DIY skin tag removal

Has anyone attempted this? I have a really flappy one under my armpit blush

Can it be done with some cotton thread?

Would love to know if anyone has tried it and how it felt smile

Oh and does it dry up like a babies umbillical cord and then fall off?

I think I may need several glasses of wine before attempting it.

I did one with fishing line...eeurgh...v. tricky to tie a knot tight enough but after a few days it pretty much fell off like dried skin - no scar & no blood grin blush

Has it got a thin stalk?
If so give it a go with some cotton tied around the stalkvery tightly.
Have done a couple on my neck, as Bubble says its tricky to tie the cotton on, but maybe get someone to do it for you.
Very satisfying, tag will turn black, shrink, drop off and not even a scar.
