Conditions with symptom: 'tags'
Hi I have previously been to the doctor who has told me I had skin tags on the edge and inside flap of my vagina, I was advised by her to remove them with a piece of cotton to stop the blood flow and they will fall off, I did this and the tags fell of successfully, however three years later (same partner) I have had two skin tags grow again!! is this normal? it seems to have happened after I have shaved my vagina could this have caused the tags to grow? or could this be something more serious like Genital warts? its really worrying me I don't want o have sex as don't want to pass anything onto my partner (female)please help. If this helps I had a cervical smear last year that was negative.
Hi, re skin tags, I have seen advertised on the net various creams/oils that can be applied that dry out these tags. Has anybody tried them and do they work? The ones I have seen all seem to be based in America, is there something available in this country?
I think I have skin tags around my vagina, and they are in one line down both sides of the opening. I did have some on my clitoris and they fell off so I was wondering if it is skin tags?
I have what seems to be two smallish skin tags on my inner labia near the entrance to my vagina which have appeared in the past few months, should I get them checked by a doctor? They don't hurt at all, haven't increased in size and I think they probably are skin tags?
Basically i have a lot of skin tags around my anus and theu flare up when i go to the toilet and some times without going. I feel very uncomfortable with them. When i was younger i only had the one which never caused a problem but now im 20 and more have appeared. Iv seen the doctor but hes offered me cream but it doesnt seem to work that good. Is this normal for skin tags to do this and what can i use to help prevent soreness ?
I have 3 very large,what I presume are skin tags on my anus. They are very large and very very itchy. Had these since I gave birth to my youngest child 10 years ago and I can not cope any more. They itch at night mostly, making me scratch until they bleed. Also recently I have discovered 2 small spots in side the tags. Please help me as I feel like I can not cope any more.
Hi, after suffering with 2 growing anal skin tags for about 5 years I decided I'd had enough. They were itchy and bled every time I had a bowel movement. I knew that my GP would dismiss them but I'm well trained at getting what I need out of the NHS so I exaggerated my problems slightly to get a referral to the hospital. Some people might disagree with this but living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world and having been working and making National Insurance contributions since the age of 16 I do not see why I should have to put up with these problems. Anyway I finally had my surgery on Tuesday. Since the surgeon was going to be elbow deep in my rectum anyway he said he would tie off/band any internal hemorrhoids. I was warned that cutting out the skin tags would most probably leave smaller tags/scar tissue as part of the healing process. I do have 2 small lumps about the size of a peppercorn but it was still worth it. The pain was pretty bad after, just a constant throbbing and there was quite a bit of blod and pus seeping out constantly. The best advice I can give if you do decide to go for this is start yourself on a sky high fibre and water diet 3 days or so before the surgery and take at least a week off work. Unfortunately i got constipated and wasn't able to have to have a BM until 3 days after surgery. The subsequent pain was the worst I've ever had and ended up having a panic attack and almost passing out on the toilet. Good luck! Its such a common problem so don't feel embarrassed about going to your doc. I'm only 26 and have had no kids and still got them. overall im happy with the results.
My grandaughter-4years old-has got small hard bumps on her arms,legs,stomach and near her privates.Her doctor has said they are skin tags, but I have skin tags and her bumps dont look anything like mine.could hers be warts? They dont look very nice ,is there anything we can use to get rid of them?
I have dozens of skin tags on my thighs and where my knicker elastic is and as I also have a vaginal prolapse and wear pads the combination means the tags become sore and chapped. I have used Sudocreme and a general antiseptic without success, my GP can't remove them as their cauteriser no longer works (!) and we cannot afford private treatment. I have decided to try a product that has all positive reviews - it may be liquid nitrogen - as there is no alternative. What are the risks?
I watched the last edition of EB and you had a young man that had skin tags on his penis and you proscribed liquid nitrogen,i have many skin tags around my neck and under arms and i have tried to purchase LN on line but i am having difficulty. could you please inform me where i can purchase liquid nitrogen
You can buy freeze treatments but they are sold as treatments for veruccas/warts. You can get them in practically any chemist off the shelf- costs around £10. It works! - you spray the skin tag for around 30 sec until it turns completely white, then within 24 hours the skin tag falls off.
I'm 25 years old and I had my first born 6months ago and today I noticed something while I was washing in the shower. Where my wee hole is there is a piece if thin skin about 2cm ling hanging on and in my vagina there are two skin tags and my cervix is right at my opening. It kinda looks like minced beef. I'm hoping its just skin tags and a prolapsed uterus, but am really unsure. I suffer from herpes type two and my outbreaks are always mild little blisters never pieces of skin hanging. Please help.
