Can you upload a photo(s) of Chico's anus to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ I need to see if you're seeing simple infection or, instead, that pimple represents a tumor - a perianal adenoma or adenosarcoma.
