Skin tag removal by the NHS
If you have any health concerns about your skin tag, then you should consult your doctor. However, skin tag removal is regarded as cosmetic surgery which is rarely available through the NHS. So if you want to have your skin tag removed by a doctor, you are likely to have to pay to have it done privately.
Skin tag removal kits
There are a number of types of skin tag removal kit available on the market. Cryotag is a clinically proven skin tag removal kit which contains a freezing device and 12 applicators for up to 12 skin tag treatments. There are also tweezers in the kit to ensure you can get a firm grip on the skin tag and target it precisely. It can treat small to large skin tags from 2mm to 6mm so there is no need to buy 2 different products if you have different skin tag sizes.
Online there are also a number of kits using different technologies, but do make sure that you use a kit which has been clinically proven and has the CE mark to ensure it was been approved by the relevant European authority.
