Skin Tag Removal Home Remedy

How to Remove Skin Tags

facial skin tags

Although skin tags are safe, many people that are influenced by them discover it difficult to bear with the circumstances especially if they expand in extremely sensitive locations such as the face. Skin tag removal includes no intricate procedures in contrast to mole removal. This page discusses numerous reliable means through which you could eliminate skin tags.


We may not know the correct terminology to use when a small piece of hanging skin forms under our arms, or on the neck, breasts, groin or eyelids. Although these skin growths may vary in appearance; they can be smooth or wrinkled, slightly brown or flesh coloured and be a small size bump or be as large as a grape, the end result is the same: they are annoying.


The medical profession calls them Cutaneous Papilloma or Acrochordons, but they are better known as skin tags. When a skin tag is small we tend to ignore it or live with it, but chances are it will continue to grow and become a cosmetic issue rather than a life-threatening malignant growth. Skin tags appear on nearly half of the population in adulthood, but children may develop them under the arms or on the neck. They seem to occur in areas where there is skin friction and they are common in people who are overweight.


Home remedies that help with skin tags.


Doctors use several medical procedures to remove skin tags. Freezing, burning, scissors and laser treatments are effective, but these procedures can be costly. There are several home remedies available to get rid of skin tags and they may surprise you because they are so simple. Duct tape is one of those items that serve us in a variety of situations and getting rid of skin tags is one of them. Cover the skin tag with duct tape for two or three days and it should start to fall off if not, use a fresh piece of tape and wait another two days.


Only for those serious about removing their skin tags.


If you are serious about removing your skin tags, I highly recommend you check out the book “Moles, Warts, and Skin Tag Removal”. Not a very unique name, but definitely delivers! Check out my full personal review of it here:

Moles, Warts, & Skin Tags Removal Review Worth it!


Some lesser-known treatments that also work.

Fingernail polish works as well. Cover the skin tag with polish about three times a day for two weeks and the skin tag should dry out and fall off. Castor oil, Edgars favourite remedy, is another great way to remove skin tags. Mix a little baking powder with castor oil, so it becomes a paste and applies that blend to the skin tag three times a day until it falls off. There are also herbal remedies that will remove skin tags, but if you want to remove them without spending a lot of money get the duct tape, fingernail polish or the castor oil out and let them work their magic.


Home Remedy For Removing Skin Tags


Lemon juice

Lemon juice

Lemon juice is another popular skin tag treatment, and some find it effective due to its acidic properties. Take a cotton ball and soak it in lemon juice, ensuring that the area covering the tag is thoroughly covered. Repeat this application process several times a day until you see results. You may find this is a much speedier solution than either pineapple or onion juice, as a result of the increased potency of the liquid.


Pineapple Juice

Using pineapple juice as a natural skin tag removal solution is even simpler. As with the onion juice, apply pineapple juice several times a day; take care not to rub it off once applied. This allows it to set and really work on breaking down the tag. Alike the onion juice, expect 10-14 day’s worth of application before you see tangible results. At the end of this period, the skin tag may have fallen off, or be easy to scrape off manually.



With cryotherapy, the skin tag is frozen and hence creating the cells inside to die. As a result, the tag will diminish.
