Removing Skin Tags
Removing Skin Tags
Skin tags are small, benign outgrowths that predominantly develop in areas, in which, the skin forms creases. They are common in fat people because fat people have more creases.
The body parts, on which, skin tags are likely to develop include: neck, armpit, groin, eyelids, mouth, nasal cavity, under the arms, umbilicus, genitalia, thighs, genitalia and under the breasts.
In scientific nomenclature, skin tags are called acrochorda. The singular for acrochorda is acrochordon. There are other labels for skin tags. The other labels include: fibroepithelial polyps, cutaneous papilloma, soft fibromas and skin tabs.
Men and women are affected by acrochorda; however, they are more common in women than in men. Many researches point to the female hormone, estrogen as being the factor that is responsible for this difference.
Estrogen is not the only factor that accounts for the difference in the rate of occurrence of soft fibromas between men and women. About 10% of women between the ages of 14 to 45 suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome).
PCOS is an endocrine disorder that leads to the overproduction of androgenic hormones. Androgenic hormones are masculine hormones such as testosterone, dihydrotestoterone and androstenedione.
Small quantities of androgenic hormones are perfectly normal in healthy women. Problems only arise when these hormones become excessive. In women, the problems caused by excessive androgenic hormones include menstruation, amenorrhea, obesity, type 2 diabetes, hirsutism and acne.
Home Remedies for
Home Remedies for Skin Tags
You can treat soft fibromas with the help of ordinary household duct tape. Firmly apply the duct tape around the soft fibroma. Check the duct tape for tautness frequently. If the duct tape loosens, re-tighten it.
This technique works by cutting off the blood supply to the acrochorda. Hence, it is absolutely imperative that the duct tape remains firmly attached at all times; until, the tumor comes off. This technique is also used for the removal of moles.
You can also treat soft fibromas with the help of vitamin E oil.
Split a vitamin E capsule and pour its content on your fibroepithelial polyp. Firmly surround it with a band aid. You should preferably use a cloth type band aid because it holds the skin tighter.
Check the tautness of the band aid frequently. If the band aid becomes loose, re-tighten it. Every day, remove the old band aid. Clean the affected area and re-apply some vitamin E. Firmly re-attach the band aid. After a few days or weeks, the acrochordon will wither and fall off.
This method works by starving the soft fibroma of blood supply. The vitamin E serves to nourish the skin and accelerate recovery after the acrochordon falls off.
You can treat your soft fibroma with tea tree oil.
You can purchase tea tree oil from your local grocery or drugstore. You’ll also need a q-tip or a cotton bud. Soak the cotton bud in the tea tree oil and use it to dab on the acrochordon. Do this at least thrice, daily.
Pure tea tree oil may sting and burn. If the stinging is unbearable, dilute the tea tree oil in some water. A 1:1 dilution ratio is adequate.
After several days or weeks of applying the tea tree oil on the acrochordon, it will gradually start to loose colour and darken. Before long, the tumor will wither and fall off.
