[YEA] 07/05/2006: Olivia from Linden NJ: "After going to a dermatologist and explaining how a skin tag, which I thought was a mole, was constantly getting snatched with the seatbelt each time I buckled up.... The dermatologist told me that she would be right back, at that point her office assistant came in and explained that it would cost $75 dollars to remove that one skin tag, and that for $375 the doctor could remove all of them for me.... I gladly told them I would think about it. After some soul searching and remembering my Mom telling about the Iodine years ago.... I with the luck of fate, found this site and tried decided to give it a try. I applied the clear Iodine for a week, once in the morning and once in the evening.... I need to note that I noticed a tingle so I just keep at it and in one week my skin tag just fell off. Car rides are a dream, no more ouch.... Thanks for being here, what a wonderful resource, I will use this website and recommend it to all I know."
[NAY] 05/19/2006: Tim from Charleston, WV: "I used Iodine on a couple of small skin tags under my eyes. The Iodine seemed to work for awhile but made the tags much larger and hard. They looked terrible. I could not wait for them to fall off, so I went to the Doctor and had them removed. The Doctor informed me that the Iodine inflamed the tags and made them larger and unsightly. I would still use Iodine, but would not treat tags where they were visible."Replies
11/19/2012: Laurie from New York, Ny/usa replies: "I find it fascinating that all of the NAYS are from guys. Maybe it doesn't work on men?"
[YEA] 05/18/2006: Stephen from Houston, TX: "A skin tag had developed on the side of my neck about 2 maybe 3 years ago. It was a rather small protrusion but in the last 2 weeks I noticed that it seemed to have increased in size and I became a bit more concerned than I had been previously. I read a few testimonies your website how some people used iodine to remove moles so I thought what's the worst that could happen. I applied iodine for about 3 days and what can I say... it worked."
[YEA] 03/25/2006: Joan Marie from Shenandoah Valley Virginia: "Painted iodine cured my tag and wart. Both dried up and fell off but you must be consistent - apply 2 or more times daily for a month before giving up. Surrounding skin area can be tender, so be careful to coat just the tag or wart."
[YEA] 02/22/2006: Robin : "The skin tag was on the upper eye lid.. kinda in the fold. After reading the info I started using Lugol's iodine on the affected area. I applied Lugol's Iodine with a Q-Tip to a good sized skin tag on the upper eye lid in the fold.The tag was good sized so it took approximately two weeks before it dropped off. During the process it did sting a bit.. But it WORKED!!! Thank you Earth Clinic!"
[YEA] 01/30/2006: Dorinda from York, NY: "I used Iosol Iodine for 4 days on a skin tag and it disappeared."
[YEA] 01/18/2006: Brenda from Bear, DE: "Iodine is excellent for toenail fungus, ringworm, fever blisters, moles and skin tags, hangnails, etc. Just a few drops on a q-tip is all it takes. Use daily until the "boo-boo" is gone."
[YEA] Teresa from Lowell, North Carolina: "I had a raised mole to come up on my face and several skin tags to appear under my arm. I was embarrassed by the mole on my face, but didn't have the money to have it removed. Using a q-tip, I rubbed iodine on both the mole and skin tags at night before going to bed. Within 3 to 7 days the skin tag dried and fell off while the mole went away. I have shared this information with my sister who has removed several as well."
[NAY] Glynda from Springfield, Missouri: "I tried iodine on a mole,it dried the skin out so badly around it that it felt like scales! And the mole is still there. Is this someone's idea of a joke?!!!"Replies
06/28/2008: Lauren from Chtown, USA replies: "I just wanted to respond that iodine works on skin tags, NOT MOLES! Someone posted that they tried it on a mole-so of course it won't work! So no, it is not a joke, and and a mole is something completely different than a skin tag."
09/26/2010: Lisa from Lafayette, La replies: "Lauren, I beg to differ with you. I just noticed last night that the mole that I had been applying iodine to on my torso (side) had disappeared after using the iodine for about 2 weeks. It is gone. Gone."
01/05/2013: Glen from Derby, Ny: "I'm 50 and had a rather large skin tag on my bottom eye lid for some time which began looking like a head of cauliflower. I started juicing vegetables several weeks earlier for basic better health reasons and to my amazement the tag is complete gone. I juice carrots, apples, kale, parsley, garlic, ginger and sweet potatoes. If this is the result from juicing I can only imagine what it has done for my insides. This is the only possible reason since I have not made any other changes. Good luck to all."Replies
[YEA] 01/27/2013: Steve H from San Diego, Ca replies: "I'm 46 and I agree with Glen from NY! I saw Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and immediately started juicing on 12/22. I googled "does juicing remove skin tags" because my skin tags were gone 3 weeks later. I had skin tags on my left eyelid, my armpit, and around my neck were gone! Good job Glen! Thanks for sharing your story so I know I'm not completely crazy!!"
01/27/2013: Ed2010 from Oakville, Canada replies: "Unfortunately, the best juicer for vegetables are the masticating juicers which are expensive around $250."
[YEA] 09/29/2011: Sandra from Ottawa, Ontario: "Hello everyone! I lived in the UK for 3 years and found the best remedy for Skin Tags, Lazer Treatment. It takes 2 minutes and it falls off in a couple days. It seems we don't have this method in Canada!"Replies
[NAY] 08/04/2012: Lori from Pahoa, Hawaii replies: "The problem with laser skin tag removal is that they come back. I had mine removed 6 years ago, but after about two or three years they have grown back and now they are worse than before, That is why I am looking for another solution."
[YEA] 05/11/2010: Cori from Plainfield, Nj: "I had an annoying skin tag right near the inside corner of my eye. It was about 1/8" and I was beginning to be able to see it. I used straight lavender oil because I often use it for skin problems and I prefer the scent. It worked within a few days. Just be very careful around sensitive tissue like eyes and genitals. What a relief!"
[YEA] 07/28/2009: Kelly from Erie, PA: "I used clear nail polish on my skin tags and they dried up & fell off. Put clear nail poilish on each skin tag once or twice a day till it falls off .. could take 4-10 days depending on the size of the tag, but it really works!"Replies
10/19/2012: Ashely from Toronto, Ontario replies: "Does the nail polish method leave a mark after it falls off?"
11/03/2012: Trinity from Toronto, Ontario replies: "Hello, if I use the nail polish method, will it leave a mark, even after the skin tag has fallen off?"
[YEA] 06/10/2009: Gojan from Phoenix, AZ: "Putting nail polish on a skin tag will kill it in a few days. Make sure you get it around the neck of the tag so it hardens and chokes it off. If the color of the polish bothers you, put a band aid on it or make up a good story."Replies
08/25/2009: Umm from Madina, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia replies: "please did you remove the dried layer before the next application or you just kept putting it on it? also, is it normal for it to sting for some minutes?"
09/07/2009: Kelly from Erie, Pa replies: "You can either remove the dried nail polish or apply it right over it if it's still mostly stuck on there. Yes, it normally feels tingly after you put it on .."
06/22/2012: Tatyana from Cordova, Tn replies: "I used clear nail polish on 3 skin tags that I have had for several years. 1 was tiny, one a little bigger and the third was the biggest, but still pretty small, The strange thing is that the 1st and the 3rd (the biggest one) fell off within 3 day, but the middle one is being stubborn and won't budge. Wondering why, ideas?"
08/12/2012: Malimali from Cairo, Egypt replies: "If it is around your private area you should go to doctor but I'm not sure if you can do that as a female in Saudi Arabia?"
