Castor oil skin tags

Skin tags are growths that appear on the skin’s surface. They are benign and are not a sign of any serious condition. They mostly appear on the areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing. These include neck, underarms and groin area.

Skin tags are mostly flesh colored or slightly darker. They may be smooth or slightly wrinkles in texture. They are mostly painless and not a cause for concern.

People who are obese, have diabetes or have a family history of skin tags are more likely to get them. They can also occur due to hormonal changes or during pregnancy. Skin tags can be removed by cosmetic surgery. But in this post we will explore about the use of castor oil to remove skin tags.

There are many skin benefits of using castor oil on the skin. Many people use it to remove skin tags. But there is no scientific evidence to support this claim. Still some people think that they can help to shrink or remove them.

Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid. This is regarded to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Castor oil also can moisturize the skin which could make it easier to remove skin tags.

So if you are convinced that you can get rid of skin tags using castor oil then you apply it directly to the affected areas. Dip a cotton ball in castor oil and apply it to the skin tag and surrounding areas. You can leave the oil overnight or for several hours. Repeat this process until the skin tag shrinks or falls off.

Though skin tags are mostly benign they must always be examined by a healthcare professional to ensure that they are not a serious skin condition.

If you are not successful in removing skin tags with castor oil then there are other natural remedies that you can use to remove them. Some of them are mentioned below.

You can use tea tree oil in diluted form to remove skin tags. Apply it directly to the skin tag using a cotton swab twice daily till the tag falls.

The second home remedy is to use apple cider vinegar. Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and apply it to the skin tag. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. Do this daily until the skin tag falls off.

Third remedy is to use a vitamin E capsule. Break open one such capsule and apply the oil directly to the skin tag. Cover this with a bandage and leave it overnight. Do this daily until the tag falls off.

Crush a garlic clove and apply the juice to the skin tag. Cover this with a bandage and leave it overnight. Do this daily until the tag falls off.

Now these are home remedies and they may not work for everyone. Some may show longer to show results. Also if the skin tag is painful then it is recommended to visit a health care professional preferably a dermatologist.

In conclusion

You can use castor oil to remove skin tags. If it is not successful then we have mentioned a few other home remedies.
