Q: I've developed skin tags now that I'm pregnant. What's causing this and how can I get rid of them?
A: Skin tags are small, floppy growths of skin that can appear anywhere on the body, but tend to be found on your neck, breasts, or armpits. They're most likely due to fluctuating hormone levels during pregnancy. Skin tags are totally harmless, but they can become irritated by friction, which happens most often in the armpit or groin. Unlike discoloration or some other pregnancy skin issues, skin tags don't disappear after your baby arrives, but they can be easily removed by a dermatologist.
