Skin tags can affect any individual. Although these growths normally go away by themselves, you can have it removed with surgery. They are not really harmful, but they can be unpleasant to look at especially if they appear on parts of the skin that are exposed. There is one of the most effective procedures used to remove skin tags which is safe and can be done at home. If you want to do self treatment however, you have to inform your doctor or dermatologist so he can give you advice on how to do it properly.
What you need is a dental floss. Buy a dental floss or you can use an old one in your medicine cabinet. Any brand will do and any type whether it is non-wax or wax version. Locate your skin tag and tie a small amount on the base of the skin tag. Make sure to tie it tightly to make sure that your home treatment is effective. This is one of the remedies that work best for the home removal of skin tags and has been proven effective so there is no need to worry. Leave the floss tied on the skin tag for 5 days to a week. If it should happen that the floss falls off, tie a new one and start counting again. In a few days, the tag will naturally fall off because floss will restrict the blood flow on the skin tag. After the tag falls off, clean it with hydrogen peroxide, cover it, and have your dermatologist check it.
