[YEA] I used Iosol Iodine for 4 days on a skin tag and it disappeared.
[YEA] 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] 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] 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?!!!

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.

[YEA] 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!

[YEA] 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] 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!

[YEA] 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.

[YEA] I have several tiny skin tags around my neck/collar area. One was getting very irritated from my shirt. A friend told me about oil of oregano for these. I started applying to the skin tags twice a day(morning and evening). I applied one drop to each tag with my finger. In eight days, the tags were gone. Talk about saving time and money.

[YEA] I have a few flat, mole-like skin tags that I have had for years, but I recently developed one not quite under my arm that had a stalk and was tender to touch. I applied oil of oregano a couple times a day, alternating with tea tree oil whenever I thought about it.
It's been maybe two weeks, and I just noticed the thing is gone! I can't even tell where it was. I'm going to try it on the larger ones. I wouldn't try this for anything around the eye. I hadn't seen anyone mention oil of oregano, but since it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, as does the tea tree oil, I figured the two together couldn't miss.
[YEA] I took the advice I found on this site, and bought Wart Off for my skin tags on my neck. With in days they fell off and were gone. Cheaper then what I had paid ny doctor to due it in the past.
[YEA] I have removed a eraser sized black Mole with Wart freeze after 3 applications also works on Skin tags. No Blood it will fall off. works great no scars where tags were.
[YEA] Great site, love all the remedies. Salicylic Acid helps remove skin tags! Ok I have been using salicylic acid on partner's skin tags, applied once daily (bedtime) for almost 1 week, most darkend in color and look like they will fall of any day now. He said it stings a little but for a minute or two.

[YEA] I developed skin tags in my armpits some 20 years ago (gawd) and they have always been a source of embarrassment for me. I would say 10-15 on each side; not big and they didn't bother me at all. Actually, I had (hee hee) one big one on each side - big as in 1cm long and thin.
Also, I have (sorry, had :)) one medium one and about 4-6 small ones on my neck.
Anyway, as you might imagine I hated them. I am just remembering now that when I was 29 I went to the GP (Family Doctor) and he pulled a face and said that there were "too many" to do anything with (he should be struck-off - he really failed me; I wonder how many other people he has really failed also. All while taking a big fat salary and pension). If I was embarressed before, I was now mortified... I have been meaning to do something... But what. I have been so busy and they weren't bugging me (until my sister... SISTERS! ... Said on holiday once, in a very loud voice "Ughhhhh... what are those").
Over the years I have tried all sorts - alcohol, Tee Tree Oil, lots. Anyway last week I came across this site (magic! ) and I decided to try the iodine - I had some in the cupboard (I put it on the kids for any scrape / cut). Two days of hiding in my bedroom slathered in iodine... Go on, it is funny (the family were off seeing relatives). They did look a bit bothered, but not anywhere near bothered enough for my liking. Iodine on my shirt, on the floor, pyjamas and the towel... ughhh.
Now, I don't have heaps of time to spend on this. I want them gone, but I can't sit around for hours slathered in this and that; I have kids and a job and a wife etc etc. So, I spied those scissors in a pot in the bathroom... Hmmmmm... These little fellers have bothered me too long. I decided to cut off one of the big boys (1cm, not really big) and see about the pain / blood. I rubbed iodine into the scissors (I am sure that there are better ways - boiling / alcohol, but I was on a roll and there was to be no stopping me) and into/around the skin tag.
'Snip', almost no pain ( not even a pinch's worth) and almost no blood. I put a plaster on it and the.... The mad glint in my eye... this was good, really good (should have done it years ago - silly me).
I snipped all the ones on my neck off (fabidoodah). Yes, a little bit of blood - much less than a cut finger. Probably all amounted to 2 drops. Slapped plasters on. There was one that was half mole and half skin tag... you got it, that came off too (not the mole bit).
Actually, I should have gotten better scissors - I do have some, it's a question of finding them. I had to 'trim' a couple of them back a couple of times to get the whole tag off. And one was a bit tough and needed to be snipped by the sharper bit of the scissor blade. Afterwards I trimmed a bit of my hair... I only mention this (as I had evidently gone mad - joking) as it became about the same level of 'intervention', if you like.
This all happened 10 minutes ago and I am now sitting here with about 10 plasters on and happy, happy, happy.
This is phase 1. The underarmers (phase 2) will go either with scissors (which I am really happy with) or with string (which I am intrigued by).
The big thing is though, I am back in control. And it feels good.
Thank you Earth Clinic - I clearly needed some encouragement.
One last bit of advice - I am an expert now, remember. It would be easier if you could get someone else to do the snipping... I didn't as I am too embarrassed about them and the moment of their demise came and I had to do it then!
Anyway, don't wait - Go for it NOW and in 10 minutes you will be sitting there with a few plasters on and the hugest smile.
