Hemorrhoids Skin Tag


Hemorrhoids skin tag occur after external hemorrhoids have turned into thrombosed external hemorrhoids.


Then when or if the thrombosed external hemorrhoid has managed to heal itself,  is when in many cases a piece of skin is left hanging (flopping) this is known as a hemorrhoid tag.



SIDEBAR: The thrombosed external hemorrhoid is caused by the vein collapsing and filling up with blood which later becomes stagnant. Then when this heals, is when the vein empties of this stagnant blood, and the skin that has expanded cannot retract hence the skin tag is left.











The good news with these skin tags is that usually there is no pain associated. However in a lot of cases they are taking up space in the middle of the anus thus making it difficult to clean the area properly.
