Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags (acrochordons) are noncancerous and don’t get bigger or change over time. Cells overgrow in the top layers of the skin. Sometimes they are darker and may resemble a raised mole. The friction of the skin rubbing against itself causes them to develop. They are common in pregnant mothers and overweight people who have folds of skin. Older people ,type 2 diabetes patients, high cholesterol and/or human papillomavirus (HPV) also have it. Certain genetic disorders like Birt-Hogg-Dube (BHD) syndrome and tuberous sclerosis may have a predisposition to skin tags.

See a health care practitioner if a skin tag starts to increase in size, becomes painful and/or bleeds, or you suddenly develop multiple skin tags

Skin tags will shrink and may go away on their own after the mothers gives birth. For others who are stuck with them:

This is a demonstration of a simple technique to remove skin tags. It requires a good eye and a steady hand. I tied dental floss around the bottom of some skin tags. I did five. They slowly shrivel up due to lack of blood flow. Four of them were successfully eliminated. One of them lost the dental floss for some reason or another. If anyone would like me to treat their skin tags because they can't reach them or don't have anyone to do it for them. Let me know. Skin tags do grow back after removal. If you develop other skin tags in the same place after removal, you may just be prone to having them in that area.

Other methods include freezing them with liquid nitrogen or cauterizing them. Don't ever cut them off. They will bleed and infection may set in.
