Customer Question

Hello. A week ago today I woke up with pain on the skin between the vagina and my butt hole. I have not gone to the doctor yet, and I had my mother and my aunt look at it. They said that it looked like a hemorrhoid so I went out and bought Preparation H and have been using that since Friday afternoon. It definitely helped with the irritation, which mostly occurred when I would sit or lay down when my underwear would bunch up or when I would wipe after going to the bathroom. There has not been any blood. I woke up this morning and used a mirror to look at it and it looks like three tiny open sores. This is obviously very embarrassing, as this has never happened before. Is there anything that I should be concerned about? It was never white and never looked like these was puss or anything inside of it.

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

How large are the sores?

Is it on the anal margin or on the skin part?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Not even a cm wide. And what is the anal margin?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 month ago.

Anal margin is the margin of butt hole.

Is it on that margin or away from it?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I really have no idea. It is on the skin in the middle of my butt hole and vagina...
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 month ago.

Thank you for all the information,
There is likely an inflammation or infection of skin.
Hemorrhoid usually protrude through butt hole.
You can apply neosporin cream over the ulcers.
If there is no improvement, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
You can take warm sitz bath.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
