May be yeast : The only way to know what this is is to be examined by your doctor. It may be a yeast infection. If an over the counter yeast medication solves the problem then most likely that's all it was. Other possibilities include lichen sclerosis, lichen simplex chronicus, allergic reactions and psoriasis. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

Hi I got one white pimple ?? On my anus from 4 years no pain , some time itchy , sometime can see very small spot of blood on paper never got any treatment and I am overweight

Skin tag: You get pimples on areas of the body like face/shoulders,upper back. On your anal opening you could have a hair follicle inflamed, but it wouldn't last 4 yrs.This is most likely a skin tag left over from a fissure (crack) or food reaction or whatever. It is common and of little importance.If irritated you can reduce it with OTC hydrocortisone cream . ...Read more

What cream or ointment should I use on an itchy anus? My anus itches like crazy and i don't know why. I don't know weather to use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or some other treatment.

Most often: Anal itching in an adult is from either excess caffeine/beer or excess moisture or possibly yeast infection. I do not use any ointments for anal itching. Cut out the caffeine and beer and use plain cornstarch powder liberally and frequently to your bottom. If itching is waking from sleep, caffeine is the most likely culprit. Also consider pin worms but rare in adult. ...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

I have rash around my anus and its itchy im worried that it might be STI. When I scratch it becomes painful. It is so irritating.

Unlikely, but maybe: Anal itching isn't usually due to an STI -- more likely a yeast infection (thrush) or just irritation. However, sometimes genital herpes can cause it. You probably wouldn't bring up STIs unless you think you are at risk, so you definitely should get it checked out professionally. Good luck! ...Read more

Large lump starting at anus and goes all the way up to the start of scrotum. No itchiness or discharge. Painful?

Large lump starting at anus and goes all the way up to the start of scrotum. No itchiness or discharge. Painful?

It is painful?: If it is painful, it is very likely to be an abscess - a collection of pus under the skin. Start with soaking and ice, but if this gets bigger, more painful, red, or starts to weep, you will need to see a physician. If this is an abscess, it will need to be opened. Also could be thrombosed hemorrhoid. That will get better with time, soaking, and ice. ...Read more
