Many of you have requested to read my short story that won Peach Days this year. I have posted it to the left. I will only keep it up for a week as it takes up a lot of room and I am too computer illiterate to know how to do it any other way. he he
So, the topic for today's discussion are skin tags. Ever heard of them? Yes, they're gross but a fact of life none the less.
They are little protrusions of skin that appear out of no where. They are sent from Satan to bother and annoy us. Some think they come as a part of aging. Maybe so, but Satan has a hand in it.
There are ways these pesky little varmints can be removed. The expensive way is to have your doctor cut it off, freeze it or some other procedure that your insurance wont cover.
There are ways though, to take care of it at home. I was looking up these methods yesterday on the web when I came across a few.
The first was to cut it off with fingernail clippers. I have a small skin tag on the front part of my shoulder just above my arm pit. It made it's debut just after my first child was born. I tried to cut it off then, but it bled like a sucker and grew back! Tenacious little devils!
So, I let it alone, conceding defeat. I have once again gained enough courage to attempt the impossible. I sterilized my fingernail clippers, closed my eyes and just DID it! It hurt a bit, but when I looked down, it was still attached. Even though the clippers were completely closed. The dang clippers were too dull to cut it. They just pinched it and that was all.
So, my little skin tag filled with blood and looked so much prettier than before! I got back on the computer. There had to be a better way. They suggested tying a thread around it to cut off the blood supply. It would fall off in a couple of days. I tried to get both Bry and Jake to do that. The pansies wouldn't even try!
Then I came to a page that said to use Tea Tree Oil 3 times a day. Diluted with water. That sounded easy enough, so that is what I am doing now. I will let you know how it all turns out.
We'll just see who is toughest here! Me or my Satan sent skin tag!!!
