    I had this thing on my thumb a few months back that was called a granuloma. It's like a big skin-tag full of blood vessels. It was about the size of a pencil eraser. There was no feeling in it, but where it came out through the skin was really painful, especially if you bumped the thing. And it would bleed like a water faucet if you just nicked it on something. My GP said he could give me a local and "scrape" the thing off. I cringed at the thought of that.So, I did what you did. I got out my old first aid kit and sterilized everything well and did it myself. It healed up nicely after a couple of weeks.

    Mari, did you freeze them off yourself or did your doctor do it? Was just wondering if there is a freezing product available in stores. I've always had skin tags since I was a teenager. I usually go to the doctor when they start to bother me to get them cut off. They start getting caught in necklace chains after a while. My doctor told me to just cut them off with little scissors, but I am too squeamish to do that to myself. I've heard that getting them burned/frozen off works better, because they don't grow back in the same place.

    You can buy it over the counter. It is a wart removal thing and it freezes them off and works really well. I can't use it anymore because now when I freeze it off it starts a chain reaction rash that takes months to heal. It worked good before. Just like they did it at the doctor

    Thanks, I'll look for that at the store. Hopefully no rash ...maybe I'll just start with one tag then wait until it heals before I use it all over.
