I am using cider vinegar on anal skin tags. I have one large one, about an inch long, and several smaller ones. They are all on stalks and have been an embaressment for a few years now. I soaked cotton wool in ACV and first night slept with that attached, but the second night it hurt a bit, and the third night it hurt like hell and I had to take it off after about an hour. However, three of the smaller tags have gone a light grey and are very hard, so it is working --just depends whether I can stand the pain until they all fall off. Does anyone know whether it should hurt that much ? It is very painful- can't sit down, and can hardly stand up, have to just lean over something or lie down.
