i have a skin tag under my right arm..been there for years etc but over the past couple of months i keep catching it with the razor when i shave and it bleeds. I remember when my sister had a skin tag by her ear as a baby the dr put cotton thread around it so it would fall off....i know you are not medical people as such but just wondered if the same would apply to this one or because it has a blood supply of some sort i would have to get it frozen off by the dr?
My dd had a skin tag on her upper lip when she was little and they put liquid nitrogen on it and it fell off.
she also has one under her right arm, how strange that this seems to be a common thing. It doesn't bother her, she's only 7 so not shaving at the moment lol, maybe in a few years she'll want it removed for comestic reasons.
