Skin Tags

I have an annoying skin tag, a small growth, that is bothering me. It came up when I was traveling at a conference, in jeans all day, in uncomfortable chairs. I noticed it while running one day, and it's been bugging me ever since.

It's on my upper leg, just below the gluteus. So it's right near my butt, and it's annoying. I searched a few places, and a number of people say that it's not worth a trip to the doctor. They recommend tying it off with dental floss or sterile thread and then snipping it off, using some antibiotic for a few days.

I need to do that, or at least, I need to ask my wife if she'll help and if it's not the dumbest idea she'd heard of. In the meantime, running with some annoying pain.
