I have seen commercials for a safe skin tag remover but I can’t think of the name off the top of my head.  I had a small one on the side of my neck once but it left on it’s own thank goodness!  Try googling it, I am sure you’ll find what I am talking about.

Speaking as a surgeon: You can have them cut off under local anaesthetic (I’ve done it, it takes less than 10 minutes). If you have a single stitch put in that should minimise any scarring/hair loss/bleeding in the area. However if it’s really small it’s unlikely you’d need a stitch.

Speaking as someone who had one: I had one on my leg tied with thread, which didn’t work (it came straight back), and then frozen off (which worked but made me pass out in the doctor’s office). 

If I had to choose I’d probably got for getting it cut off under local anaesthetic. But you have to find a doc willing to do it. The chance of it getting infected is really low, no matter what solution you choose. However the thread method is most likely for it to just grow straight back.

My mother has used the Dr. Scholl’s kit and it worked just fine for her.

It was done by the general surgery department in the hospital I worked in. However this is the UK (NHS), and so I’m not sure what it would be like in the US.

Apple cider vineagar.

1st coat the area around the skin tag with vasoline

secure with bandaids and keep on overnight.

in the morning, take off the band aids and wash with soap and warm water

keep doing this for about 2 weeks and it will be gone
