You can't go through life wondering and believe me doctors don't have a problem dealing with this stuff. Find a tough guy general surgeon in your area, maybe with a military background, and man up and see him.
Afterwards you may just become a perfect a-hole. The founder of HT says humor is good, right? ...Read more

There's a small moveable mole like bump on my vagina at the opening near the anal area its painless and it doesn't itch. What can it be?
Needs to be seen!: It is not so uncommon for a general ob/gyn to find moles or areas of skin pigmentation in the vaginal area on routine exams. While in most cases it is probably a benign finding, they might represent areas of 'dysplasia' or precancerous changes caused by hpv virus. The area should be examined and biopsied by an ob/gyn. I hope that this helps. ...Read more

What could be causes of itching anus, dizziness and head pressure? All three presented at the same time.
Many things: Itching anus is most commonly due to irritation of the tissue in that area (hemorrhoids, tear (rough wiping), infection, dryness, rash) and may be visible with a mirror. It may be unrelated to other symptoms, but people facing crises can have all three complaints if rectal tension develops or they have to sit too much. Headache and dizziness can result from many things. If not better, see MD ...Read more
I think I have a anal fissure but when I went to a regular doctor, he looked at my anus and told me he didn't see anything wrong. Its not in my head?
Possibilities...: Not all anal fissures are readily apparent on external exam, nor are internal hemorrhoid (s), proctitis (inflamed rectum), anal abscess or fistula, trauma to the anal canal, subtle skin changes around the anus (benign or malignant). Also, proctalgia (of any cause) can promote distress without inflammation.The only way to find out, and to start appropriate treatment, is to get a thorough exam. ...Read more

I have back head pressure, constant dull nausea, and my anus is alway itchy? Sometimes there is blood from wiping constantly. Please help.
Will try: The two most common causes of anal itching are excessive caffeine and excessive moisture on the bottom. Cut out all caffeine, use plain cooking corn starch on bottom, do not rub the area, increase your fluids to 80-100 ounces per day and use a moist wipe to clean such as kleenex cottonelle. Do not use soap directlyon bottom, just plain warm water and keep the area dry with the cornstarch powder. ...Read more
I have a fecal odor coming from my anus, it feels loose and oily. Doctors say its in my head, help please. I'm on the verge of self harm.

Some people do develop thoughts that they have various body odors that others around them do not smell. An excellent review is at http://www. Medpagetoday. Com/meetingcoverage/apa/20298?

Folliculitis: It's not called pimple (which is acne in layman's terms). There are 3 possibilities: folliculitis, an infection of hair follicles (open up the “whitehead”, apply polysporin/neosporin on top and cover it up with band-aid), infected cyst, or abscess. For the latter 2, you need doctor’s visit, or you try the regimen for folliculitis, then see your doctor, if not working. ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst?: An STD is a very unlikely cause of this sort of problem. More likely an inflamed (infected?) sebaceous cyst or something similar. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up in another week or so. Or sooner if it continues to enlarge, becomes sore, and ASAP if fever or spreading redness. (Your concern about STD suggests you may be at risk, so get tested to be safe. But not the cause of this problem.) ...Read more
Blue nevus: A blue nevis is a very dark mole. This can not be determined just by appearance. Since moles can be abnormal a very dark mole should be evaluated and possibly biopsied by a dermatologist.
