I asked my Doctor a long time ago about them when I had a few taken off and my Doc said it's from friction of your skin rubbing together. If you get a little larger in some places that are always moving a lot, you'll get them. 

Because of meds and such, I lost any extra weight I had and have never had them since.

- Friction - The rubbing of skin against skin, clothes or jewelry can cause skin tags to form.

- Hormones - Hormone fluctuation such as during pregnancy can cause skin tags

- Diabete - Skin tags can be a sign of pre-diabetes

- Genetics - Sometimes they are just passed down in your genetics
