Skin tags

As we get older we get skin tags. I have finally found a doctor who will cut them off rather than freeze them. Its better

They are gastly growths we get when we put on weight or just as we get older. More of a cosmetic problem as far as I know.
Many doctors are afraid to just but them off. I have found thats much quicker (although it hurts for a few minutes) than freezing them. http://www.medicinenet.com/skin_tag/article.htm

Try pure Aloe vera oil 3x a day for a few days.
Woosh, all gone!

When I saw "skin tags".....I thought that I must have forgotten to remove the price from my birthday suit.
