seeds overnight in water and drink this water in the morning before having breakfast. You can even chew the soaked fenugreek seeds.

5. Tea Tree Oil


In order to use this remedy, clean the skin tag and take a cotton ball soaked in water. Add 3 drops of tea tree oil to the soaked cotton ball. Now apply it directly to the skin tag in circular motions. Repeat this 1-2 times daily for a week or 10 days until the lesion vanishes.

6. Castor Oil


Castor oil can be used both internally and externally. It can be used as an external ointment by mixing it with a little baking soda to make a paste. You can also add some citrus oil to the paste as it will be very stinky. Apply this paste on the affected area and use a band aid to cover it. Repeat this for 2 – 4 weeks or until the skin tag disappears.

7. Apple Cider Vinegar


Apple cider vinegar is very effective in removing skin tags. Apply a small dab of vinegar on cotton ball or a q-tip and apply it on the skin tag. After you apply vinegar, it may cause a stinging sensation for a few minutes. Use it for two to four weeks for the skin tags to vanish.

8. Lemon Juice


Lemon juice contains citric acid which helps decompose the cells in the skin tags. Dab some lemon juice onto a cotton ball and apply it directly on the skin tag. Leave it on the affected area till it dries off. You will notice some changes in the skin tags after applying lemon juice for few days. In due course of time, the skin tag will dry out and vanish. Just have patience and apply this remedy daily.

9. Oregano Oil


Oregano oil contains thymol, arvacrol and p-cymene – three types of phenolic terpenoids components – and these have powerful antibacterial properties. They also contain antimelanomic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and antiseptic properties. Create a mixture of four to six drops of coconut oil and two to three drops of oregano oil and apply this directly to your skin tag three times a day. This should dry out the skin tag so that it falls off on its own. Make sure to always use a carrier oil to dilute the oregano oil or else you risk redness and irritation. This oil also must never be used near your eyes.

When I went to the doctor who used to also be our family doc as a kid, he was old school all he did was dab it with iodine and cut them off. Didn't even hurt. I have only a few some people have alot . mine are usually around the collar or around the arm pit. He said they are common where clothing rubs more. So I just do the same iodine or alcohol clean well and snip with a maniure size scissors that was soaked in alcohol. If they bleed its only a drop or two. Now that's just me. I'm a busy mom and won't remember to keep dabbing oils or acv so many times a day. But I don't cut off anything that looks likes mole or a skin tag that is brown. After removal I clean again and put a bandaid on if need be. I can tolerate pain pretty well I have chronic pain from surgeries years ago so this is nothing.

What about an infection. I've heard that before I have two I've had for forever very embarrassing and one is on my lady parts (between my thigh and my kitty lol) and it's so gross I hate it I've wanted to get rid of it but can't. So if this works I'll try I just don't have time to get any infections lol

Also tie it off w dental floss or fishing line and it will fall off. I like Gingers idea. Put little deodorant on qtip and dab on to stop any bleeding.

Hold ice on the skin to numb the tag. Then stretch it out (they stretch). Snip it off close to the skin with small sharp scissors. Put some antibiotic ointment and a band-aid. Successful bathroom surgery.

ACV works great but you have to pierce the skin tag for it to work quickly.
