What Are Skin Tags?

What Are Skin Tags?

A skin tag is a small piece of soft, hanging skin that may have a peduncle or stalk. They can appear anywhere on the body, but especially where skin rubs against other skin or clothing. Some people can go their entire lives without noticing they have skin tags; some really visit walk-in clinics in Guelph to inquire and ask for advice on treatments.

In some cases, skin tags may rub off or fall off painlessly. On the other hand, very large skin tags can burst under pressure. These skin tags, especially if found in areas where they may rub against something, such as clothing, jewelry or skin, may be removed through surgical procedures.

Arkell Walk-In Clinic & Arkell Pharmacy offers skin tag removal services performed by our professionals in our medical clinic in Ontario.

Removing a skin tag at home is not normally recommended due to a risk of bleeding and possible infection.

However, very small tags can be removed by tying dental floss or thin cotton thread around the base of the tag to cut off circulation to the tag.

There are also over-the-counter solutions available in pharmacies in Guelph, so if you or somebody you know is looking for a quick remedy, make sure to visit our site and talk to one of our medical professionals.
