I realize I have a hemorrhoid skin tags near my anal, it itches sometime and it makes me scared. Will it go away on its own without surgery?

Anal skin tags: The anal skin tags will not go away without surgery but the symptoms of itching can be controlled.

Ped. Told friend baby girl had skin tags. At 9 yrs, took to derm who said she had anal warts. Could yrs of nontreatmnt be bad & will HPV shot help?

Ped. Told friend baby girl had skin tags. At 9 yrs, took to derm who said she had anal warts. Could yrs of nontreatmnt be bad & will HPV shot help?

Mode of transmission: HPV vaccine would not help. The important question is how did a 9 year old girl got anal warts. I think your friend needs to discuss this with the pediatrician as soon as possible. It is a medical-legal consequence if those are really due to a HPV-related infection. Your dermatologist should have acted on this as well as your pediatrician. ...Read more
