Underarm Skin Tags
Three years ago, Dustin, 25, noticed a large skin growth under his arm. “It’s hideous,” he says. “What is it, and how do I get rid of it?”

Dermatologist Dr. Ava Shamban explains that a skin tag is a normal outgrowth of the skin that tends to occur in areas that rub together and cause friction, such as the eyelids, around the neck, under the arms and beneath the bra line for women.

Dr. Shamban performs a skin tag removal procedure on Dustin. “The good news,” she says, “is that [removing] this is a very simple procedure to do in the office.”
