Ask Us Anything: Can Skin Tags Be Removed?

“Within the last 2 months, I have had skin tags appear in vaginal area. I have heard of many causes of this, but it is a huge concern to me as to why they just started to appear. Can they be removed, and will they return? Any advice would be appreciated.”

Dr. Ali Ghomi Responds:

"Skin tags" are benign skin lesions that can occur anywhere on the body, including external genitalia and the vagina. These small flaps of tissue that hang off of the skin are most common in women and are generally found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under the breasts or in the groin area.

The exact cause remains unclear.

They may resolve spontaneously and almost never progress to a serious condition.

Skin tags are rarely painful. If the skin tags are symptomatic and bothersome, they can be easily removed as an office procedure. They may be cut off with a scalpel or scissors, frozen off with cryosurgery or burned off with electrosurgery.

There is no evidence that a skin tag would return once removed. However, some people are more prone to skin tags than others and may need to have them periodically removed.

Skin tags can be removed by dermatologists, family physicians, internal medicine physicians and gynecologists.
