Skin tag myths
There are several skin tag myths, please discover below some common ones you should know about. To find out more about skin tags visit our What is a Skin Tag Section.
Myth 1: Skin tags are dangerous or cancerous
Myth 2: Skin tags only occur if I am unhealthy or unhygienic
Whilst it is not known exactly why skin tags form, it is quite certain that they are not related to a lack of personal hygiene. The NHS website refers to skin tags as a cosmetic rather than a health condition. You may find that you are more prone to skin tags at certain times of your life – for example if you are pregnant, or as you get older.
Myth 3: Skin tags are contagious
Myth 4: Cider apple vinegar can treat my skin tag
Myth 5: Herbal remedies will make my skin tags disappear
Myth 6: Skin tag removal causes scarring
The final skin tag myth that you should be aware of is that skin tag removal causes scarring. This need not be the case. It is quite possible to remove a skin tag safely, without scarring. Cryotag will leave you with smooth, blemish free skin after treatment. However, it is important to use a safe and trusted method for skin tag removal to avoid the risks of scarring. If you remove a skin tag with scissors, or tie it off with cotton, you are increasing your chances of infection which could lead to scarring. Visit our How to Remove Skin tags Section for more information about how you can use skin tag removal kits safely.
