Skin tags are growths of skin that stick out from the skin surface. They normally form around the neck, upper chest, underarms and eyelids. The most common cause of skin tags is from skin rubbing against skin. The common treatments for skin tags include tying off, cutting off, and freezing. Nevertheless, there are some natural remedies available for you to use at home.
Tea Tree Oil
Skin Tags Gone has an excellent video on how to remove skin tags with tea tree oil. This process is a bit slower than most (up to one month) but is much safer for skin tags found around the eyes. All you need to do is soak a cotton ball with water and add a couple drops of tea tree oil. Then you dab the cotton ball on the skin tag and cover with a bandage. You repeat this process two to three times a day.
Baking Soda and Castor Oil
According to LiveStrong, a castor oil, and baking soda combination is a great way to remove skin tags. You mix the baking soda and castor oil together so that it forms a paste. You then apply the paste to the skin tag and cover with a bandage. Repeat the process two to three times a day and store extra paste in the fridge for up to 48 hours.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Skin Tags Gone also has a method for removing skin tags that involve apple cider vinegar. Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and squeeze it to remove any excess. Then dab the skin tag with the apple cider vinegar. You can leave the apple cider vinegar on for as long as you want, it does have a strong smell. It will take several days, but the skin tag will darken and fall off.
