Skin Tag Removal

What are Skin Tags?


Skin tags are little outward growths of skin. They commonly occur on the sides of the neck and under the arms and less often under the breasts or in the groin area. The tendency to get them is inherited. They are not due to anything you are doing wrong. As of January 2010, they are not a sign of anything wrong although they have incorrectly been blamed as precursor signs associated with bowel cancer, diabetes, and due to overweight. There is no know of any way to prevent new skin tags from appearing.

3) Scissor excision

4) Electrodesiccation
