What are some home remedies for skin tags?


Answer by  nursepractitionerlisa (793)

Duct tape may work. Vinegar applied directly may work. You can try strangling them with a piece of thread, leaving it tied for a week or two and let it die and fall off. You can try snipping them off with scissors but it may hurt and bleed a lot.

A very small skin tag can often be scratched away fairly easily. Larger tags can be treated by using a home freezing kit similar to those used for removing warts at home. You can also tie a string tightly around the base of the skin tag and it will die and fall off due to lack of blood flow.

Try tying thread, hair, or thin nylon around the base of the skin tag until it falls off. Another remedy is to apply cotton ball dipped in apple cider vinegar three times a day. Applying paste of castor oil and baking soda mixture and putting band aid with Vitamin E on skin tags are also good home remedies.
