Nervous about Skin Tag Removal

Postby gail » 06 Jul 2017, 23:16

Hi,
In two weeks I am getting a small skin tag removed by a general surgeon that is close to my anus but not directly one it. Reading horror stories about the pain of the injection of the local anaesthesia is making me nervous about it. I am generally really good with needles and did not think about it until reading some peoples experiences. I can deal with the after math pain but the shots are freaking me out. I was wondering if anyone had any good experiences with the removal/pain of the local anaesthetic?

I've experienced local anesthesia in the bum four times in the past year and it never got any easier. I'm sorry but I have no tips for you. Just remember that the pain is temporary, and you'll be done in no time. Tensing up and being anxious beforehand can make things worse but it's easier said than done to relax. Try to have someone you know in the exam room with you, that will be very helpful.

Thank you patience_and_healing. I just went in to get it removed 2 days ago and it was a piece of cake. The local anesthesia was not as bad as I thought, just a minor sting. The whole procedure was over in less than 5 minutes and it is day 2 and I have minimal pain. I am glad I went and got it done.
