The scientific name of skin tags is acrochordon, and this skin issue results from the buildup of blood vessels and collagen in the thicker parts of the skin.
Skin tags are not considered to be a health issue; they are just small fleshy outgrowths, deformed in shape, which most people want to remove as they do not consider them aesthetically nice. They commonly occur in the underarm area, eyelids, neck, arms and on the lower part of the breast, affecting both men and women.
Fortunately, they can be easily removed by using natural ways of removal.
Here are some of them:
