Do you know those small fleshy bumps that appear on your body for seemingly no reason and then refuse to go away? Those pesky little things are called as skin tags and they are much more common than you would believe. Fortunately, natural skin tag removal is possible.
Even though it is quite likely that you rushed to the doctor to have these skin tags examined the first time you saw them, any person who has lived with these growths for a period of time knows they are absolutely harmless.
In fact, doctors are quite reluctant to offer any sort of treatment to patient in most cases since these skin tags do not pose any medical concern or risk whatsoever. They are only a cosmetic irritant for the patients.
One other reason for doctors to be not very keen to perform a minor surgical procedure to remove these skin tags is that the insurance companies do not cover any part of the cost involved. The patient might be having body image issues and problems with self esteem, however the insurance companies will label this process as elective and non essential.
So what does the patient do?
Natural Skin Tag Removal
The best way to get rid of skin tags seems to be through the use of a combination of natural oils and extracts that work over a prolonged period of time to try and grid of the problem from its root. Revitol Skin Tag Remover ointment is the one that is most highly recommended by health professionals and through successfully treated patients.
This topical ointment works through self application a couple of times a day and the results start to show in as less as two weeks of application. The biggest advantage is that there are no doctor’s appointments or prescriptions that are required, no invasive surgery or inspections and no scras or marks left behind.
It is also mild enough to be used on any part of the body.
There are some other DIY (do it yourself) methods that people resorted to in earlier times or even now if they are not aware that better methods existed. These methods have a high hit or miss ratio and can sometimes cause a lot more trouble than the initial problem warranted.
For example, there are some people who use dental floss to ‘choke’ the skin tags by cutting off their circulation and then wait till they fall off. In theory this seems okay, especially since the skin tags are attached to the skin by a stalk, however since most of the times the skin tag is in a position where a person cannot access it easily themselves or it may be uncomfortable to have a piece of string tied to, this technique does not end up working.
There is also the question of how hard should this string be tied to strangulate the skin tag because the method will not work if it is too tight or too loose.
Another seemingly easy method is one which involves a sharp pair of scissors that can be used to cut off the skin tags. This is something that should not be done in the case of medium to large sized skin tags or those that are in places which have a high esthetic importance.
You do not want to be in a situation where there is so much of bleeding that it becomes difficult to control and you have to rush to an emergency room or injure any of the delicate areas nearby or leave behind a scar that requires some plastic corrective surgery.
The best method to get rid of skin tags is the one that does not involve any cutting or stitching up and utilizes only those ingredients found in nature.
