Hanging skin of stomach

i have a very small area on my stomach that looks like extra skin hanging. It looks like a hanging tag About as big as a small pimple. It is flat and wrinkly. I thought it was hanging skin but when I tried to cut it hurt. It;s darker than the rest of my skin. So it is defiinitly a part of my skin and it is not a sore. I ve had warts before but they did hang. It is just below my bra line. I a 52 year old female in relatively good health. Just a little high blood pressure.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It's quite possible it is a wart caused by viral infection. Skin tags are associated with such viral infection. Better to consult a Dermatologist for proper management of these tags, laser can remove them. Keep your blood pressure in control. Stop fatty food, eat low salt diet, avoid junk and fatty food. Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Do brisk walking everyday for 40 minutes.
