Skin Tags

Skin tags are small growths or flaps of skin which are usually found around the neck, eyes, underarms, breasts, or groin. Thought to be caused by friction, skin irritation, obesity, and even genetics, these growths – which affect one in four people – are harmless. However, many people find them annoying, while others would like them gone for cosmetic reasons. If you want to remove them for cosmetic reasons, the best way to remove them is to see a dermatologist to get it done definitively. A blade can be used but they can also be removed with liquid nitrogen or with a surgical electrodessicator.
