I'd be interested in trying other methods for those that are hard to reach!
Everything I've ever read suggests tying them off..cutting off the blood supply and they will eventually fall off.

Most skin tags are caused by some strain of the HPV virus..I wish we knew what strain and there was a vaccine or something..I get new ones everyday!
