I am sure you’ve seen skin tags before. They are those little soft moles that grow on your neck, armpits, eye lids and your groin. They are very popular and a lot of older people have them.
When they start growing, they look really tiny and almost impossible to notice. All you’ll see is a tiny dot the size of a pin head. Then, over a long time, they start growing and form little pimples. Although they usually stop there, there have been cases of skin tags growing to a size of a lemon or even an orange.
Fortunately, most of the time, they are perfectly harmless, which means that if you’re able to live with them, you’ll most likely be just fine. The thing is that it’s pretty annoying to have them especially if they are located in places where you can easily see them, like on your neck for instance.
Those little stinkers do have a tendency to grow in groups as well. Sometimes you’ll have just one in a particular area, other time you’ll see a whole group of them, which makes them, of course even more noticeable.
So, what should you do when you find one?
Well, obviously, you should see a doctor so that you’re properly diagnosed. I mean, something may look like a mole, but in fact really have nothing to do with one. If you’re not careful, there is a chance you’ll mistake a skin tag with cancer. I am sure you don’t want to run that risk, do you?
Once you’re positive that what is growing on your skin is a skin tag, you can look around for some natural methods to remove it, if you want to.
There are a few things you can do to get rid of them and I would like to tell you about them.
1. Tea tree oil.
Obviously. If you’ve read about warts, growths and other funny stuff like that, you probably already know that you can apply so tea tree oil to those things ind they’ll go away.
2. Cutting it off.
This one is a bit more dangerous than all the other methods because of sanitary issues. You don’t want to get yourself in trouble because of an infection you’ve developed as a result of cutting off a skin tag, I am sure. Just be careful as you do this and sterilize your “instruments”.
3. Castrol and baking soda.
The last thing you can try is taking some castrol and mixing it with baking soda until you get a pasty mixture. Then take that and apply it to your skin tags. Easy stuff.
Skin tags are not necessarily dangerous but they are annoying. If you remove them, you’ll probably feel a bit better about yourself, so go ahead and do. Just be careful.
