Skin tags are very common, harmless, small, soft skin growths. They can grow almost anywhere on the body but are common where skin creases such as on the eyelids, neck, armpits. Removing a skin tag does not cause more to grow. We used Electrocauterization, which is a process in which an instrument is heated electrically and then applied to the skin tag to burn its cells and remove it permanently. The process is conducted by a qualified and trained professional. It is quick and only moderately uncomfortable.
