58 Home Remedies for Anal Skin Tags


It's foolish to do anything in the rump area at home other than irrigate it frequently. Sure, it itches and oozes like a SOB, but the complications likely to follow an amateur attempt at removal will be a lot worse, and a lot more expensive.


Hello. Had this for years and find it so embarrising! been to doctors had it checked and got the common response of its not harming you so just leave it basically! so tried different methods of getting rid i found the oils a waste of money! so diving in and doing the tied of method! ! Found it difficult with floss as hard to tie so im now using those tiny hair bands! So much easier to apply will update with progress?! Wish me luck!


I've had an anal skin tag the size of a bean for a few years that has caused me much embarrassment and discomfort. I tried using the dental floss method but after experiencing the pain for one night I want to opt out and just wait for a surgeon. However, because the tag swelled overnight, I can't get to the floss to remove it!! I am numbing it with ice, and trying to cut the floss off with a knife/scissors but it's bloody difficult! Does anybody have suggestions??


I have been trying the tie off method with my skin tag that is located near my anal and vaginal area. I used dental floss and it has cut into the skin because I can see blood near where I tied the floss at the base. The skin tag was originally flatter and smaller than the size of a pea. After trying liquid bandage and failing since the liquid bandage wouldn't stay on since there is a lot of friction in the area, I tried the tie off method.

The skin tag is now very swollen and round instead of flat like before, almost the size of a pea, feels inflamed. The tag was leaking fluid and is still bleeding little by little. I continue to clean it and keep the string on but I'm not sure if I should just try to cut off the string.

The skin tag is slightly darker purple and feels a little cold... does that mean that the string is successfully cutting off blood circulation?
I'm wondering if I should give up since I am experiencing pain, can't really move around, and the area is bleeding slightly. I am unsure of how this skin tag will die and fall off since the 'stalk' or the base of the skin tag is pretty wide. I tied as tight as I could but the base of the tag has so much skin that the diameter seems bigger than normal skin tags. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Remove the string to reduce swelling and risk infection? Keep going because it is working?


I have found the most painless and simple solution! Had a skin tag for years and tried multiple times to tie it off however it either became too painful or the string came off in the night. Recently I had enough of it and thought I would tie it off once and for all however after 3 days the pain was unbearable and I was unable to sleep, I then tried freezing it off, this did nothing but cause infection, after a nightmare 2 weeks I decided to just cut it however this is more painful than many of the stories I have read make out so after many failed attempts I bought a cream called EMLA which completely numbs the area and is designed for this particular use, left the area smothered for 10 minutes and cut with sharp scissors, I felt a slight pinch but basically nothing and I'm so relieved to have it finally gone! It bled a fair bit so I smothered the area with antiseptic and applied cotton padding. This is honestly the best, quickest and most painless solution! I also had painkillers on hand for after when the cream wore off. Trust me, don't go through all the hassle, buy the cream and cut it!


Using clear nail varnish part two:

I forgot to mention, when applying the varnish have a little fan handy. Like one of those Chinese fans. It helps with the stinging when you fan it a bit and also lets it dry quickly to form a hard coating around the tag. Otherwise it sticks to your inner cheek. Lol I know it sounds funny but it works. Happy days 😊


Hi guys

I have tried every home remedy and finally discovered one that works like magic. It's so simple. Mine was so big I thought the only way to get rid of it would be surgery.

Apply clear nail polish on either side of the tag once a day. It stings a bit so be careful when you apply it. After two weeks it shrunk away and finally vanished.

Worked like magic.


Hi guys. I have 3 skin tags around my anus too. One is big and the other two are small. I've been reading all your suggestions but I'm not confident in tying my own skin tag not to mention the pain that most of you have experienced. I'm really coward when it comes to this. I've been planning to go to a doctor but I'm really shy. Most of the doctors who know how to remove anal skin tags are male! Huhu.. What should I do? I may not have a partner because of this :'(((((


I am currently trying the tie-off method as well. I'm 28 years old and have an anal skin tag from a passed fissure. I have tried everything in the book to get rid of them myself (ACV, natural remedies, baking soda and castor oil, wart remover, nail polish, etc.) in hopes of not having to use the tie-off method as I've heard that it is very painful (I can confirm this now) but nothing has proved successful. I am now single again and desperate to get rid of it! Tomorrow will be day 3 of this process and there are some moments that have been excruciating. The tag has hardened and is starting to change colours. If this doesn't work, I'm not sure what I'll do. I've seen a few doctors who will do nothing about it given that it is not causing any health issues and would therefore be cosmetic. I can't even find a place that will remove it cosmetically unless I travel to the U.S. I really hope this works...


I tied my tag up like everyone stated here. It was tied up with thread for a week and a half, it ballooned 10x the size and still was hanging on. I finally sterilized a pair of scissors and cut it off which I should have done at the beginning. Save yourself from pain and un-comfort. Ice it, to numb it and cut it off. Use hydrogen peroxide on it right after and some first aid ointment for a few days. No scaring, no discomfort.
