A skin tag is a benign growth of the skin. It is harmless in general, but doesn’t look good to the eye. You can medically get rid of a skin tag; however your insurance will probably not pay for the removal. The good thing is that there are certain home remedies which are very effective when it comes to getting rid of a skin tag.


Apple Cider Vinegar

Because of tis antibacterial properties, apple cider vinegar is very effective in getting rid of a skin tag. Cleanse and dry your skin. Soak a cotton ball in some apple cider vinegar. Gently massage it over the skin tag, making sure that it is totally drenched with it. Repeat this process a few times every day until the skin tag falls off by itself.


Fresh Garlic

Garlic is also a natural anti bacteria. Pound together a few garlic cloves until they form a paste. Apply it on the skin tag. Cover the skin tag with a band aid or a plastic wrap. Remove it after 8 hours.


Onion Juice

Simply cut in onion, sprinkle some salt on it and leave it overnight like this. The next day, extract out the juices from the onion slices. Apply the juice on the skin tag for 10 to 15 days. Make sure that you do that regularly. Soon, your skin tag will fall off.
