Skin tags, known medically as acrochordons, are growths of skin that most commonly appear where there are folds of skin such as the armpits, neck, groin, and eyelids. Skin tags may look like stalks with fleshy bulbs at the ends. The growths are benign and usually painless, although they may be unsightly or get caught on jewelry or clothing. If skin tags are bothersome, they may be removed surgically or by freezing with liquid nitrogen.
