I have a skin tag on my neck…?

I have a skin tag on my neck. You know those little things. Is it true you arent suppose to rip it off because it can become cancerous? Because my shirts keep on rubbing it and it really hurts. If i cant rip it off myself, can i go to a doctor and ask them to? is that expensive to do?

Hi John. Before you attempt to remove skin tags, you should be completely certain that you are in fact dealing with skin tags, rather than a more serious growth. A skin tag is very small and grows slowly, never reaching a size greater than ½ inch (1.27cm). The skin tag may appear to be a flap of skin or a small round mass attached to the skin by a peduncle or stalk. The skin tag should be soft and movable, with a pigmentation that is similar to the rest of your skin or slightly darker.

Once you have established what you are dealing with, you can begin to remove skin tags. There a few options. You could see your doctor but removal of a skin tag is not usually covered by medical insurance if it is for cosmetic reasons. If yours is irritating you its worth a chat with your doctor as he may be able to do it for you. Alternatively, there are methods you can choose from to do it yourself at home. Our skin tag removal kit takes only one 15 minute application to work & is 100% natural.
