Skin Tags India
Skin tags are common, earned benign skin growths that look like a small, soft balloons of hanging skin. Skin tags are harmless development that can vary in range from one to hundreds. Males and females are equally prone to developing skin tags. Obesity is associated with skin tag development. Although some skin tags may fall off spontaneously, most persist once shaped. The medical name for skin tag is acrochordon.
Skin tags are bits of flesh-colored or darkly pigmented tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a little, parochial stalk. Some people call these growths “skin tabs.”
Early on, skin tags may be as little as a flattened pinhead-sized bump. While most tags typically are small (2 mm-5 mm in diameter) at approximately one-third to common fraction the size of a pinky fingernail, some skin tags may become as large as a large grape (1 cm in diameter) or a fig (5 cm in diameter).
Skin tags typically occur in characteristic locations, including the:
- base of the neck,
- groin folds,
- buttock folds,
- under the breasts.
What problems do skin tags cause?
Except for the cosmetic appearance, skin tags usually cause no natural pain or drawback. These tiny skin development generally cause symptoms when they are repeatedly irritated (for example, by the collar or in the groin). Cosmetic removal for unsightly appearance is perhaps the foremost common reason they are removed. Occasionally, a tag may require removal because it has become irritated and red from trauma (hemorrhage) or black from twisting and death of the skin tissue (necrosis). Sometimes, they may become snagged by dress, jewelry, pets, or seat belts, causing pain or drawback. Overall, these are very benign growths that have no cancer (malignant) potential.
Occasionally, a tag may involuntarily fall off without any pain or drawback. This may occur after the tag has twisted on itself at the stalk base, interrupting the blood flow to the tag.
Will removing a skin tag cause more to grow?
There is no proof that removing a skin tag will cause more tags to grow. There is no expectation of causing skin tags to “seed”
