    Haemorrhoids

    Also known as 'piles', this is a condition where the blood vessels in and around the anus become swollen and inflamed, subsequently forming small lumps. Read more →

    Is it possible to get thrush around your anus? 2 days ago i hot in the bath and realised i was quite sore although heartfelt nothing all day leading up to it. When got out i was really sore around my anus, about an inch wide all around it and up to my vagina. Its generally red but with a raised bumpy edge which made me think maybe thrush? I tried sudocreme then thought maybe canestan would be better but its not helped so i have resorted to my old faithful tea tree and witch hazel cream as its cooling and soothing. I haven't had unprotected sex, or any sex actually lol. I bathe regularly and dry well so i just don't know but it is rather embarrassing :-(

    Yes its possible! I went to my doctor and he prescribed me with 6 day cream for my vaginal area it has improved a little bit but need something directly on it. The thrush seems to get to the analysis very easily especially with women as there very close neighbour's.

    I've actually got the same thing! Had it since first bank holiday in May. Started off very itchy then went really sore and what appeared to be bumpy red skin and my family who looked at it said it then seemed slightly blistered. So naturally I went doctors; they have me piles cream, that failed then Daktakort-steroid cream which relieved the soreness so I could actually walk again easier without the pain but now the itchiness is still present and all that there is now is like red bobbly bits (not best explanation I know). I returned to the docs they referred me to a sexual health clinic as thought it may be herpes got tested for everything whilst there and it wasn't neither was it any other STI. The doctors at the clinic have told me to stop using the steroid cream and just bath in salt water but it's so itchy still I just want it to go away :( if the witch hazel works for you let me know as ours sound similar x

    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. I'm a 30yr old male. I believe I have piles however they don't irritate me & neither are they particularly sore. That said, whenever I pass a stool, my anus bleeds a lot (evidenced on the toilet paper). I'm unsure as to whether this is the piles or another related issue with my anus?

    Get your bowels checked and colon checked too. If u dont have any pain or lumps around your anus the it may nor be haemarroids or fissures (tear), because both of these hurt! Not trying to scare u but could be bowel cancer. Get checked!

    I'm a girl of 17 and For the past two months, when I go to the toilet for a poo it's very very painful. It feels as if my anus is ripping. I had a look last a few weeks ago and there was a sort of light purpley bit on the rim leading inside of my anus. I then had a look a few days ago and it looks as if a piece of skin has been ripped off. It's extremely sore when I poo and a little stingy when I touch it. Throughout the past few years I've experienced poos that almost feel too big to come out and it hurts. What's wrong with me ?

    It probably ripped at some point because your poos are too big and solid, and now it can't heal because it gets pulled open again every time. I have the same problem sometimes but not as bad. I'm guessing constipation is your main problem, get some laxatives or try drinking more water and eating something like prunes.

    I have blister like spots on my buttocks which are increasing everyday. They are a little sore but not itchy. The arrival of these spots has coincided with a very sore chapped anus. I do not feel unwell in any other way so am baffled by this?!?!?

    Okay, my boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years. We have unprotected sex and neither of us have ever been diagnosed with any STDs. For the past few months every time we have sex I get a burning itching feeling around my vagina and anus. I am prone to yeast infections and UTIs but they have never felt like this before. Now, about two days ago, he put a finger inside my anus. We have had anal sex before without any issues, but today I have been feeling very sore in that area. I just took a look in the mirror and I have a swollen red bump there....what is happening to me!?! We have never had an issue with any sort of STDs or rashes. What is this?

    Hi, I'm a 20 yearl old male and for about 2 years now (it might even be longer I can't recall not having this problem actually) I've been suffering with a sore, itchy anus. There has been a 'discharge' as well, sometimes it is a clear like liquid that won't stop, on bad days it has soaked through to my jeans. Other times it is a very pale yellow-green greasy mucus like build-up. It smells bad and has been very embarrasing for me, it also itches more when the mucus is there and sometimes that is unbearable. There is blood coming from my anus too but only after I pass a stool (I have checked my stool and it contains no blood). I'm too embarrased to go to my doctor could somebody please help me. Thank you.

    These problms are more common than people think. No body talks about them though so people suffer in silence. Your doctor will be able to help.People go to doctor with These sorts of problems every week.

    I would go to the doctor asap, you would be surprised what they see everyday. You are just a human body to them nothing to be embarrassed about. or go straight to A&E when its bad and be seen by someone there.Must get it checked out though.

I can not stop myself from scratching which then makes my anus sore. this is a nightly occurence, can you offer any advice.

    Hi, I suffer from IBS but recently it has hurt to use the loo as I get a sharp knife like pain in my anus when i retract my muscles. I frequently have a almost clear gel from my anus when i wipe. I have had a hard sore lump on the outside for a long time but never thought anything of it as i assumed it was just the way my anus was but now I'm beginning to become worried. After coming home from work early due to this knife like pain that I've had for the past week or so, I have used a latex glove to feel just inside where the pain is coming from. It appears to be like a reasonably hard lump with like a very sore opening between that and the wall that it is clinging too. What could it be and what should I do, I would prefer to see a specialist rather than my GP

    id recommend skintagzap on ebay or skintagzap.co.uk I have used it and my friend recommended it to me- and i was very sceptical - however it worked - took a few days on small tags and I had some big ones too which took a couple of weeks but they vanished and no pain and not a mark. just an idea - good luck :)

    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 cannot diagnose you and it is important that you receive medical advice asap. But it sound similar to my condition. I felt pressur behind the anus that was not relieved by opening my bowels but actually felt a bit worse. I had an abcess (causing the pressure) and an opening into my anal passage linked to the abscess by a fistula. When I opened my bowels a small piece of poo would get inside the hole and reinfect the abcess, hence the pain after.

    I have these really red pimple looking things on my bottom. they are really sore and swell up. I have one right near my anus and it is really sore can anyone help with what it could be.

    I recently found a lump on my anus but it didn't bother me at all at first except it was a bit itchy. Then it got sore and now it can be quite sore and bleeds quite abit. I'm pretty sure i have piles (although there's only one). Is it possible that i can just go away? or is there anything i can do to get rid of it without telling anyone about it. I'm 15 btw

    i have always had an itchy anus but 2 year ago tried "Cortopin 1% w/w cream" solved the problem after aplying for three nights and hasn't bothered me since only once in a blue moon!:)

    I have a tear around an inch long from my anus going up in between my butt cheeks. My anus is a little sore but its the split in between my butt cheeks that is most painful. It constantly stings but there has been no blood or pus or anything. Any ideas what it may be or how to treat it? I have been applying sudocrem (nappy rash cream) will that help?
