I have 3 or 4 skin tags. The largest was on my neck, about the size of a BB. This is the one I tried my treatment on. If you're like me and too queasy to just cut it off, this method worked for me.....
I used a wart freezing kit that I had. Dr Scholl's Freeze Away to be exact but the brand doesn't matter. I followed the instructions for freezing a wart (they say don't use it on anything but warts). I held the cold applicator on the skin tag for 15 seconds. I repeated this 3 days later, then three days later once more for a total of 3 treatments. Each time it "burned" for about 5 minutes afterwards then bothered me no more. It took a month but it slowly dried up almost like a scab then finally one day fell off at the rub of a finger. No bleeding (I DID touch it with a styptic pencil to be sure).
I don't think I'd recommend this treatment for eyelids however.
My Derm removed a few for me by freezing them. She told me that I could remove them if I wanted to with a pair od finger nail clippers or cuticle snips.
I have removed about 7 already in the last year. They just keep popping up all over the place lately. I use to get them alot as a kid then they stopped completely but started up again about a year ago. I mostly get them on my neck and breast. Only one hurt when I snipped it. Sometimes I just pull them off it I catch them when they are little.
I thought about putting teeth numbing cream on them but there was no need to since the didn't hurt.

My OH did that with 3 skin tags on his neck and shoulder about 10 years ago. He'd had them for several years. I was a bit aghast when he did it, but to be honest it worked fine. They've never regrown and even if you look hard you can't see where they were. He said it didn't hurt snipping them, though dabbing them with surgical spirit afterwards stung a wee bit (and usually he's a bit of a wuss when it comes to pain ).
