I was told skin tags caused by HPV are spreadable. If so, how can I tell if its a natural tag or by hpv? I know it isn't a wart, so why can it spread?
Not skin tag: Hpv, or human papilloma virus, causes warts, including common warts and genital warts. These are different from skin tags. A skin tag is generally a flap of skin or similar, while a wart is flat. Because warts contain virus, they can be infectious. To be sure, see your provider. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
