I accidentally cut near my anus while shaving. It’s been a week and I put neosporin on it everyday. There is slight pain when I poop at and slight blood on toilet paper. Is this just the cut not healing yet or something serious?

I accidentally cut near my anus while shaving. It’s been a week and I put neosporin on it everyday. There is slight pain when I poop at and slight blood on toilet paper. Is this just the cut not healing yet or something serious?

Exam please: This is serious enough to get checked out since it has been going on for a week. If the cut is not healing it could need to be bandaged better or could need stitches. Furthermore, it may be infected and you may therefore need antibiotic treatment. Please go to a clinic for an exam as soon as possible. ...Read more
