    Partyguy,
    I use to have them and they are quite ugly. They do hurt when you remove them, but I found that instead of cutting them off just grab hold of it and pull hard and quick. I had less bleeding and alot less pain. Mine have never came back. LMG

    Ouch!!!??? I'm not sure that removing them yourself is a good idea especially if they bleed and are painful. How clean or sterile is your technique because I think you may be opening yourself up to some bigger, infection issues. Go to a dermatologist and usually the doctor can freeze them off with liquid nitrogen. Geesh, hope you don't ever have appendicitis!! chris

    LOL @ Chris,
    When I use to work in a prison the prison Doc used the same technique with the inmates. Thats where I got the idea. I'm not saying thats the right way and maybe the state didn't want to spend the money on transportation or a Dermatologist for an inmate who knows, but it worked for me and I didn't get an infection. I would suggest maybe putting some antibotic ointment on them though. LMG

    P.S. I hope I dont get appendicitis either, just in case do you know where I could get some lidocaine injections. LOL

    Pure tea tree oil is suppose to work on skin tags. It takes a bit longer to get rid of them though. I wouldn't just clip them or pull them off. The chance of an infection is high doing it that way. The doctor can freeze them off if you want them done right away. I would say use tea tree oil on smaller ones and have the doc freeze the bigger ones off.
