Skin Tags Cure
Many people ask 'what
are skin tags?' Skin tags are benign growths of excess
skin, many people would rather have them removed through some
effective skin tags cure because skin tags make the skin look
ugly and rough. That of course is not the sole reason for
people to seek skin tags cure. Skin tags, after all, get irritated
and cause discomfort, sometimes even pain, when rubbed by
clothing or snagged by jewelry items. Removing
skin tags improves the look of the skin and prevents the
risk of possible infections and irritation. So what exactly
is a good skin tags cure? Ideally, it is something that works
well and costs less i.e. that is effective as well as affordable.
But the choice of treatment
for skin tags also depends on individual preference. Following
are some of the commonly used types of skin tags cure.
This is a method used by medical doctors but can also be
used at home without costing anything. What you do is tie
up the tags with a thread or dental floss around their base
(the stalk or stem). This will cut off the blood supply to
the cells of the skin tags, causing the tags to shrink and
die. The tags can then be snipped off with sterilized scissors
or nail clippers. If doing at home, care needs to be exercised
in cleaning the tools and cutting off the tags. Due to its
invasive nature, some people may not like to apply ligation
as skin tags cure.
Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery, is another type of
surgical skin tags cure, performed in the physician’s
clinic. It works by freezing the skin tags using an extremely
cold substance (cryogen) that kills the tags and makes them
fall off. The cold substance used is mostly liquid nitrogen.
Cryosurgery has the advantage that, when performed well carefully,
it does not injure any surrounding cells except those of the
skin tags. Mostly, it is done without local anesthesia, except
for large skin tags and for people who are not tolerant even
to slight pain. The latter again makes it not a good choice
for people who are critical of invasive methods of treatment.
A number of herbal
skin tag treatment options including oils, creams, and
liquid solutions are now used popularly as skin tags cure.
Some of the more popular of these include SkinSave, DermaTend,
and Dermisil. These medicines are available at health stores
and are generally not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding
women. Before using them, it is better to consult a doctor.
Home remedies are another type of popular skin tags cure.
These remedies usually take longer to remove the skin tags
but they cost less and are free of the risks associated with
surgical techniques. Some of the more common remedies used
at home as skin tags cure include apple cider vinegar, tea
tree oil, and castor oil.
