I'm 21 and I've got some skin tags around my neck and two on the face too. They look awful like some flower in black about a size of mustards. I clean myself good, but I wonder why they have appeared. It has been almost 4years now and are still growing. What is the reason for that and how can I be free from them?

It is usually due to fungal infection. Get your blood tested for hemogram, sugar, uric acid, thyroid and vitamin D3, to rule out anemia, infection, diabetes, thyroid, gout and vitamin D deficiency. In the mean time apply quadriderm ointment twice a day.
