What is a Skin Tag and Why it Appears?

Skin Tag is a soft, small, skin growth (bump) on the adult skin (mostly). They are harmless but can be annoying and occur mostly on neck, eyelids, groin folds, under breasts and armpits.

According to a report, approximately every 1 in 4 people will develop skin tags at any stage of their lives mostly after the age of 50. (1)

Well, there is no scientific reason why do we get skin tags but it has been seen that people who are overweight have more often skin tags.

However, Some studies have found that there could be a link between skin tags and low-risk forms of human papillomavirus (HPV) and doctors also believe that this is something which runs in genetics. (2)
