6 Comments for the Anal Skin Tags Home Remedy


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!

Are you still alive??
My skin tag is flat like someone else mentioned above, flat and it has a large base. It seems like it's alive. sometimes it gets bigger, sometimes it shrinks. It really bothers me when I sit. Also can't wear thongs anymore, really irritates it.
So you just chopped it off and you are fine????


Haha yes i'm still alive, I had so much distress trying to get rid of it and tried everything but that cream really is a life saver. It's been a few months now and the tag hasn't shown any signs of growing back and it's a huge relief to have it gone. I'd strongly recommend buying the cream to numb it and then cutting it off as I mentioned. Good luck.


Where do you get the cream


You were very lucky. Some anal skin tags can be complicated even for a colon-rectal surgeon. Loss of continence could arise. I just had the surgery and am glad I did it the safe way.



I wanted to ask did you have intense swelling and painful post procedure ? Can you describe your post experience ?


Sorry for the late reply, I got the cream from boots pharmacy, I asked for an anaesthetic cream and this is what was given to me. After having cut the tag off and applying cream the bleeding stopped and just turned into a normal cut, it was a little painful that night but nothing compared to when I tried to tie it off with string. The next day I felt fine and within a few days it had completely healed, no problems since then! Trust me this is the best method if you don't want to see a doctor, very little pain and easy to do!
