Hello doctor,

I am 34 years male. I have skin tags in underarms and neck. I have a skin tag in the shaft of the penis for the past four months. I consulted a doctor here in my town, and they said it is a skin tag. I want to re confirm it again. Please help.

It appears to be a tag in this picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Nothing is usually done for tax, and however, for the cosmetic reason, you may opt to get it removed by cautery by your dermatologist. Keep a check on your body weight as being overweight increases the chances of having skin tags. However, please note, then the picture should be focused and should not blur on the zooming.
