Hello there tightness and redness at the perineum plus my anus is too close to vagina and I think I have a tear at the end of it please help me?

Anatomy-irritation: Yes: there is a normal short distance between the vagina and rectum: the perineum. This delicate tissue can be irritated by multiple factors: tight (thong) undergarments, vigorous vaginal or anal sexual manipulation/intercourse, vigorous exercise (biking) aerobics etc. The best thing to do is to get checked by a gyn and abstain until healed. Infection can cause similar symptoms. ...Read more

Treatments/ creams that I can buy over the counter for small cuts on 'perineum' the skin between vagina and anus?

Consult Dr. Walgreens: Any over-the-counter antibacterial ointment or cream will do, in addition to meticulous personal hygiene and trying to avoid whatever caused those 'small cuts' in the first place. Plus a small piece of tissue to help minimize staining of underwear or clothing. If any serious swelling or pain develops get it seen by a doctor. Infections in that area can get out of hand (and out of groin). ...Read more

Swollen outer vagina at the bottom towards the anus, just started today, why could this be? I only sleep with 1 person and we always use condoms.

A few possibilities: Maybe irritation from sex. If itchy and red, perhaps yeast infection (thrush). If painful, and especially if blisters or sores, probably herpes. Many people have herpes without symptoms and can transmit to partners without knowing anything is wrong. Condoms reduce but do not eliminate herpes risk. See a doctor ASAP for easiest diagnosis and effective Rx, e.g. an NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more

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.

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
