					Removing Moles, Warts, and Skin Tags

Moles and warts are quite common and it’s easy to remove them. But what
if you have skin tags? Can you also remove them?

Skin tags create cosmetic problems and insurance companies don’t cover
such procedure. You need to spend money right from your pockets if you
want to remove these unsightly lesions. Since not all people have the
capacity to spend huge money in removing the skin tags, moles, or warts,
here are some effective home methods of getting rid of them.

In the case of skin tags, some say that you can just cut or scrape them
off. However, if this is done improperly, it can lead to infection. Make
sure that you know what you’re doing and you need to sterilize the nail
clippers or scissors first. Soak the materials in sanitizer or place them
over fire. Before cutting the skin tags, prepare some bandage and cotton
just in case there is bleeding.

Freezing is another method of removing skin tags, as well as warts and
moles. Before, this procedure was exclusively performed by doctors but
you can already find ‘freezing’ products in the market. It is already
provided with instructions that you need to follow carefully. However,
you can only use this option if you have small tags. The freezing
products are available in kits and the kits are less costly as compared
to the services given by doctors.

Another method is to cut the blood supply of the skin tags and other skin
lesions. You can do this by tying a tight knot at the skin tag’s base.
The string should be tied tightly. You can have someone tie the knot for
you to ensure the tightness. Leave the string on for a couple of days.
Since the blood supply is cut off, the skin tag will eventually fall off
after a few days.

These are effective home methods for removing skin tags and even warts or
moles. However, you need to be sure that the skin lesions are not
malignant. If the skin tags, moles, and warts changed in color and size
dramatically, schedule an appointment with your doctor. This is the very
first sign that indicates malignant skin lesions. If anything goes wrong
with the above home methods, don’t hesitate to consult a doctor as well.

Safety is very important and if you have second thoughts in carrying out
the home methods, it would be best not to do it anymore and instead,
consult a doctor. Aside from the home methods mentioned, there are still
other home remedies that you can try like applying certain herbs on the
affected area. If after all these home methods the skin tags, moles, and
warts are not removed, a visit to the doctor is advised.

Although it can cost you some money, it would help to know that you’re in
safe hands. The doctors can guarantee you that the moles, warts, and skin
tags will be removed after the procedure. Most of the procedures can be
done in a couple of hours and you don’t need to stay overnight at the
clinic or hospital.
Removing moles, warts, and skin tags is very easy. In most cases, the
skin lesions are harmless and can heal over time. But since the lesions
cause cosmetic problems, you need to remove them immediately.
