Aspirin is a medical drug that is used for pain reduction in all the body parts. Aspirin is a common feature for most people in their medicine cabinet. This is because of its healing power and it can also be used in relieving pain in the body without having many side effects. It was also discovered that aspirins can be used to prepare a good home treatment for skin tags. Many practitioners of alternative health methods believe that it has a greater effect than common treatments for skin tags, such as the other natural products we’ve mentioned. Aspirin contains an active component called salicylic acid; this product was originally obtained from the willow tree’s bark and has been known to be a potent painkiller with anti-inflammatory properties that has been used for more than two thousand years.
Before aspirin was refined into its end product that is being used today, the people could use the product from the tree to cure themselves within seconds. Salicylic acid was also used to heal scars and cure skin tags in which it could only take a few days as compared to the other natural homemade products.
For optimum benefits from aspirin in treating bothersome skin tags, the simple procedure is to drop an aspirin in a quarter cup water, and wait for the aspirin to dissolve. Dip a swab of cotton in this mixture, apply over the skin tag and use a band-aid to cover the area for some time.
You need to be careful that none of the solution is removed when you apply the band-aid. Failure to take this precaution will lead to the treatment being ineffective, hence requiring one to re-do the procedure. Otherwise, if you correctly apply the mixture on your skin, it will seep into your skin, and gradually the skin tag will begin to recede.
Remember, this treatment will work only if you use actual aspirin. This requires one to be extra careful when choosing the product in order to ensure it is the correct product and its expiration date has not expired. Failure to take these precautions may lead to the worsening of the condition of the skin.
Don’t substitute it with other drugs like acetaminophen or ibuprofen as their contents are more than the required amount and will damage you skin. You should keep the remaining products out of reach for the children. If you wish to re use it, you should store it in a cool dry place with a lead to close it.
