S-76: What Causes Us To Have Skin Tags?

What causes us to have skin tags? 

Possibly genetics (unclear by experts) but most likely caused by friction. Skin tags are usually the color of your skin but can be red or dark if blood supply is cut off.  Aging can  play a big part in skin tags due to hormonal changes.  Sometimes those who are overweight or women who are pregnant (hormonal changes) may experience these small skin growths. Individuals with Crohn’s disease and type ll diabetes may have an increase in skin tags. The use of steroids may also encourage the growth of skin tags.  A member of my family accidentally pulled off his skin tag when it caught to a thread on his shirt.  Lucky for him no infection but other than that skin tags are permanent until you have them removed. There really isn’t a medical reason to remove them so most insurances won’t cover the expense.  If it is irritating your skin then speak with your private physician.

In our next episode we will concentrate on:- “How will my skin tags be removed and will it hurt?”
