        When NOT to try alternative remedies for removing skin tags: 

        You should never try to remove a skin tag by yourself in these two cases:

Removing skin tags with scissors or nail clippers

April 29, 2008

                   The fastest way for removing skin tags is to cut them off using nail clippers or scissors. The problem with this procedure is that it is not as safe as other methods because of the risk of bleeding and infection.

                   If you want to try it out, you’ll have to make sure you’re using disinfected scissors or nail clippers and apply a good amount of rubbing alcohol to the skin tag you want to remove. Then, after cutting the skin tag from its base, apply some peroxide using a compress to stop the bleeding.

                   Of course, this is not a suitable experience for everybody and fortunately, there are other methods for removing skin tags that involve no pain or bleeding.

Removing skin tags with duct tape :

April 24, 2008

         One of the most widely used methods for removing skin tags is to use duct tape. This method is safe but it requires a good deal of patience on your part.

        If you want to try duct tape on skin tags, you’ll have to cover each one of those skin tags with a small piece of duct tape. Just make sure that the whole skin tag is completely covered.

       After two or three days, check to see if the tape is loosening and if the skin tag is about to fall off. If after that period you see that the skin tag is still hanging on, you’ll have to put on a new piece of duct tape on it.

       As you can see, removing skin tags with duct tape is a little tedious, and that’s why you may prefer using Tea tree oil or another natural herbal extract like Dermisil for skin tags.
