    Hi there are several ways you can remove them yourself.  You can take dental floss and tie it around the skin tag. Tie it fairly tight.( it cuts off the blood suppy)  It will eventually dry up and fall off.  Or you can put wart remover( I believe the freezone type) on it and it will eventually fall off. I have also heard if you can put duck tape on it(if you can it the area it is in) then leave it on for a while this will help it dry up and fall off.  i worried about this one because eventually you would have to pull the tape off.OUCH  If you try any of these don't worry if they skin tag turns black.  It will do that as it dies.  Or you can go to the doctor and have them cut it off quickly or some doctors freeze it off like the wart remover.  Hope this helps.

    You can apply tea tree oil directly to them. I've read it works well, though not immediate.

      I had heard that also but also heard it can sting pretty good. And that it should be applied only to the spot and no surrounding areas of skin.
