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.

The nipple one has made me wince and my knuckles contract.

numb it with an ice pack (I used one from the kids pack lunches), have a couple of alcoholic drinks and then get your other half (if you have one) to hack it off with nail clippers or scissors (we used hairdressing scissors). Have a dressing or lots of tissues on stand by to mop up the blood. If it is a big fat one then tie floss round the base of it for a couple of days beforehand.

We are at completely the opposite ends of the spectrum.

Me - yeah, go on, give it a go. It's only a bit of blood
Reeling - you will DIE I tell you

Shall I burn it with a lighter?

LeGavrOrf Sat 21-Sep-13 22:51:58

reelingintheyears Sat 21-Sep-13 22:52:24

Yeh, gwan, burn it off wih a lighter shock

LeGavrOrf Sat 21-Sep-13 22:52:24

p.s. I tried to go to the GP but they dont treat them any more as they are seen as cosmetic

I suffer from these blighters permanently... I name changed cus some of them really are gross.

Once had one down below and it got majassive (like a 2 inch fat dangly bit tmi blush... Went to see a gynaecologist who said age would cauterise it, had to be booked in to feckin theatre and everything. Totally mortifying.... Then worst hit was they injected local anaesthetic before they did it. Sweet mother of God I nearly hit the roof at that. It was way sorer than if they had just snipped it off.

Anyway I digress... If they get long under my armpits or around bra line I find they get all red and sore and with the rubbing of a bra come off themselves. Or if not, once long enough give them a twist one way round and round then the other. It's like tying them. A few days of that and they will fall off.

Good luck... I'm running away to nc back!!!

Tie the fucker off with fishing thread, don't cut it with scissors you twat, you have no idea how deep rooted it might be.

No one warned me that nipple accoutrements would be a side affect of pregnancy. DD gave me hairy ones and DS gave me taggy ones.

WorldPeaceAndFreeProsecco Sat 21-Sep-13 22:54:03


What fresh hell?


LeGavrOrf Sat 21-Sep-13 22:54:12


I will come armed with silver nitrate sticks, tequila, tramadol and a bag of maltesers,

WorldPeaceAndFreeProsecco Sat 21-Sep-13 22:54:51

I have three children.

Hairly nips, hairy tummy and fucking skin tags. Bastard children.

Jolleigh Sat 21-Sep-13 22:54:57

Not sure about the people saying you'd bleed to death hmm

Are people under the impression blood doesn't clot normally if it exits through a snipped off skin tag wound?

landrover Sat 21-Sep-13 22:55:00

REPEAT AFTER ME!!!!!!!!!!! Tie them off please!! smile

LeGavrOrf Sat 21-Sep-13 22:55:47
