skin tags: How to remove Skin tags

Skin Tags(tvacha ke taigs)

Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are tiny flesh-colored skin growths that are painless and benign. Skin tags can form in places in the body that experience excessive friction such as the armpits, eyelids, groin, thighs, neck, and under the breasts. Men and women over 50 are more likely to develop non-cancerous skin growths that can be removed for aesthetic purposes.
Skin tags are practically harmless cutaneous growths on the skin that are predominantly composed of loose collagen fibers and blood vessels in the epidermis. They are known medically as acrochorda, fibroepithelial polyps, papillomas or soft fibromas and are typically flesh-colored or in some cases darkly pigmented.

Causes of skin tags

Research has been inconclusive about the cause of skin tags. There do seem to be a few common risk factors though. Research done at the Cleveland Clinic shows that women are more likely than men to get skin tags. Typically skin tags start to appear when you hit middle age. It is just a common skin ailment that is related to getting older. There appears to be a genetic predisposition to skin tags as well. If you have family members with skin tags you are more likely to get them as well. There are also some other health issues that seem to be linked to skin tags. If you have polycystic ovarian syndrome, hormonal imbalances, or a metabolic syndrome you may be more likely to develop skin tags as well.

Treatment of removal of skin tags

1.Stop blood supply:A skin tag removal band works by cutting off your supply of blood to the base of your skin tag. The idea is that without that blood, those cells die and your tag falls off in a process called ligation.

2.Creams of skin tags:Skin tag removal creams are also available OTC and can be effective. You apply the cream to your skin tag at least twice a day for a few weeks. Over time, it should dry out your tag, so it falls off.

3.Essential oils:This essential oil might help some skin conditions. But there is no reliable evidence that it will get rid of skin tags.

4.Apple cider vinegar:There isn’t much evidence to support the idea that apple cider vinegar can remove skin tags. Those daring peeps who want to try it will find it works similarly to tea tree oil:

✓Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar.

✓Two or three times every day, place the cotton ball over your tag with a bandage for 10 minutes.

✓Wait a few days or weeks for your tag to potentially fall off.
