So i had a skin tag on the opening of my anus...super embarrassing!!!! It had been there for about 2 years and was the size of pea, maybe a little bigger. I had my doc look at it to make sure it was a tag. So i researched the web and came across many sites, including this one, saying that tying it off works well. I was scared at first thinking that it would just make things worse, but realized that nothing was worse than having it there!! So i tied some dental floss around it on a Sunday morning. It was uncomfortable but i read that if its not, its probably not tight enough to work. About 2 days later i also tied a tampon string around over the floss (because the floss can start digging into your skin). I applied Neosporin a few times a day and.....VOILA!!! It fell off the following Thursday!! 5 days!!! I was so happy and relieved! Just make sure to keep it clean and expect slight blood from time to time. All in all it was not bad, just awkward. But im glad i tried it!!
