There are several ways to remove skin tags. The easiest method is to have your doctor use a local anesthetic to numb the area and then just cut the tag off. Laser surgery, cryotherapy and cauterization are also options, but they are riskier and more invasive.

What could cause pimples and rash on my bottom and private area?
Evelyn Minaya, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, answered
Pimples and rashes on the bottom and in the private area can be caused by the same or different things. For example, the most common causes for rashes in the private areas is yeast. Yeast can affect the skin and it can not only lead to a rash but also to inflamed and uncomfortable rash. Yeast can come from different sources such as too much sugar and carbohydrates in the diet or sometimes because of sweating.Sweating can also lead to pimples on the skin in this area. Habits like not changing after working out and washing after being in a pool can lead to clogged pores just like it does in the face. You should never try to "pop" pimples because they can get secondarily infected.
"Pimples " or rashes can also occur due to dermititis. Dermititis is a conditon of the skin when the skin gets inflamed due to environmental causes. For example, a new detergent can cause inflammation of the skin.
When in doubt, check it out with your doctor.
