Overview
A skin tag is a benign and tiny pouch of skin that stays connected to the skin under through a thin stalk. These look like hanging bits of skin and occur specifically where there is skin-to-skin or cloth-to-skin friction. A general surgeon is the specialist you need for removing skin tags.
Skin Tag Symptoms
There are no specific skin tag symptoms to point out. These bumps on the skin can range in size from being pin-sized to as big as grapes. They have the same color like your skin or a shade darker. Call on your doctor if you see any abnormality in the skin tags.
Skin Tag Causes
The friction between clothes and skin or skin on skin is the main skin tag causes. Since skin friction is a major cause of skin tags, overweight or obese people are more likely to get it. The following are the common spots for skin tags.

The underarms
Upper chest
Neck
Eyelids
Groin folds
