Skin Tags Could Mean Hormone Imblance

The Endocrine society has  guidelines on PCOS, or polycystic ovarian condition. Women are most likely to have this if they have abnormal menstrual cycles, ovaries with small cysts and male hormone abnormalities. In diagnosing and treating women with PCOS, the endocrine society also points out that there are skin consequences of PCOS. Patients with PCOS have abnormal  hair growth, acne, alopecia or hair loss, acanthosis nigricans which is a skin pigment disorders, and skin tags during physical examination, according to the new guidelines.In addition to abnormal menstrual periods, and infertility, struggles with weight, diabetes and blood pressure problems all plague women with PCOS. Skin tags are partially genetic, partially due to trauma and irritation to the skin (like those near necklace lines and underarms), but they are also estrogen sensitive and often will grow during pregnancy and near menopause as well as if you have the other hormone imblances such as those of PCOS. Hada Cosmetic Medicine we ask Women's Health Practice to work up our patients for the hormone concerns. Appropriate evaluation for this condition can help you have the best overall health as well as the best skin.
