How to recognize a Skin Tag?
They are easily distinguishable from other skin growths like moles or keloids as they hang off the skin with a thin peduncle. Their size can vary from anywhere between 2 mm to 7 cm. They can either be soft and round or wrinkly and deformed.
Most skin tags appear to be skin-colored, but they can become blackish due to hyperpigmentation or lack of blood supply.
What Causes Skin Tags to Grow?
So far, the exact causes of skin tags haven’t been identified, but as they commonly erupt in the skin folds, it is assumed that friction may be a potential cause.
HPV virus may also play a role in developing skin tags. People with type-2 diabetes who have higher insulin resistance also have a higher chance of getting them.
The weight gain and hormonal changes caused by pregnancy can also promote skin tag. They can also be assumed to be a genetic condition as multiple family members are seen to have them but in varying shapes and sizes.
