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!
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
Moxa Mini-Cones (Korean) for Skin Tags
Back in the early-mid 1980's, I had a skin lesion that was not responding to conventional treatment. I showed it to my Aunt and she put this “mini cigarette looking thing with a sticky cushion on one side” (I later learned it was called a mini-moxa used in Chinese medicine). She stuck it over the lesion and lit the cigarette and it burned for about 5 minutes. Stung alittle bite at the end of the burn cycle then she removed it and it left a brownish stain on my skin. A few days later, the skin lesion was gone.
Fast forward 40 years to today, I bought some mini-moxa online. I am using them for flat warts(?) I think that they are not responding to any treatment. Mini-moxa sticks contain mugwort, wormwood and sage.
A friend of mine was complaining about the skin tags he had around his neck. I looked at them and determined that the mini-moxa sticks would fit over them.
Here are the results from just one 5 minute treatment:
Day 2: Tags turned a white color.
Day 3: Tags turned black and hard.
Day 6: Tags fell off!

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!
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.

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 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.
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 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.
OTC Wart Remedies
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.
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.

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.
