Best Home Remedies To Remove Skin Tags


People who suffer from obesity or overweight, diabetics and pregnant women are prone to have skin tags. Sometimes heredity is also a cause for skin tags. Skin tags equally affect males and females. Skin tags are caused due to the accumulation of blood vessels and collagen in the thicker parts of the skin. Scientifically, skin tags are called as acrochordon. Instead of rushing to the doctor, skin tags can be easily removed at home by trying out some simple home remedies.

Best Home Remedies To Remove Skin Tags



1 . Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil helps you control and cure many skin disorders, including skin tags and moles. In order to use this remedy, clean the skin tag and take a cotton ball soaked in water. Add 3 drops of tea tree oil to the soaked cotton ball. Now apply it directly to the skin tag in circular motions. Repeat this 1-2 times daily for a week or 10 days until the lesion vanishes.

2 . Dandelion Stem Juice


This juice can be used for a wide array of skin issues, including skin tags. Take a dandelion with the stem and extract the juice from the stem by squeezing it. A milky liquid comes out and you apply this liquid directly to the skin and then cover the area with a band-aid to keep it in place. Do this up to four times a day, making sure to thoroughly cleanse and dry the skin between applications. This works to dry out a skin tag so that it falls off. Do not use this remedy if you are allergic to daisies, marigolds, ragweed, chrysanthemums and other similar plants because there is a chance that if you are allergic to one of these you will also be allergic to dandelions.

3 . Oregano Oil

Oregano oil contains thymol, arvacrol and p-cymene – three types of phenolic terpenoids components – and these have powerful antibacterial properties. They also contain antimelanomic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and antiseptic properties. This oil has the potential to quickly take care of skin tags and on average it takes about a month. Create a mixture of four to six drops of coconut oil and two to three drops of oregano oil and apply this directly to your skin tag three times a day. This should dry out the skin tag so that it falls off on its own. Make sure to always use a carrier oil to dilute the oregano oil or else you risk redness and irritation. This oil also must never be used near your eyes.

4 . Banana Peel

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.

5 . Onion 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.

6 . Castor Oil And  Baking Soda


This is an easy skin tag removal method. Mix baking soda and castor oil and form a thick paste. Apply this paste on the skin tag and cover it. Leave it for a night. Wash it with warm water, the next morning. Repeat this process for about 10 days until the tag totally vanishes.

7 . Castor Oil

Castor oil can be used both internally and externally. It can be used as an external ointment by mixing it with a little baking soda to make a paste. You can also add some citrus oil to the paste as it will be very stinky. Apply this paste on the affected area and use a band aid to cover it. Repeat this for 2 – 4 weeks or until the skin tag disappears.

8 .
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.
