I get them, and they can be a pain in the neck.
They are just what they sound like, tags of skin that hang from your normal skin. They can become inflamed, and if they are big, or if you tend to
bleed a lot, I don't recommend cutting them off yourself. I cut a big one off that had become inflamed once, and it bled for four hours, even under
extended direct pressure, making me somewhat anemic. In retrospect, it would have been nice to have a styptic pencil handy.
Imo, the best way to get rid of them, if you have a bunch, is the electric needle. It can be expensive, though. I am going to try bloodroot next time.
