There is no shortage of different ways to remove skin tags at home but i would like some personal stories about what worked for you and what didn't.

doctor tried dry ice weeks ago but all that did was burn the hell out of surrounding tender skin. I won't be going back to her and I don't want to go to dermatologist since I have so many I would like to remove.

Alcohol, swab it, scissors, cut it off, swab it.

Tied it off with dental floss. Turned black and fell off. I've also pinched it enough so that it cut off the blood supply to the tag, in which it turned black and fell off. Same strategy, two ways to accomplish it!

The doctor was not skilful enough. I had my warts removed by burning, and had no issue. And healing was fast.
I have tried Revitol Skin Tag Remover for my skin tags and had no problems.

My derm just snipped them, one had to be cauterized as it was big. I couldn't reach some of them to DIY.

Alcohol until they dried out and fell off. This method is not working for DH, though, so he may have to try one of the above mentioned

Home remedies are considered to be the best for skin tag removal. Some of them are:-
1. Tea tree oil
2. Apple cider vinegar

I have removed several skin tags and growths by using Aztec Healing clay. Mix with apple cider vinegar and apply a thick paste and leave overnight. Do this for several nights and they usually start to crust and then you can peel them off. Large ones may bleed, but keep applying the healing clay and they heal. I cannot believe how many large ones I removed in this manner.

Some do have to be removed by the derm, and I have had no problems. They either scrape or freeze, depending on the specific type of growth being removed.

Once went to a dermo and told him I had some things for him to remove. He said he would tell me what he would remove. LOL
