Skin tags are soft skin growths which are harmless. These are usually found on eye lids, neck, armpita, groin folds, and under breasts.
Anyone can develop skin tags at some time in life. Middle aged obese adults are more prone to it. These can be easily removed by tying off with thread or suture or cutting off. ...Read more
I have had surgery for Undifferentiated VIN3 2x in the past year. Could a new, hard, flesh colored skin tag be VIN? Does it have to be biopsied to R/O
Evaluation Is Needed:
I needs to be evaluated, in person, preferably by the same physician who saw the previous lesions.

Yesterday found hard lump 3/4 inch x 1/2 inch at base of pre-existing skin tag at base of my neck. It has seeped a little and crusted. No fever or itch?
Get it checked:
Hard to say what this is. It could be a cyst that has become infected or an ingrown hair.
Either way, it should be seen by your doctor. These are typically removed after the acute inflammation has stopped (No longer seeping) and can be sent to pathology for a definitive diagnosis.
However, more serious things can present like this so please have it evaluated by your family doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more
I found a small bump that looked like an ingrown hair and I squeezed it and felt like there was a small hard ball inside...Is it HPV, skin tag or??
Little bumps that have a "small hard ball" inside are more likely to be acne bumps, which means open comedones (blackheads), small acne bumps (closed comedones), or small acne pustules (whiteheads). They could also be molluscum, which are caused by a virus.
Skin tags and HPV warts don't tend to have a lump of stuff inside the center. ...Read more
