How To Remove Skin Tags Safely

Author : Mario Cora

When looking into how to remove skin tags, there are some matters that need to be considered. It is natural to want to know what these are. It is also natural to wonder why someone would want eliminate one. And finally, it is natural to wonder what methods are available for that purpose.

Basically, these fairly common growths are benign and usually occur when skin irritates skin. That is likely why the majority of these appear on the uncovered areas of the body: arms and legs, neck, armpits. Victims want to remove them for several reasons. Embarrassment is one reason, especially on exposed and visible areas of the body. Safety is another big reason. There is the fear that a tag could tear and bleed. There is the fear that if irritated, one of these could become infected.

Among the wide range of possible removal methods is surgery. Natural methods are also available. Freezing, burning or drying the bumps are other choices. Drying causes them to fall off after flaking over the growth. For those who are courageous and nimble of finger, another option is home surgery. There is no shortage of options.

Surgical removal is safe because of the sterile surroundings and skills of the doctor. However, there is always the drawback and strong possibility of scarring. There is always some time involved in healing no matter how minor the surgical procedure. Some patients might have some minor pain during the process. There is also the financial cost of the procedure and the trip to the office.

Of the other choices, freezing or burning can also be done in a doctor's office. Similar to surgery, there could be minimal scarring. Minor as this seems to someone not afflicted, to anyone trying to get rid of these tags, the unsightly appearance of a scar is as much as concern as the existing problem.

Victims who are strong-willed, not queasy, and nimble fingered might choose to cut these off at home. Using scissors, however, could risk infection in a non-sterile arena. The other oft-suggested method is string-cutting. A piece of string or dental floss is tied around the growth between the tag and the surface, and pulled tightly to tear it away. This requires agility and nimble, cooperating fingers. Again, scarring could result.

When it comes to natural substances applied to the growths, there are many home remedies as well as prepared products specifically for this purpose. Nature provides some of life's own best solutions to problems. Experimenting randomly with each method can take untold amounts of time, patience, and often, cause disappointment. There are, however, some natural products that have proven themselves over time. These solutions include herbs, botanical substances and other natural oils and pastes. Most work on the basis of drying the tag and allowing the dead cells to fall off naturally. Rarely is scarring a result. It is probably best to consider preparations that have proven themselves over time.

Safely removing a skin tag requires some thought and a lot of choices. Most victims prefer as little discomfort as possible. However, the option of choosing a natural method deserves some consideration.
