I have to tell you I am quite shocked. I've been doing 30 mg worked up to 110 mg a day of borax past few months. I started it for my 2 knee arthritis which it has helped I still have pain but it's not the light me up screaming pain when I move it the wrong way. It's also helping my Candida overgrowth which I'm overjoyed about. But what really sets borax apart for me is I haven't read this from anybody yet.… Are you ready for this? Skin tag Yep that's right. I never get skin tags but about 10 years ago I got a skin tag in a private area. And it was a good quarter inch long. It's been there like I said for about 10 years. Well two months into doing the Borax and guess what the skin tag is almost all gone from taking borax orally! I am so happy this stuff is amazing I'm doing 110 mg and I am a woman, but this is a treatment dose, sure I will end up with the maintenance dose once everything feels better.
I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatique and other co issues. Eliminating my Candida overgrowth that I've been fighting for 20 years is just a blessing. This stuff is amazing I started my own Facebook group to give people support we all talk about how great it's been using borax thank you for all you do we use a lot of your videos to encourage people. I just haven't found anybody talking about borax and skin tags again this was orally, I did not apply it to the skin tag that's what really trips me out. I bet if somebody put it on a cotton ball and held it on their skin tags it would work even faster! God bless keep up the good work.
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.
Skin Tags -- Dry Ice! It is so simple, yet you must be careful with it. I discovered the use of Dry Ice when I was searching for the cause and cure for "little blood blisters" on my scrotum. I found someone who said that breaking dry ice into slivers and putting the end of a sliver directly on a blood blister and then counting..."one thousand one, one thousand two...all the way to one thousand five" gave the time to "fix" it. About five days later, the blood blister had dried up, and finally fell off. The skin underneath was lighter in color after the scab fell off. But, the final result was phenomenal. I was embarrassed, not anymore. Anyhow, After my success with blood blisters on my scrotum, I decided to try dry ice on my wifes skin tags under her arms. They were ugly, some were large. I put the points of dry ice directly on the skin tags and pressed down firmly for about 5 seconds. After about 8 to 10 days, they dried up and fell off. You will have slight scarring which lightens up over several months, but the skin tags have not came back.
YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WITH DRY ICE. USE COTTON GLOVE WITH THE RUBBER DIPPED ON THE PALM AND FINGERS to prevent burns. YOU MUST ONLY TOUCH WHAT YOU WANT TO FREEZE OFF, AS ANY OTHER SKIN WILL BE BURNED.
You can get dry ice at your local grocer. for less than a dollar, you will have enought to "freeze" your tags and blisters and play with the rest. I haven't tried this on moles, but it may work as well there. Try this on one or two areas not seen outside of your clothing, and see how it works out for you. God Bless!

Essiac Tea removes skin tags. I was drinking 2 ounces of brewed Essiac tea twice a day for 3 months and noticed that all the skin tags on my neck had just disappeared. I was taking Essiac tea just to boost my immune system. I had skin tags on my neck for about 5 years and was amazed that they just disappeared. Essiac tea is available on the internet in tea form, as tea bags, and in bulk (3 pound) herbs. When you buy in bulk the price is significantly less.
Another home remedy for warts or skin tags is Garlic! A girlfriend of mine told me about the garlic a long time ago for warts. My daughter at that time had a really bad wort on the bottom of her foot. I tried the most popular wart removal agent fromthe pharmacy on it and they still didnt remove wart. I then tried the Garlic. Take a fresh slice of garlic preferably from the middle of the clove. Apply directly onto wart then cover the garlic slice that is on top of wart with bandaide. Making sure no area of wart or garlic is exposed. So put a second bandaide on top in opposite direction of first bandaide to make sure garlic doesnt fall off. Do this at night and leave on overnight. Wart should be gone by next day, if not repeat the following night. Guarentee it will be gone. The same can be done for skin tags! You will notice that it has shrunk in size by the next day. You most lijely need to repeat again until completely gone, depending on size of the skin tag. Hopes this helps others. This has been the most effective and cost efficient and least painful of all options.
I noticed a skin tag near my anus a few months ago. I came onto earthclinic and followed some advice offered. I started with tea tree - neat on the skin, a few drops on the palm and then transferred direct and neat onto the skin tag. Did it twice a day, once in the morning and again at night. I kept at it for about two weeks, and much as I would like believe otherwise, it didn't shrink. I gave up with tea tree and left it as is I then tried iodine. I have Lugol's iodine 2%, again, onto my palm and then neat onto the skin tag. Did it on and off every few days but I noticed it got bigger. It seemed to have swelled up and got bigger. I gave up on iodine. I left it as is and figured, at some point in time, I'll head off to the doctor's clinic and get them to nitrogen it. Didn't do anything else for a few more weeks but it definitely got bigger.
By chance, I found a bottle of greater celandine tincture in my drawer. I knew it was warts and stuff but not sure about skin tag and keloids. It was a 15 year old bottle of tincture and I figured there was nothing effective about it but before I threw the bottle out, why not do something with it. I applied again, a few drops to the palm and transferred to the skin tag. Some days later, I checked it and it was shrivelling. The 'plumbness' that it felt was shrivelling. I applied it again. Left it for another two days. it shrivelled more. I applied it twice more, a few days apart each and yesterday, having forgotten about it over the festive season, I could barely find it. It was the size of a raisin previously and it was definitely less than 1/5th of the original. I will apply it again and I am quite confident I can rid of it.
I had a couple of tags on my neck making me look like an old woman. Giving them a firm rub with a QTip soaked in H2O2 caused them to foam up and open up. Not going to say it was comfortable - stung quite a bit - but repeat applications for a week dried them out and they scabbed up and fell off.
Going to try ACV and bandaid on less visible ones on my abdomen.
Five stars for effect - no scarring. But I think probably clipping them would be just as painful and probably shorter duration process.
I am 62 and a skin tag / mole popped up on my right shoulder out of the blue --- so I had my husband ruff it up with a emery board -- just slightly and then put a drop of hydrogen peroxide on it and within doing this for a week --- IT IS GONE ---- easy and no surgery --
Hydrogen Peroxide and nail polish for skin tag: My husband had an ugly skin tag close to his eye. He used hydrogen peroxide for about two weeks and it started to dry out. Then he got very impatient and wanted to have it surgically removed. I told him to continue with the Peroxide, which he did for another week.
Then he said it was not drying fast enough. So I advised him to use nail polish. He painted the tag with it, going under it also. In five days the tag fell. He was so happy, and marveled about how the peroxide and polish had worked and there was no scar or mark whatsoever. He is telling all his high flying friends what happened.
A nevus is little black pigmented spot on the skin, sometimes called a beauty spot. Mine was flat, about 6-7 mm in diameter and near my neck and slightly elevated. It's been there for probably 20 years.
I dipped a q-tip in 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide and applied it to the nevus only for a few seconds and then mopped the excess with the dry end of the q-tip. It burned a little, especially on later applications. I applied liquid vitamin A a few minutes afterwards to decrease the burning and promote healing. I did 3-4 applications over a period of a week. It fell off completely after a week and has not returned. My wife was very impressed. I'm not recommended this approach, but simply reporting my personal experiment. I've been experimenting with Bill Munro's inhaling approach for a little over a week. It appears to be working well. My energy has just about doubled and I'm breathing much better at night.
50 year old male. Got some cheap povidone and applied a couple of times a day to the skin tag with a cotton swap. Just a red spot left after a few days.
