A year ago one skin tag appeared on my right jaw line and one on my neck. I just plucked them off my face with tweezers and moved on, but over the last year more an more have been gradually showing up all over my right side of my face and the frontal right side of my neck. Now there is like 20 of them... I don't know what is causing this or if they are even skin tags. 

I am in fantastic shape and I workout or exercise everyday literally. I have normal cholesterol levels, normal blood pressure, I am not a diabetic. I have a healthy diet. 

If anyone can shed some light on what could be causing this and if they are actually skin tags, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't really look like typical skin tags to me as those are really much longer and more dangly.  Perhaps see a doctor? 

    I very much doubt that they are caused by anything you do or don't do ...

    Hm, well I dont think mine are warts. Mine are all clear white. And when i pluck them off they just grow back in a week.

    I don't have insurance or a dr, otherwise I would have sad

    I've been doing research online for a while, and the only thing even closely related is skin tags, but they apparently are not them.

      What country are you in then?

      Can you ask a Pharmacist?  Some of them are very good.

      Have a look at DermNet NZ and all the doctors I have come across recently [UK] use it.

      Your face looks ok, there don't seem to be many lesions [marks/tags whatever!] on it.
