Skin tags part of getting older. A few small skin tags generally go unnoticed although multiple skin tags can be a cosmetic concern.
A typical skin tag is easy to spot. However, a skin tag can be confused a seborrhoeic keratosis, solitary neurofibroma or pedunculated mole. Thankfully, all of these alternate diagnoses are harmless so it doesn’t matter.
Larger skin tags may certainly be a nuisance if they catch on clothing – most likely in the groin, upper thighs, upper arms, or near the bra or bra strap. Traumatised skin tags may bleed.
