A lot of people have them but it isn’t talked about much. They’re called “fibromas” — also known as pedunculated warts — and are benign little tumors on your skin. They’re described as “skin tags” or tiny little flaps of skin that hang from your body.
These skin tags can form around your neck, in your armpits, behind your legs, in your groin area, or on your eyelids. They mostly develop where there is friction from skin rubbing or in creases.
Fibromas can often begin to emerge as early as puberty and the cause of their development is not yet known. Scientists suspect that a weakened immune system is to blame, but there is no proof to back up this claim.
Many people who have skin tags go to the doctor to have them removed surgically, while others give expensive lotions or ointments a try. While alcohol or peroxide have both proved to be quite effective, there is in fact one solution that is much easier to find — you may already have it at home: apple cider vinegar! The vinegar dries out the fibromas, making them turn dark and eventually causing them to fall off.
Here is how you can apply the vinegar:
Pour some apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and rub it on the fibroma. Do this two to three times a day. After daily application, the fibroma’s color will start to change. It will become darker and almost black since it is drying out. Eventually it will fall off completely. But careful! This method can only be used on fibromas found on your skin. Fibromas in your mouth or eyes require a visit to the doctor as quickly as possible.
