How To Shrink A Wart
Although many of us find skin tags to be frustrating, they really are something that does not cause any problems, outside of some possible irritation and the cosmetic effect. As a matter of fact, they are classified as being the tumor but a benign tumor and it is extremely rare for skin tags to be cancerous at all. For those of us that suffer with them on a regular basis, however, we realize exactly how frustrating having skin tags can be. Here are some things for you to keep in mind, as well as a natural way to be able to remove the problem at home.
First of all, the easiest way for you to be able to remove skin tags is simply by snipping them off of your body. That being said, and we will discuss a little bit more later, you need to keep in mind where the skin tag is located. For example, it is not uncommon for people to have genital skin tags and very few of us would want to snip this area of our body with a pair of clippers. The same is also true if we have skin tags on our eyelids. This is a very sensitive area of our body and you should never use scissors or clippers in order to remove tags that are near the eye.
Now that we have that out of the way, here is how simple it is for you to remove skin tags by snipping them off. The first thing that you should do is to make sure that whenever you are using is sterile. You can either dip it in alcohol or you can hold it in a flame for a few seconds in order to kill any germs that may be present. You may also want to sterilize the area of your body before you remove the tag.
Although it is a rather painless procedure, if you are especially susceptible to pain, you might want to consider holding an ice cube on the area for a couple of minutes. This will numb it enough that you should not feel it at all. Make sure that you keep some Kleenex or cotton swabs nearby in order to catch any blood that may happen to come out whenever the procedure is done. In just a few seconds, the tag will be gone.
