Made up of loose collagen fibres and blood vessels, skin tags can affect both men and women. Pregnant women may be more likely to develop the growths due to changes in hormones. Other factors that may play a part in skin tag development include age, obesity, and suffering from type 2 diabetes.
Skin tags do not usually cause any pain or discomfort, and do not pose any threats to health. Even so, people often seek treatment to remove them for cosmetic reasons, and we do have options for skin tag removal here at Harpenden Skin Clinic.
If you relate to this condition but still feel unsure, at Harpenden Skin Clinic we are always here to help and advise patients on the best possible treatment journey performed by experienced clinicians.
