I don't have PCOS, but developed more and more skintags with each pregnancy. Afterwards I removed some, the ones that particularly bothered me, by tying them off tightly with a silk thread and letting them die. Then they just dropped off and barely left a mark.
In my last pgcy I developed quite a few tiny skintags around my nipples. [yeuch emoticon] They all disappeared within days of ds2's birth - he had somehow stripped them off while feeding! (Yeah, I know you're not supposed to give them solids at 2days old. )
I think it's because your skin and hair renew themselves so quickly in pregnancy - it's sort of a fit over over-enthusiasm. That's how it was explained to me anyway.
I had one when I was a student on my neck, which I hated. My mum advised me the nurse would tie a bit of souche (sp?) thread around it and pull it tight, and then it would eventually drop off. As a student I was too busy drinking working for all that, so did it myself with some cotton. It worked. But as an adult I wouldn't do it again, I'd ask the nurse!
Thank goodness it's not just me! I got loads on my neck with DD and I thought I'd got away with it this time, but they've started going mad again the last couple of weeks!!! All on my neck, my chest and I've found one on my chin this morning! Lovely!
Some of mine went within a few months of giving birth to DD. I'm hoping these do the same!
I've also got pigmentation patches on my cheeks (face!! Lol!!) and round my lips that looks like brown lip liner! People keep telling me I have chocolate round my mouth and I have to explain !! Nothing covers it either, so I have to just put up with it!!!
I know what you mean Leningrad, I've been religiously slapping on the factor 30 in a bid to stop the pigmentation getting worse, and have still caught the sun just dashing in and out to the shops etc, more than I would having 2 weeks in the sun!!! Pity mine is patchy, though!!!
I've just got one popped up on the INSIDE of my eye - the corner. It is really really irritable. I think its because I've been rubbing my eyes so much with hayfever... going to doctors about it tomorrow to see if they can do anything...
