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.

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!!

Unfortunately, the best juicer for vegetables are the masticating juicers which are expensive around $250.

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!

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.

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!

For skin tags, use Lavender 100% essential oil or 100% garlic oil. The skin tags have roots, feeding off of your capillary blood. These oils kill the roots. Garlic is stronger then Lavender both they both work. Google : what essentials oils remove skin tags?

Lugol's iodine is great for skin tags. I had 5 pop up after going out in the sun getting some vit d top up. I recently purchased a 1940s violet ray tesla device and it had a little glass wand so I gave them all a dose of nikola tesla electricity they changed colour I then finished off with a dab of lugol's on each one. lugols will work alone but you have to dab on 4 times a day. the violet ray just speeds things along violet ray device can be used for many different ailments

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!

Hello, if I use the nail polish method, will it leave a mark, even after the skin tag has fallen off?

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.

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?

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 ..

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?

Essential Oils can remove skin tags in no time. Best results I have had are with undiluted organic essential Oregano Oil, dab on tag only trying not to get on healthy tissue twice a day. Tags will turn black and fall off within a week to 10 days. Some people's bodies do not react well to Oregano oil, then I suggest Lemon Oil but it takes 5 weeks sometimes for the skin tags to fall off.

I would like to ask for info on removing flat skin tags, the ones that can't be tied off. The tag is nearly 1/4" across and almost the shape of a circle. Unfortunately the tag is on a very obvious place on my face. I have oregano oil on hand that I have been applying for two days. I am wondering if it would be more effective to peel back the top layer of skin so that the oregano oil can soak in faster. I'd appreciate some feedback about this. Thank you!

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.

Maybe I should try that, as I've used frankincense and some have gone but not all.

Warning

Make sure your oil of oregano is diluted to about 10%. Straight oil of oregano will cause severe chemical burns.

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.

I am having a hard time getting rid of a skin tag that is on my eye lid. It is directly on top of my lower eye lashes. I do not want to go to the eye doctor and have them cut it out, (which is what they want to do). I have been using rubbing alcohol on it for a couple days and it has shrunk. I am fearful of freezing it and cutting it just because it's so close to my eye. Any other suggestions on what I can do?

In the picture, it appears that one is already turning black, the other one is slowly getting there.

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.

where can you buy salicylic acid?? I've looked for years and can't find any over-the-counter.

EC: Aspirin perhaps? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_aspirin

If you put an aspirin in water to dissolve and place it on tag will that help remove it?

I bought a solution of high %-age salicylic acid from "Sally's" (Beauty Supply) for callouses on my feet. So try looking in the foot/beauty section of your local pharmacy or supercenter. Decided to use it today to see if it would do anything for my tag. Going to try it for a couple days twice a day and report back just for the sake of this remedy. If it doesn't work - because it burns like fire due to the 'delicate' nature of my tag - I'm going to try iodine and/or AC vinegar and/or tea tree oil - all of which I have on hand already.

LOVE this site! Will report my results.

Salicylic Acid is used as a treatment for Plantar Warts and can be purchased at the local pharmacy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Salicylic acid - The treatment of warts by keratolysis involves the peeling away of dead surface skin cells with Keratolytic chemicals such as salicylic acid or trichloroacetic acid. These are available in over-the-counter products or, in higher concentrations, may need to be prescribed in a by a physician.

Safety warning:Topically, as a beta-hydroxy acid (and unlike alpha-hydroxy acids) salicylic acid is capable of penetrating and breaking-down fats and lipids, making it capable of causing moderate chemical burns of the skin if at very high concentrations (such as near or actually the majority ingredient) within a solvent. It is capable of damaging the lining of pores in such cases if the solvent is alcohol, acetone, or an oil. Over-the-counter limits are set at 2% for topical left on the face and 3% for those expected to be washed off, such as acne cleansers or shampoo. Caution should be exercised when handling large volumes of salicylic acid, and protective gloves are recommended for any repeat, prolonged exposure. 17% salicylic acid, which is often sold for wart removal, should not be applied to the face and should not be used for acne treatment. Even for wart removal, such a solution should only be applied twice a day.
