Understanding Skin Tags

Obesity and being moderately overweight (even temporary increases) dramatically increase the chances of having skin tags. Normal weight individuals with larger breasts are also more prone to skin tags under their breasts.

Obesity and skin tags are connected by means of extra areas of friction and hormonal changes in the body that occur due to weight gain. First, obesity may be associated with hyperinsulinemia which is associated with increase of growth tissues. A similar case among obese people is the increase of leptin that stimulates the growth factors and rapid increase of epithelial cells in the epidermis.

Except for the cosmetic appearance, skin tags essentially cause no physical pain or discomfort. These tiny skin growths generally cause symptoms when they are repeatedly irritated. Cosmetic removal for unsightly appearance is perhaps the most common reason skin tags are removed. Occasionally, a tag may require removal because it has become irritated and red from bleeding (hemorrhage) or black from twisting and dying of the skin tissue (necrosis). Sometimes, they may become snagged by clothing, jewelry, pets, or seatbelts, causing pain or discomfort. Overall these are very benign growths that have no cancer (malignant) potential.

Occasionally, a tag may spontaneously fall off without any pain or discomfort. This may occur after the tag has twisted on itself at the stalk base, interrupting the blood flow to the tag.

Because skin tags are benign, treatment is a matter of personal preference, although most persons do feel better after the tag is removed, especially if it:

  • Becomes irritated or infected due to repeated rubbing against clothes or jewelry
  • Causes discomforts, such as large skin tags on the inside of your thighs that are rubbed as you walk. Noticeable, like on your face, such tags on the eyelids or ears
  • Is not benign, such as those linked to squamous cell carcinoma or a basal cell carcinoma, which is rare but not unheard of The most frequent indication for skin tag removal is for cosmetic purposes. A skin tag may be removed if the patient prefers to have the procedure done.
  • It is painless however you may experience minor redness or swelling during the treatment.
  • The radio wave skin tag removal surgery takes only a few minutes and has a fast effect.
  • The recovery time for skin tag removal is one to two weeks. However, the skin may appear slightly reddish during the treatment

Generally, skin tags are not bothersome. They appear in areas where the skin folds or bears considerable friction like the armpits, neck, and thighs. They are a simple accumulation of extra cells that are painless. More often than not, skin tags are not cancerous. However, there are many cases where the skin tags can hurt and be bothersome. In such a situation, you may need special treatment to get them removed.

FAQ

Answering your most frequently asked questions.

Several DIY skin tag removal techniques are currently available online. You risk developing an infection, an ugly scar, and other issues if you attempt to remove the tag yourself. It might also be quite painful. A board-certified dermatologist at Steady Care Medical is your best option for removing skin tags. To remove skin tags, these dermatologists utilise only sterile, secure tools.

The healing process begins right away, although the length of time it takes to recover completely varies. The skin typically heals completely in a minimum of 2-3 weeks.

Doctors at Steady Care Medical follow a simple process that can be done while you’re still awake. It just takes 15 to 30 minutes to remove a skin tag. Following the skin tag removal procedure, it typically takes the new wound 5–10 days to stop hurting, followed by 2–3 weeks for it to fully recover.

You can’t stop ageing or genetics from playing a role in the development of skin tags.  If skin tags impact your quality of life, Steady Care Medical can assess them and get rid of them for you.

Here are some ways in which you can treat your skin tag with home remedies:

Tea Tree Oil: The skin tag should be treated with a drop of tea tree oil and bandaged. Repeat each day until it disappears.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the skin tag, and secure it with a bandage. Leave it on overnight and repeat as needed.

Dental Floss or Thread: Put a small piece of dental floss or thread around the skin tag’s base and tie it securely. This stops the flow of blood, and within a few days, it falls off.

Baking Soda and Castor Oil: To make a paste, combine castor oil and baking soda. It should be applied to the skin tag, wrapped in a bandage, and repeated every day.

Banana Peel: Overnight, cover the skin tag with a small piece of banana peel. Bandage it. Leave it in place. This could take several weeks.
