    A dermatologist should be able to assist you with your skin issue.

      Yes, you're right Relache.
      There are home remedies for removing skin tags, which are harmless, benign tumours, but a dermatologist is the best person to go to.

    I keep seeing commercials for a remover so you might want to Google it.

    I've heard using essential oils have been known to get rid of skin tags naturally. Here's something from a fellow Hubber

    LOL....I thought everyone had them.  Everyone I know does.

    Edit:  Some have them worse than others obviously.  My cousin seems to have a lot of them on the left side of her neck where the couple I have are on my right side.

      I thought I had a mole on my neck but the more I learn about skin tags I wonder if that is what it is.

        Yes, that's why it's better to go to a dermatologist, who can identify it.
        I mean people do cut them off, or 'strangle' them, but if it's not a skin tag after all it could be dangerous.

    This site reports "More than half if not all of the general population is reported to have skin tags at some time in their lives".

    See your physician first to make sure it's just a skin tag mole and nothing else.  If it's just one or two they might just help you right there at the moment.  My husband used to have 100's, yes, yuck.  After going to a physician and them getting a few here a few there it was more economical to use oregano essential oil on my husbands skin tags.  The oregano is a very hot oil so be careful getting around the surrounding skin.  Get a cotton swab, dab some oregano oil on it, dab the swab on top of the skin tags, all over the skin tags; being careful.  We do only like 5 at a time. If you get any oregano on your surrounding skin it might feel hot and even might feel like it's burning depending to your sensitivity.  The tag will turn purple to black, swell up after a couple of days and fall off.  If the oregano oil stings, gets hot, etc., have some olive oil just incase and put it on your skin where you applied the oregano oil, this will help dilute it.  If you add water it will spread the heat of the oil, so not recommend.  My husband has used it without diluting and by diluting. Diluting is when you make a solution like 10 drops oregano and 10 drops olive oil.  When you dilute it still works just takes longer.  His skin tags have been identified as skin tags by his doctor.  It is important to know what they are.

    In the UK you just have to see an HNS dermatologist who will then confirm that it's a harmless skin tag, but will offer to refer you to the nearest minor surgeon for it to be removed if you so wish. I have one on my armpit, it appeared like a year ago and is now pretty huge! It freaked me out at first, I never even knew that they existed, I will probably pop along to my GP and get it sliced off soon - they can do minor surgery at most medium to large GPs....
