Skin tags are small, harmless growths of skin that typically occur on the neck, underarms, eyelids, and other areas where skin folds or rubs against itself. While they are generally harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern for some people, and may occasionally become irritated or inflamed.

There are several ways to remove skin tags, including:

  1. Cutting or snipping: This is a simple procedure that involves using sterile scissors or a scalpel to snip off the skin tag at the base.

  2. Freezing: This method, also known as cryotherapy, involves freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen, causing it to fall off.

  3. Burning: This method, also known as electrocautery, uses an electric current to burn off the skin tag.

  4. Tying off: This involves tying a piece of string or dental floss around the base of the skin tag to cut off its blood supply. The skin tag will eventually fall off.

It is important to note that some methods of skin tag removal, such as cutting or burning, can be painful and may cause scarring.


It is also possible for skin tags to grow back after they have been removed. Therefore, it is recommended that you consult a medical professional to discuss the best method of removal for your particular case.
