Dr Rui Fernandez, Dermatologis
I’ve developed several small flaps of skin under my arms. My doctor says they’re skin tags. What, if anything, do I need to do about them? Aman Sharma, Bangalore Skin tags are benign growths on the skin, that usually occur in middle-aged people in the folds of the body. Small lesions can be snipped off with fine scissors, frozen with liquid nitrogen or destroyed by electro cauterisation.
