Skin tags, those small, benign growths that often appear on the neck, armpits, or groin area, might be harmless, but they can be unsightly and sometimes cause discomfort. If you’re considering removing skin tags, here’s a guide to help you understand the process.

Understanding Skin Tags

Skin tags are soft growths that hang off the skin. They’re typically flesh-colored or slightly darker and vary in size from a few millimeters to a centimeter or more. While generally harmless, they can become irritated or inflamed due to friction with clothing or jewelry.

Methods of Removal

Skin tags can be removed using several methods, including:

  • Cryotherapy: Freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen, though it’s less effective.
  • Excision: Cutting the skin tag off with a scalpel or scissors, which is very effective.
  • Electrosurgery: Burning the skin tag off with an electric current, also very effective.
