Homeopathic Tag Away or Dermatologic Surgery?

by Paul on September 2, 2013

Have you ever heard of Arochorda? Chances are you haven’t, if you’re not involved in the medical profession in any way. You may, however, know it under the more common name of skin tags. A lot of people suffer from them – and a similarly large number of sufferers have a hard time finding a good treatment for this widespread issues. Some try costly topical treatments, others go see their dermatologists for surgery, while others still choose to use the homeopathic treatment Tag Away. Skin tags, which are actually a form of benign tumor, can cause a lot of stress, not to mention associate pains, plus the expense of treating them. If you’ve ever experienced them, you will want to read on, for a hands-on comparison of two treatment options.

Tag Away: The homeopathic alternative

There are many topical formulas out there, which promise to get you rid of skin tags. However, the problem with most allopathic solutions is that they are expensive and take a lot of time before you actually start seeing some results. Not so with Tag Away, a formula based on Thuja ocidentalis, which can help solve your issue in as little as three weeks. Thuja ocidentalis is a plant, which makes the formula entirely safe for human use – you don’t need to worry about any synthetic chemicals coming in direct contact with the aTag Away bottleffected area on your skin. Since there are no manmade active substances included in this form of treatment, the risk of side effects from using Tag Away are also substantially lower than those associated with regular formulas. This one causes no scars or irritations and can be used as often as you want to use it.

The standard treatment lasts for 3 to 8 weeks, depending on the size of the affected area and the seriousness of the issue. Some users reported seeing results almost immediately, while others did attest it took them a somewhat longer time to see some healing taking place. Since this formula is no miracle, it’s only natural that results will vary from one patient to another. Yet it’s important to know that using it is not going to be too much of a hassle. All you need to do is apply it to the skin tags (which usually form in areas where skin folds) with a cotton swab or eye dropper. Typically, in about a month the effect is going to kick in – and, the best part: you are not going to be left with any irritations or unsightly scars.

Surgery against skin tags

If waiting for that long is not your cup of tea, you can also opt for a visit to your dermatologist. Simply get your general practitioner to recommend a professional dermatology specialist in your area, then schedule a visit. Bear in mind that dermatologic treatment is costly – according to some, it ranks among the most expensive type of medical treatment today. Then, your doctor is going to present you with your options for skin tag removal. One is to have them frozen via a chemical process, which takes very little time to complete. There is, however, a major downside to this seemingly efficient solution. Patients reported experiencing intense pain in the aftermath of chemical freeze – not something one would expect after removing such a small area of skin. The truth is that skin is the largest organ of the human body. Tampering with it will cause pain, so if you know your pain resistance thresholds to be generally low, you might want to reconsider your options. Classic surgery is the second dermatologic alternative, yet the problem with it is that it will significantly drive up your health care budget for the month. If you tend to develop skin tags frequently, chances are you’re better off using homeopathic treatment formulas to begin with.
