Has anyone else gotten skin tags in WEIRD places while pregnant?

I mean com'on this is retarted... lol I didn't get any of this stuff with my first child.. This is my 2nd pregnancy and my lord you name it I GOT IT... lol I know skin tags are caused by pregnancy but man they are nasty and I don't like them... I got them under my breast and in between my legs :( I asked the doc if she could take care of them and she told me "we will just have to watch them" wtf.. can you or not?!?! lol I pulled the ones off under my breast, which bleed a little and then tried the ones down under and umm nope that is a little tender under there... lmao

  • They can cut them off before or after delivery. They're not a big concern at this point (to the doctor anyway). But they should take care of them, if you remind them, while you are in the hospital for delievery.

  • Well I had them too. Mine fell off or I scratched them off. I had a mole right near my clit that grew huge I made the dr. cut it off. Man it bled like mad. So you may want to wait until after delivery. It was crazy. If it is making you nutty then tell the dr. just do it now.

  • OMG.. i have one right on my panty line down under and shit it bothers me like hell, it wasnt an issue for a while but i think its grown and my LO is already 16 months.. Someone told me that if i tie it with a lock of my hair real tightly it will dry up and fall off but as u may realize it kinda hard to get down their let alone tie something. I just recently asked my hubby to feel it and it freaked him cant deal with shit... got my next appoint. next month will ask my doc.
