One way to remove small skin tags is to use a medication that freezes them and causes them to fall off after seven to 10 days, according to Medical News Today. Other ways to remove skin tags include cauterization, ligation and excision.
Skin tags most commonly form under the breasts, on the neck and in eyelid creases. They affect men and women equally; however, individuals who are overweight or pregnant are more susceptible to skin tags, notes Medical News Today. While these tags classify as tumors, they are not harmful. Skin tags generally range from 2 to 10 millimeters in diameter.
