Skin tags are very common and harmless skin growths that form due to friction and rubbing. A person can have anywhere from one to over hundred skin tags on their body. These little flaps of skin are highly annoying to deal with because they look a lot more dangerous and harmful than they actually are. Luckily, there’s a simple solution to removing them, and you do not even need to make a trip to the doctor.
It turns out that using Apple Cider Vinegar will help remove skin tags.
To do this, you first soak a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar. Then, you rub it against the skin tag two to three times a day. If you repeat this process every day, the skin tag will eventually change color and fall off. It takes roughly a week for this process to happen (occasionally more) so a bit of patience is required.
According to Simple Household Tips, “Make sure to squeeze the cotton ball while you massage the skin tag so that the skin tag is saturated with the vinegar. This can be done three times a day until the skin tag is gone. Keep in mind that apple cider vinegar is acidic and it can cause some mild itching and stinging for a few minutes when you do this treatment. To minimize these effects dilute the vinegar with some water before doing the treatment.”
