skin tags cureStarting off as small growths of skin, skin tags are easiest to treat in their early stages. While many people are looking for a skin tags cure, it is relatively easy to treat and get rid of those annoying tags or flaps that hang off the skin. It is difficult to call such treatment a cure as skin tags might appear again in the same or even a different area in the future. Nevertheless, any current skin tags can be successfully eliminated.

Skin tags are a common condition and appear more in women than men. Their appearance is often linked to ageing, diabetes or obesity. The growths appear on various parts of the body with the most likely places being the eyelids, nose, cheek, neck, armpits, upper chest or even the groin - all places where the skin is looser and more relaxed. If you see one skin tag, the chances are that there will be more. Although harmless, they can be a nuisance when they catch on clothing or jewellery or if we shave them by mistake. They can even become inflamed and painful. Each skin tag has its own blood supply so they may bleed if rubbed hard. It is this independent blood supply that feeds the tag and enables it to grow larger.

Skin tags are benign (that is non-cancerous) and they are not a symptom of some larger underlying medical condition (except in the case of anal skin tags). It is usually easy to identify skin tags but if you are not sure, it is safer to have them diagnosed by a medical practitioner. Once you have ascertained that the growths are in fact skin tags, you may well ask how to cure skin tags.

There are several different treatments for skin tags and these are listed below:

These three methods do come with the risk of some scarring so it is advisable to use a natural scar-prevention product in conjunction with the procedure.

There are also skin tag removal procedures you can carry out in the comfort of your own home but because skin tags often appear in hard-to-reach places, such as on the back of the neck, it can be helpful to have someone else help you.
