Hangovers come from drinking too much, and the "cure" is not to drink that much. To some extent, "clear" alcohol causes fewer hangovers than "colored" ones. Latest cure- warm Sprite. Cut down! ...Read more

I have sick tags on my private area. Is there anything I can get over-the-counter to get rid of them?

Skin tags: I assume you mean skin tags, but you need to be sure they are not warts.
