Today’s blog is all about skin tags especially around your neck and your armpits or other areas on the body. A skin tag is a small, soft, flesh-colored benign skin growth, often on a stalk. Skin tags are probably the single most common bump on adult skin. Skin tags are harmless but can be an annoying skin problem. It tends to occur on the eyelids, neck, armpits, and under breasts.
Causes of skin tags
The skin tag is a tiny little benign tumor caused by a growth factor and insulin. That’s why, in diabetic or pre-diabetic times, people are starting to get these skin tags around their necks or on their armpits.
Some people have them, and they don’t know what to do with them. The number of skin tags is increasing with age. They are not cancerous and can not be spread to others. Removal of skin tags is considered cosmetic unless they are infected or bleeding. Luckily, skin tags rarely bleed or become infected. They’re flesh-colored, and if you pull on one, you’ll see that a thin stalk is attached to the skin. This is an example of a skin tag that has a skin tag.
This is an example of a skin tag that has dead tissue at its tip, has recently bled and would be removed in the VCare Clinics.
As skin tags are usually harmless, removal is normally for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. Large skin tags, especially in areas where they may rub against something, such as clothing, jewelry or skin, may be removed due to irritation.
Removing a large skin tag from the face or under the arms can make shaving easier.
The skin tag is burned off using VCare’s cauterization electrolysis
Electrocauterization (or electrocautery) is often used in surgery to remove unwanted or harmful tissue. This helps reduce or stop bleeding during surgery or after an injury. It is a safe procedure.
