Skin Tags

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are small skin-coloured growths that hang off the skin. They are made of collage fibres, blood vessels and skin. 

Skin tags are very common and completely harmless. 

How to recognise skin tags? 

Skin tags are usually easily recognisable, but may look similar to other skin growths like warts. They can vary in colour and size. 

Skin tags are usually found on areas of friction, skin folds and areas where skin rubs against itself.

The most common areas are neck, armpits, around the groin, under the breasts, eyelids and between the eyelashes.

What is causing skin tags?

The exact reason is not known. They can occur equally on men and women with no apparent reason. Skin tags are more common in older people, those who are overweight or have type 2 diabetes or hormone fluctuations (like pregnancy).

Do you need to remove a skin tag?

Although skin tags are not a medical concern they are considered undesirable as they can catch on necklaces, get nipped when shaving and potentially become infected. They normally present a cosmetic concern especially when on the face.
