Thrush doesn't seem to be going away and has gotten more sore since using clotrimazole cream for 3 days, also have bleeding around the anus now, help?

Upgrade in treatment: It sounds like you may need an 'upgrade' in treatment if your candidal symptoms aren't any better. Sometimes I'll prescribe oral anti fungal medicines to rout this kind of infection. I would guess that's what you need - so please call your doc for a follow up. Germs these days are getting tougher, and you hate to think that yeast has some resistance but it could. Time to call out the 'big guns'. ...Read more

Possible IBD?: Inflammation (infection, ischemic, ibd) of large intestine = colitis. For ibd: ulcerative colitis primarily involves the lining of the large intestine whereas crohn's is transmural (full thickness involvement by) inflammation of any part of the GI tract (from mouth to anus). Both involve similar pathways of inflammation, are similarly treated, increase risk of colon cancer, & may require surgery. ...Read more

I have haemorrhoids and it's bleeding. Have swollen anus as well. What would u recommend?

Warm baths: Hemorrhoids are the most common 'disease' of humans the veins of our anus swell.
Warm baths with epson salts help reduce swelling. A mild cream like anusol sooths the area.
If swelling and bleeding persists, do see a doctor. If needed, in office procedures like 'banding' or 'infrared coagulating' can be used. Surgery is a last resort, but other procedures do help. Peter wilk, md. ...Read more

Three days ago I had an external pill on the left side of my anus without pain or bleeding and I had constipation my age is 23 what is wrong?

No worries...: Hemorrhoids or "piles" are normal anatomic veins at the anus. They are also referred to as "anal cushions". If you sit or stand a lot, or have constipation or diarrhea, these veins can enlarge and become evident. They might cause itching, pain or bleeding. They will shrink with time once the triggering event is abated. Good luck! ...Read more

Internal anal pain alternating sides, few days of the left, few days on the right then back again. No bleeding at all. Slipping feel in rectum/anus?

Hemmorhoids: Are most common cause of anal pain, but this is a strange pain pattern. Slipping is not a typical complaint, no idea what is meant by it. You don't give any other information about age, other conditions, etc. So this would be a pure guess. You really should have an exam to get to the cause of this. Good luck! ...Read more

I am bleeding from my anus. I'm bleeding internally but it's very close to the end of the rectum. I think it might be internal hemorroids, help please?

I am bleeding from my anus. I'm bleeding internally but it's very close to the end of the rectum. I think it might be internal hemorroids, help please?

Perhaps: Rectal bleeding should always be initially evaluated by a doctor. Yes it is certainly possible that it is hemorrhoids (eat plenty of fiber daily) but other causes of rectal bleeding are common in your age group such as inflammation of the rectum (proctitis) or other causes. A scope that looks into the rectum will aid in the diagnosis and rule out serious causes. ...Read more

Can there be any health risks in having public toilet water in contact with a bleeding anus?

Can there be any health risks in having public toilet water in contact with a bleeding anus?

Not likely.: If you mean a few drops of water from the toilet flushing then the answer is not likely. Any open wounds or sores are always predisposed to infection. But if you cleaned yourself well after using the toilet then you should be ok. What I would be more worried about is why you have a bleeding anus? Hemorrhoids? Laceration? Ulcer? ...Read more

I fingered my girlfriends anus and it started bleeding and she says it doesn't hurt but im freaking out, will she be alright?

I fingered my girlfriends anus and it started bleeding and she says it doesn't hurt but im freaking out, will she be alright?

Yes and not pregnant: Hi Stephen434
Closely clipped fingernails are easier to keep clean and less likely to damage delicate tissues. Or use a finger cot. The anus is generally a healthy place, and a small scratch or cut will generally heal. Maybe a little antibiotic ointment applied gently twice a day. I'm sure your girlfriend will appreciate concern, but freaking out doesn't help. ...Read more

Took 4 month old sons temp rectally. Now his anus is bleeding, but I don't know what I did? Should I take him in to be seen? Or what should I do?

Anal fissure: It would be unusual to cause rectal bleeding with a rectal thermometer. Be sure to use Vaseline on end of thermometer for lubrication when using it. If he has constipation or hard stools, he may have a tiny tear, like a paper cut size, that causes bleeding when touched or when passes bowel movement. Use Vaseline on rectum 2-3 times a day for few days, if no resolution, see MD. ...Read more
