What Are Skin Tags?

Skin tags are soft, fleshy bits of raised skin that typically start very small, but can grow to the size of a marble. They can appear anywhere on the body. These skin growths will commonly form on the neck, face, eyelids, groin, under the arms or beneath the breasts.

Skin tags are usually the same color as the rest of your skin but they can also be brown tinged. Other than being aesthetically displeasing, skin tags are typically painless and are not a threat to your medical health.

Why Do Skin Tags Occur?

Skin tags may occur as a result of friction from skin rubbing together in areas like the underarms or from skin rubbing against clothing such as underclothes.

Some people are more prone to developing skin tags. Doctors believe that it may be a genetic condition. Skin tags are also found more frequently in people who are overweight and in pregnant women due to changes in hormones.
