Just get a chemical peel with Salicylic Acid 20 percent. I use all sorts of peels and this particular peel ingredient I used overnight on a cystic pimple AND on a skin tag/mole. Pimple gone by morning. Completely gone. Skin tag is significantly smaller after just two overnight "treatments".
I am trying it on some skin tags myself. So far it does seem to be shrinking them. What is the proper way to use this for skin tags though? Unfortunately it has gotten on some areas around the skin tag. My skin is pretty raw at this point. I am not sure if I should back off for a while and let the skin heal or keep using it until it is completely gone?
Yes it can. I have successfully used this product and with no adverse effects, to remove skin tags from around my eyes and eyelids. It works. I used the liquid Compound W that comes with a brush so you literally just paint it on about twice a day for two weeks.
Probably not. It will damage any healthy skin it touches too, and with skin tags, its not too possible to keep it from getting on your skin. Unless it says its safe to do that on the label, I certainly wouldn't try it.
