Skin tags are benign growth on the skin surface and usually found on neck, armpits, underarms, around eyes, breasts, or groin. Medically speaking, they are harmless, but they can dramatically lower a person’s self-esteem. This means it is advisable to get them treated as quickly as possible. These conspicuous tags can be treated surgically, but surgeries are expensive, and in many cases, insurance won’t cover them.
Hence, it is better to rely on proven natural remedies for treating skin tags. Below mentioned are 7 such amazing natural remedies, all proven scientifically, to deal with skin tags. Take a look:
Tea tree oil
Unarguably, tea tree oil is a painless and effective way to remove skin tags from your body. Thanks to its anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, tea tree oil plays a pivotal role in drying out skin tags so that they fall off on their own. If the application of tea tree oil is giving your irritation, then dilute it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, before its application.
Another proven remedy for treating skin tags is about applying crushed garlic to the skin tags and covering it with a bandage. Garlic is a fantastic herb to be kept in the pantry. It’s antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties are excellent for treating skin tags.
It is a good idea to rub coconut oil into the skin tags every night before going to bed. Doing this will help in reducing skin tags of all sizes. Since it contains lauric acid, it helps to kill viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
Oil of oregano is helpful in giving relief from skin tags. Apply this oil directly to the skin tags three times a day. Then, once it is dried, cover it with a bandage. Follow this process almost daily until the skin tag dries and falls off.
If your skin is sensitive, dilute oregano oil with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar works well for treating skin tags. Directly apply the vinegar to the skin tag and let it stay there for up to 15 minutes. Repeat this process thrice a day to see effective results. You will notice darkening of the skin tag before it finally falls off.
Avoid applying this vinegar near the eyes.
Castor oil too is highly effective in treating skin tags. Take some castor oil, add some baking soda and form a thick paste. Now apply this mixture on the skin tag.
That’s right. Take an aspirin tablet, crush it to form a powder. Then, apply this powder on the skin tag and seal it using a duct tape. It works!
Although skin tags are harmless, they are highly conspicuous and can cause a bit of a humiliation, especially in social and work life. So, give a try to these natural remedies and see positive results for yourself.
