Hopefully that link works and doesn't violate any rules. It is posted purely for the excellent pictures in differentiating skin tags from hemmies, etc.
I have skin tags in my groin area, and a couple around scar tissue close to my anus. I had them verified by my doctor, and then I removed the ones I could see myself with a sterilized pair of nail clippers and some antibiotic ointment. I'm sure this isn't the doctor recommended route, but it seems to work fine and it is in my budget. The only tricky part is that I can't see all of the stupid little skin tags well enough to clip them, so some of them are allowed to live. There's just a minor pinch of pain involved, and they only bleed for about
10 minutes. I do NOT, obviously, do this with anything other than verified skin tags.
Hope this helps.
