  • You can tie a a small piece of thread tightly around it, it will die and fall off on it's own. You can snip it off with scissors, or you can actually freeze it off with Wartner.

  • You can talk to your doctor and have them remove it. I don't know of any home remedies but this procedure is quick and easy, they burn it off using a noninvasive instrument and depending on how big it is it will either fall off at burn off. Good luck.

  • like pp said it depends on how big it is...if it's big they'll numb it then cut it off but if it's small they just cut it

  • I would speak with your doctor about them. I have known some people who have had them removed only to have more pop up.

  • I have had them in the past. The dermatologist numbs the area, then snips them off. I have also had them burned off by a doctor. It is best to get rid of them, but I wouldn't try any home remedies.

  • I'd talk to a dermatologist about it. I know it's a quick/easy procedure and I'd be too worried about infection to just snip it off at home.
