Customer Question

is this a skin tag or a wart? its soft and smooth, kind of flaps around when I tough it, its a bit flat, not flat to the skin, but wider on one axis than the other, I do have other skin tags in this region, along the perineum that definitely arent warts but never noticed anything before
I had itching there, I think due to heat and sweating, so I may have irritated it with scratching

Thank you for your question. My name is***** - I am a Dermatologist and will do my best to provide a useful input.

Took a look at the photograph - this looks like a swollen skin tag. I don't see features suggestive of this being a wart.

Please feel free to ask if you have any queries.
