Skin tags are harmless but they can be extremely annoying especially when they appear in obvious places for all to see.
The growths appear as tiny flaps of skin and are caused “by irritation from skin rubbing on skin or on clothing” and also found in “areas of friction like around the neck, under the arms and by the groin,” explains Dr. Bruce Katz, a NYC-based dermatologist.
If you’re prone to getting these little bumps on your skin, you’re definitely not alone. About 1 in 4 people get them and factors like genetics and weight can play a role in their development.
Since they’re benign, removing them is very easy. You can opt for a dermatologist assisted removal, an over-the-counter solution or do it yourself at home!
You only need one product and you probably already have it in your pantry.
