Beyond the Surface: The Impact of Skin Tags, Warts and Moles

These common dermatological conditions are often overlooked in terms of health, they can significantly impact an individual’s self-esteem and daily comfort. In this blog, we will be exploring the nature of these skin concerns and the profound effects they have on those they touch.

The Unseen Burden of Skin Tags, Warts, and Moles

Skin Tags: Small, benign tumours that typically form in areas where the skin folds, such as the neck, armpits, and groin. They are more than just aesthetic concerns; they can signify deeper health issues, such as insulin resistance or Type 2 diabetes, especially in those with numerous tags.

Warts: These rough growths emerge when the skin is infected with one of the many types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Though commonly found on hands and feet, warts can appear anywhere and are not only a cosmetic nuisance but can also lead to discomfort and pain, depending on their location.

Moles: Moles are clusters of pigment cells that often appear as small, dark brown spots. While they are usually harmless, their evolution in size, shape, or colour warrants medical attention, as it could indicate melanoma, a severe form of skin cancer.

These skin conditions do more than affect our appearance; they often make you feel self-conscious, leading many to seek cover-ups and treatments that promise relief. The friction of excess skin rubbing against skin or jewellery, particularly cheap alloys, can exacerbate or even cause skin tags, highlighting lifestyle and environmental factors’ roles in these skin issues. Moreover, as we age, particularly after 50, the likelihood of developing these conditions increases, posing an ongoing challenge for many.
