Skin tags, acrochordons, are usually flesh coloured and maybe a result of the repeated rubbing of skin. These benign skin lesions can appear in skin folds where clothing rubs the skin (e.g, underarms, groin, neck) and eyelids.
The surface can be smooth or irregular. It is often raised from skin surface and attached with a stalk to the skin.
They are mostly with no symptoms; however, may become irritated by shaving, clothing, or jewellery.
Topical numbing cream or injection is normally applied prior to treatment and it can often be removed using liquid nitrogen or by cauterization. Larger skin tags may need to be removed differently upon the assessment of Dr AK.
