    I seem to have a lot of spots around my vaginal area and one particular lump that is very hard between my vagina and my anus. I always bleed when I empty my bowels and my anus is very itchy. My discharge is smelly these days and there is quite a lot of it. What do I seem to be describing?

    Smelly discharge and lumps are both symptoms of things that need treating. You really need to see your local doctor, but don't be embarrassed about going because they are trained and deal with all kinds of problems every day. In the nicest way possible, you're just another person on the agenda, your problem won't stand out from the rest. Good luck.

    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

    I'm 15 and i noticed quite small purple lumps around my anus which get a little bigger and more purple when i push. They aren't painful or itchy but sometimes i notice a little bit of blood on the toilet roll and i don't go to the toilet that much (around twice a week). I'm pretty sure they are haemorrhoids but not sure if they are internal or external. i also have a small skin coloured lump a bit above my anus which isn't painful or itchy or anything, does it sound like a skin tag?? please help.

    I have been suffering for a number of years from an extremely itchy anus. The itching is around the entrance to the anus, as well as immediately inside the entrance. Try as I might to ignore this itching, I cannot and I invariably scratch the area until it bleeds. I also notice a smell on my finger which I can't identify (not cheesey). After passing a motion, I find that I usually have to douche the area, otherwise I will not have a clean anus - I rarely have a number 2 without having to do so afterwards.. Any ideas....this is driving me crazy.

    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?

    i have an itchy anus and vagina around the clitiros area. Also what feels liked cracked skin in the vagina area. Can i use trimovate on both areas? I was given this cream for the anus which seemed to work previously but has re occured. This only seems to happen at night time.

    Since im sexually active 2 years ago, i have these itchy lumps under my genital, between my sack and anus. It is only itchy when i touch or scratch it, if untouched it's absolutely normal. When scratching i can feel some pain as well as the itchiness. Does this mean that i have chlamydia? or another STI?

    Hi, I've got a few pink/ red spots on the head of the penis. They dont itch or hurt much. I've also got a small boil near the anus which is extremely itchy at times and benign otherwise.When it itches, it causes other itchy spots to appear near the anus and on the buttocks. These stay for a few minutes before vanishing. The main boil however has been there for a few weeks. Apart from this I've lost pleasure during sex/ erections. I've also lost sex drive to an extent. I still get erections but without the pleasure or reduced pleasure. It also feels while peeing that there is some blockage in the urinary path. I've had unprotected sex once a few months ago. I'm really worried . Please let me know what could be the reason and what is the treatment/cure for the same. Regards, Vicky

    I've had the boil near my anus and I had to go to the hospital so they could lance it off and drain it cause if they didn't it would have gotten bigger and spread but what the doctor told me was that the pores on our anus can get cloged and as the bacteria from the sweat collects in the pore the white blood cells drain into the sore to kill the bacteria but die there as well turning into smelly puss that can spread and make more sores if punctured or scratched and the puss clogs another pore so in my oppinion go to the hospital or a general practioner to lance,drain and it and patch .

    Hi i had a baby 6 weeks ago today and ive been suffering with a really itchy anus hole, it itches that mych it makes me twich then i have to use toilet paper to itch it, i also have a lump covering my anus hole so when i poo it really hurts.

    I have suffered from itchy anus for 10 years now. I have seen lots of different doctors and even had hospital appointments to check for a split bowel etc. I have been told it is the same as athletes foot and given stronger cream to treat it. Nothing works! Until you have had this you don't know just how bad it can be. No matter how clean you keep it, wear the right underwear, don't use perfumed soaps etc but nothing works. I have even resorted to surfing the net looking for a cure and found comments on using viniger, yoghurt etc but still nothing works. I feel like crying with it all the time, sometimes it is so bad, sleep is impossible. If any one can help or knows of a cure please share.

    My best guess would be that you have thrush. It is usually easily treated and very common. Struggling to go to the loo would be unrelated to that if I am correct. It has been a while since you left this posting, so I hope you found some help, but if not, you can buy thrush treatment at your chemist, over the counter.

    I have had an itchy anus since having my daughter nearly 2 years ago. The skin is so dry it splits around the anus when I poo or when I have sex. Its so depressing. Have been given all sorts of creams by the doctor and eventually got a referal to dermatologist who said it is like eczema and just to use steroid cream. I am so unhappy about it. Now just don't feel quite right and have been getting dizzy spells. Just dont get why I would have eczema on my anus after having my baby. Am fed up of asking doc to investigate further. Any idea what it really is?

    About 4years ago my boyfriend accidently "fingered" my anus and after I never had any problems?but 3yrs ago when i go to toilet it is so painful and has a very very sharpe feeling, plus the amount of blood that comes from that area you would think I was on a period!! Plus at times my anus can get itchy? I had a look and have a lump outside my anus hole just like that mans on Thursday night but not as big or as rashy looking! But when watching how you fix his problem has put me off even more from getting it looked at!! Is ther any other option and Is it piles?

    Hi. I'm a 30 years old male and noticed 4 months ago that my anus was very itchy, especially after going toilet for a number 2. I used e45 to help relieve the itchy feeling which helped but about 2 months ago noticed little bumps around my anus, I visited my local GP who believed they were skin tags and gave me more cream, the cream didn't seem to help at all and now more have developed which I'm concerned about. Hope u can help Thanks

    I have a rather big one at the entrance to my anus and have been on 3 different creams to stop the irritation and soreness and have also been on laxatives to try and help and nothing has worked. I want to go and get it removed as it has caused a tear in the entrance to my anus making it extremely painful to go to the toilet and when i do it bleeds but my doctor doesn't seem to care and is avoiding wanting to remove it. :(

    I'm 15 and I have had a really sore and irritated anus for some time now. Before I would itch till it left. Now I know what it is and try to refrain. I have seen small white worms in my anus and yesterday it bled a bit. I am too embarrassed to tell my father because we don't have that relationship. I do remember my younger brother once complaining of an extremely itchy bum for a period of time and his aunt put baby cream over his anus and he hasn't complained since. Are there ways to rid of it without medication?

    I've had an itchy anus for about two weeks now. It started off with my bottom getting really sweaty and itchy throughout the day so I tried to keep myself as dry as possible. Now it's itchy all the time and small white stuff has started to appear. Should I go to my doctor or is their anything I can buy to get rid of it?

    Sounds likely. You don't have to be sexually active , it's really nothing to do with it. Bacteria just happens to get in a cause thrush especially wearing tight clothes etc
