Why skin tags occur?
Skin tags are made of loose collagen fibres and blood vessels surrounded by skin. Collagen is a type of protein found throughout the body. Both men and women can develop skin tags. They tend to occur in older people and people who are obese or have type 2 diabetes.
Pregnant women may also be more likely to develop skin tags as a result of changes in their hormone levels. Some people develop them for no apparent reason. Skin tags tend to grow in the skin folds, where the skin rubs against itself, such as on the neck, armpits or groin. This is why they tend to affect overweight people who have excess folds of skin and skin chafing.
Why Milia occurs?
It is caused by trapped dead skin cells (keratin) in your skin clogging up the sweat ducts.Milia tend to occur after trauma like a rash due to allergic reactions and irritation from harsh products. After an injury, burn or blistering of the skin, the number of skin cells trapped under the skin’s surface can increase.Another important factor which can cause milia is using face creams which are too rich thus preventing natural exfoliation from occurring. Sun damage is another contributing factor.Although they are harmless, many people with milia would prefer to remove them.
