What are skin tags?
Skin tags are soft, skin coloured (or slightly darker) and protrude from the skin, usually on a stem. They are also known as acrochordons and are benign & not contagious.
People generally want to remove them because they are unsightly. However, another reason to remove them is because they can be irritating (with shaving for example).
You can find skin tags on the neck, shoulders, eyelids, under the armpit & under the breasts and the genitals.
Are all skin tags the same?
There are many different types of skin tags and there is no known reason why. Generally skin tags on the eye and eye lid areas drop formed, cylindrical or filoform.
Those found on the neck, shoulders and arm pits tend to be spherical, drop formed, dome shaped or pednuculated.
What causes skin tags?
It is still unknown what exactly causes a skin tag. You cannot prevent them. We do know that people who fall into these categories are more likely to have them:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Family history
- Hormonal changes (Pregnancy, Menopause)
- People over the age of 45
There is a higher incidence in people who wear chains or ill fitting bras. They may also occur when skin rubs against other skin or clothing.
