Wart Freeze Off For Skin Tags
I have skin tags in both armpits. What's a quick safe way to remove them myself at home? Would wart freeze away work? Thanks!
Wart freeze: Wart freeze would work. Also can be shaved or cut using sharp scissors after numbing with ice cubes. Tying them with a thread if they are big enough is another option.
Yes: Salicylic acid impregnated pads can be used on skin tags. Place the pad over the skin tag for 24 hours and remove and wash. Over 1-2 weeks you should spontaneously remove the tag without pain. Do not use salicylic acid on open wounds/inflamation. Be careful of using the patches on the face or groin.
Skin tag: Can be removed by tiring strings around them really tightly until the skin does and the fall off. You can try to get rid of warts by covering with duct tape (real kind) and only removing it to change it until wart is gone). Warts are more difficult

I was told skin tags caused by HPV are spreadable. If so, how can I tell if its a natural tag or by hpv? I know it isn't a wart, so why can it spread?
Not skin tag: Hpv, or human papilloma virus, causes warts, including common warts and genital warts. These are different from skin tags. A skin tag is generally a flap of skin or similar, while a wart is flat. Because warts contain virus, they can be infectious. To be sure, see your provider.See 1 more doctor answer

Here are some...: If the lesions are obviously skin tags, leave them alone as long as you cope with them well mentally and physically.

Occasionally, biopsy is needed for differential diagnosis.
