Hi All 

I would be very grateful for any tips on getting rid of “Skin Tags”.

I’d imagine a trip to the doctor would be the best and safest....

If you don't want to do that you can buy Skin Tag removal kits....try Google, Groupon...

Failing all that ask someone with a steady hand to tie it off at the base with some cotton and after about 3 days it should die away and fall off OMG...

You can have them frozen off by a doctor - but it is extremely painful!

Another tried and tested and proved method, is use gaffer tape. Just cut enough to fully cover the tag or wort, after a few days peel off if dead will fall off if not just reapply a new bit, I have done it on. Both and works.

Depends on the size but any I get are nipped off near the skin with a pair of nail clippers.
Really accurate and you only 'think' it's going to hurt bad.
No more painful than poking your eye with a hot pin!! :-)

Seriously, it's all in the mind, very little pain.
Snip, bit of tissue, job done.
