What are Skin tags?

Skin tags are very common soft harmless lesions that appear to hang off the skin. They are also described as:

  • Acrochordons
  • Papillomas
  • Fibroepithelial polyps

Skin tags develop in both men and women as they grow older. They are skin coloured or darker and range in size from 1mm to 5cm. They are most often found in the skin folds (neck, armpits, groin). They tend to be more numerous in obese persons and in those with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

How are Skin Tags Treated?

Dermatologists are able to remove skin tags very effectively with either a minor surgical procedure or by using specialised freezing techniques, which cause the skin tags to shrivel and fall off.
