There are many ways to get rid of your ugly skin tags. It is very embarrassing when others notice those tangling pieces of skin hanging underneath your armpits or on your neck. Nevertheless, a lot of people have to deal with skin tags on a daily basis. I read that doctors state that fifty percent of their patients have to deal with this skin problem. In my article, I will explain the top ways to remove your skin tags completely on your own in your own home. It is possible that you will need the assistance of another person, such as your spouse to aid in the removal of a tag of skin.
First of all, I wanted to mention that skin tags are not dangerous all all. Some feel that they are a sign of cancer, but this is not true. They are harmless growths of skin that are benign in nature. In some instances, they can become discolored due to a thrombosis. A thrombosis will cause the skin to turn a black or a purplish color. In 99 percent of cases, this condition is no reason to freak out. However, it is always advisable to see a skin specialist to ensure that you just have a skin tag that has extra blood in it. It is possible, that your skin problem is due to another health issue that your doctor can verify. I have heard of cases where a family doctor has taken samples or a biopsy of a skin tag.
You hear different names for the common skin tag: skin tags and even barnacles. A tag can sometimes look like a wart and some people treat it as if it is mistakenly. Medical professionals may call a skin tag a cuteneous papilloma, an acrochordon, or a fibroepithelial polyp. Luckily, a lot of doctors will refer to them simply as skin tags.
My first method for home removal of a skin tag is very easy to perform. There are two steps to this method. You have to ensure that the skin tag is large enough for you to be able to grab a hold of it. In the second place, the tag must be in a location that allows you to have access to it with both of your hands. If the skin tag is not easily assessable, perhaps located deep in your armpit, you will have to get someone to help you with the removal.
Now what you will need to do is to take a tiny string or a piece of thread that is strong. Some people have used a small piece of line used for fishing. Now you have to loop the string, thread or fishing line. Next, you have to position the looped threat over the top of the skin tag and then gently pull it tight until it tightly squeezes the base of the skin tag. Note the threat or string in place and cut off the edges of it so that it is not visible easily. After a period of three to five days, the tag should have had fallen off.
The second home system for tag removal is to use tea tree oil on it. If are unsure of where to purchase this specialized oil, check at your local pharmacy. Next you have to clean thoroughly the surface of the tag using soapy water. Ensure that you dry off the area with a clean towel. Add two drops of the tea tree oil onto a cotton ball and then add a small amount of water to the ball to moisten it. Now just gently dab the tag with the wet cotton ball. Before you cover up the tag, make sure that you have allowed it to air dry so that the oil is not going to drip off. Do these same steps 2 times a day until the tag has fallen off.
