skin tag on neckSkin tags are tiny areas of skin that have created a loose piece of tissue that protrudes from the surface. 

They vary in size from a few millimetres to a larger version that can be a few centimetres known as a papilloma that often dangles from the skin.

Skin tags on the body commonly occur in axilla underarms or groin areas. Those in the underarms and groin often occur due to the friction of skin rubbing on skin which causes the skin tags to grow. They can become numerous in number over time and grown quite large. They often have their own blood supply so can bleed a lot if people attempt DIY removal which is not advised.

Body skin tags are easily removed with costs from only £160.

The removal of skin tags is simple and quick. Most require a medial professional to remove so it is done safely and without any risk of infection or recurrence.

Genital Skin Tags

Skin tags can also occur in the embarrassing and sensitive anal and vaginal areas. See separate pages for information on anal skin tags and vaginal skin tags.

Treating Skin Tags at Home

Home remedies that include tying a piece of cotton thread around the base of skin tags in the hope they fall off can often lead to infection and leave the root so are best avoided. Destructive creams that are often acid based and other DIY skin tag removal can lead to bad scarring in some cases and we would advise patients to seek proper medical advice before embarking on these treatments.

Before & After

Skin tag removal is also very effective where tags appear under the arms where the skin rubs together

Skin tags are common in the groin area where skin rubs. Although harmless, removal is usually preferable for aesthetic and comfort reasons.

I had a lot of choices for mole removal, but the customer service I received on the phone steered me to this clinic. My mole was removed on the day of my consultation by Dr Britt Vardy. She was very professional and answered all my questions and concerns. Very pleased, and looking forward to the result once it has healed!
