Loose skin
I have suffered from mild "piles" about a year ago which i treated with ointment, i now seem to have a loose bit of skin attached to the one side of my anus, is there anyway that this will "shrink" back to normal or is it best to have it removed by a Dr?

LLG, there is no need to have it removed if it doesn’t bother you. If it does bother you, you will have to have it surgically removed as there are no ointments or pilsl that can. Good luck.
