    hi Mitushi

    I'm hoping someone responds to your query as I would like my tag removed as it traps poo and becomes inflamed and ulcerated from time to time causing lots of chafing and discomfort

    have found organic cocunut oil to be soothing

      After wiping with wipes, sitz bath after BM helps maintain anus clean..

    hi there , if it is causing you pain or other problems, leave it alone i had surgery for one skin tag almost a year ago and it has been a nightmare ever since . I ended up with a fissure .. deep one that would not heal.. had to have LIS SURGERY for it and it still has not healed completely . that was 9 months ago .. to top it off , now i have 2 skin tags... bigger than the first one that i had removed for cosmetic reasons . so my advice is to leave it alone .
