Skin tags are skin growths and do not pose any risk to the health but prove to be an irritant as they can grow in any part of the body. Skin tags generally grow in those parts of the body where creases are formed like neck, armpits, and groin. Skin tags do not grow or change, are generally about 1mm in size and are painless. They are smooth and are raised from the skin surface of a fleshy stalk, called a peduncle.
The main cause of skin tags is friction caused by skin rubbing against skin in, creases and folds, and so they occur most prominently among obese people, pregnant women, and those who are diabetic. People suffering with rapid growth of skin tags face the task of going to the dermatologist, which is very expensive. So, skin tags can be removed easily by oneself without any fear provided proper safety measures are taken. Given below are a few procedures of safely removing skin tags.
