Vinegar on skin tags
I used regular old white vinegar on a very large skin tag just under my chest area. That fits the description of 'folds or creases' mentioned here. Sweat collects in that region, so it irritates the skin is my best guest.
Everyone talks about apple cider vinegar, but honestly, vinegar is vinegar when using it to DESTROY HUMAN FLESH! I would soak a cotton ball with vinegar, squeeze out the excess, then place it on the growth. Over this I would apply a very large elastic plaster; the kind that has at least a 2"X 2" bandage in the center. Why? Because it's merely to hold the very damp cotton ball in place. The adhesive on these plasters are wide and far away from the center.
Doing this every day for a week had significant results. It had shrunk to less than half its original size. another four days it was gone. There is a bump where it used to be--think tree stump--but it never came back.
Since this was so large, I thought I would do the same to several I have in my groin area. Actually the upper left and right thighs. They are small, but very irritating because of chafing. Since there were about 3 or 4 on one side and about the same on the other, I improved the method.
I soaked a thin wash cloth in a mixture of vinegar and water (2 parts vinegar to 1 part water). This mixture might sting after prolonged use, but I wanted to get rid of them so I dealt with it. I placed the cloth (one for each leg) over the main area that covered all the tags. Then I wrapped plastic wrap around my legs to hold each cloth in place. I would leave them in place for as long as I had time for. Sometimes an hour, sometimes half a day! The tags totally disappeared within 9 days, the smaller ones a few days less.
NOTE: the vinegar definitely irritates the skin, as it is an organic acid. I would apply aloe vera to the skin surrounding the tags, but I wouldn't put any ON the actual tags.
Hope this helps someone! :)
