Skin tags are an overgrowth and elongation of normal skin. Commonly skin tags occur in people between the ages of 40 and 60, but they can be present in anyone. Usually flesh colored, skin tags are simply the elongation of a small area of skin which occurs as the skin rubs against itself. Skin tags appear under the arms, breasts, and on the neck as well as the upper thighs and inguinal regions.
Many people are not bothered by the presence of skin tags. They may, however, become irritated, caught in clothing, or seem to multiply. Skin tags are not malignant and do not necessarily need to be removed. They can be unsightly, become irritated, bleed, and simply be announcing. Fortunately there are many effective ways of skin tag removal.
Some heavy duty skin tag treatments. (Fast & Effective Instant Results).
One option for skin tag removal is to consult a local physician. Freezing with liquid nitrogen or clipping the skin tags off after numbing with a local aesthetic are both effective and safe methods of skin tag removal. However the combination of the cost of an office visit, procedure fee, and possibly a pathology charge could have a negative impact on your bank balance for what amounts to a cosmetic procedure.
Home options for skin tag removal are also options. Just as the doctor does, many people simply snip small skin tags off without the benefit of anaesthesia. In choosing this method, be sure to sterilise the instruments with either heat such as boiling water or a flame, or a chemical disinfectant made for such purposes. Placing a small amount of antibiotic ointment on the base will also help prevent infection. However, this method can be very painful.
I haven’t done this method myself as i chose to peruse a more natural treatment which ended up working super well. Check out my review here! However, i know some people prefer a more direct approach. For this method i would recommend MicroTag Skin Tag Removal Device. The device allows you to safely remove the tag without risk of infection. It has a tone of good reviews on amazon and for the reasonable price point a great option.
If you are serious about removing your skin tags without the doctor (NATURAL) – I highly recommend a treatment that finally shifted my ultra stubborn tags. I find that sometimes books and home remedies are enough to shift the every day smaller skin tags people get but in my case, mine was very, very stubborn. I gave Revitol Skin Tag Removal kit a go after reading a number of great reviews and it finally cleared the long standing tags! I was a little sceptical at first but after hearing it was all natural and reading the countless testimonials it put me at rest.
A simple home treatment worth a try.
Other options for home skin tag removal include tying thread or thin string tightly around the base. This removes the blood supply and the skin tag will fall off. Topical remedies are also effective. Mixing a paste of Castor oil and backing soda and applying it to the skin tags several times daily is a popular solution. There are also several over the counter topical remedies for skin tag removal which work within days.
