So, anal skin tags can be safely removed with the help of a doctor. The doctor will freeze the tag by liquid nitrogen, leading it to dry and ultimately fall off from the skin. This method is also used for hemorrhoid skin tag removal as well as for rectal skin tags.
Causes It is though that people who are overweight are more likely to be afflicted by skin tags and women are more prone towards developing skin tags, compared to men. Anal skin tags are usually formed as a result of imperfect healing from anal fissures (tears), previous anal surgery, perianal hematologist and from complicated or difficult childbirth.
The cause of cryptitis may be due to an inflammatory process in the adjacent areas, or a disturbance in the acid pH balance of the rectum. Trauma from constipated stools, infections introduced from external sources, parasites, foreign debris, etc., may also initiate cryptitis.
Papillae must be differentiated from polyps, which they resemble. A biopsy may be helpful in this regard. Polyps are covered by mucosa, may bleed, and are not painful. Papillae are covered by skin, do not bleed, can be painful, and may protrude from the anus if enlarged. Polyps are often pre-cancerous, whereas papillae are not.
A successful treatment option for chronic idiopathic pruritus ani has been documented using a clean, dry and apply (if necessary) methodology. The person is instructed to follow this procedure every time the urge to scratch occurs. The treatment makes the assumption that there is an unidentified bacteria in the feces that causes irritation and itching when the feces makes contact with the anal and perianal skin during defecation, flatulation or anal leakage (particularly during sleep). Cleaning the area with a disposable moist towel (baby wipe) is required to remove all traces of fecal matter. Water alone, even with a sprayer or shower is not adequate and water with soaps can cause additional irritation. The next step is to pat the area dry (wiping is too rough) with toilet tissue. If persons with pruritus ani do not need to scratch after these steps they are instructed to do nothing else. If the urge to scratch is still present they are instructed to apply Pranicure ointment and to rub it in until the itch is satisfied. The goal of the treatment is to reduce the use of ointment until it is either no longer needed or until use of the ointment is minimized.

You can also apply a combination of lime essential oil and avocado oil.
