Removing skin tags with a string

April 16, 2008

          One way for removing skin tags at home is to cut off the blood supply to their tissues. By doing this, the cells that make up those tissues die and you get rid of your skin tags. 

          This method of skin tag home removal consists on tying a thin string around the base of the skin tag for a couple of days (about three days) until it falls off. 

          You can use a dental floss, a fishing line or a sewing thread. Just make sure the string is tied very well and be patient for about three days.

April 15, 2008

        Tea tree oil is extracted from a plant called Melaleuca Alternifolia. This plant was used for hundreds of year by Australian aboriginals to treat many skin diseases. In this article you will learn how to use tea tree oil in removing skin tags

        If you want to use tea tree oil for skin tags, you’ll just need to wash your skin tags with soap and water and let them dry out. Then, soak a Cotton ball in water and put a few drops of tea tree oil on it. You’ll then rub the cotton ball against your skin tags.

        This is a safe way to remove skin tags, but it takes a good deal of patience and consistency on your part. In fact you’ll have to repeat the procedure above 3 times a day for as long as it takes to get rid of the skin tags.

Removing skin tags with surgery

April 14, 2008

      There are three surgical procedures for removing skin tags.

      One of these methods consists on freezing skin tags using liquid Nitrogen at -196°C. The tissues of the skin tags can’t survive this low temperature and they fall off immediately.

      The other way for removing skin tags consists on cauterizing (or burning) the skin tags using laser.

      Finally,  The third method consists on cutting off skin tags using a scalpel or scissors. Off course, it’s up to your doctor to determine which of these procedures is more appropriate to you.

     It is important to note here that the cost of removing skin tags with surgery is not covered by most insurance plans and that’s why many people prefer to use alternative home removal methods.
