I have skin tags just inside the rectal opening with small whitish tips, it causes itching and burning sensation, is there any natural remedies to get rid of it

Anal skin tags, also called acrochordon, are caused by any kind of complication in the rectal region like infections, injuries or a surgery. Skin tags or tabs develop anywhere on the body because of irritation or friction. The most common cause for tabs occurring on the rectal area is piles or hemorrhoids. When suffering from this problem, bowel movements become difficult and the skin gets irritated every time one passes stool. Though skin tags are harmless, when they affect the anal opening, they could mean a serious problem like clogged anal gland or tear in the anal canal. So, you must consult a doctor to rule out any serious problem. Also, irritation like itching and burning is caused by poor hygiene like constant presence of fecal matter in the area and wiping of the area. Though anal tags are not dangerous or life threatening to overall health, they are quite annoying because of the discomfort that they cause. You can have the tag removed surgically with laser treatment or get it frozen with nitrogen. You’d need to take a lot of care of your skin after the removal.

Remedies To Deal With Anal Skin Tags

There are some ways in which you can deal with skin tags yourself. No matter where the affected skin is, you can completely cover the skin tag with clear nail polish twice a day. This works on any skin tag on neck, face, legs, buttocks, and anal region too. Another remedy is making a thick paste of castor oil and baking soda mixed together and applying it on the skin tag several times a day. It will take about two weeks for the skin tag to dry and fall off. You can also soak in warm bath for about 20 minutes, pat dry the skin tag and apply apple cider vinegar with a cotton swab. Applying tea tree oil is also quite effective. Both these products have astringent properties that can get rid of the skin tags even from the anal region. Before applying any product, please ensure that your skin does not have allergic reaction to any of it.

To prevent the skin tag from enlarging and preventing anal tear, make sure your bowel movements are easy. For that, drink lots of water everyday, eat lots of raw vegetables, fruits, and green leafy vegetables. Avoid fried, junk, oily, and spicy food as they cause constipation. Include high fiber products like apple, pears, beetroot, and papaya in your diet.
