What are ear tags?
Skin tags in front of the ears are congenital abnormalities involving the fetal developmental stages. Some skin tags are skin only while others involve some cartilages. In most ear tag cases, hearing is not affected and the removal is a cosmetic procedure that many parents elect for their baby or young child. Skin tags can be associated with other congenital abnormalities and syndromes like Goldenhar syndrome and Wildervanck syndrome.
Dr. Jones skillfully treats skin tags with excision. Depending on the size of the tag, this is typically an in-office procedure performed with local anesthesia. Patients with a large mass may need to have general anesthesia. Dr. Jones recommends scheduling ear tag removal for a child before they reach school age, as this condition can be a source of ridicule among peers and cause preventable psychological stress.
