It is not a secret that skin tags, also known as acrochordon are not dangerous and are absolutely painless. The only reason why people remove them is because they do not like how these blemishes look like. To be honest, this was exact same reason why I got rid of skin tags on my neck. If you are one of those individuals suffering from these blemishes, this article will be of use for you. Here I will discuss natural and surgical removals options and compare its advantages and disadvantages.
Surgery has several serious advantages over organic methods. First of all, it is very fast. You know, surgeon can just take a scalpel and cut your blemish in a few seconds. Then he will apply several stitches in case your skin tag was big and you are done. However, you can have scars after surgery, especially when your skin tags are bigger than average. Moreover, the price of surgery is too high and it can cost you a fortune to remove your blemishes especially when you have many of them.
During my research process I stumbled upon one interesting website that provides information on skin tags and natural skin tag removal options. I would like to share some of them with you in this article.
A mix of castor oil and baking soda has been successfully used by hundreds of people. In fact, castor oil has been already used for hundreds of years and is known as one of the best skin care ingredients. To remove the blemish, you will need to mix baking soda and the oil in appropriate proportions and then rub the blend in your blemish. This procedure should be done several times every day, the amount of procedures depends on the size and location of your skin tag.
If done properly, your blemish will dissolve in several weeks and this is the biggest disadvantage of natural methods. They require too much time. Usually it will take you 2-4 weeks to get rid of the tag, however, natural ingredients are very cheap and you will not need to spend hundreds of dollars buying them.
So what do you choose? Natural remedies or surgical treatment? Each method has advantages and disadvantages and sometimes it is very difficult to decide which option to choose. Anyway, it is time to make up your mind and choose the best method for you. Hope this article will help you, to find more information on the problem, check out the website above and some of references I used.
