If you are referring to those tiny (about 0.5 mm x 1 mm) tags of tissue that tend to appear usually in the vicinity of the axillae, those are said to be of viral origin and are said to occur more commonly in people who have problems regulating blood sugar. As to being rid of them, a dermatologist can freeze them off or cut them off, your choice.
