I had protected sex w/ female a week ago & have started to notice a slight itchy feeling on & around anus. Also have odor from genitals. No discharge?

STD and protection: Sean, I assume that the protection was likely a condom. While condoms offer a good deal of protection from most STDs, and they certainly helped prevent pregnancy, they cannot protect you from all secretions and potential viral and bacterial contact. One week is early and typically, it may take two weeks before other symptoms are noted. I would have an evaluation particularly if contact unknown ...Read more

Gi doc thought I had an anal fissure, prescribed proctofoam hc, taking 2 months now, fishy rectal odor still here, if hemrrhoids my next move should be?

Anal fissure: Anal fissures cause pain and bleed with bowel movements. Odor and drainage, while possible, are more common with hemorrhoids. An exam under anesthesia (due to the pain issue) will be a benefit as your surgeon will be able to repair the fissure and hemorrhoids at the same time. Okay to get in for a surgery consult. Good luck. ...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.

Olfactory reference: First stop all of your over-the-counter meds. If this does not clear it up, then you may indeed have a psychiatric condition. It is not worth killing yourself over. 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? Impressionid=1274860387232&userid=212936. Please read it as I think it can be of great help to you. There is every reason to believe that this condition is treatable. If you are imminently suicidal please go to the emergency room. ...Read more
