Skin tags (also known as acrochordon, cutaneous skin tag or fibroepithelial polyp) are common benign skin growths which form primarily in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the groin, neck, eyelid, or armpit. Skin tags  typically develop on parts of the body where friction occurs. Although these growths are harmless, they can become a nuisance and many people have them removed for cosmetic reasons. SKIN Cosmetic Dermatology offers several options for removing these growths.
