Tag moles are flesh-toned skin growths that appear on various parts of the body such as the neck, eyelids, chest, armpits and folds. Tag moles are benign, excess pieces of skin that connect to the surface tissues of your body by a small stalk. While tag moles are rarely associated with serious illnesses, they are often removed for cosmetic reasons. You can remove your tag mole using two simple methods: snipping and apple cider vinegar application.
Things You'll Need
- Rubbing alcohol wipes
- Dental floss
- Anti-bacterial ointment
- Gauze pads
- Adhesive bandage
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- Two cotton balls
Sterilize your pair of scissors using one or two rubbing alcohol wipes. Wipe the blades carefully.
Wrap the base of the tag mole with the 2-inch piece of dental floss. Tie the dental floss securely after you have finished wrapping the tag mole’s base.
Cut the tag mole off using the sterilized scissors.
Apply anti-bacterial ointment to the wound and cover with a gauze pad to prevent debris from infecting the laceration.
Secure the gauze pad using an adhesive bandage. Reapply the anti-bacterial ointment and change the dressings twice daily to prevent infection.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Pour 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar into a small saucer.
Soak one or two cotton balls in the apple cider and apply to the tag mole. Rub the tag mole with the apple cider soaked cotton ball for five minutes. Apple cider vinegar contains anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties such as amino acids that can aid the removal of skin blemishes such as tag moles.
Allow the apple cider to dry naturally on the tag mole. Repeat this treatment three times daily for best results. The tag mole should turn black and fall off within four to five days of treatment.
Tips & Warnings
- Purchase organic apple cider vinegar to achieve best results. Additional processing can extract the natural-healing properties of the apple cider vinegar.
- Always consult a dermatologist before self-removing a tag mole. You must properly dress the wound after anti-bacterial ointment application to avoid infection. If bleeding persists after tag mole snipping method, seek medical attention immediately. Apple cider vinegar is highly acidic and may irritate sensitive skin types.
