Skin tags are smooth and soft, whereas warts tend to be rougher with an irregular surface. Skin tags are knobbly and hang off the skin, whereas warts are usually flat. Skin tags aren't contagious, but warts spread very easily, so a sudden outbreak or cluster of growths is more likely to be warts.
Skin tags can occur almost anywhere on the body covered by skin. However, the two most common areas for skin tags are the neck and armpits. Other common areas for the development of skin tags include the face, eyelids, upper chest (particularly under the female breasts), buttock folds, and groin folds. Tags are typically thought to occur where skin rubs against itself or clothing. Babies who are plump may also develop skin tags in areas where skin rubs against skin, like the sides of the neck. Younger children may develop tags at the upper eyelid areas, often in areas where they may rub their eyes. Older children and preteens may develop tags in the underarm area from friction and repetitive irritation from sports.
Skin tags typically occur in the following characteristic locations:
• Base of the neck
• Face and Eyelids
• Groin folds
• Buttock folds
• Under the breasts
