    Can Skin Tags be Removed at Home?

    Is it safe to do it yourself? If you have removed skin tags at home, how have you gone about getting rid of them?

    I have no medical training, but I did have a doctor tell me that the smaller tags - you can tie a thread around the base tightly. It stops the blood flow and they will die and drop off.

    You can put rubbing alcohol on them with a cotton ball, several time a day, for about a week to 10 days. They will dry up, and come off. Of course the smaller ones will be quicker.

    They have this stuff called tag-away you can get, you can also try vinegar and a band-aid you do this every night and it eventuality falls off . Now I am not a doctor, so if you try the vinegar and band-aid you need to ask your doctor what he thinks first, some people are sensitive to vinegar.

    A dermatologist told me to coat them with super glue ant they would dry up and drop off.  Haven't tried it.
