Sort of....: Condyloma (venereal/genital warts and filiform warts developing at sites of trauma/traction) can look like skin tags. Molluscum contagiosum (caused by another virus) produces a hard pinkish/whitish nodule resembling a skin tag sometimes. All are treatable by your physician. All are contagious until effectively treated. It is important to treat condyloma as some increase the risk of cervical ca.
