Question by moca: Anyone knows a natural cure for skin tags?
I have these things called skin tags on my neck and they itch like hell. But my insurance doesn’t cover the removal of these skin tags because it’s considered cosmetic. Anyone knows a natural cure or an over-the-counter medicine I can use?

This tiny skin growth generally causes no symptoms unless it is repeatedly irritated as, for example, by the collar or in the crotch. I guess yours is irritated thats why it causes itching. In cases in which a skin tag is irritated or cosmetically unwanted, treatment may be done by freezing the tag with liquid nitrogen, tying off the tag with a thread or suture so as to cut off the blood supply, or cutting off (excising) the tag with a scalpel or scissors. I guarantee this would work but I highly suggest in tying it 1st.
