Skin growths between breasts

I have several raised skin colored bumps between my breasts, a couple on my neck and some under my armpits. I sometimes cut them off with nail clippers but I want to know what they are!! Does anyone know? Are they harmful??

Hi,

It seems it is not painful, since you remove these with nail clippers. It is difficult to know what this could be, perhaps skin tags or keratin horns or warts. Either case, you should show this to a physician/dermatologist. Its important to understand that removing some tissue without any protection may lead to serious infections and its is necessary to know if it is removable at home.

Let us know what your doctor says.

Regards.

Hi,

If that is the case, you should not use nail clippers or cut them in any way. Do not even pick at them.

These could turn infectious and then it would be difficult to handle and contain the infection.

You need to have a clinical examination by your physician or dermatologist/skin specialist for a confirmed diagnosis.

Let us know what your doctor tells you.

Also post us if you have any doubts.

Regards.
