    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Which doctor is the least expensive to go to have skin tags removed. I brought remover as seen on TV but it smelled so bad I cannot use it.

    I've purchased the on TV remover also but have not consistently tried it, but the smell is from the Tea Tree Oil, which you can use just straight (which I tried), but the smell is worse. I've also read on some "natural remedies" sites that apple cider vinegar will clear them, by dabbing a cotton ball with vinegar and applying it 3 times a day. My only problem is with consistency.

    Skin tags are covered by insurance to remove and most primary docs and all dermatologists are skilled at the removal.
