Clitoral Skin Tag
I have a small white skin tag like thing in the hood of my clitoris, it feels like I could just rip it off. Painless, should I worry? Skin colored
Check with your GYN: Could be nothing. Could be veneral wart. Needs to be seen. Don't rip it off!
Maybe: Clitoral skin tags are rare because that is primarily nerve tissue, as opposed to the everyday, common skin tag on "normal skin" that may just be clipped off. The fact that it is exactly there and that it is painful with arousal raises a new level of suspicion. This may be one for your gyn to take a look at. I don't imagine that it's a tumor, but an abnormal growth like that may need to be checked.
I have 2 skin tags on my clitoris and when aroused it can be very painful is this something I should be worried about?
Family practice: I would have them checked out. It could be venerial warts.
I have a skin tag looking little flap a bit whitish in color between the lips and beging part of the vagina some ways above my clitoris skin tag or?
Of course: A picture is worth a thousand words. But I recommend an eval by a dermatologist or your GYN to give you an idea of what it is..
I had a skin tag removed off my labia majora just above my clitoris, and my ob cut a mass amount of the surrounding skin too. So really nasty lookin?
Get more information: Talk to your doctor about the skin tag that was removed. Was there anything abnormal about it? Understand why they removed what they did. Would you need any further procedures? Tell them your concerns, and they can help you determine if this is normal, not completely healed, etc.
In all honesty...: ...I discourage people from doing this because of risk of bleeding, infections and scarring. That said, if you're going to do it anyway, clean the skin and a very sharp pair of small nail scissors with alcohol, and snip them off. Big ones can bleed quite a lot, so let your doc do those. An old folk remedy is to tie thread around them, but that seldom works. Otc "paint on" products are worthless.
Yes, but don't: Skin tags can easily be removed with a small sharp scissors, but since they bleed when removed cautery will be necessary to stop the bleeding. Tying string or over the counter chemical can work but may cause damage to the skin which result in possible scarring.See 1 more doctor answer
See Your Doctor: Go and see your doctor, usually after a little numbing medicine is applied, they can be painlessly cut off in the office.See 2 more doctor answers
Skin tags: Skin tags (acrochordons) are soft outpouchings of skin that may be caused by skin friction. They may grown under the arms or breasts & on neck, upper chest or groin.
Skin Tags: Skin Tags can usually be easily removed in the office with a sharp scissor after cleaning the area. They generally do not bleed significantly. If the skin tag is in a sensitive area (eyelid) or has a large base I will injection local anesthetic prior to removal. Your doctor should be able to help. It is a common request.
Nothing unless....: A skin tag medically known as an acrochordon is a benign skin lesion that occurs usually around the neck, armpits, groin, eyelids or any skin with creases. Commonly seen in people who are overweight, have diabetes and in pregnant women. Unless they are causing pain or discomfort or become irritated by clothing no treatment is needed. Otherwise they. Are removed quite readily by a dermatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
