Question: How Are PCOS and Skin Tags Related?

While it's not known what causes them, skin tags or Acrocordons, are another annoying symptom of PCOS. Skin tags are small flaps of skin, usually found in the armpit, neck and groin. They can become irritated as they rub against your skin or clothing. Make sure to get any unusual marks or growths evaluated by your physician.

Skin tags usually do not cause any other medical problems. However if they become bothersome, skin tags can be easily removed at the dermatologist’s office. The procedure is pretty simple and is only mildly uncomfortable. It take just a few minutes and recovery is brief.
