Decolonize: You are probably a nasal staphylococcus aureus carrier as are 25-30% of people. Any tiny break in the skin can allow an infection to develop. Get a prescription for bactroban (mupericin) ointment to use twice a day into your nares for 7 to 10 days from your doctor. ...Read more

Shape of stool: By itself is not indication of anything serious. But a simple rectal examination would reveal any abnormalities that might be causing it. Go and see a doctor to make sure that you don't have anything close to the anal opening or any occult blood in the stool. ...Read more

Blood in stool: Blood in the stool is never normal. But it sounds like there is a fissure (ie, cut) on your anus. Fissures are often from mechanical irritation (ie, wiping). Also, hard feces in constipation often is attributed to fissures. But in your case, if your stool is dark red, it may indicate blood that is coming somewhere within the intestine itself - in which case, i recommend getting it checked out. ...Read more

Lumps: Lumps on old scars are unusual but new scars can be lumpy due to keloid formation which is an abnormal thickening of scar tissue that some people tend to produce. Multiple lumps apart from scar tissue are often lipomas which are benign fatty tissue deposits. Your physician can evaluate and advise you. ...Read more
