Ask the Nurse

I am 22 years old and I have a skin tag on my left hip. It is not painful, but it is in an uncomfortable area and really bothers me. Are skin tags dangerous? How can I remove my skin tag?

Skin tags are common and can be easily removed in your family doctor’s or dermatologist’s office. They are not harmful, but can be annoying, especially if they are on the bra line or underwear line.

Make an appointment to see your physician.
