It's been over a year now with perineal tears after sexual intercourse. Please help. It's very uncomfortable.

It's been over a year now with perineal tears after sexual intercourse. Please help. It's very uncomfortable.

Internet Medicine: I am sure you can understand but there really are limits to internet medicine. Tears in the perineum are in no way usual, normal or common. To have symptoms for over a year makes this even more unusual. I honestly think there is no way to help you with out a direct examination and perhaps even testing as to why your skin is not healing. Please get to the family clinic soon for an examination. ...Read more

Hard to say: The local physician would need to see it first and assess and see if it could be performed in the office or require going to a surgi center, pending need for local or general anesthesia. Ideal result will be to bring the tissues together to widen the region to lessen stress and discomfort. May go well for you. ...Read more

Urologist evaluation: Varicoceole may be a cause for pain. Do you try to keep the scrotum elevated? You should ask for a referral to a Urologist to evaluate you for surgery.

What medical condition causes boils to appear on your body consistantly even on the paraneal area. Rash on testicles have taken antibiotics and use skin creams, noting has seem to work. Please help

What medical condition causes boils to appear on your body consistantly even on the paraneal area. Rash on testicles have taken antibiotics and use skin creams, noting has seem to work. Please help

It: It sounds as though you may have a skin infection with abscesses or "boils". These usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. No one knows why some people are susceptible to getting boils while others are not. There is a type of neutrophil-associated immune deficiency that can predispose you to boils, so it might be worth getting tested.

Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should go to your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develops fever, chills, or feels ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately.

You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Some doctors also advocate bathing once a week with a 1/4 cup of bleach in a half-full bathtub or washing with chlorhexadine to decrease the bacterial count on your skin. You may also want to consider using intranasal bactroban (mupirocin) twice a day for a month to eliminate the staph bacteria living in your nose. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it normal for my perineal area to have a tightening pain from coughing extremely hard? Only happens rarely

"Normal" is relative: If you're coughing hard enough, you may be squeezing rib, chest wall, abdominal & pelvic muscles.
