hi there i have the little black thing on my bum hole abot the size of a pea what is it? and should i get it checked out

RickMD :

I am online and happy to help you with your question today.

RickMD :

the most likely cause of what you are seeing is a small hemorrhoid or, at your age, a infected hair follicule.

RickMD :

This is most likely nothing to worry about. If you have a pain or discomfort, or are more concerned, it wouldn't hurt to have a doctor take a look at it.

RickMD :

Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?

it get a little bit sore after wiping

it gets a bit sore when i wipe my bum that's how it noticed it was there

Since it is a bit painful, I would talk to your doctor about it on Monday.

Until then I would sit in a shallow warm bathtub to sooth it and use baby wipes to clean yourself after a BM instead of toilet paper.

Does this make sense to you?
