There seem to be a lot of people here describing skin tags that seem to be multiplying in clusters. Typically, I don't believe skin tags do this. HOWEVER, something called Molluscum Contagiosum. It's a virus that looks a lot like skin tags and they show up as one then grow into a cluster of them. They can be in one area or spread to other parts of the body.

Doctors will tell you they're difficult to get rid of. The treatment is painful AND expensive. However, if it is Molluscum Contagiosum (Google it for pictures), you can simply rub a tiny bit of therapeutic grade tea tree essential oil on it twice a day for a couple weeks. You can buy a 10mL bottle of it for $4.99 on Amazon and about $3.50 shipping perhaps. Sometimes you can find it with free shipping if you buy $25 worth of stuff.

Give it a try. If it is Molluscum Contagiosum, it's an ugly, ugly virus and spreads across the body if not treated. It's one of those you can have for years, too, if left untreated. :)

Good luck, all!

My son had the molluscum contagiosum on his butt, we heard about Emuaid from somebody, went online to check it out, bought some and started applying it twice daily. After about a month it cleared up and has not returned. The Emuaid is a little pricey but it worked whereas the straightup tea tree oil did not.

That's a wonderful apiaciltpon. Playing air hockey on the iPad might be the next coolest thing after the iPad itself. I bet all the guys from the team will be delighted to hear about it. Unfortunately for me I have to wait a few more months before I get my iPad and the air hockey game.

Actually they are completely different. Skin tags and Molluscum Contagiosum look different.

Google images of the two and you will see.

Most reading on the internet says they do not spread but I had a doctor about 20 years ago tell me otherwise. He removed some from my eye lids and they never came back.

I recently had a lot removed by a doctor and I now have even more in the same areas. I tried to tell him that just a scalpel would not do, that they needed to be cauterized so that it would not spread while I showered. The blood or whatever makes up the tag is what spreads it.

I don't care what the internet says I am living proof that they spread.

Cauterizing, tieing off, freezing and applying different remedies is the best way to go.
