Skin tags are soft, loose, and slightly wrinkled outgrowths on skin. They are also known as “skin tabs”. The medical term for a skin tag is “acrochordon”. A skin tag is basically a flesh coloured tissue that hangs from skin by a small stalk. They are completely harmless and many people are found to have some of these. Although anyone can have a skin tag, many mothers develop them during or after pregnancy. Some females are very prone to tags and have many of them.
