One of its uses is the removal of skin tags due to its high acidity. Don’t use ACV to remove skin tags around the eyelids, as it can harm the eyes.

Place the cotton ball with the ACV on the skin tag holding it with a bandage and leave in place for up to 15 minutes. Do it 3 times a day for several days or even a week or more if needed until the skin darkens, dries and falls off.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Warts Removal A similar way is used to remove warts. Warts are caused by viruses, especially HPV type that causes an infection. The virus causes the top layer of the skin to grow too fast, and the result is a small solid growth with a rough surface that typically appears on the hands or feet. Warts are more likely to develop on broken skin, as the virus can enter the top layer of the skin through scratches or cuts. If you are not sure and wonder whether it may be something else, go and see your to have it checked. The virus that causes warts can be passed on by skintoskin contact or through contact with towels or shoes, and can be spread to other body parts. This is why it is best to treat warts as soon as they appear.
You can use overthecounter products to treat warts, or visit a dermatologist that can perform wart treatment and removal techniques that are stronger and usually faster than the commercially available products. But you can also easily and safely use ACV. How to Remove Warts Using ACV Gently clean the wart and the area around the wart. Take a small cotton ball that will cover the wart, and soak it in ACV. Secure with a band aid overnight. Change the cotton ball daily and keep it on every night. After one week, the wart will start to peel off until it is completely removed.
You may want to continue this treatment for another few days after the wart has been removed just to make sure it doesn’t return.
