Often you notice a small piece of skin hanging from your neck or the underarms; this is what a skin tag is. You can think of a skin tag as wart or harmless tumor or simply the overgrowth of the cells of the epidermis. Most of the times they are the color of the flesh and sometimes they are brown in color. Their size varies from a few millimeters to 5 cm.
You will usually find them on the areas like neck, armpits, under the breasts, groin and even in the folds of the eyelids. Medically they are termed as acrochordons and are easily removable with the help of a minor surgery, but we will get to this part later.
