What is a skin tag?
A skin tag is probably best described as a benign skin growth. Common areas that you may find skin tags are around the armpits, neck, eyelids, under the breasts, or in the groin area.
Are you likely to have or get skin Tags?
Anyone can get them and approximately half of all people will have them at some stage. Middle age would be the most likely time to see them although pregnancy is another common time to see them because of hormonal changes.
Are their Health Risks of Skin Tags?
Apart from discomfort there is no real health risk. They are more of an irritation than a health risk.
