A skin tag is a small, soft, benign skin growth on the skin.They tend to appear anywhere throughout the body; including the eyelids, chest, neck, and armpits. A person may have anywhere from one to hundreds of skin tags, and almost everyone will develop a skin tag at some point in their lives. Although some skin tags may fall off spontaneously, most persist once formed. The medical name for skin tag is acrochordon.
Skin tags are generally harmless; however, they may become irritated from rubbing against clothing or their appearance may become bothersome. Therefore, many individuals choose to remove their skin tags.
