A skin tag may appear anywhere on the skin, especially the neck, chest, back, under the arms, under the breasts, or in the groin area. Women are more likely to develop skin tags than men due to the higher collagen stored. Skin tags may occur after weight gain and are more commonly seen in middle-aged or elderly adults.

Using cold temperature to excise the tag from skin surface
Using a chemical based substance to excoriate the affected skin surface and treat the root of the skin tag at the area
