Treatment of Skin Tags
Skin tags are small, benign outgrowths that mainly protrude from areas where, the skin forms creases and folds. On average, they attain sizes less than 1cm.
Acrochorda is the scientific name for skin tags. Acrochordon is the singular of acrochorda. Skin tags have other names such as soft fibroma, cutaneous papilloma, skin tabs and fibroepithelial polyps.
You can diagnose your condition by simple visual observation. The surface of a fibroepithelial polyp is usually irregular. It looks like a nipple.
You can be infected by a single fibroepithelial polyp. On other occasions, they might number in the hundreds, covering a fairly large surface area of the skin. When they occur on the genitalia, they can be easily confused with genital warts. You might need a medical biopsy; in order to be sure whether, you are dealing with fibroepithelial polyps or genital warts.
Fibroepithelial polyps can develop on any body part; however, they usually develop around skin folds. The neck, armpit and groin are the most frequently affected body parts.
Fat people are particularly impacted by fibroepithelial polyps. Fibroepithelial polyps result from skin rubbing against skin. Fat people have more overlapping layers of skin that rubs against skin; consequently, fat people are more likely to develop fibroepithelial polyps.
Children and toddlers can be infected by fibroepithelial polyps; however, the condition is more prevalent among middle aged people.

You can get rid of a fibroepithelial polyp with the help of dental floss. Surround the base of the tumor with your dental floss. Snugly tie a knot at the base and keep it in place.
This ligation technique can also be performed with a suturing thread, fishing line or even small rubber bands.
This ligation technique works by cutting off blood supply to the tumor. Hence, it is absolutely imperative that, the knot is tied firmly enough, to cut off blood flow to the fibroepithelial polyp. If the knot gets loose, after a few days, re-tighten it. After a few days or weeks, the tumor will gradually atrophy and fall off.
You can treat your condition with the help of the alcohol in nail polish.
Have a close look at your fibroepithelial polyp under a beam of bright white light. You’ll notice that, the colour of the uppermost portion of the protrusion is lighter than the lower portion of the protrusion. Take out your nail cutter and trim off this lighter, uppermost portion of the fibroepithelial polyp.
You wouldn’t feel any pain, if you cut off the very tip of the tumor because this region does not have any nerve endings. In addition, there will be very little or no bleeding, if the cutting is done correctly because the blood vessels in this region are constricted.
With the help of the brush, apply some nail polish on the freshly cut tip of the tumor. Apply the nail polish at least thrice daily. You can accelerate the healing process by wiggling the tumor, every day.
You can treat fibroepithelial polyps with apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar can be purchased from any local grocery worth its salt. You’ll also need a q-tip or cotton bud. We are referring to the normal cotton buds, used in cleaning the ears.
Dip the cotton bud in the apple cider vinegar and dap your tumor with it. Do this at least three times, daily. Apple cider vinegar is mildly corrosive; hence, it might sting and burn. Take precautions to avoid spills on healthy skin.

The ligation method is not very practical for numerous tumors. It works for a single tumor but keeping the knot tight becomes a real challenge, when dealing with several tumors.
The friction of your clothing is likely to make the knot loose. This is problematic because the effectiveness of the ligation technique depends on the tautness of the knot. The knot must be taut enough to cut off blood flow to the tumor.
