What causes Freckles, Skin Tags and Birthmarks?
Freckles are small brown spots usually found on the face, neck, chest, and arms. Freckles are extremely common and are not a health threat. These spots are more common in the summer and are likely to develop on fair or light skinned people and those with red hair. Freckles are often genetic and can also develop from sun exposure.
A Skin Tag is a small piece of tissue that hangs off the skin. Like Freckles, Skin Tags are not dangerous and are usually found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under the breasts, or in the groin area. Skin tags are more common in women, especially with weight gain, and in elderly people.
Birthmarks are colored skin spots that either are present at birth or develop shortly after birth. Birthmarks can be many different colors, including brown, tan, black, pale blue, pink, white, red, or purple. Some birthmarks are only colorations of the surface of the skin while others are raised above the surface of the skin.
The cause of birthmarks is still largely unknown.
