In brief: See your doctor
There are many ways to remove a skin tag.
Some people will simply clip them with fingernail clippers...Other recommend tying a piece of fishing line or dental floss around them. I recommend patients be seen for this. They can be numbed up with a tiny needle, clipped, then cauterized. Almost no pain, bleeding, or chance of infection.

A physician can either excise/ cauterize under local anesthesia.
