Although warts are benign skin growths, they do pose some aesthetic problem to people that have them. They typically aren’t painful, except when they are irritated or bleed. All in all, it’s their unpleasant appearance that bothers people and makes them want to get rid of this cosmetic issue as soon as possible.
Skin tags are very similar to warts in appearance. Unlike warts, which usually result from a HPV infection, skin tags normally appear in places on your body that skin folds or that are more prone to sweating – your armpits, neck and face. They usually look like small hanging balloons, which makes them quite appalling.
Even though they aren’t a serious health threat, both warts and skin tags are something that everyone would like to get rid of in the soonest possible way.
There’s one folk remedy that has proved beneficial for most people that have tried it, and it’s apple cider vinegar.
The medicinal properties of ACV in relation to skin issues have long been known and used in natural medicine. For one thing, this ingredient contains antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, all of which make it the perfect tool for removing warts and skin tags effectively and painlessly without leaving scars.
Clean the affected skin thoroughly. Put a few drops of ACV on a Band-Aid and apply on the wart/skin tag. Clean the wart carefully every time before you apply ACV. Also, make sure you use a new Band-Aid every day. If you use this treatment on regular daily basis, your wart or skin tag should fall off in 5 days. Continue with the same method a few more days if the wart is more stubborn.
