Skin Tags During Pregnancy

Ah, skin tags. Another not-so-fun side-effect of pregnancy. Here's hot to spot them -- and what to do about them.

What can I do to prevent skin tags during pregnancy?

Sorry, but you can’t really prevent them.

What do other pregnant moms do when they have skin tags?

“I got a few skin tags in random places (back, neck, armpit) when I was pregnant with baby number two. They didn’t go away for me, but I did have them removed by my doctor.”

“This is my fourth pregnancy, and I’d never had a skin tag before. I recently developed one on the lower part of my tummy. I was hoping it would go away, but from what I’ve heard, the only way to get rid of them is to have them removed by a doctor.”

“I have a skin tag growing on the left side of my neck and one on my bikini line. My OB said she could remove them after birth.”

Are there any other resources for skin tags?
