Not the nicest of threads but I have a skin tag on my vagina at the top and one by my bottom. Is this normal? Do they go away? I have also had re-occuring thrush (am 32 weeks) for the last few months which I have treated twice with a pessery but think it may have come back. Does anyone know if any other treatment rather than canesten is more likely to work (I know you can't take the oral pill).
I had a skin tag towards my bikini line, but I couldn't reach it enough to do anything because my bump was so huge! I read that you're not supposed to cut / pull it or let it bleed, but to cut off the blood supply and let it become dead skin. So, after DD was born I pulled a hair from my head, wrapped it around the base of the skin tag (where it met my leg) and lo-and-behold, a few days later it turned black and fell off and never came back. Sounds a bit wierd when written but did the trick!
I developed a skin tag on my labia when pregnant last time - am pregnant again, and it is growing again - size of a small grape now . All to do with hormones... nothing sinister. Should shrink once you deliver. If it bothers you, your GP can arrange to have it lopped off. I quite like mine - I call it my 'Asha Tag' - a momento of the pregnancy. Not so keen on it when it gets caught in my thong though!!! Really best not to do a DIY job - LucyK was very lucky she did not have trouble with hers. Re Thrush - best ask GP or Pharmacy IMO.
Mine wasn't as big as a grain of rice so perhaps why it fell off so easily. But you're right to speak to your GP (although I live abroad and didn't fancy trying to explain in basic german!), and wouldn't have tackled a DIY job on one the size of a small grape...
