I've dealt with this for a year and I found this site and it made me feel not so alone. Reading all these posts i've learned a lot and have utilized some of these strategies. What works for me, and I can't imagine won't work for most, is the dental floss idea. I've tried this three times and it's worked every time. Simply, I made a loop with dental floss, tied it around the base of the GW and made a double knot. The GW turned black, since it was cut off from blood and oxygen and died, and fell off after 3-5 days. The skin underneath was left totally intact and returned from red to normal within a few days after I applied Neosporin to the area. It's like it never occured and made feel a huge sigh of relief. I also applied some alcohol with a q-tip to the area while the GW was being choked in fear of it spreading. The first time this worked was about two weeks ago and there has been no spreading. I think is a cheap, slightly uncomfortable, solution to the problem. Wanted to put my input because I love this thread it's helped me a lot.

The first time I kept it on for 4 or 5 days because I didnt know what was going to happen. I woke up on the 4th or 5th day and it had fallen off in my sleep. The next two that it worked on I went into the bathroom after about 3 or 4 days and tugged at the end string just slightly and it came right off with no bleeding just slightly red smooth skin underneath. Keep it on for like 3 days until it has turned totally black and shrunk a little then you can tell it's totally dead and give it a slight tug. If after a slight tug it stays and is painful to the pull then leave it for another day or two. It should be a lot pain just a slight pinch. If after a day or two the GW hasn't turned totally black then it is still alive. What I did when that happened to me was just tied another string around it and tighter than the last time. So 3-5 days. At least for me.

Also, don't tie it so tight you make yourself bleed. I can't imagine that would be good at all. I applied hydrogen peroxide to the surrounding area and the GW every day just to be cautious. Probably should have included that in my post.

Excuse me, that comment may have been confusing. It should NOT be a lot of pain just a slight pinch. Nothing about this process should be very painful at all. A bee sting at the most.
