Pulled off a skin tag - eww!

Ugh - maybe this is TMI but I just accidentally pulled off a skin-tag on my upper thigh! I thought it was just an ingrown hair and I started picking at it and then I ripped it off - eWW! this is the first time i have EVER done something like this and now its a little would but it won't stop bleeding. Yeah, this is gross - anyone ever do this? Will I need to worry about infection or anything? just eww.

Signed,
Officially a Moron hehe

What is a skin tag?

A skin tag is a common, acquired benign skin growth that looks like a small piece of hanging skin. Skin tags are often described as bits of skin- or flesh-colored tissue that projects from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk. They typically occur in characteristic locations including the neck, underarms, eyelids, and under the breasts (especially where underwire bras rub directly beneath the breasts). Although skin tags may vary somewhat in appearance, they are usually smooth or slightly wrinkled and irregular, flesh-colored or slightly more brown, and hang from the skin by a small stalk. Early or beginning skin tags may be as small as a flattened pinpoint-sized bump around the neck. Some skin tags may be as large as a big grape.


Where do skin tags occur?

Skin tags can occur almost anywhere there is skin. However, favorite areas for tags are the eyelids, neck, armpits, upper chest (particularly under the female breasts), and groin folds. Tags are typically thought to occur in characteristic locations where skin rubs against skin or clothing.

They tend to happen in pregnancy also. Thankfully, this is one side effect I have managed to escape 6 times.

ewww

do you have a styptic(sp?) pencil, like the kind used to stop shaving nicks? Depending on the size of the cut it might help.

It stopped bleeding!! I was pregnant about 4.5 years ago (I miscarried at 8 weeks) but I dont know if that would contribute to an upper inner thigh skin tag?

I have a few really small ones... I once scratched one on my back off by accident. It bled too but then stopped. No big deal I think.

I had one of these things develop on my upper eyelid...it was very small but it was driving me nuts. I shaved it off with a razor and haven't seen one since.
