My son has just told me of an article he read somewhere which indicated that 1) there is a relationship between insulin resistance and skin tags and 2) that iodine can get rid of skin tags. Has anyone ever heard of this? I am T2, insulin resistant and have a dozen or so skin tags, some of which are very uncomfortable. A couple of years ago my GP tried to remove one on my neck with liquid nitrogen. It not only didn't work, but the tag just grew and now looks like a very prominent mole. I have some iodine dry spray and will see if it makes any difference, but I can't see what the connection could be to insulin resistance.
