Skin Tags Home Remedies & Natural Solution

skin tags


Skin tags are prevalent.

Skin tags can appear and grow bigger on various body parts, especially in areas where the skin is more relaxed–around the eyes, under the armpits, on the neck, or even in the groin areas, including the vagina and anus.

Skin tags are usually benign and do not require treatment unless they are causing discomfort or are growing in an area where they get caught on clothing or jewelry. However, if the skin tags cause embarrassment or irritation, there are various ways to remove them, from surgical to natural skin tag removal methods.

What are skin tags, what do they look like, and what causes them? 

  • Some skin tags often look like a growth that hangs off the skin in the form of a peduncle or a small thick piece of skin. Skin tags are not dangerous but can cause discomfort in an area with many contacts, such as a shirt collar on a neck or the groin area when walking. View our skin tag photo gallery.
  • The exact cause of skin tags is unknown; however, they are thought to be related to skin rubbing against skin or clothing. 
  • Skin tags are more common in people who are overweight or obese. Along with growing older being a contributing factor, other causes of skin tags include pregnancy, obesity, and diabetes.
  • Those bodybuilders who use steroids can cause skin tags due to the effects of the pills or drugs they are ingesting. Steroid use can cause the collagen fibers to bond in such a way that may promote skin tag growth.
  • Changes in hormones in a woman's body can also cause skin tags to grow.
  • Insulin rejection, which may be caused by diabetes or some other factor in the body, can affect the growth of skin tags. 

Skin tags can be confused with warts.

Skin tags can sometimes be mistaken for other skin conditions, such as moles or warts, as they appear in similar areas but are usually dense and more irregular in shape. Unlike skin tags, warts are contagious. They do not dangle like skin tags but have a cylindrical shape with pink or white hues. They can even appear in clumps on the skin and even resemble cauliflowers. Although warts can be unsightly, they are not usually painful and are caused by a virus–namely HPV, short for Human Papillomavirus.

How can skin tags be removed?

Once you see skin tags appear, you can treat them at home with a natural formula that will not cause pain, burning, or scarring–and is safe to use for sensitive skin. And that formula is H-Skin Tags Formula, a natural alternative for removing skin tags, made up of a pure blend of ingredients designed to work quickly and effectively without any pain or scarring. The formula is safe for skin tags all over the body, including under the arms, neck, face, and even in sensitive areas.

Many of those who discover skin tags may be tempted to try and remove them by tying fine thread around the base of the skin tag, cutting off the blood supply so that, in time, the skin tag will die and drop off. Others might snip off skin tags with a pair of scissors. Neither is recommended as they can lead to infection and even bleeding.

H-Skin Tags Formula is all-natural.

Skin Tag Medical Procedure

There are several medical ways to remove skin tags, and these methods include:

  • Surgical excision–this is achieved by cutting out the skin tag under either local or general anesthesia in the doctor's rooms or the operating theatre. This can be painful when the anesthetic wears off, plus there can be scarring.

  • Ligation – This is a procedure where a dermatologist or other medical professional uses a small thread or suture to tie off the base of the skin tag, cutting off the blood supply and causing it to dry up and fall off within a few days to a week.

  • Cryotherapy – where the skin tags are frozen with liquid nitrogen, helping to destroy the cell tissue. There may be some minor pain, and scarring and this method should not be applied to the same area more than once a week.
  • Electrocautery is carried out in a health professional's office or clinic, where a local anesthetic is used for pain control. This procedure removes larger skin tags by burning them with a low-voltage electrified probe to stop bleeding. Medical scissors cut off the skin tag entirely before the wound is cauterized or pressure applied to stop bleeding. Electrocautery recovery takes 2 to 4 weeks, and scarring is possible.
  • Lasers are used to eliminate skin tags while simultaneously re-surfacing the skin, producing good cosmetic results.
  • Electrosurgery or electrolysis is an effective way to get rid of skin tags. This procedure is usually performed by a professional who uses an electric needle to destroy the skin tag growth and any additional growth beneath the skin. Electrolysis is generally fast and permanent but with minor scarring.

Home Remedies For Skin Tags

There are some skin tag home remedies that people use to try to remove skin tags. It's important to note that there is limited scientific evidence to support their effectiveness and safety, and it's best to consult a medical professional before trying any natural remedies. Some of the natural remedies that people use to try to remove skin tags include:

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar: Some people apply apple cider vinegar to the skin tag and cover it with a bandage, believing that the acid in the vinegar will cause the skin tag to dry up and fall off.
  2. Tea Tree Oil: Some people apply tea tree oil to the skin tag and cover it with a bandage, believing that the oil will cause the skin tag to dry up and fall off.
  3. Garlic: Some people apply crushed garlic to the skin tag and cover it with a bandage, believing that the garlic will cause the skin tag to dry up and fall off.
  4. Iodine: Some people apply iodine to the skin tag, believing that it will cause the skin tag to dry up and fall off.
  5. Duct Tape: Some people cover the skin tag with duct tape, believing that the tape will cause the skin tag to dry up and fall off.

It's important to note that skin tags are benign growths that typically appear on the skin. They do not require treatment unless they are causing discomfort or are located in an area where skin tags can be easily caught. Natural remedies may not be suitable for all skin tags or may cause irritation, pain, or bleeding. Consult a medical professional, such as a dermatologist, for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
