Not painful not itchy, it doesn’t bleed

Thanks for the reply.

It sounds like a skin tag which can occur due to inflammation in the past. As far as there is no other symptom, there is nothing much to worry about. But you can see your doctor for an examination to confirm the diagnosis.

Does it look like a wart

Thanks for the reply.

Wart is usually pointed and not soft so it is not likely to be a wart.
