Skin tag on my thigh
I have a skin tag on my inner thigh that has recently become irritated and is causing me discomfort and I'd like to get it removed. I'm curious about the process for that and whether it's covered by my insurance.
Skin tags can vary in size and can become irritated because of the location they are in, mostly on the neck, armpit, groin and under the breast area. They can be removed for cosmetic reasons or functional, where the tags are becoming irritated when caught or abraded by clothing. Skin tags can be removed by banding, cutting off the blood supply to the skin tag, cauterization (burning), freezing and occasionally surgical removal under local anaesthetic. To find out if your policy will cover this you will need to talk to your claims team.
Hopefully this will help you.
