• Description

    These are benign growths that can generally appear on the face, armpits, under breasts, groin, upper chest, or neck.

  • Cause

    Skin tags, small growths of skin, typically occur in areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, armpits, groin, and eyelids. The exact cause is not fully understood but may involve friction, hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy), insulin resistance, and genetic predisposition. While generally harmless, skin tags can be removed for cosmetic reasons or if they become irritated or bothersome.

  • Treatment

    The procedure for the removal of skin tags is generally quick and painless. The skin tags can be treated based on their size with cauterization (heat), cryosurgery ( frozen), or surgical excision. Numbing is done before every procedure to make the process as comfortable as possible.
