Many people are born with moles, warts and skin tags. Although these are a natural part of existence, certain individuals may want to remove them.

How to Get Rid of Skin Tags, Moles and Warts?
A dermatologist or other medical professional is the only method to correctly remove skin tags, moles, and warts.

Fortunately, there are many options available. From natural to chemical methods, individuals can remove the skin tags, moles and warts that are on their body.

How are Each of The Skin Conditions Different From Each Other?

Moles typically appear from birth to age 30. By the time people reach adulthood, they typically have 10 to 40 moles.

These moles may change shape over time, transform colors or become raised. On occasion, the moles may develop hairs or even disappear.

Typically, moles occur when skin cells known as melanocytes start to form into clusters. Rather than spread out through the skin, they create raised clusters that push toward the surface of the skin.

Unlike moles, skin tags are outgrowths of nerves, epidermis and other parts of the skin. They seldom cause pain, although they can be irritating. Skin tags are typically found on the neck, groin, breast, back, armpits or chest.

Although they are most commonly found in women, skin tags may also occur in men. Weight gain, age and pregnancy are factors for developing skin tags [1].

Warts occur due to a virus that is extremely common. Although many people have this virus, it does not always lead to warts.

In certain individuals, warts may develop more frequently than normal and can be extremely virulent. Even freezing the warts is not always effective in these cases.
