How to remove skin tags at home with a little help from my friends?

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 or dental floss around them, but that seldom works. ...Read more

Pimple on cheek for around 8 months. Now it's flat, dry, and super red.How to get rid of it? Any home remedies that you can easily find in your house?

Please have the patient checked by the doctor as prescription medications may be needed. ...Read more
