Yeast?: A yeast infection is the best bet for symptoms like these. You could safely try one of the many OTC vaginal yeast treatments, anything with active ingredient ending in "azole" (clotrimazole, miconazole, etc). All are equally effective; you can choose the least expensive. Use the cream both in the vagina and on the irritated external area. If no response after a few days, see your doctor. ...Read more

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.

I have a small cut on my perineum from chaffing when riding my bike - very small like papercut, or like a split on your lip- what can I do to ease the pain (vaseline sudocrem etc)? And how long to heal?

Great blood supply: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing occurs rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Avoid further trauma to the area. Let nature take it's course. Skin cream may decrease any friction at the site. ...Read more

Tear: It is likely that intercourse has resulted in a small tear in the vaginal lips. This tear can be repaired by a doctor after numbing the area and suturing it closed. An open tear is also at risk for infection. Please cleanse the area and apply antibiotic ointment. Some patients, if the tear is very small, allow it to heal that way. You should see a doctor in person to help make that decision. ...Read more

Time to see Dr.: It is probably a common type of cyst, but it sounds like it's now become infected. Go see your gynecologist, family practice doctor, or planned parenthood-type clinic. Don't wait because once infected, they need to be treated. ...Read more

Lately I cut my perineum by sex, inside cut is white and after days there is a white head bump, so it goes away but cuting again or by itself!!

May be an infection: Small lacerations or cuts may occur after intercourse. In your case, it may have become secondarily infected, based upon how you describe it. I would clean and irrigate the area and you can even apply antibiotic ointment to the area. If it worsens or becomes red and painful then you should have your Gynecologist look at the area. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: There are several dermatological conditions that can cause this from a simple cyst to a mass which may be more serious and potentially malignant.

Sharp pain when bm and pimples around my anus. It hurts to sit and cut on perineum. What do I do?

Herpes? See doc ASAP: This combination of symptoms -- painful "pimples around my anus", "cut on perineum", and painful defecation -- make me wonder whether you have newly acquired herpes, and also whether you acquired it through anal sex. Of course not possible if not recently sexually active and exposed. In any case, get care ASAP, the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis amd most effective treatment. ...Read more

Been experiencing Constipation, noticed small bump in rectal area (maybe hemorrhoids) now perineum feels a bit hard and swollen on the rectal side?

Hard bump: There are internal and external hemorrhoids. And you have constipation which may well be a proximal cause for your hemorrhoids. So first, get over constipation by altering diet (no rice, oatmeal, barley, bananas, milk) and Miralax (polyethylene glycol). Basically a bowel prep. Hopefully the bump will largely resolve itself by then. If not your GI doc will thank u for being so considerate. ...Read more
