Skin Tags

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used Cider Vinegar to remove skin tags? I bought a bottle of Dermaxx, which is supposed to remove the tags, but after using it for almost 3 weeks, nothing at all is happening. I read somewhere that cider vinegar works well.

I went to my skin clinic via my doc, I had several removed, 2 without local anaesthetic (he had missed them with needle), out in a few minutes , relatively pain free, that was 6 years ago & none have returned.

Tie some fine thread tightly around it, nips to begin but they soon fall off ;-)

I have always done my own by tying some cotton around them , two or three days and they dry out and drop off .

True story…i had a lump on the old gonads….and like most men, you try to wish it away…after 6 weeks, i just knew i had to sort it..so off to the doctors…you know that feeling when your in the waiting room…all of a sudden,this stunning mid 30s beautiful woman called my name….OMG..is this my new doctor...

anyway..it didn't take long for her to get my Gonads on display….it felt like ages when she started to prod and have a good feel…..i would have paid for this lol

 

anyway..she said it was a tag…3 weeks later..it vanished

+1..............also slide a strong paperclip on to it...then cover with a plaster for a day or so.......it will go blue then black ...take off the clip when it goes blue and in 2-3 days it will fall off.............taken no end off dogs with cotton....

Sod the home remedies, I have had a few removed also including one near the old fella which was embarrassing, the last two where burnt off, all at the Doc's.

 

My supervisor removed one with a pair of side cuts, loads of pain and blood he said never again :lol:

I got a couple under my arm and keep meaning to get them removed. Might try the cotton trick. Mrs is a nurse so will get her on it.

I have had a few small ones, just nip them off with nail clippers and good plaster !

I have one on my inner thigh. It started bleeding so I used a nail clippers to cut it off. Just a little bit of blood. But, it's grown again!

 

I'm going to give the cider vinegar a go, and see how that works.

So what are your "new" gonads like, I wasn't aware you could get new ones. A spare pair would be good though for back up just in case. :yes:

Good job this is not the Middle Ages - the believe then was that a skin tag was the mark that remained as evidence that you had supped with the Devil :devil: . The Witch hunters would have had some fun with you lot (and me come to that). :lol:

I had the same thing, (well almost) playing 5 a side football I took a direct hit, I felt sick instantly and it was like that for 24 hours so thought I need to go to the doctors, so my name gets called out and in I go... Well she was stunning!!! And I was embarrassed this was about 12 months ago😳

Have had a couple removed in the past by the practice nurse at local Dr's

Normally they've been dabbed with liquid nitrogen which effectively freeze dries it and they drop off in a couple of days.

I've given up on the Dermaxx, and now I'm trying cider vinegar. Reading reports, it's supposed to work, but then so was the Dermaxx. I could snip them off, but this doesn't stop them regrowing. At least the cider vinegar only cost me 59p, against £9.99 for the Dermaxx.

This cider vinegar doesn't seem to be working yet for me. Any idea how much of it you have to drink before it kicks in?

 

Had some burnt off at the docs some years back. Stung like a bitch tbh. My advice is to have them all done at once as you won't go back.

After about 10 pints, you won't give a toss about the skin tags! :)

I had one surgically removed from my left eyelid when It began to interrupt my field of vision.

 

It`s the sort of job that they give to the newbie doctor to perform.

 

Watching the anasthetic needle wobbling towards my eyeball in the shaky hand of a trainee doctor was slightly unnerving.

 

He managed to get the pain killer in without stabbing me in the eyeball but the sight of a sharp metal scalpel advancing very shakily prompted me to take him gently by the wrist and suggest that he take a quick walk around the room with a few deep breaths and then try again. This time his hand had stopped trembling and he made a quick and confident slice with the knife.

 

The only complaint that I had was that for the next week my eye looked like it had been punched by a heavy weight boxer and went through a rainbow of different colours.

I had one removed on my back at the doctors and removed 7 myself. The first time I was picking away at it and once you break the skin I kept picking and managed to remove it. I did the same with the following 6 down my left side of my chest/ribs.

 

I'm not advising people to do it as I was told not to but it worked for me. Now skin tag free

i've cut a few off with nail clippers, stings a bit but not for long, still got a few to cut off when they get a bit bigger, i have tried the tying cotton around them too with success but it takes time , i am sure i read somewhere that they grow back anyway.
