i think i got a hemmorriod a few months ago, but its still there! it doesnt hurt, just hangs there like a skin tag, but its very embarassing. I know that you are supposed to cut skin tags off but something tells me not to cut this off. Any ideas on how to make it go away?

  • It would be best if you had a doc checked it. It is not wise to treat something yourself when you are uncertain about what it could be. Hemmoroids are not treated by cutting them off, so I wouldn't advised the technique until you had it checked.

  • its probably the skin left over from an old hemorroid...I had that and had the doc burn it out...hurt like a mother so get silver nitrate which he neglected to tell me about! Needless to say a trip to the er and explaining my "pain in the **s" problem was even more embarrassing than the surgery!!
