    I have loads of them appeared round my armpits where my bra must rub. They have started going brown too :x

    If you can get a little piece of cotton round it tie it off and it should drop off in a few days.....

    I had them all over my neck, under my boobs, under my arms, around my bra strap, pretty much everywhere, until about two weeks ago where I got really annoyed with them and start lopping them off with a pair of scissors... Some bled like anything, but others were ok... They were just really getting me down.

    No seriously... Pair of scissors dipped in iodine... cleaned the area with it.. and just a quick snip and off they come... they only hurt a tiny bit.. its nothing compared with labour :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: And once they have gone, they heal in a few days without leaving a scar.... Some like the ones in my arm pit kept getting caught with my razor, so were pretty painful. Now they've gone it feels much better :)

    Although apparently you're not supposed to do that... so I'm not advising it.. :) I just get mighty peed off and go drastic sometimes :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I had no idea they were anything to do with being pg! I got 2 in my armpit around 24 weeks- one just fell off, the other is still there... may follow Dr Squig's unofficiual advice for its swift removal!

    I have resorted to the scissor technique too- they don't really hurt when you chop them off and if they bleed just stick a little bit of loo roll on them....
