If you look closely at one of them, you may see a thin stalk connecting it to your skin. This depends on the skin tag s size. Thin stalks are also the reason why skin tags look like hanging pinches of skin.

Skin tags have a fibro-vascular core which can also come with some fat cells. Skin tags form first at areas of your skin that usually forms creases like the area on your neck, armpit, and groin.

Causes of skin tags are mainly connected with the friction produced by skin to skin rubbing. The more often the skin rubs with each other, the chance to develop more skin tags.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What would you recommend to treat skin tags on an eleven year old?
    First, we don’t know if they are actually skin tags. They are along the middle of his abdomen and are spreading rapidly. At one point he mentioned one popped. A rash occasionally occurs around them and they sometimes itch.

    Are these skin tags? If not, what are they? And lastly, how do we get rid of them?

    • ANSWER:
      Jane – What you are describing as “spreading rapidly” does NOT sound like skin tags, but is more likely to be something called molluscum contagiosum, a viral condition. This is an unfortunate name, because these harmless viral bumps are really not contagious from one person to another. Kids often get them in various places such as the chest or neck. They sometimes get a little bit red, but they always go away even if left untreated. The average duration is a little on the long side, though, about nine months. Because most treatments involve pain and multiple sessions, doctors usually advise parents of young children who have them to just let them be until they disappear on their own. If you want confirmation, visit either a dermatologist MD or pediatrician.

      Good luck.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of skin tags on neck?
    I had a few skin tags prior to my pregnancy but after becoming pregnant it spread and I got more. Now after ny pregnancy I still have them. I heard about tying a sting around them and they fall off but what about the small ones that I cannot tie. Is there anything I can do or use to get rid of them? Any suggestions are appreciated.

  3. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of a boil that keeps filling up with blood?
    I was recently pregnant and developed a boil on my inner thigh/butt area and it constantly fills up and then drains blood on its own within a few days. It will be flat and then fill up again within a matter of weeks and drain and bleed again. This has been going on for about 6 months. My doctor said it was a skin tag but I’m sure skin tags don’t fill with blood, become painful, then drain and refill. It has also spread to the opposite thigh and another boil does the same thing, but not nearly as much. I’m sick of repeating the process and covering it with bandaids and ointment. How can I make it go away for good? Without popping with a needle? What is it?

    • ANSWER:
      Boils are caused by staph. Causes are diabetes, being overweight, immune system problems, poor nutrition, and poor hygiene.

      For pain, wet a washcloth with hot water. Make it as hot as you can stand it. Hold it on the area. Always soak it in warm water. Take hot baths often, but not too hot. Use compresses. This will decrease pain and draw pus to the surface. Do not pop it with a needle. When the boil starts draining, wash it with a gentle antibacterial soap. It will eventually burst after repeated soakings. If you let it happen naturally, there won’t be any pain. Then apply ointment and a bandaid. (Don’t do this as the first step.)

      To prevent boils, wash clothes and bedding well and regularly. Clean and treat minor wounds. Good hygiene. Stay healthy!

      If none of this works, go to a dermatologist.

  6. QUESTION:
    What happens when you pop a Genital Wart?
    Is it like a stalk growing into the skin such as a skin tag? that you literally have to tear off? or does it pop/break more like a pimple?

    I am wondering because I have what I believe to be some other weird shit above my penis. just trying to relax about it though.

    • ANSWER:
      nothing happens! you cant get rid of genital warts by that way!
      poping them you can only spread them forward!
      genital warts are caused by HPV virus! this virus will always be in your body – you cant get rid of it!
      but you can get rid of genital warts! genital warts appears when your immune system is weak! and disappears when your immune system is strong because your own body gets rid of them!
      so you must build up your immune system! eat more healthy food, more vitamins and do more sport activities!
      also you can try some herbal treatment!

      in that case Wartrol is a good (probably the best) product that gets rid of genital warts and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! of course if you will use full course (5 months – if I remember correctly).

      It worked for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=749165

      good luck!

  7. QUESTION:
    Can a child get genital warts without sex and can original wart be present for 10 years without spreading?
    I’ve had these 2 soft skin, tissue-like bumps under my foreskin (closer to the top) that look like open circles about 1mm in diameter and 1cm apart from each other on the same horizontal line. I noticed them when I was about 12-13 and they haven’t gone away. This is before any sexual contact of any kind. There has never been any irritation or pus or anything. I have a feeling they are just skin tags or cuts from masturbating or something that left scars.I never really thought much of them until I started having sex. Any idea? They’re not pearly penile “palpules”. Also they have always been in the same spot, never gone away and came back, or spread at all. Just same two soft skin-like bumps since I first noticed them. Any idea what they are?
    They are also the colour of my foreskin

    • ANSWER:
      I would consult a doctor.
