Q&A: What is the latest treatment for skin tag removal?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

What is the latest treatment for skin tag removal? I am in my late 40's and over the last decade I have developed many skin tags. I estimate around 50 skin tags that need to be removed.

Amanda, 
 
The best treatment for skin tags is simple excision. There is no better way. They should be numbed with lidocaine prior to excision. I hope this information helps.
