home remedies for skin tags

Skin tags are very common, they’re usually found on places like the neck, armpits, groin, eyelids etc. Places with lots of friction! Men and women can develop skin tags but they most occur in older people, people who are obese or people who have type 2 diabetes. Pregnant women also have an increased chance at developing skin tags due to the rapid changes in their hormones. 

While we’re not too sure what the exact reasons are – there are a few theories. Friction is the main cause, this is why skin tags tend to be in areas you would expect the skin to rub – like the arm pits, buttocks or eyelids. 

Now if you’re looking for a way to remove these quickly before the big day you might want to try some of these home remedies below or visit a specialist like Snowberry Lane

Just remember the bigger the skin tag the longer it will take to come off.  If at any point you’re worried that it is not a skin tag you should get it checked out. I would recommend talking to a GP or Doctor before trying to remove any tags yourself too. If you do have a small skin tag your doctor may recommend you remove it yourself anyway.

  1. Tea Tree Oil  – This is one of the most popular methods, tea tree oil can be extremely effective in treating skin tags. All you need to do is dip a cotton bud into a cup of the oil and gently rub it on the skin tag in circular motions. Do this a couple of times a day and you’ll see results soon enough.
  2. Apple Cider Vinegar – Apple Cider Vinegar is really effective for things like this. Same process as above – soak a cotton swab into the apple cider vinegar and swab it on the affected area. I’d do this for about a month though.
  3. Onion juice – You can cut an onion to get the juice from it. Simply rub the juice on the affected area and do this for at least a month.
  4. Aloe Vera – Well known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory perks it can be applied straight onto the affected skin. You’ll notice this will reduce discomfort and can sort our skin tags in several days. Try apply the Aloe Vera twice a day for 5 – 10 days.
  5. Nail polish is a brilliant way of removing skin tags at home. If you cover the skin completely with nail polish, let it dry and repeat this for 2-3 times a day you will see the skin tag fade away.

  6. Duct Tape – As mad as it sounds duct tape works. Stick duct tape on the skin tag for about two weeks.

  7. Tying off skin tags – You can tie thread or dental floss around the skin tag and wait for the blood flow to start cutting off. Then you can cut the skin tag off by using nail cutters or scissors. The Tag might turn blue or purple and become irritated but thats about it! this method actually isn’t sore at all! Once its off apply antibacterial cream over the area.
