If some people are to be believed, skin tags may be cancerous. But skin tags, in general, are not at all cancerous. But we are not ruling out the possibility that, given time, skin tags can become malignant. That’s why there is a need to be extra careful when assessing your skin tags. If it turns out that the skin tags are not at all dangerous, you can just leave them be. But if you wish to remove them due to cosmetic reasons, then you can do so by using simple home remedies. You can try using the extracts of some herbs. Examples are Thuja occidentalis or Riccinus communis. Skin tags are known to succumb and vanish in the face of pastes that are made from the combination of various herbs.
When you use a combination drug, the effect will be better than using the single drug. The positive effects of the different components mixed together will accumulate, increasing the potency of the drug. You can expect the same good results at a fast pace when you also combine these skin tag removal herbs into one combination treatment. The skin tag remedies that involve the use of dental floss or vitamin E or nail polish are discussed below. You may be baffled by what dental floss has to do with skin tags.
Try asking around and you will find that not a lot of people are aware about what castor oil can do for them. It can be used even in the treatment of skin tags in different region of the body. Not only is this available locally, it can also be bought cheaply. There are no side effects associated with the use of castor oil. That explains why it has always been hugely popular as a skin tag removal remedy. It is also a known fact that you can use nail polish to remove your unwanted skin tags. The nail polish can be applied directly on the skin tags or it can be applied using the cotton swab. You will achieve the same results. The advantage of using cotton would be the even distribution of the nail polish. The results will be faster and more noticeable in a shorter amount of time. Do this treatment for 3 days. This works by dehydrating the skin tag until such time that they fall off of their own volition.
Skin tag removal can also be done with the use of dental floss. The reason why these flosses are so popular is because they do not have any side effects. There is also the fact that you will have to spend a lot of money if you try surgery. You can ignore the pain involved since it provides results faster. Duct tapes can also be used for this purpose. Make sure the skin tags are fully covered by the duct tape. You can do this for a minimum of thirty minutes up to a full hour.
Soon enough, you can easily separate the dried out skin tags from the external dermal layers and even the roots.
The skin tags will dry out and get separated from the outer dermal layer as well as from the interior regions. This separation will eventually lead to the skin tags falling off. You do not have to worry about this treatment being painful. If you compare these to the methods employed by doctors in clinics, the latter are far more abrasive and painful. If you use nail clippers and scissors, you will also achieve the same results.
