Skin Tags After Hemorrhoids
Around the anus.

If clotted and dangling and not full veins may be called tags. ...Read more

Why do I have external hemorrhoids/skin tags but no internal hemorrhoids? I thought the external ones came from inside. Thank you.
External hemorrhoids: Usually the hemorrhoidal cushions or vein complexes originate internally. The shear forces secondary to either straining with constipation or frequent bowel movements associated with diarrhea can lead to prolapse of the anal lining (mucosa) and associated hemorrhoids. If they clot or thrombose, they can be quite painful. When the acute inflammation resides you may be left with redundant skin. ...Read more
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. Most anal itching is the result of soilage collecting around the anal tags which makes patient's feel like they aren't clean and results in excess wiping. I typically recommend my patients to keep flushable wipes in their purse as they clean around the tags more thoroughly with less irritation. ...Read more

It's been 6 years since my only son was born. I still have hemorrhoids and also a skin tag. I'm embarrased, can I treat this quickly from home?
Hemorrhoids: This is nothing to be embarrased about, of course, but you can try over the counter hemorrhoid treatments. If they do not help do not hesitate to be seen. ...Read more
No real risks: Except infection which is minimal. The real problem is that in healing after surgery, skin tags can reform, they are usually smaller but your bottom will probably never look like a baby's bottom. Additionally, insurance may consider it cosmetic and therefore would not cover the surgery. I frankly discourage patient s from having the tags removed. If hygeine is due to pasty smeary stools, removing. ...Read more

Fecal leakage?: Occasional incontinence of stool with fecal leakage is common, but loss of bowel control particularly without warning may signal a significant infection, inflammatory problem, maldigestive concern, or neurologic disorder. Sometimes, particularly in youths, the condition is behavioral. Often, anal manometry followed by biofeedback can be curative without the need of surgery or medication. ...Read more

I found what looks like skin tags toward the end of my vagina. I just want to make sure it’s nothing serious.? Could it possibly be something else?
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. ...Read more
