I left my small one and skin tag for years until the bastard started a coup and grew to tennis ball size.
I couldn't walk.
Just had a stapled haemoroidectomy for the mega pile and his five friends plus two tags.
It was horrendous.
Yes it is worth going! I had a similar problem - large skin tag. Further investigation revealed 4 (yes 4!!!!) internal piles that I didn't know I had. I had surgery to have the whole lot removed, including the tag, and now things are much better!
There is much more effective medication on prescription.
Would they just suggest an over the counter cream or is there anything else that can help?
I have had a skin tag in this area years before I had children. Since DC I now have bleeding from my rectum regularly (bright red so nothing more sinister) and the whole area feels very sore and is difficult to keep clean.
I used to use Anusol but have to admit run out of that a while ago and haven’t replaced? I’d happily go with just a medication recommendation.
Thanks very much.
