What are skin tags?

Introduction and background

A skin tag is a benign (non-cancerous) skin growth that can occur on the body or face. They can be wrinkled, skin-colored or just slightly darker than skin color, and vary in size and can grow as large as a big grape.

Skin tags can occur almost anywhere there is skin but most commonly grow on the neck, underarms, eyelids, groin, upper chest, and under the breasts (especially where underwire bras rub directly beneath  the breasts). Skin tags are typically thought to occur in characteristic locations where skin rubs against skin or clothing.

Treatment for Skin Tags

Some people report that their skin tags disappear if they take chromium picolinate (200 mcg twice a day). This trace element may have positive impact on insulin resistance, one of the causes of skin tags. Chromium is a mineral and typically must be taken for 3 months to see the results.

Since chromium may impact blood glucose (sugar) and insulin sensitivity, talk with your doctor before taking this, or any other, supplement — especially if you are on insulin or anti-diabetic drugs.  Skin tags do not need treatment but if they become sore from rubbing against clothing or jewelry, or if you find them unsightly, they can be removed surgically.

There are several methods of removing skin tags:

  • Cryosurgery (freezing) (see image on right);
  • Tying off the stem to cut off the blood supply;
  • Excision with scissors or a scalpel; and
  • Burning with an electric needle

All of these methods of treatment are considered minor surgery, typically done in a doctor’s office. Since removal of skin tags is considered to be cosmetic, most health care systems and medical insurance plans will not cover it. Therefore, it is always a good and safe choice to go for something that is non-surgical, non-invasive, safe, can be tried at home with convenience and is cheap and affordable as well. Luckily, there are quite a few good anti-skin tag herbal treatments that are considered all natural and organic in nature.

Babies are rarely born with skin tags, but children and toddlers sometimes develop skin tags in the underarm and neck areas. There is also wide belief that there is a genetic component involved in who will get skin tags, but this may be related to genes that contribute to insulin resistance rather than skin tags themselves.


Conclusion

While skin tags are not lethal or fatal, they could be a big headache psychologically and physically especially because of the detrimental effect they add to the human beauty and appearance. While there are many medical, allopathic, and surgical options are available, first option and priority should be gives to methods which are safe and natural such as the use of herbal or all-natural skin tag removal kits or systems.
