Skin tags or acrochordon are skin growths that are completely harmless but cosmetically a great concern.
They are tiny skin-colored or flesh colored tissue projecting from the skin with a narrow stalk. Often people call them ‘skin tabs’ or ‘barnacles’.
The common locations where skin tags usually appear are underarms, neck, groin fold, eyelids and below the breasts.
Easy and simple ways to treat skin tags
Here are some non-invasive ways to get rid of skin tags.
Tea Tree Oil-
Tea tree oil has profound uses in curing skin disorders. This amazing oil can treat skin tags as well as moles. Simply take some drops of tea tree oil on a cotton ball and apply directly on the affected area. Repeat the process twice or thrice a day for 4 weeks and the skin tag will vanish.
Castor oil has some amazing properties and is used both internally and externally. Make a fine paste by mixing baking soda and castor oil and to avoid the intense odor add some drops of citrus oil. Apply the paste on the skin tags and cover with a band-aid. The skin tag will fall off in 2-4 weeks.
Apple Cider Vinegar-
Apple cider vinegar is another simple remedy for treating skin tags. Just like tea tree oil dab some apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and apply directly on the affected region.
You might experience stinging sensation for few minutes but it is transients and will soon disappear. The skin tag will vanish in 2-4 weeks.
These three herbal treatments are simple and effective in removing skin tags without any invasive techniques.
