There are several ways to remove skin tags at home. The first is to tie a small piece of string, or dental floss around the base of the skin tag, then simply snip it off with scissors or nail clippers. Some have had success by using over the counter wart removal medicines. There are also those that advise covering the tag with duct tape or a band aid. Within several days you will see that the tag is getting noticeably smaller, until it dries up completely. And this is pain free!
