Skin tags can affect people in many ways. They can be unsightly, hurt of bleed if they catch on clothing or jewellery and may cause some difficulties when shaving. It is important to point out that there is no health issue associated with skin tags.

Your Questions about skin tags answered
WHAT ARE SKIN TAGS?
Skin tags are small brown or skin-coloured growths on the skin. The range in size form a few millimeters to a few centimetres and protrude from the skin.
Skin tags are often incorrectly diagnosed as warts. They usually occur on areas where the skin rubs a lot. Eg. Neck, armpits, groin or eyelids
HOW ARE SKIN TAGS REMOVED?
Anaesthetic is applied either as a cream or small injection
The tags are removed quite simply and with virtually no discomfort
WHAT TREATMENT IS USED?
They may be removed by ‘snip’ or ‘shave’ excision using a minor surgery kit
They may also be removed using a ‘hyfrecator’ which uses electricity to quickly dehydrate the skin tags (the skin tags fall off a few days later)
WHAT HAPPENS AFTERWARDS?
A small white scar will remain after the treatment, but the skin tags are removed permanently.
This treatment will not prevent new ones from forming
