Skin tags are nasty bumps which usually appear on the neck and armpit areas. Although they are harmless, it sure is pesky and unsightly having these tiny lumps hanging around.
I do get skin tags from time to time and I found that the most effective and painless way to get rid of these is to use these 2 kinds of herbal treatments.
1) Tea Tree Oil- Tea tree oil works were very effective for me, the oil is also used to help treat various skin disorders. Removing a skin tag is as easy as Soaking the cotton wool in the oil and applying it directly to the affected area. Repeat this twice a day until the skin tag dries up and falls off.
CAUTIONS: Please be aware that Tea Tree Oil does cause skin dryness, itching, stinging, burning, and even redness so do use a bit of it at a time and don’t apply an unnecessarily huge amount onto your skin.
2) Apple Cider Vinegar-Apple cider vinegar works very well. Using the same method as the tea tree oil.
CAUTIONS: Please kindly note that apple cider is acidic, using too much will cause your skin to sting or turn red, just apply small daps on those skin tags.
These methods take a couple of weeks to take effect and show results In this case patience is truly a virtue, it spears you a trip to the doctor and who would ever like to use duct tape to rip them out? With consistency, a little more time and effort, these nasty skin tags will shrivel up and eventually fall off. Removing skin tags in that manner is not worth bearing with the ouch factor.
