Will the skin tags I'm getting while pregnant go away after labor and delivery?

I'm getting "skin flaps" in various places all over my body. I've probably gotten 6 or 7 little spots of skin bumps throughout the pregnancy. Sorry if t.m.i. ~ I understand that these are pretty common during pregnancy. I just want to know if they ever go away? I want to have normal skin again. I'm pretty close to the end of pregnancy so I hope not too many more grow in.

  • I think some do and some dont, but you can always get them removed by a dermatilogist. I had one that i had removed and it did not hurt to get it done.

  • Almost all of mine went away... I just have a few bigger ones in my armpit now.

  • I had them pretty badly, too, and most of mine went away a few months after my son was born.

  • Some may or may not go away ,but they can very easily be removed at a dermatoligist or a med spa.
