Does the wart acid sold OTC really work in removing skin tags?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.
