Golly I have just looked it up online, it's def the molluscum thing, thanks for suggesting. Will take to Dr and up the vitamins.

are you sure they are skin tags and not molluscum contagiosum

Get them checked out. They are mostly a cosmetic problem, but if they start chafing in the summer that can become quite unpleasant.
Having them removed is quick and easy.

I thinkDS has skin tags mainly clustered behind one knee. They're not itchy and he ignores them. Is it worth going to Dr to see if cn do anything to shrink them, or is just a case of time? He isn't remotely bothered. But won't be so nice when is in shorts.
