Skin tags

Is there a way to prevent skin tags from forming on the face? If not, is there a way to get rid of them easily?

Re: Skin tags

Hi there,
True skin tags are most common in the creases eg neck, armpits etc. It's unusual to get multiple skin tags on the face, so it would be worth seeing a doctor to confirm the diagnosis.

Some people are just prone to skin tags, but there are some associations such as pregnancy, being overweight and insulin resistance.
