What Is a Skin Tag?
Skin tags are common, benign growths of skin that virtually everyone has on their bodies. They don’t pose a threat to your health, but they can be annoying. Skin tags are caused by the friction of skin rubbing against skin. Therefore, they’re most common in the groin area, underarms, and neck. When skin tags occur in areas where your clothing rubs them, they can become inflamed and painful.
How Are Skin Tags Removed?
Problem skin tags need to be removed, so they don’t interfere with your everyday activities. Removing a skin tag is a simple, straightforward process and can be done in Dr. Darst’s office. They can be cut off using a sterile instrument or frozen off with liquid nitrogen. A local anesthetic may be used before the procedure is performed. Dr. Darst will determine with approach is best based on where the skin tag is located.
When a skin tag is removed, it probably won’t come back, but your body will produce new tags, which may require attention at some point.
