7. Baking Soda
This is a common item for many home remedies, therefore it is not surprising that it can also be used in the treatment of skin tags. Baking soda is commonly used for baking, but in this scenario it can be used as a home treatment remedy for skin tags. Baking soda makes a very good treatment when mixed with castor oil. Both are easily accessible as they are products that are used in our foods daily and are highly recommended due to their acidic concentrations.
For this treatment, prepare a paste that is thick using the two items, ensuring that you mix them completely. Be sure to use enough baking soda and castor oil so you can have enough for your particular use. In case you cannot obtain castor oil, water can be an alternative, even though the use of water will not make the paste work as effectively, because when the paste dries on the skin it is likely to flake off when you move that area, or when something rubs up against it. Mix the components well then apply the treatment to the skin tag directly. It is not irritating, so the product may also be used on a baby’s skin.
Make sure you cover the affected area with a suitable material such as a bandage and leave it for the whole night. You should also check it frequently to ensure that the bandage is still on the area, because if it is removed you will need to apply another paste to ensure that it works. Clean the skin using some warm water in the morning, and repeat this treatment until you see no more of the skin tag.
Within two weeks, the tag should have completely disappeared, but within the first seven days, you will start noticing some changes. This is because the skin adopts this new product in the body overnight and it changes depending on the product. In this case, the paste changes the skin to a softer skin and with no skin tag on it. Within these days, expect to see a withering of the stalk that attaches the skin tag to your skin, as well as a shrinking in the size of the skin tag. The procedure should also be used when one needs his or her skin to soften up. Even though it needs extra care, it is also very beneficial to your skin.
