Conditions with symptom: 'inflamed anus'
My skin tag is in between my anus and vagina but closer to my anus It's really really itchy. It's not inflamed, or red and it's not a wart. Hoping there's a cream.
Hi I have what looks like another anus between my anus and scrotum (much nearer my anus). It will expand and contract in line with my anus (if that makes sense),it is about the same diameter as a finger tip but it causes no pain or discomfort at all and ive had it as long as i can remember. What is it? Should I worry about it?
Hi all, have been suffering for 2 months now with what started as an itchy vagina which then spread to my anus. I have been tested for thrush 3 times and it has come back negative everytime. I have been on two different coursesof anti fungal tablets and have been supplied with all sorts of creams but no luck. The skin on my anus is weeping and the rash is red and inflamed and has spread so far that it is starting to affect my bum cheeks too. I have only been washing with water and have avoided all foods that irritate. I have tried medicated talcum powder but this also has not helped. I wear cotton socks at night too.My doctor has said she cant help as she does not know what is wrong. This problem is so bad now that my walking is impaired and i cannot go out, my sleeping has taken turn for the worse and i know find myself having lack of sleep and restlessness. Please if anyone can offerany advice i would be so geatful.
I am 14 and I have suffered from red inflamed spots on my forehead for about 8 - 10 months and they itch and when I put spot cream from my GP on the inflamed area the spots bulge and get reeder. How can I get rid of the acne?
If you have long hair, keep it off your forehead as much as possible AND DO NOT POP THEM! Wash your face twice daily, cut out all junk food and sugary drinks and drink plenty of water. Don't get stressed :) I used to have loads of spots on my face and body but, after a few months of switching up my diet and routine, I only have a few small bacne scars.
Hii, im 15 and have like spots on the inside of my vagina, abit like yellow heads i leave them alone but it can sometimes become alittle agitated and inflamed. i doesnt hurt or isnt itchy or anything but i was wondering if its anything i need to be worried about or even if it might be thrush? Is there any creams i could use to make the spots less inflamed or even go away and do i need to worrie about it? Thank you. X X
Hey, I'm 22, and my tonsils have been inflamed for years, but I have no pain. I have noticed that they have vain like scars all over them and holes where I can squeeze pus out of, (gross I know) I spoke to a doctor and she said it was normal to have the pus and doesn't sound like tonsillitis. I catch tonsillitis frequently, and doctors never suggested having them removed, but they are now scared and constantly inflamed. Should I be concerned?
I have been having trouble with my anus for the past 18 months or so. My partner and I often have anal sex but I can no longer receive because I have a strong sensitivity just inside my anus. I suspected this was a result of piles but I tried every medication and diet possible to no success. My anus is even too sensitive to check myself with a finger. The area of sensitivity also seems to be swollen at the moment. What could this be?
Hey how are you I am having similar symptoms to what you have had! All I want to really know is, has it gone away for you? I'm scared I will have it for life. It's so irritable and sore, I too participate in anal sex and it's put a real dampener on life for me and my partner at the moment ! I have had it for around 2 months. Thanks ! Please reply . I think it's called procitus which is inclination of the anus.
When my boyfriend was young he had an undescended testicle and had an operation to cure this. Since then his scar on his testicle has inflamed, it looks a little bit like a skin tag but is about 2cm in length and 2cm from the testicle. He won't go to the doctor's about this, but we're both worried it could be something other than an inflamed scar. Could this lead to health problems? or could this be something severe? Will this problem affect fertility?
hi i have had a itchy anus for atleast 3 years now the doctor gave me steroid cream it worked for a short while. it only used to itch me on a night time when i was in bed i was putting it down to being hot in bed but now it is itching during the day now. i was putting it down to not washing my anus after going to the toilet but i now do after every time i go i have even resorted to putting tissue up the crack of my bum when i go to bed. when it itches it gets to the point i really feel like ripping my anus off it is that bad. i am hoping someone can help me sort this out once and for all as it is now getting me down.
I have had these symptoms. My itchyness started around three years ago i used to wake my self up itching it. The sensation i got from itching though made me want to keep itching till it was sore and moist. Three years on and still counting i get itchy spellls aswell as blood cumming from my anus. The doctor prescribed me with a cream called trimovate. It s really good but once u use it for a week and stop the sensations come back
Hello Dr. Can Piles be not next to the anus? Since last Friday a few painful lumps appeared in my bum, but about 1cm from the actually anus, could this still be haemorrhoids?
