A few weeks back, after a request, we featured a post: How To Get Rid Of Moles With Apple Cider Vinegar. I wasn’t sure how this would be received on K.W.N as it is kind of off-topic, but there was a huge interest in the post and many folks asked if you could use the same/similar procedure to remove skin tags… I have done some research and the answer is yes! The procedure is slightly different (explained below), but you can quickly and painlessly remove skin tags with apple cider vinegar. During my research I was quite shocked to see many people are paying $500+ to have a skin tag removed! You can do it for free and without a medical procedure!
Firstly, as I said with the mole post – you need to be certain that all you have is a benign skin tag, you don’t want to be doing this if you are not certain. If in doubt swing by your doctors and get confirmation.
How To Remove the Skin Tags
(We have since done a new post which shows how to remove skin tags with lemon juice. The new method seems a bit easier, but the choice is yours!)
You will need some band-aids, apple cider vinegar and some cotton wool/cotton balls (or tissue). Take some cotton wool/cotton balls (enough to cover the skin tag), dip it in some ACV until it is soaked through. Give it a little squeeze, so it’s not dripping ACV everywhere, then place it over the skin tag and use a band-aid to hold it in place.
You can repeat this daily, or twice daily. The skin tag will turn black and fall off within 3 to 5 days and any slight blemish left by the skin tag should disappear within a week or so. Job done!
