  • Doctor will do it but if you do not have insurance it will cost $300. My husband will not do it since insurance does not cover it.It is considered cosmetic.

  • I also got skin tags while i was pregnant. I asked my doc and he said all you had to do is snip them off with teezers or something sharp. He said you would feel a "bee-like sting" but nothing more. Im freaked out by that and im happy with mine. :)
