The hallmark symptom of skin tags is a growth on the skin. The tag (growth) is generally small, although it may sometimes be up to half an inch or even more in diameter.

The skin tag may have a narrow stalk (peduncle)
It is usually located in skin folds and creases, such as: Eyelids Axillae (armpits) Under the breasts Groin Upper chest Neck
The skin tag may be: Smooth in appearance Irregular in appearance It is usually flesh colored or slightly brownish It is common for skin tags to appear in groups. They may become stuck on jewelry, are shaved in error, and are agitated by clothing. Women who shave their armpits should be careful not to shave or cut larger skin tags that may be located there. Treatment options for skin tags
As skin tags are usually harmless, people have them removed for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. Sometimes large ones, especially in areas where they may rub against something, such as clothing, jewelry or skin, may be removed because the area becomes frequently irritated. An individual may have a large skin tag removed from his face or under her arms in order to make shaving easier.
The following procedures may be used to remove skin tags: Cauterization - the skin tag is burned off using electrolysis (heat is used to remove them) Electrosurgery Cryosurgery - the skin tag is frozen off using a probe containing liquid nitrogen Ligation - the blood supply to the skin tag is interrupted Excision - the skin tag is removed with a scalpel (it is cut out) These procedures should only be performed by a dermatologist (specialist skin doctor)
Skin tags on the eyelid - if the skin tag is very close to the eyelid margin, the procedure should be done by an experienced dermatologist with years of training.
New York Dermatology by Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Gary Rothfeld is a board certified NYC Dermatologist with a New York City office in Manhattan, New York providing expert skin care, dermatology, and cosmetic dermatology services. A Park Avenue practice with an international reputation in general, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology. I personally see every new patient who visits our office. I am not just a physician, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. My goal is, quite simply, to provide the type of dermatology care which I would seek for my own family. This is a very important point, since physicians often use the phrase "Doctor's Doctor" to refer to those individuals who typically are selected by physicians themselves for personal care. I am confident that my practice fully meets that definition. This is the type of 5-star care and service that our patients expect, deserve and receive. I treat every patient the way I would want to be treated: with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their hair and skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options including a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results
Dr Gary sees every patient himself and believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.
A significant percentage of my Hair Loss,Dermatology and Cosmetic Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed on listening to the medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further detailed or careful examination and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists. I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients. This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient during the consult the cosmetic procedures will probably not work.
