I have an itchy vagina and anus. Raw red skin around anus and red raised bumps around both. Scabies?? Small tear around anus from being constipated.

I have an itchy vagina and anus. Raw red skin around anus and red raised bumps around both. Scabies?? Small tear around anus from being constipated.

Yeast infection?: The most common cause of such symptoms is candidiasis (yeast infection, thrush). If so, it seems more severe than average. Herpes might be possible if you are sexually active. Scabies rarely occurs in these locations, but might be possible if you have typical scabies elsewhere (hands, elbows, waist, etc). See a doctor or clinic ASAP for professional diagnosis and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a small pimple looking bump inside my anus, just one and its inside not on or around anus, you can't see it on the outside. What is it?

Down Periscope!!: Very interesting. I'd like to know how you discovered that little gem...Anyways, it's probably a normal structure, like a sebaceous gland. As long as it doesn't hurt or start getting bigger or irritated, there's nothing to worry about.
In case you do get worried, then you'll have to get an exam. The doctor will use a small device called an anoscope to get a good view. ...Read more

Tried getting appointment later this week but scheduled a week away, bumps around anus/butt, can I take cotton swab to save to test for herpes?

Tried getting appointment later this week but scheduled a week away, bumps around anus/butt, can I take cotton swab to save to test for herpes?

ToBeOrNotToBeFreaked: No. They need a fresh, hot juicy sample. And if you really think it's Herpes (blisters, lotsa pain, chance you got it from someone), then go to an Urgent Care where someone can decide if it's a high enough chance for you to have Herpes to start therapy. The sooner the better on that. If it's just bumps, and no blisters and isn't painful then the chances of Herpes are less, but not zero. So get it ...Read more

End minocycline 7/30- 3 days later a red pimply rash around anus. Bumps are gone using anti fungal but still really red. What can I do to get rid of it?

Zinc oxide: Wash and dry yourself thoroughly after BM. Use hairdryer if you can to get the area completely dry. Then apply zinc oxide paste and cover with a tissue. I would take some probiotics to get your intestinal flora back in balance. It is somewhat unusual to be prescribed minocycline during pregnancy. Ask your doctor if you should have any concerns. ...Read more

Ky lube anal infection? I had sex sunday & when he used KY it burned my inside & stool. Came up thursday I see bumps around anus, it hurts 2 poop now

Anal Irritation: There is something in this. It may be simply an allergic reaction to the lube of the condom. It could be that you tore a bit and the raw tissue of the anal fissure is now infected or irritated or both. Soften the stool, use wet wipes instead of paper to wipe and if it does not quickly resolve then you may need to see your physician. ...Read more

Had bump that looked like Bowenoid papulosis, brown raised. What is difference between hpv wart and BP? Was on tip of inner butt, not near anus.

Had bump that looked like Bowenoid papulosis, brown raised. What is difference between hpv wart and BP? Was on tip of inner butt, not near anus.

Probably not HPV: If you're not a medical professional, you cannot rely on self-diagnosis of Bowenoid papulosis. Plenty of other skin lesions can be brown and raised. Genital wart also seems unlikely: a) the buttock is a possible but uncommon site; b) genital warts usually are multiple, not only a single lesion; c) new HPV infection causing GWs is uncommon over age 26. See a doctor, ideally a dermatologist. ...Read more
