How can you tell if you have a skin tag?
It’s important to know the difference between a skin tag, a wart, and a mole…
Skin tags look like tiny bits of “hanging” skin and typically occur in sites where clothing rubs against the skin or where there is skin-to-skin friction, such as the underarms, neck, upper chest, and groin.
Skin tags are typically flesh-colored or may appear brown in light-skinned individuals. They may be smooth or wrinkled and range in size from very tiny (1 mm) to approximately the size of a grape.
Although it is usually possible to recognize a stalk that attaches the skin tag to the underlying skin, very small skin tags may appear as raised bumps on the skin…
Warts can develop on any skin surface, but different types tend to occur in specific sites. Common warts most frequently occur on the fingers, hands, arms and legs. Plantar warts develop on the soles of the feet and sometimes on the ankles.
The face is the most common site for filiform and flat warts. Flat warts also frequently develop on the legs and arms…
Moles are usually small, less than a ¼ inch in diameter, with well-defined symmetrical borders and mostly a single shade of color throughout the mole ranging from pink to dark brown.
Everyone has at least one mole on their body but most have many more and some have two or three types of moles.
When Should I Call the Doctor about Skin Tags?
Skin tags typically do not require medical treatment unless they are irritating to the patient or if removal for cosmetic reasons is contemplated.
- Most skin tags can be simply cut off in the doctor’s office.
