Thanks for using Health Care Magic Forum,

Its Normal for some women after giving birth they sometimes notice an increasing number of skin tags in the area of the vagina. Usually gynecologists are not overly concerned about skin tags. It is often unnecessary for a doctor to remove vaginal skin tags because unlike skin tags that grow elsewhere most skin tags are just an embarrassing growth. The methods used to remove the skin tag may be more painful than the growth itself such as surgical excursion. The reason they are not concerned is that skin tags are not cancerous, but a benign growth that is not as bad as other diseases such as hpv and herpes. They do, however, ask women who have them to make sure their size does not increase or that they change in color. They may remove the skin tag, on the other hand, if the skin tag becomes irritated to the point it is starting to swell. It is then you may have to visit the gynecologist and have him/her remove it.
