  • I had some in my armpits and one on my leg. I cut them off with cuticle scissors. They bleed a little bit, and it hurts a little. But they do eventually come back for most people.

  • I'm not real sure about skin tags on your face, but on other areas of the body you can actually just freeze them off with any wart remover product. I use Wartner. I buy it at Walmart. After going to the dermatologist to have this done once, I knew there had to be a cheaper way. I did some research on the internet last summer and found someone who referred me to Wartner. It's a freeze method, you just simply apply it for a few seconds (enough to freeze the skin tag or wart) and viola! I've used it several times on skin tags and it works like a charm. I don't think I would do it on the face though.

    You can also just tie a thread around it tightly until it falls off.

  • If it's flat it's NOT a skin tag! If it's brown, slightly raised but flat, it's more likely a mole. Your best bet is to see the dermatologist to determine what you have and the best way to proceed. If it's just developed recently, you could be dealing with melanoma, a form of skin cancer.

  • DERMATOLOGIST!!!! Pleas don't cut them off, you don't know what you are dealing with, and even if it is just a skin tag, it's on your face, don't risk scarring.
