Hi, another fun development in the things that wear out in one's bod... Just in last couple of weeks - lots of skin tags are popping up. Don't image that would be similar to the angioma growths? These are pure white and not very big. I used to get them when I was an infant, apparently, only they would grow until lopped off or tied off. Do not appear to spread, just appear in different spots. For several years, have also had tiny little fatty lumps in lower body just above knees, progressively appearing almost up to waist but mainly on outer thighs. The skin tags are on inner thighs. Don't recall seeing anything on skin tags in the forum - has anyone got a link or any ideas? Vaguely recall something to do with hormonal imbalances? but doc hasn't picked up on anything specific & my last naturopath left town! thanks!

My boyfriend has lots of skin tags on his neck. I just thought they were a genetic thing, defiently eastern european at least his ancestry is of that region. His doctor said there wasnt much you could do other than burn them off but there are so many on his neck that it would just be a real big pain and wouldnt stop them from coming back. My boyfriend has learned to live with them. If you have a parrot (African Grey) like he does you can have him sit on your shoulder and then occasionally the parrot will rip a tag off your neck and it will be painful for a second but then you won't notice that the parrot is chewing on the tag untill a few minutes later. At least thats what happens to him.
P.S. His parrot is a real stinker, too bad he is so cute and knows it, and too bad we will likely be inheriting the bird.
I have heard the same thing about skin tags & polyps in the other areas of the body can also mean colon as well. I get them as I am getting older, & many are where clothes irritate the same areas constantly. My dr. agreed that is where many grow.

Termed a 'Cutaneous Papilloma' or an 'Acrochordon'. They are considered 'benign tumours'. I thought 'skin tags' were brownish or reddish? At least mine are...
In terms of connection to Polyps - do you have many pimples/freckles on the shoulders?

Hello Herr Schlüggell, The white lumps grow to a point & either self exit, or I help them. They don't seem to spread from original site. Skin tags so far are pale, look white to me, and tiny. I'm not messing with them! I have a few red angiomas, some come up & go away but have maybe 3 permanent ones. Have hardly any freckles (some on forearms/calves where most sun, but more pale than brown), only get sweat pimples occasionally on face or front of neck/top of chest.
Polyp stuff sounds scarey - think colon ok as iris indicator looks ok.
Think I'll do some more googling... thanks

Well, don't want to frighten anyone but as a colon cancer survivor, I no longer have skin tags (except a few oldies), but I used to have a lot of them. Had them burnt and more would reappear.. very interesting....
I understand there is also a diabetes or at least unstable blood sugar connection. I had them when I had a bad blood sugar patch in life (decades ago), and noticed that my mother developed them when she developed late onset diabetes.
I used to have several skin tags around my neck in particular. However, once I started drinking my smoothie that also had 1 tablespoon flax seed oil and 1 talbespoon of lecithin, the skin tags disappeared. It probably took a couple months and it has been months since I have had any. My African Grey parrot also liked them. Sure glad they are gone.
I continue to have at least 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil daily whether it is in a smoothie or as part of the dressing for my salad.
The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself. Good health to you & yours.
Hopefully, I am back now to start putting in my 2 cents again. I'll start here!
To me, it sounds like people are getting 2 things mixed up: skin tags and milia.
Skin tags look just like they sound. They are tiny little "tags" or "flaps" of skin that pop up here and there, usually where your skin rubs another part of your body. They are usually the exact same color as your skin (maybe a little darker) and sort of stick out like little petals. I get them under my arms and on my inner thighs up near my torso. I have always dealt with them myself by just nipping them off with cuticle nippers. No biggie. The last time they popped up between my thighs, I had to go to the dermatologists office where one of his techs, basically, cut them off in the same way. Very annoying because I had a lot of them at that time, but that's all that is ever done to them. No anethesia is necessary, just nip 'em off.
This is a picture that shows EXACTLY what the skin tags that I get look like:
Milia are something else, and I also have them. They tend to be genetic and they are little hard bumps the appear to be either darker or lighter than your skin. African Americans seem to be bothered by this a little bit more than us lighter folk (at least that's what my dermatologist said) and it seems to be mostly genetic. While they can pop up anywhere, they are commonly found around the eyes, on the cheeks and neck. You can exfoliate to get rid of them, but for me that takes too long. I just sterilize a pin or needle and pick them out. They tend to migrate up to the top of the skin and if you wait until then, they just sort of pop out. It is a little, tiny hard ball which is just hardened skin stuff for lack of a better explaination.
Neither of these conditions are worrisome and both appear to be genetic. Women tend to get more skin tags after a pregnancy and as they get old, which might be hormonal. I've never heard of them spontaneously disappearing, so that makes me think that you might not be dealing with skin tags.
