A condition of many small, benign skin lesions on that face. Although they may be unsightly, skin tags are always harmless. Unlike moles they are not a potential sign of skin cancer and do not usually cause any discomfort or pain. Depending on their location, however, skin tags can snag against items of jewellery or clothing or on seat belts and may end up bleeding as a result. Skin tags are more likely to develop after middle age. Some people develop many – while others go through life without any at all.
