Getting Summer Ready: What To Do About Skin Tags
Summer is on it’s way: Hello tank tops and shorts! It’s exciting to be just around the corner from being able to lounge around and soak up some nice rays. But it can be frustrating to be able to wear what you want to when you’re dealing with unsightly (and often embarrassing) skin tags.
Skin tags are generally caused by friction of skin rubbing against itself. Typically they are found in folds of the skin, for example, in the armpits. Though benign and usually not painful, these pesky overgrowths of skin can still be distracting and even get in the way sometimes if they get caught on clothing or jewelry.
Where do skin tags come from?
Heredity has a lot to do with it, but so does obesity, pregnancy, and diabetes. Though with pregnancy the occurrence may slow or completely diminish after the baby is born, you will still be left with skin tags that will need to be removed if they affect you.
How can I get rid of skin tags?
Though some skin tags might ‘dry up’ and fall off on their own, most will not. There are a few options for removing skin tags.
How to safely remove skin tags?
Removing skin tags involves researching the right method for you. Some skin tags are located in very sensitive areas that require a medical professional’s input, such as on the eyelid.
However, you can treat skin tags naturally! Choosing the right non-invasive and safe skin tag treatment is a great way to get rid of them without breaking your budget.
