If you have annoying or uncomfortable skin tags, you are not alone. Up to half of all adults have at least one skin tag. Most of them do not require treatment. However, if your skin tags bother you or become irritated, a dermatologist can safely remove them.
What are Skin Tags?
Skin tags are benign skin growths. They often form within skin folds around the neck, abdomen, underarms, and groin. They are more likely to occur during pregnancy, in people who are obese, and in areas of frequent skin friction. While benign, they have a blood supply and can bleed more than expected if you try to remove one at home.
