How Can I Remove A Skin Tag From The Bottom Eyelid?

I have a skin tag on my bottom eyelid right on the eye lash line. It's not very and is hardly visible, but when I blink it rubs against my pupil and is very uncomfortable. I am worried about using OTC skin tag remover because I don't want to get any into my eye. How damaging would it be to my eye if I attempted this? What other methods to remove it are there? About how expensive would the procedure be if I did need to see a doctor for it (assuming that insurance does not cover it).

Hello,

I recommend you see an ophtalmologist (eye doctor) to have it examined and excised. Do not attempt to remove this yourself.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
