Re: What the heck is that?

I believe what you are describing is a skin tag and if it is an irritation to you the doctor can remove it with either just a tie off, scissor it off or laser it off. Some people just do it at home with a quick nip of the scissors ...however, it will bleed so need to put pressure on it for a while. Some people get lots of skin tags but in places that irritate...like arm pits or right where the belt hits or is plain unsightly...so they go have them removed. They just like show up seemingly overnight sometimes, they are not harmful just ugly.
