--Clean skin tag with some mild soap and water. Pat dry but leave the tag slightly damp.
--Scratch the entire skin tag's surface with a sterile, stainless needle. Concentrate on the skin tag's center or base. Use the emery board to scratch and rough up the entire surface of the skin tag(s).
Take a teaspoon of castor oil and mix it with a small amount of baking soda. A thin paste is required.
You need to take a small amount of this mixture and rub it the skin tag(s) until it is partially absorbed. This process is advised to be done for about 2 minutes. Make sure you apply enough so the areas you have scratched are covered completely.
Following the first application, apply a slightly more of the mixture over the top and have it covered with a band-aid.
Repeat steps one, three, four, and five, three times a day: once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once again right before you go to bed. You will not have to scratch the surface of the skin tag after the first time.
Be patient! Sometimes it takes from three days to three weeks for the skin tag(s) to fall out. However, it entirely depends upon the skin type. For this reason keep doing this process until the skin tag has fallen off completely.
Scratching is the most important part of the process, since it allows the mixture to penetrate to the core of the skin tag(s). If you can't use both hands, you may need another person to help you with that step. Some of skin tag(s) are hard. It is advised to soak them in water for approximately half an hour.
A slight stinging should be sensed on the tag, this will make sure that mixture has reached the actual place. If this is not felt then it means that the application will not bear the proper results. Do it again by scratching deeper.
Treated skin tag(s) should be covered at all times after the mixture is applied. Remember! Not to take away the band-aid because premature removal can slow down the healing process. The skin tag(s) will usually fall off anywhere between three days to three weeks, though some individuals taking as long as six weeks.
Redness of the skin around the treated skin tag(s) is a normal and indicates the healing process. Such discoloration quickly disappears. Slightly red or pink tissue is seen. Normally it disappears when the skin becomes toned to the environment. It takes from two to four weeks, depending upon the skin type.
