Skin tags, are also known as fibroepithelial polyps or acrochordon, are small dark brown or flesh colored outgrowths of the skin.  Skin tags typically occur where there is a fold in the skin, like the neck, under breasts, and around the eyelids. In most cases, skin tags are painless and are entirely harmless. However, they may be unsightly, affecting your self-esteem. Thankfully, skin tags can heal with several at-home remedies. Please don't use any of these remedies for removing a skin tag from your eye-lid or any other delicate part of the body.

1. Garlic Slices

Garlic has many health benefits, including the ability to help you get rid of skin tags. Amazingly garlic is rich in sulfur compounds that help dry out skin tags. For skin tags, cut a slice out of a peeled garlic clove and put it on the tag. To secure it in place, use an adhesive bandage or medical tape and leave it on overnight. Remove the bandage and garlic slice the following morning. Repeat the procedure every night with a new slice of fresh garlic clove until the tag falls off the skin.
