Skin tags are small, soft, benign skin growths that are often on a stalk. They are harmless, but can be very annoying. You may have one skin tag, or hundreds. It is likely that if you have no skin tags, you will most likely develop at least a few in your lifetime.

Skin tags often show up around the eyelids, neck, groin and armpits. One other common area for skin tag growth in women is around the breast or bra area. They basically can show up on any area of your body that has folds. A skin tag can be very bothersome if it is located around your bra strap or along your bra lines. They typically show up on people with diabetes as well as obese or overweight individuals. They also are more common starting after the age of 50.

If you’re a runner, the repetitive friction, tighter fitting running clothes and sports bras can contribute to the formation of skin tags. In addition, overweight women who may raise and lift their arms may develop skin tags due to the constant friction around the breast area.

While your skin tags are not dangerous, they can definetly be a nuisance as a woman who needs to wear a bra. The rubbing and friction caused can create bleeding, irritation and even infection. Medical Dermatology Specialists can accurately determine the cause of your skin tag and help you remove them. We also will help you prevent future ones as well.

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.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
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.
