The soft skin growths that can appear quickly in inconvenient places are called skin tags. Skin tags often appear around the eyes, on the neck, in the armpits, around the breasts, and in the groin area.
People should know that this is not a serious health concern. On the other hand, if a person has no knowledge of them, they can be obnoxious, embarrassing, and scary.
They are related to obesity. But, obesity is not the only reason. Sometimes tight, rubbing, clothes can also cause skin tags to grow. Additionally, pregnant women will also see skin tag formations.
They can be removed, but the most common methods include freezing and cutting skin tags off. A dermatologist normally handles these methods of removal, but, there is a simpler way to remove skin tags at home. You should rub apple cider vinegar on the skin tag 2 to 3 times a day in a period of a week, and the skin tag will fall off.
Additionally, you can soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar. Hold it in place over the skin tag with a bandage. If you use this method, it is important to check for skin irritation.
