For many people, developing a skin growth can be worrisome. However, skin tags are harmless growths and are only an inconvenience from an aesthetic point of view. Moreover, and unlike warts, skin tags are not contagious.
You can also tell apart a skin tag from a wart because tags have a smooth surface and hang off the skin, whereas warts appear raised above the skin. Rubbing or chafing against the skin is believed to be one of the main causes of skin tags, which is why they usually develop in skin folds.
Skin tags can be removed if they affect your self-confidence or get caught on clothing or jewellery, although sometimes they fall of on their own without requiring treatment.
– Some people are more prone to developing skin tags than others, although they can appear on people of all ages and health conditions.
– Never attempt to remove a skin tag by yourself.
– Treatment can involve surgical removal or freezing them.
