Skin tag removal

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had botox on my fissure but they didn't remove my skin tag. My skin tag gets very swollen and makes it harder to clean the area.

Anyone had a skin tag removed ? what was the recovery like?

    Hi Nicole, I'm also wondering about this. I'm currently deciding between trying botox or doing the kenalog procedure and I'm leaning toward kenalog since Dr Feingold will most likely want to remove the skin tag and I think that will significantly increase my chance for fully healing. Please keep us updated and let us know if you get it done. Good luck with everything.

    i've had a tag removed. the pain was intense. almost as bad as and similar to LIS incision pain. the pain peaked day 3, then day 4 it felt so much better. by day 7 it was completely healed.
