Skin tags are the small bump or growths on your body that seem to come from nowhere and do nothing! In fact a lack of symptoms is one of their hallmarks and something that signifies the harmless nature of these growths on your body. Most commonly the color of these skin tags is similar to the skin of the person but that is not always the case. Sometimes the skin tags can be darker in appearance or become darker over a period of time. The presence of a red skin tags indicates that they are inflamed.
A red skin tag is something that has to be looked at. The most common reason for a skin tag to get inflamed is because it is being subjected to trauma. The constant pulling, getting stuck in clothing, getting hurt by zippers or just being squashed by the weight of your body can cause injury to the skin tags.
Options for Removing Red Skin Tags
While doctors recommend that skin tags can be left alone if they are not bothering you cosmetically, they do advise getting rid of skin tags that get inflamed and injured constantly. The method that you use to get rid of the skin tags is up to you, although the clear favorite choice of affected people seems to be the use of natural oils.
It is not hard to understand the reasons. This is an easy and affordable option that does not require any doctor’s visits or prescriptions. It is something that has been around for years and is recommended by a large number of health professionals.
There are a number of brands all promising to do the same thing, however not all of them live up to the promises. The space of over the counter products is not as tightly regulated as prescription medications and so it is better to stick to known brands.
Revitol Skin Tag Remover is the brand of choice for most people. Users have reported a positive experience free of any adverse effects or side effects. It is also mild enough to be used on any part of the body.
Getting rid of skin tags by any other method has some compromise or the other. A minor surgery to get rid of these growths is prohibitively expensive and can turn into a recurring cost since the chance of these skin tags returning is quite high. Other DIY methods are not advocated because while they may work for some, the risk of damaging your skin and causing long lasting damage is very real.
