Frequently confused with warts,skin tags are little flesh or brown-coloured growths that hang off the skin. Although common and harmless, many people opt to have them removed, particularly if they catch on clothing.
They are typically just a few millimetres in size, although some can be as big as 4-5cm. While usually found on the neck, around the armpits, the groin, and under the breasts, sometimes they are found on the eyelids and even under the buttocks.
Skin tags are easily removed. They can be burnt or frozen off just like warts, or removed surgically, and the treatment is quick and requires no downtime. Mr Coady is experienced in skin conditions and will offer you helpful and reassuring advice during your consultation.
