5. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is mostly used as a food additive to make the food taste better. Apple cider vinegar is high in acidic content, this is one of the reasons why it is used for removal of skin tags. Just like lemon and pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar will aid in naturally getting rid of skin tags. The only difference is that apple cider vinegar is not as fast-acting as pineapple and lemon juices. This is due to the reason that it has a lower acidic content than lemon and pineapple juice. It is, however, the best when using it on a baby as it will not react with the baby’s skin, and if it gets to an opening in the skin, it will not hurt like lemon juice or pineapple juice.
The procedure for doing it is just the same as the others. You simply soak a cotton swab in apple cider vinegar and apply it on the skin tag two times daily. Within a month, the skin tag should have gone away. Medical experts advise the users that all treatments that contain acid should not be used near the eyes. If the skin tag is near the eyes, then the best thing to do is to seek medical attention so as to avoid blindness or eye complications. It is also advisable to wear a protective glove on your hand before you apply the products on your skin, and you should also rinse your skin afterwards.
You may opt to use apple cider vinegar after you noticed that using lemon and pineapple juice in the past has not been as effective in the removal of the skin tag as you hoped, or if your skin is sensitive to the other juices. This is because lemon and pineapple juices are naturally more acidic. Remedies that have a high acid content should not be used on people with sensitive skin.
Before you carry out any home remedy for skin tags, you should first of all test how your skin responds to the treatment by applying a small quantity on a small area of your skin. You can also seek medical advice from the expertise that will run tests on your skin first before they resort to giving you advice on the best product to use on your skin. However, if your skin is not sensitive to pineapple juice, aloe vera or lemon juice, to heal faster and reduce wasting time on the treatment, you should consider using them first.
