Tiny white bumps on perineum and lots of redness on perineum/anus, anus looks bruised and blue. Constipated, hurts to poop. What could this be?

Tiny white bumps on perineum and lots of redness on perineum/anus, anus looks bruised and blue. Constipated, hurts to poop. What could this be?

Do not sqeezed: Do not squeezed the tiny pumps, if you already did, that could explain the bruises and the redness. The tiny pumps are a oil gland cysts best to leave them alone, otherwise they becomes infected if they were squeezed. If you did not, constipation will not cause the redness, and the bruising, unless you had anal sex or a rough sex. If you did not do neither go and see a doctor, please.

Redness and some white bumps between perineum (female) and anus, no itch or burn. Constipated, hurts to poop. Red skin around anus, anus looks bruised?

More info; get check: Any anorectal coitus? Possible irritation or even early herpes infection. Any constipation or hemorrhoid history? That could be a factor. Any recent yeast discharge with vsginal symptoms as well. An in-person exam sounds warranted, especially STD is a possibility. Hope that helps.

My anus is usually pink in colour. It is dark purple right now. Could it just be bruised?

My anus is usually pink in colour. It is dark purple right now. Could it just be bruised?

Hemorrhoids: Yes, you could be bruised but you would hopefully remember trauma prior to bruising. Hemorrhoids are often described as purplish in color. Check out http://goo. Gl/KoW8xo for more info. However, 21yo seems kinda young for hemorrhoids so it's best that you see your FamilyDoc for evaluation. There's no need to be embarrassed as we've seen everything. Besides, we're here to help, not judge. Good luck!

Possible abscess: If it has only been going on for a few days and is getting worse, then it could be a perirectal abscess which need to be drained by a physician. If it's lasted more than a week it has another cause, the list of which is long. Hope this helps.

Pilonidal: cyst can be a possibility. This is a congenital sinus or cyst thst can become symptyomatic if irritated, like excess exercise, ie crunches or situps.

For over 5 years I've been experiencing severe bruising pain in my rectum/anus at night. I've googled it and proctalgia fugax comes up. Please advise.

Need exam: There are many things that can cause rectal pain. It would be a good idea to see your doctor and get a rectal exam. Proctalgia fugax has to do with muscle spasms in the pelvic muscles, but you need to make sure that there is nothing more serious going on.

The safest thing is: To see your gyn for an exam, as long as the bruise is not enlarging or pain getting worse most likely will heal, I also rec you getting your clotting factors checking as that usually should cause a bruise from that.

Redness and burning from perineum (female) to anus. Constipated, always have to strain poop. Anus looks like it's bruised. Hemorrhoid?

Redness and burning from perineum (female) to anus. Constipated, always have to strain poop. Anus looks like it's bruised. Hemorrhoid?

Probably: Can try some hemorrhoid cream for now, but ou should go to your primary care provider to get it looked at to be sure. Ok to get in within the next week or two unless symptoms are more severe. Hope this helps!

I have a small purplish soft lump on the anus, it causes no discomfort nor is it hard or painful or tender?

Most likely.: You've probably got a hemorrhoid that you can see. Although there are other explanations and ideally you want to have a doctor take a look to make sure that's all it is. Best to you!

Small lump under skin near anus. Cannot see it visibly, but can feel it by touch. Slightly tender. Been there for almost 2 weeks, no change?

External thromboses: Most likely it's an external thromboses hemorrhoid which usually resolve on their own, possibly as previous doctor noted it could be a pilonidal cyst expiecially if near tail bone.

I have a small tender lump between my anus and vagina what is it??

I have a small tender lump between my anus and vagina what is it??

Very hard to say: Without examining you it is very hard to say what this is, but a short list would include an external hemorrhoid (most likely since this is painful), a skin tag, or if you've had vaginal deliveries with any tearing this could be a keloid (inflammatory scar) from a vaginal laceration repair.

I had a question about a mass between the anus and vaginal canal, which is hard and tender to the touch..

Mass: This is a very odd position for a mass that is tender. Could be inflammatory, cystic, lymph node, traumatic - please have this evaluated.
