Do you have skin tags?

I hate those things I have them alittle on my neck and alittle on my face. What can I do with them I just feel like rubbing my face with sandpaper to smooth them off...If only it were possible. Is there away I can dry them out?

I know I can go to a dermatologist but I am low on cash.

  • You can use sterile medical scissors (if you are not to grossed out by blood) and cut them off. I have done my husbands as well as one i had.

  • I have em on my neck. And they get caught on my necklace. That hurts like heck! I've actually taken a few off like that. My regular doctor cut one off for me too once. They bleed like crazy.

  • I read that you can tie a string around them and they'll die and fall off on their own

  • Just very sharp, sterile manicure scissors...but they do bleed like crazy if you cut into your skin and not just on the tag.
