This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on mole removal, Dr. Lam’s philosophy, technique, and results regarding removal of facial moles, nevi, and other facial lesions. (Also see, Scar revision and keloid management forum.)
Can you get a skin tag on a mole? I have a decent sized mole on my face that I have had since I was very young and I also suffer from skin tags. I think a skin tag has popped up on my facial mole. Is that possible? And if so, can I remove it? I remove all my skin tags myself with finger nail clippers and rubbing alcohol. Never had any problems.
never heard of such a thing but i guess all things are possible. i do not see why you could not remove it like all other skin tags but i have no idea what is going on with you since you need to see a dermatologist in person to make any certain skin diagnoses.
