I’m sure some people keep asking themselves on how to get rid of skin tags at home. I remember my mom used to have some skin tags but it was removed by a physician using the method of Cauterization – the process where skin tag is burned off using electrolysis. But I personally like simple and non surgical procedure to get rid of those nasty tags using home remedies as follows.
a.) Using soft cotton ball, apply tea tree oil to the tags at least 3 to 4 times a day, it will help your skin tags to become dry and fall off easily.
b.) Make a mixture of Castor oil and baking soda to form a paste and apply like topical paste on the skin tags.
c.) Tie a thin string like dental floss or sewing thread around the skin tag’s base for couple of days, this will cause the death of its tissues by cutting off the blood supply to the skin tag.
d.) For twice a day, use fingernail polish to entirely cover the skin tag. Once the nail polish will dries out, it can cause the skin tag to shrink and eventually disappear for 2 weeks.
e.) Or you can opt for a more drastic way by using a disinfected scissors or nail clippers and snip them off. Make sure to have the peroxide ready in case bleeding will occur which is inevitable.
