chlorestol skin tags over eye lids?

Which one?: "skin tags" usually refers to papillomas- common growths around the eyes and sometimes on the neck and elsewhere. They are elevated off the skin + look like microscopic cauliflower. They sometimes have a narrow stalk at the base. They are like a wart; caused by virus. Cholesterol deposits occur as yellow slightly raised patches on the inner parts of the upper lid- called xanthelasma. Both benign.
