I began taking 2 TBSP organic ACV, 1 TBSP organic Honey and 8oz. Distilled Water 1X per day and my skin tags are going away. I noticed they started drying up and after only 4 days after taking this drink daily and it was totally unexpected. I also have more energy and my face looks clearer. I am going to continue this 5 days on and 2 days off and see what else happens! I also wanted to say thanks to everyone who contributes to this website it's got a ton of great info. I could get lost on this site for days!
Apple Cider Vinegar
My mom told me about it, I tried it on warts and skin tags, put it on a piece of cotton ball and soak it with ACV and put a band aid on it over night, refresh it in the morning and it will turn it dark. Give it a couple of days and it will disappear. Believe it or not.

Aspirin to remove skin tags
I had a small skin tag underneath my chin. Since I was too squeamish to "rip it off", I crushed an aspirin, mixed it with a few drops of water and put it on the skin tag. Then I put a band aid over it and went to sleep. When I woke up the tag had shriveled up & it fell off when I washed my face. Aspirin's worth a try if you have skin tags-at least you won't have to worry about bleeding or infection.
I had a (not sure what to call it) wasn't exactly a mole or skin tag looked more like a melanoma, come up on my hand a couple of months ago, anyway I started the iodine remedy (couldn't find lugols so using Iodine Tincture, going to keep looking for Lugol's) about 5 days ago and since one of your feedback people said his got infected I decided to every couple of days put Bacitracin Ointment, before I started the Bacitration, I noticed the thing already getting smaller, I am going to continue this experiment and occasionally use bacitration ointment to see if it goes totally away, I will keep you informed of my progress.
I had a skin tag about the size of a corn's kernel. I used thuja but the tag was too big. Thuja only removed 1/3 of the tag and nothing from its root. After a month I tried again thuja and ACV but the big tag had become immune!
In just 13 hours of applying bloodroot (or better black salve) the huge tag had withered completely and started forming into a scab. I put a small quantity on the tag and also on the cotton above. Then put some pressure also with a bondage above. I also had filed the tag with a nail's file and did 0.5mm dermarolling on the tag in order to make the skin more permeable for the black salve to penetrate.
For 13 years I had this big annoying tag and now I removed it only in few days with black salve! I didn't pull the scub. Somehow the immune system removes the tag slowly after the application. Not much scarring and burning as some people in youtube make people afraid of bloodroot. Just scarring on the tag. My hair protected the surrounding tissue also from becoming red. No pain.
Blood Root helped elminated skin tags
I have an Bloodroot Extract that has a dry herb strength of 1.4 other ingredients are 55% grape alchol and filtered water.
I have applied the extract directly to skin tags via a Q-tip and also make a tinture out of this to take internally. I use 1 quart warm water with 15 drops of the extract.
My skin tags have both falling off and shrunk - I have been using externally for about a year.
I also noticed that when I started drinking lemon water, they seemed to shrink even more. They used to "sprout" out, now the remaining ones are much closer to the skin.
I haven't been particularly agressive with the treatment, but it certain does work. With this extract, there really is no topical skin burning, however the tags that have fallen off did get swollen and itchy before they "let go".
As to the internal, I can say when I sip the tinture tea, you do get kind of physical "buzz" from it - it must be working!
You can still buy it at: !! But it comes in 2 parts and you have to mix it yourself. Very helpful also. I don't think I read this source here, but I didn't read every single post either. Just in case: http://www.altcancercream.com/default2.asp
My husband did try it on a rather large skin tag. It was difficult to cover w/bandaid. It got really gross also but one day it turned BLACK!! and eventually fell off. I guess the tag was too large (about 1/2 inch long???) so he had to do it again. Both time it definitely was painful. But it now is just a little bump but always pink. I don't think he wants to try it anymore. He cut off another one that was smaller and that was the easier way to go.
yes i have tried the bloodroot paste on many things. i 1st used it on a weird lump i had on my thigh.my doctor had told me it was just fibers under my skin and not to worry, but i had to get rid of it, it just nagged me to be there. so i did a search and thought bloodroot paste might work. and guess what it did. it also got rid of my skin tags. and 1 time out of 5 it left a scar. i think its because i bandaged it with, because the other times i didn't and it left nothing..
I make a bloodroot salve that is great on skin tags if you catch them when they first pop up. As far as getting rid of older ones, I'm not so sure. It may work, but the friend who is trying it has been at it awhile with no noticable difference.
I use bloodroot paste on moles and skin tags. As everyone says, it does cause moderate pain and redness. I apply it for 3 days with a bandaid over it and then I apply neosporn or bag balm for 3 days with a bandaid and the mole or tag falls off by itself at the root level. The area then heals and within a few weeks there is no sign of damage.
I have / had A LOT of anal skin tags that were left over after I have FINALLY successfully treated my decade old hemorrhoids that would likely have been chronic (if the underlying cause hadn't been identified and treated). I am currently treating these skin tags with castor oil. Before I get into how I'm treating my anal skin tags, I'll give you a story I got them.
- I have attempted to treat my hemorrhoids via multiple natural means unsuccessfully for about 10 years. They only gradually became worse over time despite my attempts to treat them on my own. I have spoken to my GP before from time to time about this issue, but I often feel like he doesn't take my hemorrhoid problems seriously (possibly because I look young and healthy). Whenever I do see him about this issue, he just gives me generic advice about adding more fiber to my diet and prescribing ointments or creams that at best only provides temporary relief.
- It is only when I was in ALOT of pain (where I wasn't even able to sit or lie down without crying in pain) that my GP finally referred me to lady doctor to check out the condition of my hemorrhoids, who then referred me to a gastroenterologist. It was then that I was diagnosed with prolapsed thrombosed hemorrhoids. He recommended a colonoscopy and banding surgery to fix the issue.
- The wait in between waiting to see the doctor, then the gastroenterologist and then finally the scheduled surgery was excruciatingly painful. That period lasted for months. During that time, I had to postpone any plans to work or study. All I could do is stay at home, manage my condition via sitz baths, adjust my diet and toilet habits to minimise any pain from doing a no.2 and continue attempting to treat my hemorrhoids during the wait. I had asked why I had to wait such a long time to get my problem sorted. The reason I was given was that hemorrhoids are not a life threatening disease, therefore are not a priority for treatment. Not to mention that I'm fairly healthy otherwise.
- During the wait, I was introduced a acupuncturist who had successfully treated other people to had hemorrhoids. He was able to identify the underlying cause to my condition and used acupuncture to treat it. This, along with adjusting my diet (to include probiotics, fruits and vegetables) and adjusting my toileting position to avoid straining, eventually made my bowel movements easier and painless. I cancelled my scheduled surgery in favor of doing the acupuncture treatment, since waiting for the surgery seems to be taking so long and the acupuncture treatment seems fairly successful.
After the acupuncture treatment, I thought I still had hemorrhoids, despite my bowel movements being a lot easier and painless. I still had flesh coming out of my anus and I still have difficultly cleaning the anal area or sitting comfortably on it. At first, I tried diluted apple cider vinegar to treat the flesh. They did slowly get smaller but I didn't enjoy this treatment and it didn't do much for me aside to giving me an uncomfortable burning sensation. Later, I tried just simply applying castor oil to the flesh after reading the posts about castor oil for hemorrhoids on earth clinic. The castor oil seems like a gentler and more effective treatment than apple cider vinegar. I was able to get rid of more of the extra fleshy part of the anal area over time but I still couldn't get rid of it completely.
It wasn't until later that I worked out that these weren't hemorrhoids anymore, but skin tags in the anal area. Because I already seem to have some success with castor oil for treatment, I decided to so some internet research about using castor oil to treat anal skin tags. I learnt that castor oil has the ability to drain moisture from skin tags, causing it to shrink and die off when it is in contact with it. The internet also mentioned that mixing it with baking soda makes the castor oil more effective.
I did try castor oil and baking soda together once only to get a stinging sensation in the anal area. So I decided to just use castor oil on its own. However, instead of just simply applying it to the anal skin tags, what I decided do recently is get some toilet paper, saturate one side with the castor oil and wrap it around the skin tags to ensure that it is constantly in contact with the castor oil all day and night (and changing the toilet paper and castor oil 3 times per day).
- I've been doing the castor oil with toilet paper treatment for about 10 days now. My skin tags were huge and uncomfortable at the start of those 10 days. Now they're a lot smaller and barely noticeable. I still have some skin tags left over, but castor oil as a treatment for anal skin tag removal has been very successful so far. I'll keep going with this for now and hopefully they will disappear.

Rub skin tags with tiny amount coconut oil twice a day. It works slowly but it does get rid of them.
I have had this large hanging skin tag in the front of my shoulder for at least a decade and I tried removing it several times in the past years with iodine, apple cider vinegar and even 35% hydrogen peroxide and a tooth floss tied around it. I tried all the remedies from here and I could not get it to work.
Last week I got so sick of it I tied floss around it - soaked it in iodine and apple cider vinegar alternating the two and it just got irritated and got bigger - DAAAMN. Clearly the floss was not cutting off the blood circulation to the tag (and I knew that since I had tried it before....).
BUT THEN I took REGULAR COTTON STRING (like the kind you sew clothes with) and tied that underneath the floss closest to the root of the tag and THAT was the thing that changed everything.
I tied it tight and within 12 hours the tag had started to turn black.
In order to speed up the process. I also soaked a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and taped it on the skin tag for several hours each day and TODAY, THREE DAYS AFTER TYING THE STRING THE SKIN TAG FELL OFF.
I AM SO HAPPY IT IS GONE OMG! . So USE REGULAR COTTON STRING TO CUT OFF THE BLOOD SUPPLY AND SOAK THE TAG IN APPLE CIDER VINEGAR SEVERAL TIMES A DAY AND SAY BYE BYE TO BIG SKIN TAGS. My skin did get red from the apple cider vinegar but it will heal but you definitely can use vaseline to protect the base of the skin if you have irritated skin.
THANK YOU EARTH CLINIC FOR PROVIDING THIS COMMUNITY!!
Dry ice is effective for removal of skin tags. When applied, I crack the larger piece of dry ice to make a pointed piece that I can hold in a towel. I touch the dry ice to the skin tag until it becomes white and frozen - about 3-5 seconds. The skin tags usually fall off within the week.
This technique has risks for freezer burn of the surrounding skin.
Under the thread skin tag theory I found sugar may be the cause. I thought this was important so I'm posting here as well.
It's Dec 29 and I just noticed some new skin tags on my neck. One in particular is large and itchy; it wasn't there last month. The association between sugar and skin tags seems to be true for my body type. During this holiday season, I've been drinking ginger beer which has a lot of sugar.
