Brief Answer: Options are tie at neck,cautery,freezing,surgery. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX XXXX Thanks for writing again Occurrence of skin tag is a common problem after healing of anal fissure. Skin tag should be removed as it may trap moisture,fecal material and lead to irritation and infection. You need to be examined by a surgeon. Treatment option depend upon size of tag. Small lesions can be tied at neck with fine cotton and it will fall off after some time due to cutting of blood supply. Other options include thermal cautery,freezing by liquid nitrogen. Larger lesions may need surgical removal. Hygiene is most important after the procedure because of risk of infection from faeces. Laxative,analgesics and sitz baths soothen the area and give pain relief. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
