These are harmless from a medical standpoint, but they can harm a person’s self-esteem so getting rid of them is a priority. These fleshy outgrowths are very small in size and appear deformed in shape. They usually occur on eyelids, neck, arms, lower part of the breast, and armpits. Skin tags can occur both in men and women. Instead of rushing to the doctor, skin tags can be easily removed at home by trying out some simple home remedies.
1.Onions juice: Cut an onion, and leave it overnight in a vessel containing some salt. Extract the juice from it, the next morning. Apply this juice every night on the skin tag for at least 10-12 days. It will completely remove the tag.
2.Castor oil: Mix a little castor oil with baking powder to form a paste. It can be very sticky. Keep repeating the process for two to four weeks, and you will notice the skin tag disappearing slowly.
3.Pineapple juice: This is one of the simplest ways to remove skin tags on skin. Apply pineapple juice every day at least 2-3 times, but don’t rinse it off. Repeat it for at least 10 days, until the skin tag is completely scraped off. Pineapple juice is also known to work on moles and warts.
4.Vinegar: This is one of the best home remedies for skin tags on the neck. Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply it over the skin tag. Use this remedy for about a month for complete removal of skin tag.
5.Banana peels: A banana peel also seems effective to remove skin tag. Cut a small piece of banana peel and place the inside part of it over the skin tag. Cover it firmly with gauze, and leave it overnight. Repeat this remedy daily until the skin tags fall off.
6.Nail polish: Nail polish is also a good way for removing skin tags at home. Apply nail polish over the area. Let it set and dry, then remove it. Repeat the process 3 times a day for a few days until you see visible results.
7.Lemon juice: Lemon juice is a powerful antiseptic and it also contains citric acid which helps to dry out skin tags by decomposing the cells. Take a half of a fresh lemon and apply the juice to a cotton ball. Apply this directly to the skin tag and leave it on without washing it off. You can apply this up to three times a day and continue the routine until the skin tag falls off.
8.Garlic: Fresh garlic has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which help to improve skin health and dry out skin tags. You need four fresh garlic cloves and then ground these up into a paste and apply the paste directly to the skin. Place a bandage over this to keep the paste in place.
