Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Recently I observed that some small swellings which are disappearing.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Also, like 4 months ago I observed some small bumps around my anus. I was given a prescription which I applied for three days and they disappeared. After a month it comes back again. This time i used the remaining cream. It disappeared again

Hallo
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

Hi--I asked what you've tried for that so far?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I was given antifungal, anti inflammation and anti bacteria severally
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Hygienically, I'm trying
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

Thanks

That looks like an inflammatory eczema problem

You could start out by trying 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for two weeks

But if that doesn't work, or if you've used it before, you need prescription tacrolimus cream from your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information

I also went for a comprehensive medical test some months back. Nothing abnormal was detected in my samples
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

This isn't a sign of some systemic problem and it wouldn't cause any abnormalities in blood work

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
