If you’ve ever had a skin tag, then you know how annoying it can be. They don’t hurt, and they aren’t a symptom of any larger problem. They’re just ugly, and that’s often enough to bug a person far more than any kind of pain or illness. So naturally, people often want to remove skin tags.
Which begs the question of how to get rid of skin tags quickly and easily. You could always go to a doctor and ask them to remove it, but for such a minor cosmetic act, there’s not really a need. In point of fact, the doctor will probably tell you to do it yourself. But if you can talk to them, they’ll often give you instructions for how to get rid of skin tags.
All it really requires is a set of tweezers and a pen knife. Pull the skin tag taught, and then cut it at the base. This might cause a momentary sting, and might also cause some bleeding. But the pain is over in an instant, and the blood isn’t enough to cause any actual problems.
Unfortunately, this isn’t always a viable solution. Sometimes, you need another person to do it for you, because you can’t reach the skin tag. In that case, there are a number of oils and creams that are on the market, and these tend to work fairly well. They do work slowly, however, sometimes taking as long as a month or more.
Ultimately, though, removing skin tags isn’t a difficult process. If you have a good friend or a loved one, you can often ask them to remove the ones you can’t reach. The only ones you should ever need a doctor for are skin tags that are close to your eye. And then, it’s just so you have someone else you can blame if there’s a slip up and you lose an eye in the process!…Read More
