Hi,

If the skin tag is causing pain, discomfort etc it can be surgically removed.

Surgery is rarely needed for most infants and children with an acute anal fissure. Some fissures may take as long as 8 weeks to resolve with conservative management. Again, be mindful that if the fissure has not healed following medical therapy, the diagnosis may be in question, and an examination under anesthesia is warranted. If the fissure persists despite medical management, the operative procedure in children and infants is an open lateral internal sphincterotomy.
