Skin tags happen when clusters of blood vessels and collagen become trapped in thicker top layers of skin.
As the blood vessels and collagen are trapped, extra skin cells grow and form a skin tag, they usually develop when skin to skin contact occurs due to the rubbing eg, under the arms.
When Should I have Skin Tags Removed?
- If the skin tag becomes irritated caused by rubbing on clothes or jewellery
- If the skin tag interferes with every day activities
- Causes significant discomfort
