Skin tags, scientifically known as acrochordon, are tiny benign tumors which usually appear on the armpits, groin, neck, and areas of the skin with creases. The eyelids are another part of the body where skin tags can also appear.
Usually, the tags are harmless and cause no pain. They rarely grow bigger over time and usually stay the size of a grain of rice.
Although the few medical treatments for skin tags are quite invasive and even painful, you should know there are many natural remedies which can safely remove them and leave no scar behind.
Here are 7 easy ways to remove skin tags without going to the doctor:
1. Pineapple Juice
Surprisingly, rubbing fresh pineapple juice on your skin tags is a great simple way of removing them. Do this several times per day, but don’t wash the juice off. The same method works for moles or warts as well and is quite effective.
2. Onion Juice
Cut an onion in half and sprinkle some salt on it, then leave it in a glass jar overnight. Squeeze the onion in the morning, then rub it on the tags for up to 12 days to make them disappear.
