Skin tags are completely harmless but they aren’t aesthetically pleasing But no harm can come from you when they appear. They are skin folds that appear from rubbing with clothes or other parts of your skin. That is why they appear most commonly in armpits, eyelids, the groin area or under your breasts. There is no exact numbers or science to who may or may not get skin tags. Women who have never had any before may find some appearing, and women who have a past of skin tags may see their number increase. Basically, there is a chance of getting skin tags for every woman. They normally will begin showing during the second stage of pregnancy.
Why do you get skin tags during pregnancy?
Once again, there is no exact science behind their appearance. However, some studies related to the growth of skin tags during pregnancy to hormones. Some hormones that are produced while you are pregnant can increase the number of cells produced by layers of the skin. These cells find themselves with nowhere to go and protrude from the skin in the form of skin tags.
It can also be related to excessive rubbing. As well all know, you put on weight and get a little bigger during pregnancy. This, in turn, causes more of your skin to rub, either skin against skin or skin against clothes.
There is a higher risk to get skin tags if you:
- suffer from diabetes
- are overweight
- over the age of 50
- are pregnant
Are there any risks to my baby or me?
No. No studies have shown that they are a risk to you or your baby. However, there are some things to avoid when trying to remove them, either during or after pregnancy. Avoid tying a string around them (a well-known home remedy for their removal) as it can cause infection during pregnancy. Also, avoid over the counter chemicals, as some can be absorbed through the skin and have a negative effect, either during pregnancy or while lactating.
