Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are painless, noncancerous growths on the skin. These skin growths are made up of blood vessels and collagen, surrounded by an outer layer of skin. They are connected to the skin by a small, thin stalk called a peduncle.

They usually appear on the neck and other places where there are skin folds like the armpits, groin, thighs, eyelids and the area under your breasts.


Most skin tags on the neck are tiny in size and soft to the touch. In appearance, they may be smooth and round or wrinkly and asymmetrical.

Skin tags equally affect males and females. The older you get, the more susceptible you are to these skin tags. You may have a higher risk of developing skin tags if you are diabetic, overweight, pregnant, have the human papillomavirus (HPV) or have family members who have skin tags.

It is not yet clear what causes skin tags. However, as they usually develop in skin folds, friction may play a role.

A 2008 study published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology found that HPV may be a factor in the development of skin tags.

In 2010, a study published in the Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia reported that multiple skin tags are associated with insulin resistance, a high body mass index (BMI) and high triglycerides.

Usually skin tags are not harmful. However, most people want to get rid of them for cosmetic and aesthetic reasons. While cryosurgery, cauterization and excision can help remove skin tags, there are many safe and effective home treatments that you can use to remove skin tags yourself.
