Herbal Treatments to Remove Skin Tags…

I could go over the typical remove a skin with duct tape or fingernail polish and they do work but can be painful. Instead, in this article I am going to focus on herbal remedies to treat skin tags. The upside to herbal remedies is that they are less invasive than other "fast" remedies. The downside is that they take a little more time and consistency in order for them to work....

Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil works very well for removing skin tags as well as moles. In fact, tea tree oil is used on various skin disorders. To use this all you need is a little tea tree oil and a cotton ball. Soak the cotton ball in the oil and apply it directly to the affected area. Do this once or twice daily for up to 4 weeks or until the skin tag vanishes.

Castor Oil
Most of you are too young to remember castor oil but this oil was used on a wide variety of common ailments and can be taken both internally and externally. The good news is that you will be using castor oil as an external ointment (I still shudder whenever I think of drinking that stuff). Here is what you will do. Take a little baking soda and mix it with the castor oil to create a paste. I suggest you add some citrus oil as it will stink to high heaven. Apply it to the affected area and cover with a band-aid. The typical time it will take is 2-4 weeks before the skin tag vanishes.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar works very well for removing skin tags and the good news is that you can buy it in a grocery store for fairly cheap. Just like tea tree oil, you simply dab some of it on a q-tip or cotton ball and apply it directly to the skin tag. Unlike the tea tree oil, Apple Cider vinegar may cause a stinging sensation for a couple minutes after being applied. Typical time until the skin tag vanishes?..2-4 weeks.

Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera is good for any skin condition. Massage it onto your skin daily. Apply the aloe vera juice directly on the skin tag. Because of its ability to health any kind of skin disorders so it is used as a main in gradient in many skin care products

Lemon Juice
Lemon juice contains citric acid, which helps you in decomposing off the cells in the skin tags. Dab some lemon juice onto a cotton ball and apply it directly on the skin tag. Leave it on the affected area till it dries. You will notice some changes in the skin tags after a applying it for few days and in due course the skin tag will dry out and vanish.

Banana Peel
Banana peel is a good remedy for skin tags. To use it cut the banana peel into small pieces. Put the peel on the affected area and hold it securely with a bandage. Take care that the inside of the peel comes in contact with the affected skin area. Let it rest overnight and repeat this process daily until the skin tag falls off.

Dental Floss
Another method to get rid of skin tags. It can be used on any body part. In order to use this dental floss, tie a knot tightly around the base of the skin tag close to your body. After a period of 2 – 3 weeks the skin tags will become smaller and will disappear in due course. This helps in killing the skin tag by blocking blood flow temporarily to the affected area.

Apply some crushed garlic juice onto the affected area and cover it with a band. Take care that you change the band and the garlic juice at least thrice a day.

Those are just herbal treatments that you can use to remove skin tags. If you don't mind waiting a couple weeks and can discipline yourself to treating the skin tag at least once a day, then these will naturally treat your skin tags from your home.
