What Are Skin Moles?
A skin mole is a colored spot on the outer layer of your skin. The medical term for a mole is nevus. These very common skin growths can appear anywhere on your body and are usually brown or black, either on their own or in groups.
But what about the cause of skin moles? Most moles develop either at birth or during childhood. Skin cells or melanocytes are responsible for providing color to your skin and when they grow together instead of spreading out evenly on the skin, this leads to moles being formed along with their distinctive darker color.
Types of Skin Moles
All skin moles should be self-examined regularly and any suspicious ones should be checked and removed by your doctor or dermatologist. H-Moles Formula is perfect for use on all these types of benign moles:•
Junctional moles – These are usually brown and may be flat or slightly raised•
Compound moles – Slightly raised, tan / brown, pigment-producing cells in skin layers•
Dermal moles – flesh-color to brown, elevated, mostly upper body, may contain hairs•
Sebaceous moles – Produced by over-active oil glands and are yellow and rough-textured•
Blue moles – Slightly raised, color pigment deep within skin, mostly on head, neck & arms
What Do They Look Like?
Skin moles are typically small, dark skin growths that develop from pigment-producing cells in the skin but they can be raised off the skin and very noticeable or they may contain dark hairs.
The special cells that contain the pigment melanin are responsible for the brown color. They can be round, oval, flat, or raised. Most moles are brown, but colors can range from pinkish flesh tones to yellow, dark blue, or black.
Nearly every person has approximately 10 to 40 different types of moles. Some will disappear altogether, while some never lighten at all.
Some moles even develop stalks that raise them above the skin’s surface but these will eventually drop off.
It is easier to check facial moles for any changes than those elsewhere on the body but a medical professional will give a full evaluation and be screening over the entire body including areas that you may not be able to inspect regularly.

Moles vs Skin Tags
Although both moles and skin tags appear on the skin in various parts of the body, they are quite different and usually easily recognized as definitely being either moles or skin tags.
Moles are usually small (less than a ¼ inch in diameter) with well-defined symmetrical borders and mostly a single shade of color throughout the mole ranging from pink to dark brown. Everyone has at least one mole on their body but most have much more and some have two or three types of moles. Some people are born with moles while other moles appear over time. Sun exposure is thought to play a role in the development of moles. All moles should be self-examined regularly for signs of change and any suspicious moles should be checked by your dermatologist or doctor.
Skin tags are little pieces of oddly shaped thick skin which hang from different parts of the body. Some skin tags have a stalk or peduncle. The most common place for skin tags is the eyelids and around the eye, but they can also appear under the arms, on the neck and on your back. If there is one skin tag, then are often many others. Skin tags can bleed because they have their own blood supply. Fortunately, skin tags are benign so there is no health risks. Nevertheless, many people like to have skin tags removed because of their appearance or for other reasons. Skin tags develop in both men and women as they grow older particularly in the overweight or obese and when type 2 diabetes is present.
When you compare moles to skin tags, they have a different appearance but in spite of that some people do confuse them. The important difference is that moles in rare cases can become cancerous while skin tags do not. If you are unsure whether you have moles or skin tags in a particular area of your body, your doctor or dermatologist will give you a definite diagnosis particularly if you wish to remove them.
Both moles and skin tags can have be treated and if you feel they are unsightly or they get in the way when shaving or rub on your clothing or catch in your jewellery, it is often best to have them removed.
