                                            how skin tags form on the skin and their causes.

                                             Skin tags have been a problem for people even during
                                             the ancient times. Although major steps have been take
                                             by medical researchers into find effective ways of
                                             preventing and curing the condition, much still remains in
                                             understand what cause the condition in the first place. It
has been said that if the skin becomes directly exposed to the sun, skin tags will appear. The
ultraviolet radiation messes up with the skin's DNA, causing the skin tags to appear on them. But
there are still gray areas on the credibility of the sun and its UV rays as a cause of skin tags. After
all, babies develop skin tags and they do not get exposed to the sun. There is also the fact that
skin tags mostly appear in parts of the body that are hidden from the sun, such as the armpits and
even around the anus.

Perhaps there are reasons other than sun exposure that cause the skin tissues to undergo a
mutation and result to the growth of these skin tags. Skin tags are painless when the start
developing, and will remain as such through their growth periods. At some point, skin tags stop
growing, and this is referred to as the stagnation point. They will remain at that size. It is purely for
aesthetic reasons that people want to get rid of skin tags. They become particularly bothersome
when they grow to a large and uncomfortable size. He will end up constantly touching the and
rubbing the skin tags, and soon there could be bleeding. A qualified and certified skin specialist
would have to be sought for his diagnosis and professional medical opinion.

How to treat the skin tags will depend on several factors. The first step in dealing with the
condition is a complete diagnosis by a dermatologist to ascertain that there is not cancerous
element hidden within the condition. The dermatologist will analyze the stage of your skin tag
condition. At the same time, he will also make an analysis of your skin because this is also an
important factor. He will use these information in making recommendations and giving you your
medical options in getting rid of the skin tags. The skin tags could also be applied directly with
certain creams and similar products that will dry them out until they fall off, or you could simply go
under the knife and have them surgically removed. The creams could either be manufactured
products or you could prepare them directly from home. Once you have a clear idea about your
skin tag condition and how to deal with it, you will not have a difficult time looking for these creams
and home remedies.
