Hi there,

I have dark spots around my anus. They are not itchy and they do not hurt. I waxed about 6 months ago and after cleaning, I bent over to check if I got all the hair and thats when I first discovered the spots. Not sure if it is sexual health related or from the waxing. Please help ;-(


Sorry for the sufferings.

I need to know some points regarding your query so that I can answer better.

How large are the spots?

Is it raised above the surface?

How far from anal margin?

How many are there?

How do they look like?

Thank you.

Hi Doctor,

The largest one is about the size of a thumb nail, and they feel like they are about the surface because when I feel them, they are a little bumpy. They are all pretty much around the anal margin. They are about 5 spots again the largest one is about a thumbnail size and the smallest is about the size of a pea.

Am I able to send you a photo via website? I have taken a shot of it from my phone.
You can send it by clicking the tree icon in tool bar.

Tool bar is in the upper part of the reply box.

Sorry Doc, im still not having luck. Directly about the reply box just says "check Spelling". There are no icons there.

At the Top of the page there is an icon that says "SHARE" when you click on it a whole lot of icons appear but I cant see a tree icon or Youtube ;-(
I am having in my window near emotion, insert link and you tube icons, the tree icon is.

The spell check icon is away from them.

Hi Doc,

Finaly sorted out what was happening, I am now using Firefox. Attached are photos. Many thanks.graphicgraphic

Thank you for the information,

Though there is some haziness still the pigmented spots can be due to moles.

Moles can appear around anus.

Other possibilities are scar with hypertrophied keloid like formation as there appears to have some elevated areas.

These does not appear to be related to STDs.

I feel you should get it checked by your doctor.

I hope this information helps.

Happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
