I am just curious as to whether all that rubbing and tightness could cause like small skin flaps and/or skin tags in my labia area?

No: Skin tags are very common and are not necessarily located in areas that are associated with tight fitting or rubbing clothes. Also, "skin flaps" in the labial area are not caused by this either. I would suggest that if you have some new growths or changes in the labial area, that you should get them examined. ...Read more

How can I get rid of HPV preferably without a clinic. i have these skin tag type flesh growing on my outer labia. HELP!

Here are some ...: If the number and size of skin tags remain stable and symptomatic, you may leave them alone without doing anything with them. However, having a professional evaluation and counseling is still most preferable for "definite" diagnosis and Rx. If their removal and biopsy are done and wart is confirmed, you would need to have PAP smear more vigilant than the average women in the future. More? See Doc. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a skin tag on vagina labia or is this a genital wart? Is there any way to tell the difference? One small bump

Atypical for warts: Certainly a skin tag could occur in this location, and genital warts usually don't appear singly -- i.e. without several such bumps, warts are less likely. Skin tags typically are soft and easily pushed around, whereas warts typically are fixed pretty firmly and less mobile. But if you remain uncertain, get checked. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more
