Are you looking into skin tag
Skin tags are little growths of skin, or tumors that often look like a piece of cauliflower and are attached to your body by a stalk or a peduncle, and can grow on some of the strangest parts of your body – your face, your neck, under your arms, eyelids etc.
These maddening little stalks of skin often appear under women’s breasts and around their pubic and anal areas – places that may be difficult to get to for
These growths are usually considered harmless and don’t normally turn malignant – not turning into a cancer if not treated.

One or two growths may not be much of a problem, but if clusters develop on highly visible body parts, the sufferer may want to get them removed. I know that, in my own case, I only developed one large tag. But, this one was large and located in such an inconvenient and undesirable place I knew I wanted it removed. It was under my arm, towards my back – if I wore a sweater, it would sometimes catch on the fabric and bleed – sometimes ruining a perfectly good sweater with a blood stain!
Others with skin tags on highly visible places – faces, arms, bust lines, etc. may consider them a nuisance and will remove, or have them removed immediately.
Skin tags on eyelids may be considered a type of visual impairment. Those who have these growths on their eyelids may want to see a specialist, as removing them from one’s eyelids can be tricky at best. Don’t…
