What are Skin Tags?

Sin Tags On The Neck Region

Skin tags are protrusions of the skin that are skin colored or dark brown in color. They are also called acrochordons, cutaneous papillomas and cutaneous tags.

Skin tags occur in places

  • where skin rubs against skin constantly  - neck,under the breasts, groin, armpits 
  • against other objects such as jewelry

They are harmless and nothing to worry about.

Skin tags can be removed if they cause discomfort or for cosmetic reasons. There are specific procedures for skin tag removal.
