The dermatological features of skin tags

Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, papillomas or (more correctly) fibroepithelial polyps, are small, brown or flesh-coloured flaps of skin that commonly appear under the arms, at the top of the inner thigh or in the groin, around the neck, or on the eyelids. Many of these areas tend to be hot and moist, or they are areas where clothes may rub.
