When to Opt for Skin Tag Removal
If you have unusual growths on your skin, you may have concerns about your health and your appearance. Skin tags are a common growth that occurs on various parts of the body with growths that are often on small stalks. You might have one or more of these located on these areas of your body:
• Under the breasts
• In the folds of the groin
These are the areas of the body where the skin tends to rub against something such as another body part or fabric. In addition to hindering aesthetic, skin tags can become irritated from constant rubbing or exposure to moisture. To avoid discomfort from a skin tag, you might place an adhesive bandage over it. Having a skin tag on an eyelid is especially difficult because it can obscure your vision and make blinking difficult. Physicians believe that skin tags occur due to skin irritation, but after you have one or more of these, the problem will get worse, and you must do something about these growths.
Avoid Irritating the Skin Tags
There are some things that you can do to avoid irritating the skin tags, including:
• Keep clothing or jewelry away from the growths
• Keep your skin folds dry to avoid any irritation
• Maintain your weight to avoid having additional flabby skin folds
• Consume fewer calories and avoid high-fat foods
If you have skin tags, then keep the area around the growth as dry as possible to prevent friction.
Professional Skin Tag Removal
An application of apple cider vinegar may help the skin tag’s stalk become dry and nonfunctional, but do not use this remedy on the eyes or sensitive body areas. The best way to get rid of a skin tag is by visiting a dermatologist who knows how to remove the item safely without leaving a scar or causing an infection. A dermatologist understands how to remove the skin tags that are located in delicate areas such as the eyelids or groin.
