Skin Tags, Millia and More.
Skin Tags are very common and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a neck like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, groin, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
These are tiny, white, hard, round, spots containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry, dehydrated skin.
Although these are classified as a part of the wart family they are not contagious and very common on the head, face and body. Associated with increasing age, mature skins, sun damage they also have genetic links. Growing up to 2 inches across they are often dry, crusty and considered cosmetically unattractive.
Bright red, superficial vascular blemishes these are often dome shaped or slightly raised and are frequently found on the midriff. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are often more common in men than women.
