Q&A: Should I be embarrassed by a skin tag above my anus?

Should I be embarrassed by a skin tag above my anus?

I’m a 19 year old girl. I just discovered that I have a skin tag above my anus. If you don’t know what a skin tag is, it’s common, benign skin growths that look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. They are harmless growths, it doesn’t mean I have any disease or anything but I’m really uncomfortable about it. I have intercourse with the person that I’m seeing right now I don’t want him to see it and think that there’s anything wrong with me or something, or think I have an STD or something. I don’t want to tell him about it either. It’s embarrassing. What do I do? I’m so upset right now. Thank you for your time.

Hi Lizzie

If you are embarrassed about the skin tag, you can easily remove it with our skin tag removal kit – maybe your mum could help you? However, I wouldn’t worry about your boyfriend seeing the skin tag – he won’t know its there! A skin tag is completely harmless so unless it is really bothering you or causing problems when you use the toilet, you can just leave it alone.
