Hello! 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. I am getting married next year, so I would like to remove it before the wedding.

Are skin tags dangerous? How can I remove my skin tag? Please help me. Thank You!

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 and enjoy planning for your upcoming nuptials!

All my best,
Nurse Mary
