    Dental floss then use plumbers torch to cauterize and finally a dab of Neosporin and you are good to go. Steel nuts help a bit. Bandaids are for sissies.

    I grab them and yank... little blood, dab on an antibiotic cream, good to go. It is just a little pain...

    Had one starting to get a bit long on one eyelid. While dental floss sounds, maybe not for that one. And no, I ain't tough enough to shoot it off.

    What I did was rub, not too hard but not lightly for about 30 seconds every day I washed my face. That just wore it away.

    I have used the tie and clip. Tied it with some button twist thread, wait a few hours, then snip off with sharp scissors. Minimal blood, minimal fuss. The wait of some time allows the tissue to die, that is the reason for the lack of pain, and minimal bleeding.

    Dermatologist. Worth it. Blows my mind how many actors, actresses and other people I see on TV/movies with disgusting things on their faces that a Dr. could remove in a minute. I'm just a po' boy, but I'll go to a doc in a heartbeat for stuff like that.

    I use a fine pair of end cutters and apply pressure till the pain stops and the tag comes off and no blood.

    In the summers, break off a milkweed leaf and put the white stuff that oozes out of the stem onto your tag. It may burn just a bit but it works.
    Keep it up for a few weeks and they go away. I got rid of a bunch of them that way.

    The old folks used to use a hair from a horse's tail tied around the tag. Also good for warts if you can get it tied around the thing. GW

    A sharp pair of scissors and the determination to use them get the job done quite well.

    I would have need stock in the floss company or my own stable for tail hair to tie them all off ,not to mention the help of someone very near to me ( some were in peculiar places couldn't see them but they were there) spend 2hrs in day surgery having them ALL removed by scalpel, freezing, cauterizing (flame thrower I think) and every other means. The conversation with the surgeon was if anyone training today would like a shot at this its your lucky day I'm pretty sure even the admitting clerk got to take some off. So surgery was the way for me
