I have a row of very painful itchy blisters under my right breast.I also have a burning itching in my rectum area.Do you think these 2 issues related?
Hard to know: without seeing you, Maryamj, but it sounds like you might have a fungal infection which can occur in any tight space where there is trapped sweat and is called intertrigo. These infections are especially common in diabetics, so you should be checked for that, especially if you have a family history or are overweight. Meanwhile, try Cruex powder and keep the areas very dry, perhaps with tissue. ...Read more
I have a number of very small skin tags around my anus. They're not painful, but they do tend to get itchy. Periodically blood can be seen.
Itchy anus for a few months and is painful when I go to the toilet. Can see 2 white tags half a cm from anus. Perineum is also swollen.
Anal Fissure: What you described suggest anal fissure. It would help to keep your stool soft to give the tears time to heal. Use a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water so that your urine is colorless. If it does not get better in three months after having consistently soft stools it would be time to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Anus is really itchy but doesn't stay long then comes back but not painful. DR told I have hemorrhoids before. Any remedy for itchy? What is this?
I have rash around my anus and its itchy im worried that it might be STI. When I scratch it becomes painful. It is so irritating.
Unlikely, but maybe: Anal itching isn't usually due to an STI -- more likely a yeast infection (thrush) or just irritation. However, sometimes genital herpes can cause it. You probably wouldn't bring up STIs unless you think you are at risk, so you definitely should get it checked out professionally. Good luck! ...Read more
I think the bottom part of my anus has a cut or ripped. I can't explain it but i smell like poop and the bottom part of my anus is itchy and painful.
Large lump starting at anus and goes all the way up to the start of scrotum. No itchiness or discharge. Painful?
It is painful?: If it is painful, it is very likely to be an abscess - a collection of pus under the skin. Start with soaking and ice, but if this gets bigger, more painful, red, or starts to weep, you will need to see a physician. If this is an abscess, it will need to be opened. Also could be thrombosed hemorrhoid. That will get better with time, soaking, and ice. ...Read more
