They are often found in areas where the skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, armpits, groin and under the breasts, and are more common in people who are overweight or increasing in age. They are very common, not harmful and do not cause any pain or discomfort and can range in size from a few millimeters to a few centimeters.
Most people choose to have them removed as they do not like the cosmetic appearance. Here at Skin Sense GP Clinic, we offer the removal of skin tags as well as other growths, such as moles and birthmarks, using our PLEX R technology. We cover many areas in Essex including Brentwood, Basildon, Billericay, Braintree, Grays and Harlow.
