    Hi there, Yes, oh my goodness yes! When skin tags started for me it was when I was pregnant 15 years ago. I gained a lot of weight at that time. When I lost the weight I froze them off, but they grew back, then were under my arms, but not many, maybe three on each side. Now in my early mid forties it appears I have a crop of them on each side under and around my arms. I read that they cal be linked with insulin issues, but I have had numerous blood tests random sugar tests, A1C, and insulin testing and all is normal. My father has had them around his neck for as long as I can remember, so thought maybe it is just a heredity skin condition........but I will say over the last year they have multiplied.
