Why does pregnancy do such gross things to our body? I'm supposedly prone to skin tags anyway, because of my PCOS, but before I got pregnant, I only had two on my neck which were pretty recent, and one in my armpit from forever ago.
But the other day I was examining the two on my neck, and was actually relieved to see that they looked smaller. I checked them out again a few days later, but they mysteriously seemed to be back to their regular size. A few days later again, and they had shrunk again. Confused, I angled the mirror slightly, and to my horror, realized that I was looking at a completely different set of skin tags! The original two are farther back! I have FOUR on that side of my neck now!
I looked on the other side of my neck, and ewww! I have like three on my collar bone!
I really hope that my provincial health care covers their removal and I won't have to pay for it. I suspect that they don't--it's probably considered cosmetic, but maybe my GP will take mercy on me.
Anyone else got something gross going on with their skin? Anyone develop the linea nigra yet?
