Thanks for writing to us.
The removal of warts, moles and skin tags depends on their location, depth and the physical appearance. Most of these can be removed by some medicines or chemical cauterization. In some cases procedures like dermabrasion are also helpful. It is best to get these lesions examined by your dermatologist for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
