I found this article related to skin tags and the connection to insulin resistance.

[Association between skin tags and insulin ... [An Bras Dermatol. 2010] - PubMed - NCBI

It probably isn't 100% of the time, but there is an association.

Someone mentioned 7% iodine tincture. Does it have to be 7% or is 2% just as good, but takes longer?

Maybe most of us do. It's not exactly drawing room conversation. I did once get into a lively conversation with folks at work one quiet weekend and just about everyone who was there admitted to having them at least occasionally.
