Skin tags are harmless growths of brown or flesh coloured skin which can appear anywhere on the body.
Skin tags are raised growths which are either flesh coloured or brown. They usually appear to hang from the surface of the skin from a “stalk” and can range in size from 1mm to over 10mm.
Skin tags are most found in areas where the skin creases, such as the neck, groin or under the breasts. Skin tags consist of loose collagen fibres and blood vessels, which is why they can bleed if they are nicked or caught on jewellery.
Skin tags are completely harmless growths.
Some people are more prone to skin tags than others, and there are certain health lifestyle factors which can increase their occurrence, such as diabetes, pregnancy or obesity.
Skin tags can appear as skin coloured or brown bumps or lumps which are attached to the skin with a visible “stalk”. Very tiny skin tags might also appear as small bumps under the skin.
