Skin tags are excess pieces of skin that hang off the skin and often grow in clusters on the body. They occur in at least 25% of adults and can keep developing with age. These growth are usually brown or beige and are attached to the rest of your skin by a thick stalk, which makes them appear raised. They can appear anywhere on the body, but are commonly found on the neck, upper chest, and underarms. Normally skin tags do not cause any pain but can become highly irritated if they rub or get caught on clothing, bedding or jewelry. Just like moles, skin tags are common and safe to remove!
