Skin tags are caused by a genetics, i.e. a family trait predisposition for developing them. The usual locations are in fold areas, such as around the eyes, neck, armpits, under the breasts and groin.
They are generally genetic. They can occur during pregnancy and in obesity.
Skin tags are hereditary. Multiple eruptive skin tags can be associated with insulin resistance and diabetes.
We really have no idea what causes skin tags. One day maybe...
Skin tags, as simple as they seem, are benign and the cause is unknown. Visit your dermatologist for more information and treatment options.
