It would hurt and bleed alot. Tie a piece of dental floss around it real tight and tighten every day until it falls off:grin:

You can buy a scalple at a medical supply store, start witha very small one first, it will bleed but with a bit of presure it'll stop.

The method mentioned above will work too, also I'm pretty sure you can freeze them off or use a compond "W" type treatment. I've done the scalple treatment on a GF and had no problem.

You can liquid nitrogen kits at the drugstore. The kind for warts. Same principal. Guy at work doing DSC tests all night in the lab used liquid N2 and Qtip to get rid of his.

Using clippers did you end up with a stump much like cutting down a tree

toe nail clippers, just do it, feels like a little prick from a needle, one tip pull it out so you can get as close to the skin as you can. No big deal.

Where is the skin tag? Not that I really want to know...But if its in an area that rubs like the armpit or crotch its gonna take forever to heal and can be a real nuisance. I had a tag removed once by a doctor and it actually took a stitch to keep it from reopening.

Garett -- last year I was at the dermatologist, mentioned I had a skin tag and asked if she could remove it. "Sure." She stretched it out with tweeters and snipped it off with little scissors, put a band aid on it and said "surgery, $150-bucks."

I've done it, no problem. Hold an ice cube on it for a bit, and snip it off with new, sharp clippers. Put a dab of neosporin on it and a band aid.

I trim them all off w/ fingernail clippers. I had one on my eye lid that hurt like hell, the other ones hurt for about a minute and were fine after that.

I have cut about 10 of them off w/ fingernail clippers and once the pain goes away everything is fine. A buddy of mine has them cut off by a Dermatologist and pays like $80 everytime.

I've only had one and didn't know what it was. It was small, "hidden" and no one would have normally seen it, but curiosity got the better of me. I figured it was some kind of cyst or something with a ''root", so I pulled it off with my Leatherman pliers. THAT was not the right way to do it! :o Dang thing didn't stop bleeding for days and yes it hurt like heck when I did it.

My ex had several done at once by a dermatologist that did the freezing thing and she said it was no big deal and she'd a pain wuss. He also was checking some skin for cancer and did some tests. I don't know if the tests included the tags.

The dental floss route or if your wife has longish strong hair tie that around it. Cut off the blood flow and it will die and fall off. Cutting it off could lead to another forming down the road whereas the choking bloodflow method will stop it from coming back. I've had a few and cutting it off they always came back. Not anymore.

Nothing to it. Use sharp clippers and snip away. Have used a single edged razor blade. That cuts quick and it's done. Bleds a little and and then stops. Trimmed them in armpit and other sensitive areas. Can't even find where I've done them. Damn simple.

Cutaneous skin tag

A cutaneous skin tag is a common skin growth that is usually harmless (benign).

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

A cutaneous tag usually occurs in older adults. They are more common in people who are overweight or who have diabetes. They are thought to occur from skin rubbing against skin.

Symptoms

The tag sticks out of the skin and may have a short, narrow stalk connecting it to the surface of the skin. It is usually small, but may be a half-inch long. The tag is usually the same color as skin, or a little darker.

It is usually painless and does not grow or change. However, it may be irritated from rubbing by clothing or other materials.

A skin tag may occur on the
Neck
Underarms
Middle of the body, or under folds of skin
Eyelids
Other body areas

Signs and tests

Your doctor can diagnose this condition by looking at your skin. Sometimes, a skin biopsy is done.

Treatment

Treatment is usually not needed. Your doctor may recommend treatment if the skin tag is irritating, or you don't like how it looks. Treatment may include:

Surgery to remove it

Freezing it (cryotherapy)

Burning it off (cauterization)

Expectations (prognosis)

A skin tag is usually harmless. It may become irritated if clothing rubs against it. The growth usually does not grow back after it is removed. However, new skin tags may form on other parts of the body.


Calling your health care provider

Call your doctor or nurse if the skin tag changes, or if you want it removed. Do not cut it yourself, because it can bleed a lot.

Im a cuticle nipper cutter. They must be new and sterile, one snip and its done. I peroxide after wards and cover with bandaid.

I recently removed 2 from my left arm, both were appx. the same size and depth. Out of curiousity I performed a test, one had a bandaid with neosporin applied everyday, the other, just a bandaid. The areas were cleaned with peroxide and dressings changed every day. The one with the neosporin took almost 3 weeks to heal, the one with just a clean bandaid, about 4-5 days. Id say Im 6-8 weeks "post op" and neither one has left a visable scar or blemish.

Just got home from the dermatologist. Had three suspicious areas biopsied for cancer testing...which I'm pissed about because a few years ago I had a different doctor check the one spot on my chest. She said it looks okay, took a photo & measured to compare the following year. Following year, went back, it was the same, so she said, see you in a year.

Didn't make it back for a couple years. Went to this different doc, out of NC. He was pretty concerned about the area on my chest, AND two more spots on my back, that she had previously commented on, made no effort to follow up or check for cancer. This doc seems pretty worried that it IS trouble. I hope to hell not.

Anyway, he also checked (at my request) skin tags under both arms & one on my waist. Under arms he said is from...AGE! Around the waist, he removed it & is sending it off to be tested as well. It was HUGE compared to all the others...like seven to eight times larger. Plus, it hurt a little. Anyway, that's what I found out.
