I have it from long time but two weeks ago around the skin tag was red and now is black on the half

also is dried
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There is not pain

It's not a skin tag and that appearance worries me

It may just be a benign keratosis but I can't rule out either a basal or squamous cell carcinoma--skin cancer

You need to have a dermatologist check that out as soon as possible

Please let me know if you need any more information
