Why Do Skin Tags Form?

Skin tags are small growths that protrude from the surface of the skin. They are not a major medical concern, but they can produce some discomfort and can take away from the natural beauty of your appearance.

These growths form as a result of genetics. They also appear as a result of constant skin-on-skin rubbing. This is why skin tags commonly form in areas where the skin forms natural creases and constant skin rubbing occurs.

Skin tags most commonly appear in the following areas:

  • Underarms
  • Eyelids
  • Neck
