Skin tags are small benign skin coloured growths that can vary in size from tiny bumps to 1cm in diameter. Some bigger skin tags hang off the skin from a small stalk.
Skin tags are normally found in areas where skin rubs against itself like the armpits, the groin and under the breasts but also where clothing or jewellery rubs on the skin like the neck. They can also grow on the eyelid and underneath the eyes.
Skin tags are normally harmless but can be annoying and painful when they grow in areas where clothing irritate them. Both men and women can get them. And sometimes hormonal changes can cause them to grow like during pregnancy.
