It;'s courtesy of DS2, who is now nearly 2.

It;s been growing silently since that pregnancy, the fucker is HUGE now.

It;'s on my side. Big and fleshy and flappy.

I catch it on my clothes and it stops me showing off my otherwise amazeballs bikini bod in public, donchaknow.

Shall I fuck it off with the nail clippers?

If youse dare me I will do it.

You'd risk possible heavy bleeding and infection because some faceless internet people dared you to?

No, just make an appointment with you GP who will either do it for you or refer you to someone who will.

I cut mine and it was on my groin! I did it with nail scissors after a long hot soak in the bath, just do it and hold a savlon wipe to it after.

Let me know how it goes...I have one in my arm pit that pisses me off when I'm shaving!

Noooo, tie it very tightly with a piece of cotton until it shrivels and drops off! That is the correct, safe and painless way to do it ! xxxx

I'd have to namechange to tell you where mine are

No.

No, because you will bleed to death.

i did one in the crease of my elbow with nail clippers.. It was very small but it did bleed. I also tied one off with dental floss-it went purple and fell off.

landrover Sat 21-Sep-13 22:28:00

PLease everybody, cotton tie it!! xxxx

WorldPeaceAndFreeProsecco Sat 21-Sep-13 22:28:14

Dragons, did it bleed like a motherfucker? That's the only bit that worries me. If it stars vomming blood I may freak. If it's just a mini volcano then gravy.

I was a self harm pro in my twenties so this should be a doddle.

I did my own while my own nails when I was a teen!! shock was fine though but I don't want to dare you as it can be risky.

WorldPeaceAndFreeProsecco Sat 21-Sep-13 22:28:37

I tried floss, it did fuck all.

How huge is it?

landrover Sat 21-Sep-13 22:28:43

Yes sparkling, dental floss will do!

chocolatemartini Sat 21-Sep-13 22:28:48

I tied cotton around one and it went black and fell off. If you cut it I think it might bleed a lot.

TheBigJessie Sat 21-Sep-13 22:29:44

For deities' sake, no, don't just snip it off!

landrover Sat 21-Sep-13 22:29:51

Tieing it off will kill blood supply to it! no blood and NOOO pain! xxx

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 21-Sep-13 22:31:01

I have two on my armpit, they really creep me out. I'll do the dental floss thing grin

I hope it's not too minty, buuuuuurn!!

I absentmindedly picked at one of mine on my neck the other day, next thing I knew it had come off and was bleeding a fair bit. I put tcp and savlon on it, held a tissue up against it until th ebleeding had stopped (didn't take long). Now, a few days later, you can't see that it was ever there. I've got loads of the bloody things (since pregnancy), I'm going to snip them all off with nail clippers when I'm feeling brave!

landrover Sat 21-Sep-13 22:32:58

Bella, NOOOO do not cut off!!! use cotton or dental floss, tie them tight, they will lose blood supply and drop off, no pain no blood ! xxxxx

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Sat 21-Sep-13 22:33:57

You need to use dental floss of fine fishing line type thread. Tie it round VERY tightly. It will puff up, shrivel, go black and drop off. DO NOT cut it.

I have just treated a friend's mahoosive one on his neck. I tied one of my hairs around it, very tightly.

He was panicking by day 3 as it was red and angry, but it fell off on day 4.

Snipping off sounds painful!

landrover Sat 21-Sep-13 22:34:43

Well said Saggy!!! xxxxxxx
