Ok, this is quite embarassing blush ............

After 3 DCs and piles i now have a flap of skin on my bumhole blush i think it must be a skin tag, Can i remove it myself or will they do it on the NHS?! Thanks

Let the Dr do it.

Crikey definately let the Doc do it, don't even go there.

Get doc to have a look if it only one they might do it for you, but a friend of mine has several biggish ones( no I haven't seen them) and went to her gp who said she couldn't have them removed on the Nhs as it was considered a cosmetic problem she would have to go private

You can't fucking well remove it yourself. grin

How do you propose to do that? With a penknife, or toenail clippers, and a handheld mirror?

Yes you can do it yourself. Full instructions here! grin wink

I thought you just had to tie a string around them?!

How the bloody hell do you tie a bit of string around a minisclue bit of skin on your arse?

I have enough trouble doing up my laces at times.

But what if the doctor says no? That would be doubly embarassing!!
