What is a skin tag?
Skin tags are harmless, small, soft pieces of skin that are raised, or hang off the skin by a connection stalk. They are usually the same colour as the surrounding skin, and can vary in size from a few millimetres up to 5 cm wide.
Skin tags are very common, and can affect up to half of the population, so if you suffer from them, you are certainly not alone.
Where do skin tags appear?
They often appear in areas of the body where clothing is likely to rub such as around the neck, chest, under the arms, around the bra-line and your back and groin.
Sometimes they can be confused with warts or moles. However, moles are normally darker than the skin and warts are normally rougher and flat.
Whilst skin tags are harmless and not contagious, you may not like the look and feel of them, and they can be irritating. They may be visible, especially in the summer months, and they can also get snagged on clothing and jewellery.
