DOES ANYONE KNOW A HOME REMEDY FOR SKIN TAGS AND MOLES?

OR ANYTHING I CAN BUY TO GET RID OF THEM? I'M NOT GOING TO THE DR. TO GET THEM CUT OFF.WAY TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU GET LEFT WITH SCARS.

  • I had some small ones on my neck, I thought they were tiny raised moles, but in the end I think they were skin tags. (I never went to the doctor for them) Instead, I took some fingernail clippers, sanitized them in some rubbing alcohol and clipped them off myself. I think it was about 4 of them. A couple of them honestly didn't even hurt....but there were a couple where it felt like a small stinging pinch and then it was gone, those ones bled a little bit, but now they're all gone and you can't even tell I had them.

  • Well in the nursing homes, us nurses would take thread and tie it around a skin tag to cut off blood flow. In a few days the skin tag would fall off. No bleeding involved. I am not sure you would want to do this on your neck or face though, lol.

  • What about a little one on your eyelid - how would you get that one off?

  • I have not tried this yet, but am going to. This was in Dr. Gott's Medical column. Apply fingernail polish daily until the tag falls off.
