What are skin tags?

Skin tags appear in the folds of the skin and they consist of collagen and blood vessels covered by an outer layer of skin.

What causes skin tags?

It’s not yet clear why skin tags occur but studies have indicated that the human papillomavirus (HPV) may be a factor in the development of skin tags. Genetic factors and body weight can be factors also.

Can you remove skin tags on your own?

You should never attempt to remove skin tags by yourself, using nail clippers, scissors or other blades. Always seek professional advice first to avoid infections, scarring, bleeding and to ensure that the skin tags are not cancerous.

Do skin tags grow back once removed?

Skin tags do not grow back after removal. However, a skin tag could appear in the same area if you are prone to developing skin tags.

Should removing skin tags hurt?

No, the skin tag procedure is usually quick and painless.

How long does it take to heal after a skin tag removal?

It usually takes between 7 to 10 days for the skin to fully recover after the skin tag removal procedure.

Why do you get verrucas and warts?

Verrucas and warts occur as a result of the human papilloma virus. They are contagious and spread more easily if the skin is wet, which is why you can often catch them at a swimming pool or a SPA.

What is best for verruca removal?

Verrucas can be treated with topical medications over time. Your doctor may offer verruca removal procedures, such as cryotherapy (where the verruca is frozen and falls off on its own) or excision (where the doctor cuts out or scrapes the verruca in a sterile environment).

What happens if you leave a verruca?

Normally, the body will fight off the virus over time and the verruca will disappear on its own. The average lifespan of a verruca is two years, however, in some cases this can be several years or the body may not be able to clear them by itself.

Why do verrucas turn black?

Verrucas turn black when the blood supply to the verruca is cut and as the blood trapped within it gets old, it turns black (clots). This may be an indication that the virus is dying or the verruca has been traumatised.

Should I pick, pull or cut a wart?

No. Picking, pulling, rubbing, scratching or trying to cut a wart yourself can worsen the problem and even spread the virus to other parts of your body.
