Have you been wondering for a long time about how to get rid of skin tags? Don’t think you are alone. Lots of people suffer with this problem, but very few people actually know how to get rid of them.
Let’s first understand that a skin tag is only a small piece of skin that protrudes from your body like a plant stalk or a tiny offshoot. They are not a deadly skin related infection nor are they dangerous in any way so don’t get too worried.
If you suspect that you have a skin tag remember that it is not an indication of any kind of infection. Sometimes it can be caused because of a material that you wore. Unless it becomes painful, there is no need for you to worry unnecessarily over it or have it removed.
Remember they can appear anywhere, but they normally tend to appear near the armpit, under the breast, near the neck, eyelid and groin area.
Here are some home remedies that you may want to try:
You can use clear finger nail polish as it is one of the best ways to get rid of skin tags. You have to cover it with finger nail polish and let it stay on till the nail polish dries. Do this at least twice during the day, gradually you will find that it will shrink and completely get weeded out.
Another more drastic way of removing a skin tag is to opt to cut it off. You will need to use a pair of well sterilized scissors or you can also use a pair of disinfected nail clippers to cut it off.
It is good if you can apply a generous amount of alcohol and rub the area where the tag is located. After doing this, snip it from the base using a scissors. As soon as you are done stop the bleeding with an instant application of peroxide and put some pressure on the area also.
