String: If you have a skin tag or lesion with a narrow base, and you are sure it is not malignant, a useful way to deal with it is to take a length of stout thread (you might need a helper for this), and lasso the base with a loop of the thread, tie is tightly with 2-3 knots, cover with a piece of tape and wait a week for it to fall off without leaving a scar. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How do I remove sabs i had a tatoo done and now it sabing up and would like them off , how can I do without harmto skin and tatoo?
Hello. : Hello. If you pull off the scabs now, you may end up pulling off much more skin then intended.

Depends on glue : See your dentist. Depends on glue and the something. If it was superglue, it will eventually come off as the glue dissolves in the mouth -- may take days / weeks. If you can grab the something with your fingers or needlenose pliers, you might be able to twist it off. If it is soft enough, you might use an emery board to sand/file it off. If all else fails --see your dentist. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can I get rid of a wart on my nose they have cut it out with a biopsy, and also tried to freeze it off but came back
First, : First, i would presume the biopsy confirmed it was a wart? If so, i would recommend that you try liquid nitrogen treatment again but make sure that you do a follow up appointment about three weeks after the initial treatment. Sometimes, a second treatment session is very helpful to "polish" off the base of the wart . There are a few other topical options but typically a wart on the nose resolves fairly easily with liquid nitrogen. I hope that helps! ...Read more

She says when ever she wipes after she poops that it is a bright red color of blood, she also says there a good amount of blood. she was born with a skin tag/ mole right around the hole. I'm worried but she doesn't want me to take her to the doctor.

In all honesty...: ...I discourage people from doing this because of risk of bleeding, infections and scarring. That said, if you're going to do it anyway, clean the skin and a very sharp pair of small nail scissors with alcohol, and snip them off. Big ones can bleed quite a lot, so let your doc do those. An old folk remedy is to tie thread around them, but that seldom works. Otc "paint on" products are worthless. ...Read more
