Instructions for Use (included in kit)

Step 1: Applying the TagTarget® skin shield

The TagTarget® skin shield is a self-sticking round pad with a hole in the center like a "bull's eye". It fits over the skin tag and protects the healthy skin around the skin tag. It helps you target the skin tag you want to treat. ALWAYS apply the right size TagTarget® skin shield before treating with Compound W® Skin Tag Remover. If it helps you to see the skin tag, such as one located on your neck, use a mirror to help you to place the TagTarget® skin shield (Figure 1). Choose a TagTarget® skin shield with a hole that just fits over the skin tag. The package has skin shields with 3 different size holes.

Step 2: Preparing the Foam-tip Applicator and Holder

Use Compound W® Skin Tag Remover only with the foam-tip applicators in the package. Compound W® Skin Tag Remover may not work if you use other applicators. Insert the stick end of the applicator firmly into the holder (Figure 2).

Step 3: Freezing the Applicator

  1. Place the can firmly on a table or other level surface. Insert the holder and applicator into the top of the can. Line up notches in holder with the openings on top of the can (Figure 3).
  2. Hold the can firmly upright with one hand. With the other hand, press the holder down until you hear a hissing sound. Continue to press the holder down so that you hear the hissing sound for 2-3 seconds. This indicates the applicator has been exposed to enough freezing liquid.
  3. Remove the holder and applicator from the can. Wait 10 – 20 seconds. The applicator may appear frosty and you may also smell some ether.

Note: If you do not hear the hissing sound, it indicates the can is not working properly, do not use the product. Call us toll-free at 1-800-443-4908 to get a replacement product.

Warning: Do not touch the applicator to your fingers or touch other areas of your skin as this may cause skin damage including burning or scarring.

Step 4: Freezing the Skin Tag

  1. Lightly press the applicator tip on only one side of the stalk where it attaches to the skin (Figure 4). Use a mirror if necessary to help see the skin tag.
  2. Hold for 40 seconds in one place. Caution: Do not move the tip around as the applicator needs to remain in one place to be effective.
  3. You will likely feel a mild aching or stinging sensation.

After use and follow-up care

  • Save the re-usable applicator holder for future use.
  • Throw the foam-tip applicator away. Caution: Do not reuse. Applicators are not intended for multiple use.
    Warning: Do not touch the applicator to your fingers or touch other areas of your skin as this may cause skin damage including burning or scarring.
  • Gently remove the TagTarget® skin shield after use and throw it away.
  • Wash hands immediately after using. You can wash any treated areas after any mild sensations such as aching or stinging go away.

To help avoid infection:

  • Keep the treated area clean.
  • Do not pick or scratch the treated area.
  • Do not pull the skin tag off with your fingers.
  • Do not cut the skin tag off.
  • Cover the treated site with a bandage to protect the skin while it heals.

Skin tags usually fall off within 2 weeks after the first treatment. After 2 weeks, if the skin tag is not gone, apply again. After 2 more weeks, if the skin tag is still not gone, apply again. After 2 more weeks (six weeks total), if the skin tag is still not gone, stop using this product on that skin tag. Instead, talk to your doctor because the growth may not be a skin tag and may be a more serious condition. You may track the treatment of your skin tag(s) on the treatment chart provided on the last page of the Information Booklet included in the kit.
