Skin tags are common soft skin growths that can appear quickly in inconvenient places. Specifically, they often form around the eyes, on the neck, in the armpits, around the breasts, and in the groin area.
Most people will grow at least one skin tag in their lives. They are not a serious health concern, but can be obnoxious, embarrassing, and even scary if a person has no knowledge of them.
Skin tags are associated with obesity, but that isn’t the only reason they form. Sometimes tight, rubbing clothes can also cause skin tags to grow. Women who are pregnant will also see skin tag formations.
Common methods of removal include freezing and cutting skin tags off. A dermatologist normally handles these methods of removal. However, there is a simpler way to remove skin tags at home. All you have to do is rub apple cider vinegar on the skin tag 2 to 3 times a day for a week, and the skin tag will fall off.
You can also soak a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar and hold it in place over the skin tag with a bandage. However, it is important to check for skin irritation if you use this method.
