Doctor Diagnosis Consultation on the Phone Atlanta GA

Skin tags are a common occurrence among people of all ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomical backgrounds. Being more of a nuisance than anything else, skin tags are tiny, benign growths that protrude or “hang” off the skin. Skin tags are connected to the skin by a thin stalk called a peduncle, and they are generally found in sites on the body where skin-to-skin friction occurs or where clothing rubs against the skin. The most common places to find a skin tag are on the neck, underarms, upper chest area, and the groin. Many people can go their whole lives with skin tags and not be disturbed by them. However, some skin tags are bothersome and/or cause feelings of self-consciousness, and in these cases, people often look for ways to remove them.

One quick search on Google will reveal “at home” ways to remove skin tags. While some of these methods may work, it is always recommended that you seek the expertise of a professional dermatologist for skin tag removal. Trying to remove a skin tag yourself with creams, lotions, tape, string, or a DIY removal kit is never advised. These methods can often cause harm to the skin, leading to infection and the need for medical intervention.

It is also important to note that while most skin tags are harmless, it is vital that you have a doctor confirm that your skin tag is benign before removal. An unsuccessful “at home” removal that goes wrong can lead to serious issues if the skin tag was not a benign growth.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, our team of skin experts understands the importance of feeling good in your skin. If you have a skin tag, or multiple skin tags, that you would like removed please contact our practice. Professional skin tag treatment is performed during an office visit, and there is generally very little in terms of post-treatment care.

If you have a skin tag that is painful, itchy, or that you are embarrassed about, please call Medical Dermatology Specialists today.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
