Customer Question
I have several large...

I have several large skin tags on my eyelid and wonder if a home remedy is available or do I need to see a doctor?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?

The skin tags have been getting increasingly worse/more painful/sensitive, etc. over the past 2-3 weeks. Pet allergies seem to have exasberated them.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, just super sensitive skin. I've been using mycellar water to wash my face due to sensitivity.

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. In general, there aren't any good home remedies or over the counter treatments for skin tags. If/when they are becoming worse, I advise seeing a dermatologist for a skin tag removal procedure. Especially on the eyelids, where it is a sensitive and delicate place, it's safest and most effective to have someone experienced with removal perform the procedure.

Can I help with anything else today?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
