Symptoms of Anal Skin Tags

Most anal skin tags are symptom free. People who have them only become aware of the tag when they wipe themselves after using the toilet or when washing.
Some anal skin tags can cause problems, such as anal itching, soreness and difficulty cleaning. If a skin tag starts to become more painful, if bleeding or ulceration occur, then medical advice should be sought.
