Home Remedies for Skin Tags: The Safe and Effective Treatment that Worked for Me

From tea tree oil, ginger, nail polish to baking soda and castor oil, the number of suggestions touted as effective home remedies for skin tags is staggering. On top of these suggestions there are also a number of more conventional and, often, costly treatment methods listed for removing skin tags. This can lead to confusion and make you wonder where to even start. While I can’t vouch for every one of these treatment options, I can suggest a natural treatment method that worked for me.

Firstly, let me tell you about the issue I had with these pesky skin abnormalities. A few months ago I noticed a number of unsightly bumps on my neck. This caused me to panic and worry that it was something more serious. Fortunately, I discovered these skin blemishes are benign and harmless tumours called skin tags.

While my health concerns were appeased, the appearance of these unsightly skin anomalies was still causing me some distress and embarrassment. They were located to the front left hand side of my neck and were clearly visible to someone close by. The thing that made it worse though was that I a date coming up. Who would want to be seen with someone with these things hanging from their neck? He’d probably think there was something wrong with me or that I was unhygienic and didn’t take care of myself.

Fortunately, I did have a scarf available to cover them up in public, which might have looked strange to onlookers, but it was better than people seeing the disgusting sight that lay beneath. However, the scarf wouldn’t be an option for my date so I wanted to find a method of getting rid of skin tags and pronto.

I started looking for solutions, starting with the more conventional medical options first. There were a number of different treatment methods suggested, such as cryosurgery, excision, surgical ligation and cauterization. The problem was skin tags are classed as a cosmetic issue and my insurance wouldn’t cover one of these methods. With limited funds available at the time, the anxiety and low mood I’d been feeling became worse as I realised using one of these medical methods as a skin tag removal option was out of the equation for now.

I started checking out the various home remedies and came across a variety of different suggestions. Firstly, a number of people mentioned over the counter products for achieving skin tag removal at home. These, while not as expensive as the medical treatments, were still costly and some of the ones suggested were made for warts and moles. They might work, but I wasn’t going to spend my money unless I was sure. The natural remedies for skin tags looked more appealing. However there were a number that seemed to have little evidence backing their effectiveness. The ones that looked effective such as apple cider vinegar and duct tape would take several weeks to deal with the issue and that time frame was out of the question. I wanted a quicker solution for getting rid of skin tags.

I tried one of the suggestions that involved cutting the skin tags off with a pair of nail clippers. I only tried it on one of the tags and it was painful. The pain and sight of blood put me off trying it on the rest. Furthermore, I wasn’t sure it was safe and whether there was a risk of scaring. I didn’t want to exchange one series of skin deformities for a series of others.

I continued searching and eventually found a product called “Moles, Warts & Skin Tags Removal”.

It claimed to be a short report about effective home remedies for moles, warts and skin tags. The author, Charles Davidson, describes himself as an alternative medicine practitioner, an expert in natural remedies and a skin care specialist. I found this description a bit too self-glorifying, but his personal story certainly built rapport with me.

He talks about how he suffered from moles, warts and skin tags when he was younger. Unfortunately, he had them on his face. While the ones on my neck were visible, at least I had the option to hide them, even if the rubbing of the scarf was a pain. It must have been more traumatic for him and others who either have or are suffering with these types of skin lesions on their face or eyelids. The kids at his school certainly weren’t kind, constantly referring to him as “the mask”. They also avoided him out of fear that he’d infect them with something.

This, of course, led him to try numerous solutions for getting rid of skin tags, moles and warts. This saw both him and his parents spending lots of money on expensive over the counter treatments and even more expensive surgical options. The issue was, while some of these treatments were effective, these issues would come back time and again.

He claims he eventually discovered natural remedies for his warts, moles and skin tags that worked within three days. He was able to cure his skin conditions without any side effects such as scaring and they haven’t reoccurred since.

Certainly this seemed too good to be true and I nearly didn’t purchase the product. The main reason I did go ahead and buy it though, was due to the numerous before and after pictures his customers had sent in of their warts, moles and skin tags before and after using his treatment methods. Sure there was some scepticism that they were faked, but the low cost suggested I might as well give it a go.

The report came in the form of a PDF document and I was able to download it immediately after the purchase. It’s 106 pages and has sections dealing with warts, moles, skin tags and genital warts. Each section goes over what each of these skin anomalies are, the different types, the conventional treatments available and finally the authors natural remedy for the condition been discussed.

The method he presents for removing skin tags involves a number of inexpensive household items that you can pick up at a local store. Once I had the items, I begun following his natural remedy. To my surprise, after around five days my skin tags had vanished. Even better, there was no scarring and no sign they’d ever been there to begin with. While his claim of it working in three days was incorrect for me, the treatment did eventually work.

I felt like I’d become whole again. My self-confidence was back and I wasn’t overly worried about anyone thinking less of me. I also managed to go on my date blemish free and, while it didn’t go as great as I had hoped, I certainly had a good time and wasn’t sat worrying about my date staring at my neck and wondering what in the world was wrong with me.

I have to make it clear that I’ve only read the sections related to skin tags and can’t speak of whether the information on and remedies for warts, moles and genital warts is effective. Certainly it’s something I’d check out if I or someone I knew was suffering from one of these conditions, but if you’re reading this  and are suffering from one of these, I’m sorry I can’t help provide more information.

The product cost $37 and while I can’t guarantee it’ll work for your skin tags, I certainly wanted to make others in similar predicaments aware of the product and how it had worked for me. The author does offer a 60 day money back guarantee, so if you do decide to purchase the guide, you can always claim your money back if it doesn’t work out for you. It’s also worth mentioning that it comes with seven or so bonus books about the benefits of certain food and dieting. What they have to do with skin related issues, I don’t know, but I thought I’d let you know anyway.

Lastly, whatever you decide to buy his guide, seek one of the medical options or use one of the various home remedies for skin tags I wish you luck and hope you’re able to find a remedy that works for you.
