This increase in skin tags is also associated with the development of growths, called polyps, within the large intestine that may eventually become cancerous.
Polydactyly may range from small skin tags on the side of the hands to fully formed extra fingers with bone, blood vessels, and muscle tissue.
Dr. Scholl's offers a freezing system that is easy to use on skin tags and many different types of warts.
There is a genetic component, too: people whose parents have many skin tags may be more likely to get them.
Removing skin tags is not necessary unless they are bothersome.
