Do skin tags have roots? I removed what I thought was a skin tag from my penis, it had a long hairlike root

Do skin tags have roots? I removed what I thought was a skin tag from my penis, it had a long hairlike root

Skin tags.: Hi OStein ~ no, skin tags do not have roots. What you removed was probably an in-grown hair with some hypertrophy of tissue at base. If its gone, have no fear, it will stay gone! ...Read more

I have lumps or skin tags (from a bad circumcision) on the underside of my penis shaft that I want removed. How much will this procedure cost?

I have lumps or skin tags (from a bad circumcision) on the underside of my penis shaft that I want removed. How much will this procedure cost?

The "skin tags": Could possibly be hpv infection--genital warts. On men they are frequently flat, slightly raised papules, and can be very different sizes and textures. If you have ever had unprotected sex with anyone, this might be the cause. Might be a good idea to talk to a urologist as they could remove the lesions no matter what the origin. Cost would be up to insurance coverage, or what you could negotiate. ...Read more

Hey! I'm a 22 year old white male and recently I've discovered these small white bumps on my penis shaft. They're painless and look like skin tags. They seemed to form after I had some warts removed from my elbow, which leads me to believe that it may be

Hey! I'm a 22 year old white male and recently I've discovered these small white bumps on my penis shaft. They're painless and look like skin tags. They seemed to form after I had some warts removed from my elbow, which leads me to believe that it may be

Probably normal: Every male has "small white bumps" on the penile skin, normal sebaceous glands and hair follicles. If you are sure this is new and/or abnormal, see your doctor or a dermatologist. In the meantime, this description doesn't sound at all like genital warts. And common skin warts don't get transmitted to the genital area, so that's really not something to be concerned about. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can I cut off or use wart remover to remove scar tissue from a healed cut at the base of my penis I nicked myself a few times while shaving my genital area. After the small cuts healed, scar tissue grew and they look like skin tags?

Can I cut off or use wart remover to remove scar tissue from a healed cut at the base of my penis I nicked myself a few times while shaving my genital area. After the small cuts healed, scar tissue grew and they look like skin tags?

This: This could be razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis), skin tags, warts, molluscum, a scar, or several other possibilities. I think you should probably see a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and to discuss treatment options. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Here is some...: What described could clinically represents the occurrence of an hair-follicle-related hyperactive sebaceous gland or just indeed a skin tag, which is harmless as long as being free of symptoms. Of course, it is still hard to tell for sure at 100% without a direct look & feel at it. To have all related things right can be done as described in https://ebettercare. Com/feel-become-sick/.

Gave my Bf oral. I looked at penis saw one skin tag looking thing. Should I be worried about getting oral hpv, I was vaccinated. Scared?

Don't worry too much: If you received the HPV vaccine, that is fantastic- and it means you're most likely protected against the common causes of genital warts as well as the viruses that cause cancer. (Almost 99% effective). If you saw a 'wart like thing' -that's probably HPV 6 or 11. They cause 90% of anogenital warts. Those HPVs are included in the vaccine -so I'm not worried. Would encourage your Bf to get vaccine. ...Read more

For over a year I've had this skin development, along my penis. I don't think it's a skin tag, possibly some sort of wart. Could you please help me?

Doctor to evaluate: Rashes are quite hard to describe and diagnose in words. A primary care doctor, a dermatologist, or a urologist will have to look at a penis rash in order to tell what it is. If an eczema rash, hydrocortisone cream often helps. If warts, molluscum, or some other infection, special treatments are needed. Some penis bumps are considered normal, such as comedones. ...Read more

I have white (almost my skin tone) finger like bumps under the head of my penis near the opening. Is this warts or skin tags?

Maybe papules?: Check out pictures of "pearly penile papules" and see if this isn't you. If this is what you have, it's your choice. For many couples, they're a definite "plus". Or if your lifetime partner would prefer, they can be lasered away. ...Read more

I have a single clear pinkish bump on my penis shaft. 2 doctors told me not to worry about it. 1 said infection. 1 said skin tag. Any guess?

Could be skin tag: Or a wart. You can try this to see--- soak a piece of gauze or cloth in plain white vinegar. Then lay it on the growth for about 3-5 minutes. If it turns the growth white compared to the surrounding skin, then it's a wart caused by hpv and should be treated, as you can infect other people. Hope that helps. ...Read more
