skin tags

I am 68.
I seem to be developing a number of skin tags on my neck, which are very irritating.
Is there anything I can do?

Re: skin tags

Skin tags are harmless growths on the skin that can look a little bit like warts. They tend to occur in areas where the skin experiences increased friction such as the neckline, under the arms and under the breasts.

If they are bothering you, they can be removed in clinic by snip excision, burning (cautery) or freezing (cryotherapy). Occasionally these procedures can leave you with small marks on the skin.
