Skin Tag Update:
In a couple of cases, I have found skin tags and colon polyps were connected to heavy metals found in anti perspirant product which is aluminum compound that seems to initiate skin tag. The use of this can result in even more excessive sweat as the body tries to get rid of heavy metals. But also, if certain person takes excessive levels of potassium and lack of sodium, excessive perspire can also happen, but not as often as the body trying to rid of toxins. Skin tags disappears when heavy metals are removed from the body (not all cases) - I have as yet to prove whether it happens in a majority of cases. What I do know is aluminum is for one causing skin tags, and copper is another one, however, it i cannot exclude other metals to initiate skin tags. Therefore, metal chelators, and avoiding contaminats may help, so not just polyps but also skin tags. A heavy metal source, as I found (such as polyps) can originate from smoking cigarettes too, not just tap water. Common metal chelators I used is EDTA, cilantro, and chlorella. My favorite seems to be EDTA, but the dose I used is a lot smaller, and is dissolved in greater dilution in a liter of water, such as 100 mg per liter of drinking water, with some baking soda added too. Basically it is done mostly to remove free heavy metals I have found in my drinking water source and does remove some heavy metals from both the drinking water and what is found inside the body.
One theory as to why heavy metals causes skin tags or colon polyps is free heavy metals are free radicals and this reduces the body's immune system. Interestingly aluminum does this on two fronts, and causes blood cells to precipitate from a colloidal solution in the body too. But metals in general, once immune system is reduced, the skin tags and colon polyps are formed. Therefore, one of the possibilities is these are either fungal form or viral form, which is thought to be HSV type of virus. Interestingly HSV has a couple of major weakness, a weak potassium permanganate solution (1:10000 dilution) is one, but also, povidone iodine solution (applied 5-6 times a day), and perhaps a 20% solution of zinc acetate topical solution is one other possibilities. This is why some people report skin tag improvements with application of iodine, either lugol's solution or the povidone iodine. One of the best antiviral HSV is the iodine, but also other possibilities exist for zinc and potassium permanganate.
