I did it! :D

This was probably one of the bravest things I have done in my life, but I am so glad I did it. I am 25 years old, and I have had two anal skin tags since I was like 15, it's so hard to clean, and it makes me so self conscious I hate it. I have asked severl doctors to remove it for me and they wouldn't, so I finally decided to take matters into my own hands. I tried the tying it method, it didn't work. I tied it on the 22nd and left it for about 9 days, nothing was happening. The first 3 days it went a bit yellowish, but then the 4th day it went back to its normal pink colour, and it was just hanging there... And now with this annoying knot around it. (I used tea tree oil every day on the tag though, and I think that made the tag easier to cut). On the 10th day I decided I would just cut it. I purchased some Emla cream(this stuff is amazing!) you can purchase them at any pharmacy store. I used the cream and left it on for a good 45min. I had also asked the doctor to write me a prescription for Amoxicillin for a gum infection, and what I did was I opened up the capsules and poured the powder into a bottle. I couldn't cut the tag myself because it was too close to the anus, and I was afraid of cutting it too deep, or not deep enough, so I asked my mom to help me cut it. I started by cleaning the Emal cream from around the area with an alcohol swab, then I cleaned my scissor with an alcohol swab and gave it to my mom. When She cut the tag it bled a little, but the pain was bearable, thanks to the Emal cream I honestly didn't feel much. Once she cut it, she cleaned around the areas with an alcohol swab and poured my amoxicillin powder on a gauze pad, placed it on the area and used bandage tape to secure it. I took some naproxen after, slept for a couple hours and when I woke up, there really wasn't much pain. Today is the 2nd day, and my wound has already healed, the amoxicillin I used really helped with healing the wound fast :) Tomorrow I will be cutting the 2nd tag, since the first one has already healed so well I just want to get the 2nd one done and over with too. If you do decided to go ahead with cutting it, you will need a pair of sharp scissor, Emla cream, Alcohol swabs, gauze pads, bandage tape and Amoxicillin capsules which you can open up and use the power on the wound after you cut it. If you can't get a prescription for amoxicillin, you should get some Betadine instead, that will be helpful for cleaning the wound and preventing it from getting infected as well. I promised myself that if I did this and it was a success, I would share my story so that I can be of help to anyone else who has these horrible skin tags. To be truthful I was scared, and it took me several tries to finally cut it, every time I would prep everything and when it came time to cutting it, I would chicken out and sometimes drop a few tears lol. But honestly just do it, if you are thinking about it, it will be worth it. A little bit of pain, and you will be free from the tag forever. If you can get someone to help you, it will make it much easier and safer. I hope this was helpful to you you guys, and I wish you all the best! You

How big was the tag? After reading your post I feel we have a similar issue. I've been contemplating cutting it for awhile but keep chickens get out
