Data suggests that liquid iodine can be used to eliminate skin tags. However, there is no scientific evidence to support this claim. Anyone who wants to try should first apply petroleum jelly or coconut oil to the skin around the tag to protect it.
After that, wet a Q-tip in iodine and apply it to the tag. Until the iodine has dried, cover the area with a bandage. Repeat this procedure twice daily until the tag falls off.
