Tag Away Before/After Picture

Tag Away Before After Picture : Dramatization use 3 to 8 weeks

Guess what?  There really is a painless way to eliminate those annoying and disgusting skin tags.  You don’t have to live with them because you are too embarrassed to go to the doctor or are concerned about scars.  I came across Tag Away, a natural homeopathic skin tag removal system, while searching for information about skin tags.

I knew once I became older I would have to deal with common skin imperfections, such as age spots, fine wrinkles, red blotches, and dryness; however, I really never heard much about skin tags. I decided to do some research on these unsightly skin growths once I began to develop more in different areas of my body.

Not only are they ugly, but some of them are actually bothersome.  I was so excited to find Tag Away because although I had avoided going to the doctor for a while, I was developing some that were going to have to be removed.  Now I don’t have to mess with the embarrassment of showing my doctor.

Are these worrisome skin growths really harmless? What causes skin tags? Is there a difference between women skin tags and men skin tags? Do these pesky skin growths have to be surgically removed or are the natural methods for removing skin tags effective? Will they grow back after removal? This Tag Away review will discuss these topics, as well as information I learned about this skin tag removal home remedy.

What is Tag Away?

This topical remedy works to remove skin tags naturally. It does not contain any chemicals and can be used on all skin types. This painless, inexpensive method does not leave any scars and works within three to eight weeks. Seem like a long time?  It may be a little bit longer than other techniques, but it is definitely less invasive and a lot less expensive!  And remember, the Tag Away removal system will not leave scars like some of the other treatments can cause.  What’s the point in removing a tag at all if there is still going to be an indication that one was there?  This is probably my favorite feature of this natural tag removal system.

This natural homeopathic remedy is made from all natural ingredients with the key ingredient being Thuja Occidentalis. This ingredient was listed as the main active ingredient. Thuja Occidentalis is derived from an evergreen tree found in the Northeastern parts of the US and Southeastern parts of Canada.

This particular oil has been around for centuries and is known for its amazing health benefits. It has been linked to improving digestion, boosting the immune system, reducing stress and anxiety, and improving skin. In the 1800s, this ingredient was known for its ability to eliminate warts, thrush, and ringworm. It is now considered to be a powerful skin tag remover. I really like that Tag Away is natural.

The other ingredients listed include:

  • Cedar Leaf Oil
  • Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil
  • Ricinus Communis Seed Oil

Those formulas that contain  chemicals may possibly work faster, but the idea of chemicals eating away at the skin tags that I have all over my body is a little scary.  I think I prefer the natural route

What are Skin Tags?

Another Skin Tags PictureSkin tags are harmless skin over growths that are commonly seen in middle aged women and men. They are an overgrowth of your epidermal skin that overlaps the dermis area over time and are made up of nerve cells, core of fibers and ducts, and fat cells. They vary in texture and color; however, they tend to generally be smooth or slightly wrinkled and are usually flesh-colored.

These harmless skin growths hang loosely from a small, narrow stalk. They vary in size; however, they can begin as small as a pinhead and can grow up to 5 cm in diameter. Most skin tags are tiny at approximately 2 to 5mm in diameter.

There are a number of medical terms associated with this extremely common condition. These include: acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma, fibroepithelial polyp (FEP), fibroma pendulan, pendunculated fibroma, and soft fibroma. The most common medical term used is acrochordon; however, your doctor may use any of the above terms. Regardless of which term is used to describe this common condition, all terms mean they are benign skin growths.

Although they are usually harmless, I have to say that some of mine are in areas that actually cause them to be uncomfortable due to friction.  This is especially true for those of you who have larger than normal sized tags.  Removing them in these areas is definitely recommended.

Causes of Skin Tags

Medline Plus Skin Tags graphicThe causes of this common condition are not completely known; however, there are some possible causes that have been considered. It appears that repetitive skin friction is a common cause. Skin tags occur most often in middle aged women and men; however, children and young adults can still develop these abnormal skin growths.

People who are overweight, obese, or pregnant are more prone to develop skin tags, as well as those diagnosed with diabetes and HPV. Believe it or not, they can possibly be inherited! I’ll be sure to thank my parents for that one!

Overweight and/or obese people tend to form them in the folds of skin where it is rubbing with other skin causing friction. Hormonal changes can also be the cause in pregnant women. Patients with diabetes, especially Type 2, tend to develop skin tags. This could be due to the fact that obesity is associated with diabetes. Insulin resistance is also being considered as a cause. Researchers indicate they could be a sign to help you prevent diabetes, as well.

Differences Between Women Skin Tags and Men Skin Tags

Men and women alike may develop them on the neck, armpits, and eyelids. Women are prone to vaginal skin tags most often during pregnancy because of hormone imbalances and stretching of the skin. Women are also more apt to develop them under their breasts.

Men may develop penis skin tags due to friction caused by wearing tight underwear, using condoms, and sexual intercourse. Urinary catheters have also been considered as a cause for men skin tags. Basically, any type of friction in this area can lead to abnormal skin growths. While they can cause alarm in men and women, these abnormal skin growths are harmless.

If they occur in these areas, you will definitely want to remove them with a natural solution, rather than a surgical solution.  This is obviously where the embarrassment of seeing a doctor develops.  Now there is a way you can avoid this conflict and take care of the problem on your own.

When to See the Doctor

While skin tags are generally harmless, they are classified as a tumor. This can be intimidating and actually scary to hear, especially if you have developed a number of them over the years, like me! However, rest assured these are considered benign skin growths and will not become cancerous if left untreated unless they are not actually skin tags.

There is always the extremely rare possibility, but highly unlikely, that a skin tag can become precancerous or cancerous. Without scaring you, I wanted to be sure you knew when to see the doctor.

If the skin tags bleed (without aggravation), become larger, or are different colors (brown, red, pink, or black), you should contact your doctor so he/she can take a biopsy to make sure it hasn’t been caused by some other medical condition, such as skin cancer. Rarely, skin cancers such as squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, and basal cell carcinoma can mimic skin tags.

While these abnormal skin growths are most often considered to be harmless, it is always better to be safe than sorry. Keep in mind that even if the above markers occur, there are other reasons why a skin tag could change in color. It could become irritated due to continually being rubbed or snagged causing it to become red from bleeding or black from twisting.

Removing Skin Tags

There are a number of medical and natural remedies for skin tag removal. If you choose the medical route, your doctor may choose to freeze them with liquid nitrogen, burn them using electric cautery, or cut them with medical scissors.

These medical options could cause minor issues. Minor bleeding can occur with the use of medical scissors. Freezing or burning can cause temporary skin discoloration and numerous sessions may need to be scheduled before the skin growths fall off.

There are a variety of home remedies available for skin tag removal. Some people say that tying the tag at the base with dental floss will cut off the blood supply which will eventually make the skin tag fall off.

Others have used vitamin E and a band-aid while others have used Duct tape! There are also different types of topical products available. Some contain chemicals while other are natural homeopathic methods like Tag Away.

Getting rid of these nasty skin growths is a top priority for me.  However, I became frustrated at the costs involved.  I found Tag Away to be much less expensive and invasive than any of the medical routes.  Sure, the home remedies are less expensive; however, I am not sure how reliable they would actually be and I don’t like the idea of tying dental floss around one of these.  Can you imagine putting Duct tape on your skin, let alone a skin tag?  Ouch!

What sold me on Tag Away other than the cost, the natural ingredients, and the fact that there would be no pain was that I could apply it to all of my skin tags at once and there would never be any indication that I ever had them.  There would be no scars!  This is something that concerned me with the medical and home remedies found on the Internet.

How Tag Away Works

This natural formula comes in liquid form. It is to be applied three times per day. The essential oils penetrate your skin’s surface and slowly dry the tags out. They will then wither up and drop off. It is important to apply to a clean area for the maximum effect. Make sure you do not apply any other skin products on the area you are treating.

Here is a video on Tag Away I found that is worth watching and you can visit the Tag Away official site here.


Fortunately, skin tags are generally harmless and removing these unsightly skin growths is a simple process. I am glad there are natural remedies I can do from home that do not require a doctor’s visit. I would consider Tag Away as opposed to other topical skin tag removers because it is natural and does not contain harmful chemicals.

It is important to understand that this homeopathic skin tag remover will only work if you are diligent about applying it. You must not miss a day of application, or you will not see the best results. Although Tag Away seems to be a longer process than burning, freezing, or surgery, I prefer to take care of these in the comfort of my own home.  In fact, privacy is a huge issue for me because some of these skin growths are in extremely embarrassing areas.

One bottle costs about $19.99 plus $9.95 for processing and handling. One visit to the doctor for me is literally $100, and that does not even include any treatment!

The website is now offering a free bottle with the purchase of one. . Since all I have to do is dab them with a cotton swab, I think I can actually get rid of all of my skin tags with these two bottles!  I have to admit, the free bottle offer and positive reviews basically sealed the deal for me. There is a 30 day money back guarantee. If you do not want the expense and hassle of having them removed by a doctor, then Tag Away may be just what you need to rid your body of these pesky skin growths. I am so excited to start Tag Away.   In just a few short weeks these disgusting skin growths will be history!

    has anyone REALLY got results with this stuff? it stinks so badly, i don’t know if i — or anyone around me — can stand six weeks of the “therapy.”

    • Dona Stevens on November 5, 2012 at 9:09 am said:

      I agree it is a strong odor but I didn’t want to have to go to the doctor and have it cut off. I have noticed after two weeks a difference but I am told it takes 3-8 weeks so lets see.

    • Trish on December 11, 2012 at 10:13 am said:

      Hi Marteeka,

      First it worked for me after many weeks. I was really discourage at first and like you the smell was something! After many weeks yes! Hang in there!

  • Lisa on December 9, 2012 at 1:57 pm said:

    I have had just the opposite and worked on one under my arm. I guess it just doesn’t help some people and does others.

  • Dr. griot on December 12, 2012 at 6:36 pm said:

    Natural remedies take more time than conventional treatments. And are not only less expensive, but less invasive. They get to the root cause, instead of suppressing. You can also take Thuja internally with homeopathic pellets that you place under the tongue- they have a sweet taste. Diet, exercise, and meditation can help fight the virus that causes warts of all kind. Okay, I guess a lifestyle and mindset.

  • Dolores Picone on December 19, 2012 at 1:47 pm said:

    I had the same experience. What would cause it not to work on some people. I followed the instructions to a T.

  • Allison on December 24, 2012 at 5:44 pm said:

    Interesting that they say it takes 3-8 weeks to see results, but they give only a 30 day money back guarantee. I would think if the company were more confident in the product they would give at least a long enough money-back guarantee that allows you to use it the full 8 weeks and get your money back if it didn’t work.

    • admin on December 25, 2012 at 11:00 am said:

      Hi Allison,

      I noticed that too during my review. My biggest complaint is their short money back of 30 days.

      However, there have been so many 10’s of thousands sold and only a few people complain. Of course, the happy people in general never come back to post how great the product was, but the ones unhappy tend to.

    • admin on February 5, 2013 at 10:39 am said:

      Hi Keri,

      Tagaway states that it takes three to eight weeks. Each person is different. It is really ashame for those who quit after five weeks as it can take longer (or less).

  • keisha on February 15, 2013 at 4:13 pm said:

    Hey this is keisha I been using tagaway for four weeks now and the area has started inching and burning I got a rash which It was not doing that before so I am wondering is that normal that it could be about to fall off that’s why its doing that I do not want 2 give up my tags are on my neck so ugly

  • Lisa on February 24, 2013 at 3:04 am said:

    I was struggling to decide what kind of treatment to get for my skin tags, and Tag away seems like a great solution. thanks for the detailed review and making my decision easier!

  • Rudy on March 7, 2013 at 9:30 pm said:

    I am probably on week four, having dealt with the smell aspect and trying at best to apply it 3x daily. But kind of rough to do at work with the smell. But if I’m home I do it more often. So I don’t know if I picked it a little or if anyone has had this issue… it started to get red around the area, size of a dime (oh it’s on my stomach btw). Then it bled a little, but I think while I was applying it, so it’s like half breaking off. I don’t want to stop it if I’m close, but I’m wondering how I can trust a product that doesn’t explain exactly what happens for different people. It keeps talking about starting the product, but no ending. So if anyone knows if this is normal or not, please let me know. I am now using a Band-aid over it just so it doesn’t get infected. But if I should stop it, wish I knew when that point is. I say go to the dermatologist and freeze it. May be embarrassing for a minute or two, but it’s really minutes, not weeks! So if you have insurance I say Tag NoWay, if you don’t have insurance, lets give this blog some valuable info. Thanks to anyone who replies that this has happened to and/or who completed TagAway till the end! We need the middle of what happens! lol

  • ren on March 9, 2013 at 12:15 am said:

    I’m on week 2, most days I apply 2 times a day even though it says 3 times a day. The smell is not the best but I can see that they are starting to dry up some.Getting smaller. I have 2 under my arms. It seems to me that it is going to work for me.

  • kris j on March 9, 2013 at 9:30 pm said:

    I have a child on the autism spectrum with tags, we tried the doctors but with his sensory issues he said he felt like he was being burned. I am more prone to using homeopathy as a rule, so we are used to the strong smell of some remedies. I really need to know if there is any pain associated with the process. Has anyone else used tag away on a child (10 year old)?

  • Malcolm Reynolds on April 16, 2013 at 9:36 am said:

    Im curious about this product. How well does this work on small skin tags?
    I noticed that in the informercial it was used on people with larger sized skin tags.
    I have them mostly on my neck so how long does it take to dry b4 i can put a shirt on?

  • Jen on April 23, 2013 at 7:16 pm said:

    Found this at a local grocery outlet for under 10 bucks. I put it on 3 tags before I leave for work, when I get home, and before bed and I’m committed to do this for 2 months. I don’t mind the scent, it’s very similar to tea tree oil, a bit strong but I don’t notice it at all after it dries.
    I have one in an area that is difficult to leave untouched for awhile after application, so I worry the oil might be getting rubbed off too soon, I guess time will tell. Will comment in a couple months if this stuff works for me.

  • ed on May 6, 2013 at 12:05 pm said:

    I’ve had great results with this product. I have skin tags around my eyes and forehead area. I’ve used this product for a few weeks and the tags got smaller, but you must continue to apply the product, or they start coming back. I removed a huge skin tag on the left side of my eye. This product does work.

  • Malcolm Reynolds on May 6, 2013 at 2:51 pm said:

    Im interested in this product.
    how long does it take to dry?
    also i don’t have large skin tags. my are small in size about quarter of a size of a grain of rice. so i wonder if this will work on fairly small size skin tag.

  • Donna on May 7, 2013 at 12:51 am said:

    I am using tag away and it does work, I have had a few turn black and fall off. I have two that are bigger and taking longer it has been 8 weeks. But it does work I am not sure if there is a time frame to use the product I don’t think it will hurt to use it longer since there are no chemicals. anyway keep trying it worked for me. and I am not giving up on the two big ones.

  • Joanne on June 2, 2013 at 6:10 pm said:

    I have been using Tag Away for over 3 weeks religiously…I have many underneath my breasts….the tags were brown and now they are all red and itchy. They were itchy at first and the itch subsided when I first started using Tag Away….now the itch has returned and the Tag Away now stings when I put it on and my skin is red….I’m beginning to give up hope on Tag Away and just go to the doctor and see if they will remove them. Just wondering if anyone else has the redness and the itch. I agree also on the smell -sometimes it gets to me and I know if I can smell it so can others.

  • Jason on June 9, 2013 at 5:29 pm said:

    I have tried it for a week and had a fairly bad reaction to it. I developed a persistent rash where I applied it. Benadril and hydrocortisone creams have not helped. It may work for some but for me it had caused a major problem.

  • Bobbie Jean Gilligan on June 21, 2013 at 9:01 am said:

    If it could take up to 8 weeks to notice it’s effectiveness, then why do you only offer a 30 day money back guarantee??

  • Aretha on June 24, 2013 at 4:09 pm said:

    I don’t think most insurances will pay for it because doctors say it’s mostly cosmetic. I saw this at Walmart today for about $14.99.

  • Justin on July 8, 2013 at 3:50 pm said:

    The tag away did not work I used 10 weeks and they got red and itchy and larger a few small pieces came off in the shower but as for the tags no none has came off in ten weeks and I’m almost out of tag away waste of money made them worse really

  • kk on July 18, 2013 at 2:08 pm said:

    my smaller ones fell off after only a few days…….turned black and washed off in the shower….. working for me…have one on my stomach….and its turning red and itching….but is getting smaller…i will continue…with the product…because i saw results so quickly on my smaller tags…good luck to you all….

  • Carlos m on April 11, 2014 at 2:27 am said:

    This stuff works!!!!! I had 3 skin tags and the first one died today. I am so happy and two more to go. Wohoooo!!!! I applied it 4 times a day some days and others days 3 times. The first one took about 10 weeks that’s right 10 WEEKS!!! I hope the other two will died in two weeks. Just don’t stop using it and when you start to feel a stinging sensation that means it’s about to fall. DONT STOP TILL IT FALLS!! Thank you tag away I am very happy with the product
