Smooth and blemish-free skin is something we all strive for. While perfection is an unrealistic goal, anomalies such as skin tags can be more than an aesthetic concern, especially if they cause discomfort or embarrassment.

Visible Effects

Skin tags are composed of fibrous skin tissue that develops into a sac, which then hangs off the surface of the skin. They can occur individually or in clusters over a particular area of the skin.

Underlying Causes

There is no known definitive cause of skin tags, although it has been suggested they share a genetic component. They often occur in areas of skin chaffing or sweating such as under the arms.
