But before we go into any detail of the why's and wherefore's, please note that we strongly recommend, in fact we insist, that you consult your medical practitioner and confirm that these are in fact harmless skin tags, and that he or she would be happy for you to use the natural remedies that we are listing below.

Skin Tags under the arms

What are Skin Tags.

  • Skin Tags are benign and look like small pieces of hanging skin.

  • They can range from 2mm even up to 5 cm.

  • They seldom require treatment although they can burst under pressure.

  • They are painless, but can cause some discomfort.

  • And some people can find them aesthetically displeasing.

What is the Cause of Skin Tags?

You will have an increased chance of developing Skin Tags:

  • If Mom or Dad had them, this is one of the things that you can blame your parents for.

  • If you are a diabetic.

  • If you are overweight, because there are more folds and creases of skin to rub against each other.

  • If you are pregnant -   the hormonal changes in your body could cause these skin tags to develop.

Home Remedies for Skin Tags using Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil for removal of Skin Tags
  • Soak a piece of cotton wool in some Tea Tree Oil which has been diluted with equal amounts of water or vegetable.

  • Tea tree oil can cause an allergic reaction in some people, discontinue immediately if this should happen.

  • Apply directly onto the skin tag, after ensuring that the skin is clean and dry.
  • If time allows, then leave the piece of cotton wool on for about 10 minutes.

  • Repeat at least twice a day.

  • Tea Tree Oil has antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, but the reason why it actually works for removing skin tags is not clearly understood and there are no studies to either approve or disapprove this method of skin tag removal.

  • The key however, is patience, it will not happen overnight and should be applied for at least a month.
  • Always treat your skin with love and respect, it can catch up on you in later life.
