Skin tags are common, benign, flesh-colored skin growths.
Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are small, benign growths that hang from the skin and are common in most people. These growths are usually small, flesh-colored, and soft, often appearing in areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, underarms, or groin. They can also occur on the face, eyelids, or under the breasts.
While skin tags are typically harmless, they can be unsightly and cause discomfort or irritation, especially if they are located in areas that experience friction. Fortunately, skin tags are easily treated, and many people choose to have them removed for cosmetic or comfort reasons.
