A skin tag is a small fleshy-colored benign growth consisting that protrudes from the skin occurring more frequently during and after middle age.
They can be skin colour, or darker and can range from 1mm to 5mm in size. They are most commonly found in wrinkled skin or fold areas of the body such as the armpits, sides of the neck and in the groin area.
Skin tags are also found on the eyelids and around the eye. Skin tags are not harmful but can be annoying as they can get caught in jewellery and clothes.
