What exactly are Skin Tags?
Some people may be unsure whether they have a skin tag or not, but it is actually fairly easy to spot them, especially when they are causing you a lot of pain. They are small, wart-like, growths that can suddenly appear on your body and they are usually either brown or cream in colour, protruding a few millimetres above the surface of your skin.
Most of the time skin tags appear on damp or wet parts of your body, such as the underside to your knee, under your armpits, or around the pubic area, and this is mainly because of the sweat and water that build up there over a long period of time.
What Makes a Skin Tag Bleed?
Most of the time, skin tags themselves are completely painless and are more of annoying than painful, however, if you don’t look after them properly they can quickly become painful, and even bleed.
There are a number of reasons for your skin tag becoming painful or bleeding, for example, you may accidentally cut one while shaving, or even tear one while getting changed.
Whatever the reason for your bleeding, it can hurt a lot and, if it goes unattended, it can even pose more serious health risks. Trying to prevent future cases of skin tag bleeding is very important and, if you get ahead of the game now, there will be fewer issues down the road.
Because skin tag bleeding is mainly caused by irritation, by far the best way to prevent more skin tag bleeding is to make sure that any skin tags you may have are covered in loose, comfortable clothes that don’t excessively rub the area. Not only will this prevent current skin tags from cutting and bleeding, but it will also help to prevent the growth of more skin tags, as it will help to keep your skin nice and dry.

So, how can you treat Skin Tag Bleeding?
When it comes to actually treating bleeding skin tags, there are a few routes you can go down, however, there are only two that we would fully recommend, after seeing great results from them ourselves. The healthcare market is flooded with thousands upon thousands of products, many of which are useless and even harmless, which is why it is incredibly important that you heed the advice of people who have previously tried the products, so here is ours:
Use of Tea Tree Oils
If you are looking for a soothing and natural way of removing your bleeding skin tags, then Tea Tree oil is certainly the way to go! At first, you probably wouldn’t even imagine that using Tea Tree Oil would be an effective way to stop skin tag bleeding, yet it works fantastically.
The oil works by dehydrating the tag and surrounding skin, as well as cutting off the blood supply, which it is able to do because of the antibacterial elements in it. This causes the skin tag to painlessly drop off, stopping any pain you may have been feeling.
Not only does the Tea Tree Oil efficiently remove the bleeding skin tag, but it also helps to restore the surrounding skin to its previous state, with the help of its various anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
The fact that Tea Tree Oil not only removes the painful skin tags but also helps to repair the skin underneath is what makes this such a useful product, and one that we would highly recommend.
Use of a Skin Tag Remover Device
Now, although Tea Tree Oil does have many helpful benefits, some people want to remove their skin tags in a much faster manner and, if you fall into that category, then using a remover device is probably the route you want to go down.
Products such as the Micro TagBand, which is our favourite removal device, work by completely blocking off the tag’s blood supply, causing it to fall off within a matter of days, which is much quicker than other solutions, such as Tea Tree Oil.
Removal devices, like the Micro TagBand , tie small elastic bands around the bleeding tag, which is how they manage to cut off the blood. This method for treating skin tag bleeding yields consistent and rapid results, which is incredibly important if you have a particularly painful skin tag.
Overall, using a skin tag removal device has a lot of great benefits, such as the fact that results are visible within a few days, making this the fastest-acting solution on the market for sure!
We strongly recommend that you try your hardest to prevent your skin tags from ever becoming painful or bleeding, but if it has already got to that stage, then you should see some amazing results with the removal methods we mentioned above. Hopefully, you will have learned more about skin tags, why they bleed, how to prevent them bleeding, as well as how to safely remove them.
