Skin Tag Removal At Home

Skin tags are small piece of soft hanging skin that appear on any part of the body, they are found especially on body folds where friction occurs such as the neck, arm pits, under the breast, groin and eyelids. Generally, skin tags are harmless, but it can easily become irritation, especially when rub against jewelleries, cloths etc. There are several methods for skin tag removal at home such as:

Removing Skin Tags with Strings

This method involves constricting the flow of oxygen and blood by tying off skin tags. After some time the skin tag will gradually darken and fall off. You can get someone to help you or try out the TagBand Device as it makes the process a lot easier. Before wrapping the tag, make sure that the whole area is sanitized and disinfected to avoid infection and then tie tightly with a string or any other suitable material. The idea is to ensure that the tag receives no blood supply throughout the period of treatment. After about 2-4 days the tag will turn black and fall off by itself or you may have to remove it manually with clippers. This technique is called Ligation medically.

Dental Floss

This is an alternative method that can be used in removing skin tags. Dental floss can be can use on any part of the body. The dental floss is used to tie a knot tightly around the base of the skin tag to block the flow of blood to the affected area. The skin tag will slowly disappear after about 2 – 3 weeks.

Duct Tape

Apply duct tape on the skin tag and after 7 days remove the duct tape, the skin tag will fall off with the duct tape.

Nail Polish

Cover the skin tag completely with nail polish and leave it in place until it gets dry. Repeat the same procedure 2 or 3 times more using fresh nail polish and the tag will gradually fade off.

Nail Clippers

You can also remove the lesions with nail clippers or scissors, but it can easily lead to bleeding and infection. The first step is to sterilize the clippers/scissors and the infected area with isopropyl and then numb the skin with an ice pack. Pull the skin tag away from the body and then cut it off with the clippers. Firmly press it with a sterilized gauze pad to stop the bleeding and apply an antibiotic once the bleeding stops.

Other natural methods for removing skin tags including the use of:

  •  Tea Tree Oil
  •  Lemon juice
  •  Pineapple juice
  •  Garlic
  •  Vitamin E

For many of these natural methods all you have to do is clean the skin tag using a cotton ball soaked in water. Then add 3 drops of the juice/oil to the cotton ball and apply directly to the lesions. Repeat the procedure for 1-2 weeks until the skin tag fades.

Note- Before you try any of the above methods for removing skin tags, ensure that you are completely certain that you are dealing with a skin tag. They usually have a pigmentation similar to our skin.
