How do I remove a skin tag? ?
I've noticed that I have a skin tag a mole, I can't tell, right next to my anus. Obviously it won't be easy to reach back there to take it off so how do I remove it?

-- You need to see your family doctor and be referred to a dermatologist. The dermatologist can determine if it is a mole or a skin tag. That is the method/procedure here in Australia.
-- Usually a skin tag is removed by "freezing:" it with nitrogen. It is something a dermatologist regularly has in his office whilst a family doctor would not.
-- If it is a "mole", the dermatologist may do a biopsy to see if it is malignant and possibly cancerous.

Doctors surgery can freeze skin tags off. Simple procedure. A little stingy but not bad. Very successful

put tea tree oil on it, it'll fall off

Dermatologist. Don't go poking around there yourself. They might have a cream or chemical that claims to remove it, but due to the location I would not do that
