I found that during my last pregnancy (my son is now 21 months old) that I developed a couple skin tags around my eyes! Apparently it happens to some women during pregnancy but I don't know what to do to get rid of them. My doc wasn't much help, he said to just leave them. But they bug me so I want them gone.

I am going in 2 wks for an appointment to see a derm but in the meantime I'm wondering if anyone here has had these and how you got them removed. TIA!

My sister gets many at a time on her neck and gets the dermatologist to freeze them off. But I've gotten a couple before and simply shaved them off with a razor, no problem.

I know some have had success in removing skin tags with copper peptides (CPs) although I am not sure about the eye area. Here is one of the more recent CP threads of well-versed users who will know more: http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=37752 . HTHs.

You'll have to use a stronger Copper Peptide to get best results with the skin tags. (Super Cop or super Cop 2).

I used to have skin tags around the neck, chest, upper arms. I don't have any anymore since I quit sugar (replaced with NuNatural No Carb Stevia, and some xylitol). I also take chromium picolinate to help my blood sugar, but that's because I still eat carbs (nothing refined).

I had tags on my neck, about twenty. He cut them off with scissors. Yes it stung, but their gone. Under the eye I would see a derm.

I have to say I was a little surprised at the people who simply razored or scissored them off! You guys are far braver then I am!

I'm going to see the derm and hopefully he can freexe them off. Being the eye area I don't want to attempt anything harsh myself. Thanks for the feedback!

One day, I noticed a tiny little thing real close to my lower eye lashes. Couldn't figure out what it was. Couldn't brush it away...finally grabbed my tweezers and got a hold of it. Gave it a quick tug and "OWWWEEE" did that ever hurt!! That's when I figured out that it was probably a skin tag. End of story.
