Wart and Tag Removal
Treatment Wart and Tag Removal
Just annoying, or something more? Warts and skin tags are both usually harmless growths that can appear on your skin. While these growths are generally benign, many men find them bothersome or embarrassing.
Skin is the body’s largest organ. Both skin tags and warts can occur almost anywhere on the body. While the cause of tags is unknown, warts are mostly caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and are transmitted by touch.
Be comfortable in your skin
Some skin tags may fall off on their own, but once formed, most are there to stay. Because warts are caused by a virus, your body can fight them off, but it can take months or even years for them to disappear. If warts or tags have become irritating or are a source of discomfort, they can easily be removed by a primary care provider.
