Does Wart Remover remove Skin tags

How Does Apple Cider Vinegar Skin Tag Removal Work? | BeHealthy24

I have a big skin tag. It bothers me. Some websites say to get rid of it by putting fingernail polish on it, tying a thread around it, or using over-the-counter wart freeze. Should I try that or go to a doctor? And if a doctor does it, what's involved and will it hurt?

Skin tags (those soft, fleshy bumps that grow from the skin on a narrow stalk) are harmless. They don't need to be removed. But sometimes a skin tag can get big enough to bother a person, like by rubbing against clothing. If a skin tag is annoying and you want to get rid of it, see your doctor.

Don't try removing a skin tag on your own, particularly if it's large. Skin tags have blood vessels so they will bleed and could become infected if a person uses non-sterile equipment to remove them. Fingernail polish and wart remover are designed for use on hard skin, like nails or warts. They're not the kinds of things to use on a skin tag.

To avoid infection, scarring, and unnecessary pain, see your family doctor or a dermatologist. He or she can remove skin tags quickly and with very little discomfort right in the office. Your doctor might snip the tag off with sharp, sterile scissors or freeze or burn it with a special solution. If the tag is small enough, you'll feel no more than a pinprick. If it's larger, the doc will rub a numbing medication on your skin so you don't feel it.

Skin tags often develop when we're kids. Occasionally they go away on their own. But more often a skin tag will stay on the skin and it may grow slowly over time.

Skin tag cure for dogs: salicylic acid?

A pea size skin tag disappeared on the chest (breastbone area) of our 9 year old yorkie after a few did a larger subcutaneous bump nearby.
Recently spotted a bleeding tag on her neck, so she must have scratched or it was irritated curing brushing - before it was discovered. Vet was not concerned when examining it.
Anyway, some articles have suggested Vitamin E or Castor Oil. I was thinking about the same treatment I used for a face wart with good results - 2% salicylic acid from Walmart. It dried up the mole in a week with daily applications. ANY THOUGHTS?
