  • I developed many skin tags while pregnant....most of them fell off after having my baby. There was one on my neck that REALLY hurt at one time...I put a bandaid on it and that helps ALOT. It eventually fell off too!

  • I can't stand them and usually take them off with some nail clippers lol. But my mom did that once and it bled for like 3 days, so you really shouldn't. A bandaid will help, and then your doctor can freeze or burn it off just like a wart. It doesn't even hurt.

  • Do NOT clip them wth nail clippers, it will more than likely bleed badly and could possibly even scar.
