Best Ways To Remove Your Skin Tags Effectively And Safely



How To Remove Skin Tags With A Liquid Bandage?



The harmless little skin tag that grows dangling from your skin afflicts just about everyone, young an old, but more on the latter. Plump kids and obese people are most prone to them as they have more skin rubbing against skin in ski folds or get frequently irritated with tight clothing.  


Skin tags pose not even a minor health risk so there’s no medical justification to remove them. But if they prove to be a discomfort growing in some part of the body to interfere with a busy lifestyle or downright unsightly if they end up in some part of your face or head, removing skin tags can become compelling.


Just bear in mind that no health or medical insurance will cover the surgical cost of removing skin tags which is considered a mere cosmetic process so you are left on your own if you want one removed.



Visiting The Doctor Or Removing It At Home

Most skin tags are so small that they get unnoticed and many would shrivel and fall off naturally.  Some that grow on your face may even get accidentally cut off when shaving.


But for some skin tags, they can be quite persistent and if you are bothered by them, you either go to the doctor to have it removed or do it yourself. For some skin tags growing in sensitive body parts, a visit to the doctor will diagnose it first to rule out other health problems that may have caused it. Otherwise, you can get rid of it in the comfort and privacy of your homes.


The most straightforward procedure to get rid of skin tags is simply to cut them off using a sharp pair of surgical scissors or shaving blade. Ligation is also commonly done at home with a dental floss noosed around the tiny skin stalk holding the skin tag. This process cut the blood flow into it so that it withers and eventually fall off or get scrubbed off on your next bath.



Using Liquid Bandage

There are other options for home bound treatment of skin tags. One of them is the use of liquid bandage. It’s a topical treatment of minor skin breaks that is liquid when applied but dries to create a polymer layer tenaciously binding to a treated skin wound to protect it from infection.  


The primary active component is a form of cyanoacrylate which is better known are super glue first formulated to help bound-up open surgery wounds but ended up as a glue. Some brands like Nexcare use isooctane, acrylate terpolymer, and polyphenylmethylsiloxane.  MedTech’s NewSkin uses alcoholic propylene solution with an antiseptic 8-hydroxyquinoline.


So what does liquid bandage do to skin tags? With repeated application, they can dry up the skin tag so that it shrivels and fall off eventually. Depending on the size and tenacity of the skin tag, it can take days of liquid bandage application to get it to fall off naturally.  


Applying liquid bandage is simple as you only need to clean the relevant skin area with soap and water and then get it sterilized with a swab of alcohol until dry.  Spray or brush the liquid bandage over the dried area as instructed on the label and let the liquid from its polymer coating as it dries.  


If the skin tag will be covered by clothing, it’s important that the application completely dries out or its sticky consistency will attract lint.  After a few hours, clean out the liquid bandage with wet soft cloth, soap and water, let it dry and reapply as often as needed until you notice the skin tag has withered.
