Tie a string around it (TMI post)

So at my annual on Friday, I asked my OB about the mysterious third nipple growing from the side of my left nipple. I joke about it, but in the past year, it really looks like another nipple is growing--full of sensation and all. She diagnosed it as a skin tag and said I could do one of two things. I could see a dermatologist and get it removed, or I can just tie a string around it to cut off circulation, and it will fall off on its own. Huh? You mean like the three stooges, and how they pull teeth with a string and a doorknob?

So this AM, after an exhausting fight/serious conversation, DH and I went for a much needed run. After we both got back and showered, I asked him to tie a string around my baby nip. He looked utterly disgusted, confused, and freaked. Once he got up the courage, I raided my sewing kit, choosing black as the appropriate color, and he tied it up.

Bizarre, no?

Bizarre yes! But i get a lot of skin tags and hate them (PCOS symptom). I didn't know you could do that string thing. I have had them in my armpits before and it makes shaving really hazardous! Luckily never one on my nipple but I guess now I know what to do! Good luck! Btw, thanks for your comments! My hair truly is hopeless - I could write a whole post about it! I just realized I ended almost every sentence with an exclamation point! I hate when I do that!! :)

I was told the same thing by a doc and went with the string route. I was in college at the time and didn't have the money to consider any other option. Mine was on my hip and it was easy, painless and there's no visible scar. It was a little awkward to explain to anyone who saw it though...
