Brief Answer: Skin tags Detailed Answer: Hello Yeshudas, Skin tags or acrochordons are a common skin condition. This is not an infection which spreads but as years progress new ones can develop. It can be hereditary or associated with diabetes or obesity. We cannot remove skin tags by creams. It needs to be removed either by electrocautery or radio frequency ablation, a safe and out patient procedure done by dermatologists with equipment and expertise. Hope I have answered your query. I will be happy to clarify your further queries about this. Take care .
