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.

NHS website says you can snip the small ones here

Yay, my home surgery has been endorsed by the NHS. Where do I sign up for my Doctors badge?

On a side note am I the only one that thinks 5cm in size is not a tag but a label. Seriously they can grow up to 5cms! That's half the length of a pencil case ruler!

Sparkling that is EPIC!

Skin labels. You could write your phone number on it in case you get found in the street. shock

sparklingbrook that is exactly how I'd describe it..strangely compelling!

It was quite satisfying when it came out... I couldn't stop watching! shock

A bit late to the thread but I get skin tags around my eyelash line and I just use my tweezer to yank them off while holding my eyelid still blush

Oh my this brings back awful, awful memories. I had one on the back of my leg and I tried tring thread round it etc but the bloody thing wouldn't move. So i tried to snip it off with the nail clippers. Only it was gristly and bled and bled and sort of hung off. It makes me feel sick even thinking about it. Anyway I ended up at the GP after lying and saying i caught it with a loofah and he told me it wasn't a skin tag but a verucca and I needed it numbing, him cutting it out and stitching. So please don't do your own minor surgery grin

You had a verruca on your leg? Blimey I didn't know they could appear anywhere other than feet.

I want a skin tag or assortment of carbuncles so I can snip them off and see what happens <masochist>

re moles... beware, i had one on my cheek and rubbed at it to try and remove it, it scabbed over and I thought it would just drop off but a whole new entity arrived in its place, a big soft red mole that whenever it was touched bled and bled.... literally dripped with blood. looked awful had to go for surgery to get it cut out and now have a big scar. they are basically a collection of blood vessels under the skin so do please leave em alone.

I meant red moles blush or cherry angiomas to give them their proper name.

Just finished reading this whole thread - thanks ladies, bloody hilarious!!!

I feel compelled to tell you that I have voluntarily watched that video before. More than once. blush

Also, I have loads of skin tags, and have learnt a lot from this thread. So thanks.

<fecking skin tags>

I had rhe same thing as Cherry as a child. It was on my leg. The hospital put the dear of GOD up my mother. They told her it might be a melanoma. That they would need to do extensive surgery, remaove lots of flesh. She spent several weeks worrying I would lose my leg.
NEVER mess with moles.
