Skin tag removal
Skin tags, are small, benign skin growths that typically appear as soft, flesh-colored, or slightly darker protrusions on the skin's surface. They are usually attached to the skin by a thin stalk or peduncle and can vary in size from a few millimeters to a centimeter or more. Skin tags are most commonly found in areas where the skin rubs against itself or clothing, such as the neck, underarms, groin, and under the breasts. While skin tags are harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern or cause minor irritation if they catch on clothing or jewelry.
