SKIN TAGS

Skin tags are soft and small growths, typically flesh-colored or somewhat brown, found on healthy skin. Skin tags are non-cancerous growths, most often forming in the folds of the body (e.g., the neck, on the underarms, and around the groin). Skin tags can develop on any individual. However, they are found most commonly in overweight people, as well as individuals who have Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Skin tags are fairly common; in fact, 59% of all people have experienced a skin tag on their body at some point in their life.

While skin tags are harmless, some individuals find the appearance of skin tags undesirable, or they can get in the way of clothing or jewelry. Any of our board-certified dermatologists can remove a skin tag.
