Skin tags are small skin growths that are usually benign, which is to say they’re harmless. They most frequently appear in middle age and on parts of the body where the skin overlaps. Doctors think these abnormal growths are triggered by the constant rubbing of skin on skin.
As stated previously, they rarely present any serious health threat, but they’re frequently removed either because they are unattractive or because they’ve become inflamed and sore. Fortunately, the process of removing a skin tag is relatively quick, simple and painless (learn more at http://www.mole-wart-removal-guide.com/skin-tag-removal-at-home)
More and more people are relying on natural home remedies to get rid of their skin tags. There’s mounting evidence that many of these remedies work as well as traditional medical treatments.
Some of the more popular home remedies in use today include a sodium bicarbonate and castor oil concoction, which is rubbed on the tag daily. Another is to use Tea Tree Oil, which is also rubbed on the tag daily. Finally, you tie a piece of thread or dental floss around the base of the tag until it falls off.
Before selecting one of these home removal methods, however, you might want to talk to your personal physician. That way you can be certain you’re dealing with a harmless skin tag as opposed to something more serious.
