Genital Wart Vrs Tag: The difference between genital warts and a skin tag is very distinctive. Genital warts are the result of a sexually transmitted disease (std). A skin tag is the result of age, pregnancy, obesity and heredity. In addition, other factors (such as symptoms) make these two conditions different. See your doctor for help.
