  • I have them in my arm pits near the bra straps. It is a minor procedure to have them removed. You could find a female Dr. to do it if you are uncomfortable. Shave first.

  • Pull them off, it only hurts for a bit

  • The Dr just usually cuts them off no anesthesia just a little antiseptic. you could probably do this at home if you have clean instruments.

  • rubbing alchohol and sharp scissors. Cut close, but not too close---they bleed like crazy but just keep compression on it til it stops. It will scab over.
