Warts, skin tags, and moles, although harmless, can affect your appearance and be a nuisance. It can be confusing to tell them apart too, so first, let’s learn how to differentiate between the three.
Skin tags are small, soft pieces of skin that stick out on a thin stem or stalk. They most often appear on the neck, armpits, upper trunk, and body folds. The cause of skin tags is not known. They are harmless. Skin tags are basically small flaps of skin that can be the size of a tiny pinhead or as big as three centimeters. They can become bigger over time due to friction, forming into a round ball-like shape.
On the other hand, warts are rough patches of thick skin that grow thick and deep.
