Does anyone have a bidet? I've been thinking about getting one due to my icky anal skin tags which make keeping clean annoying. I was wondering if you have one, how much did it cost? was it hard to install? Where did you get it? and does it help?

Also, in regards to the skin tags- how do you deal with them if you have them? What does your doctor say about the possibility of getting rid of them.

I don't have one but while traveling I saw two different versions. In Spain the bidet was a completely seperate contraption that looked like just the bowl of a toilet. You could turn it on and have water squirt up. Being an American I had never used one and didn't want my first attempt to be in my host parents house.

I just went to Singapore and Thailand. Their setup seemed more convenient. They just had regular toilets with a little hose on the side like the hose on a sink for dishes. There was a drain on the floor as well. Just like the hose for dishes it just had a little push button on it. I again, didn't have the guts to try it. I didn't know how to aim properly so that the water would go in the toilet. I think the drain on the floor was in case it is left on while hung up or something. I wouldn't imagaine it to be sanitary if it were designed to spray dirty fecal water on the floor.

Any ways, I think the Asian version would be easier and cheaper to install. But, I couldnt give you an idea as to how much.

i have skintags, quite a few actually, but i find that the moist flushable towellettes are helpful in keeping clean, as well as pretty soothing

I'm the queen of anal skin tags, and you don't necessarily need a bidet because of them, like praying4healing said, flushable wet wipes are a great way to make sure the area is completely clean...

And you definitely DON'T want to get them removed, they are diseased tissue and I've been warned that having them cut off will mean that the area will not heal and you'll constantly have issues with that and alot of pain.

Back (17 yrs ago) that's where my CD started, not internally and my skin tags were misDX as hemmies, and I had them banded, if they'd have been hemmies they would have shrunk up from the banding, but they weren't so they didn't, it made my CD worse and then I started to flare internally everywhere, the rectom, colon and small intestines too.

Apparently, the only time that it's safe to get them removed is when they shrink down, then the doc can just snip them off because they're not flaring, when they are large then they are flaring and nothing should be attempted at those times.
