What are skin tags?
Skin tags are repulsive but harmless growths on the skin. They grow on a thin stalk and are mostly found on the face, eyelids, neck, armpits, groin, or under breasts. They are sometimes called polyps or soft fibroma.
Skin tags are common to both men and women. Although they usually occur in elderly people, they may affect anyone at any age and can appear anywhere in the body. Some skin tags are categorized as moles or skin lesions. Skin tags are often flesh-colored skin growths that typically appear on body creases and folds.
Skin tags are painless, however, wearing items that rub against your skin may irritate you. Thus, if your skin is prone to this skin growth, it is best to avoid types of clothing, jewelry and other accessories that cause undue friction on your skin.
