Skin tags. Yuck. Apparently you get them from pregnancy, has something to do with hormones. I've never had them before, and all the sudden (when I was pregnant with Aiden) they started popping up. I had one on my neck and it was sticking out....annoying the crap out of me. This morning, I decided to clip it off with nail clippers, OUCH! It bled like crazy which I didn't expect....but it's gone.



Anyone else have issues with these things while they were pregnant or after they had a baby?

I haven't, but they've very common. Easily removable too. They have over the counter products you can use that won't make you bleed lol

Really? I have only seen wart remover and such. I wasn't sure if that would work or not.

They have stuff that's specifically for skin tags. One is called tag Away, another is Naturasil. You can Google Skin tag Removers and it gives you a list of quite a few.

Well, thank you.
You'd think I would have thought of that in the first place. Google for the win, haha.

I got one really awful one on my upper chest around 30ish weeks. It was purple and full of blood. I was so self-conscious of it since it showed in most of my shirts. Right after baby came, it emptied of the blood and shrunk down. It is now (8 months later) still there, but flesh coloured and just a little raised bump. I'm sure only I notice it now.

What?! I have never had any yet. Lol. I guess I should consider myself lucky. I knew about skin tags but didn't realize you got them after pregnancy. I will definitely have to watch out for them and go get some of the OTC meds to get rid of them if they pop up!

I got skin tags with my earlier pgs, but they were only in my armpits. So oneday after I shaved my armpits every so often, they just stopped growing back. They never really bled or anything. I am due via c-section #4 in 2 weeks with my last baby. We're done and I'm getting snipped.
