Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

The skin colored tags on the vagina can be-
1. Hymenal tags- These are the parts of the membranous structure hymen which remain hanging around the vaginal opening. It is a harmless finding and if needed can be excised by your gynecologist.
2. Genital warts- Usually due to viral infection. Some of the simple tests carried out by your gynaecologist will confirm the diagnosis.

A thorough examination is entailed for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Till then you can take general cleanliness measures to avoid any infection in that area.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Regards.
