Skin tags are those soft, fleshy growths that protrude from the skin and sometimes hang off it. They’re harmless but sometimes annoying as they may rub against clothing or get snagged by jewelry. And, let’s face it, if you have a skin tag that’s sitting in plain view, you may get tired of looking at it. In that case, head for the dermatologist, not the drugstore. (And above all, don’t reach for the scissors, nail clippers, or a piece of string!)
What is a skin tag?
Skin tags, technically called acrochordons, are benign skin growths made of collagen fibers, nerve cells, fat cells, and a covering of skin. They are usually flesh-colored but maybe darker. They often start as a small, flat bump. Sometimes they stay that way, but often they begin to slowly protrude from the skin. Skin tags can appear almost anywhere, but they tend to grow in skin folds. Common sites include the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin area, and under the breasts.
No one knows exactly why skin tags form, but they’re more common with age, obesity, and pregnancy. Friction — from skin rubbing against skin or clothing rubbing against the skin — is one possible trigger. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to develop skin tags. It’s possible that insulin resistance might also increase the risk.
There is no medical reason skin tags need to be removed, but if you find them bothersome or unsightly, a dermatologist can get the job done. (Skin tags sometimes fall off on their own, but most don’t.)
