How do you get rid of ak skin growths and bumps on your face and also skin tags. Is there a home remedy?
Not really.: Ak stands for "actinic keratosis" - they are small crusty bumps caused by chronic sun damage. Dermatologists usually freeze them with liquid nitrogen; for severe cases a strong cream containing 5-FU or Imiquimod is used. Skin tags can be clipped off, or if they are large enough, you can tie a thread around each one to cut off blood supply. But most people (wisely, I think) let their doctor do this. ...Read more

Hi. I am having small white boils and skin tag like growths on my foreskin. I have tested negative for HSV syphillis and gonohrreh. Please advice?
See a dermatologist: The foreskin is not a common place for skin tags. Two possibilities are molluscum and warts. If the diagnosis is not clear from a physical examination, a small biopsy can be done to confirm. Both of these are viral infections of the skin and can be sexually transmitted. Until you figure out what these are, please use a condom with your partner. ...Read more

I have growths in my vagina... My first doctor said they were normal but my second said they might be skin tags or hpv... I don't know what to think?
Bothersome?: If the skin tags are bothering you, whether they are hpv related or just plain skin tags, you can ask your doctor to remove them. So long as they aren't cancerous, there's no problem in cutting them off, burning them off, tying them off, etc. Skin tags and hpv related condylomas can be irritating. If it bothers you, speak up and remove them. If md won't, find a doctor who will. ...Read more

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
