Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.

I would like to know whether lesions are moles or skin tags
Kindly upload images of your lesions.
I will be help you further.

If skin tags:
Skin tags known as Papillomas.
Actually skin tags are harm less
There is no medical treatment like tablets and creams for skin tags.
For cosmetic reasons it can be removed by minor surgical procedure like cutting with a blade or scissors after giving local anesthesia, freezing with liquid nitrogen, or using electric cautery (burning).
To remove skin tags you can visit a dermatologist.

If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
