Skin Tags
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Sandy
Posted on: April 20, 2007

I keep having these skin tags come up in different places on my body. My neck is the main place, but also underarms, where my bra line is and a few on my stomach. Is there anything that I can take or put on these to get rid of them. They are not attractive at all. Several years ago I went to a dermatologist who burned several of them off. But they keep returning.

The cause of skin tags (small, non-cancerous skin growths protruding from the body) is unknown, but their growth may be related to increasing age, obesity, insulin resistance (diabetic or pre-diabetic), human papilloma virus (as are warts)or irritation from skin folds rubbing together. I suggest that you consult with a qualified medical or clinical herbalist to help you discover possible factors in your case.
