I have a large amount of oedematous skin tags, but my colo-rectal surgeon has never mentioned having them removed, and honestly, as far as I am concerned, I don’t often have people peering at my bum-hole so I don’t see why it should matter. My surgeon also said they should shrink down a lot once I am in remission. They have been HUGE at times but have shrunk quite a but since starting remicade. I have only had two treatments of remi and they started shrinking the very next day after the 1st treatment!
Of course this won’t happen to everyone on remicade, but it worked for me and has worked for many others, and I didn’t really have much choice in my opinion – with a fistula and abscess wound to heal, Remi was the best thing ever. It is closing it all up after a year of abscess hell.
