Before and after vaginal skin tag removal
Embarrassing vaginal skin tags? We can help
Vaginal skin tags
Firstly, if you have vaginal skin tags, then rest assured that they are harmless from a medical point of view. While vaginal skin tags are not contagious, it is important to have them correctly diagnosed, as they can look similar to genital warts, which can be passed onto partners during intercourse.
Skin tags are growths of skin and are most commonly caused by friction – skin rubbing on skin or clothing – which causes little growths to appear.
The main problem when they appear in the vagina or genital area is that they are can be extremely embarrassing and also uncomfortable, easily irritated by tight clothing such as skinny jeans or gym wear.

What to expect with vaginal skin tag surgery
Vaginal skin tag removal is a minor surgical procedure. That means that it is a simple in and out ‘day case’ appointment.
The procedure is carried out using local anaesthetic to ensure that it is comfortable throughout. Our doctors and surgeons use a fine scalpel to carefully and thoroughly remove the skin tags, leaving a neat wound which will normally heal quickly.
Same day treatment
Depending on the nature of the problem, we may be able to offer vaginal skin tag removal ‘there and then’ at the same appointment as the consultation. This saves the need to book another appointment.
The doctor will explain exactly what to expect at your consultation so that you have all the facts in advance of any procedure.
Genital skin tag removal recovery
Most patients say the recovery experience is far better than they’d expected. Given the sensitivity of the vaginal area, it is surprising how comfortable the recovery is.
We suggest you take standard painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen before the anaesthetic wears off, then manage any pain using normal doses. After the first 24 hours it should feel noticeably better, but continue to take occasional painkillers if necessary.
It is important to allow the best possible healing conditions for your skin tag. Depending on where the skin tag is located, you may be advised to sit in a certain way to avoid putting pressure on any wound for a day or two. This will be explained in the consultation before you decide to go ahead with the treatment.
You should avoid strenuous exercise for a week to avoid straining the wound although it is important to stay active and a daily gentle walk is recommended to boost your body’s natural circulation and healing.
Cleanliness is, of course, paramount in the genital area. Bathe or shower daily and use a mild salt wash around the wound. Keep a healthy diet high in fibre, fruit and veg to avoid any constipation, as any straining in going to the toilet can put a strain on the wound.
Vaginal skin tag removal aftercare
Some wounds might have a small temporary dressing while others may be left open. Aftercare requirements will be fully discussed and explained in your consultation. See our FAQ below for more information what to expect.

*The £50 consultation fee is redeemable against the price of anal skin tag removal treatment treatment when carried out at the same appointment as the consultation (note: same day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).
