Ask Health Experts and Get Answers to Your Health Question ASAP
Hello jacustomer. I would be glad to help you today. IN order for me to get a better idea of what could be the problem, I would like more information about your overall health and any health conditions you might have? Since we are talking about your anus, do you have any problems with acne in that area or hemorrhoids? Any cuts or scratches?
I suffer from hemorrhoids and was recently using some preparation H and alternating with yeast cream because it was so itchy.
Do these small bumps appear near the hemorrhoids or are they away from them?
Have you been on antibiotics recently?
No antibiotic. I used some neosporin ointment. The bumps start on the outer anus area and spread on to the buttock on the right a small area ner the anus
Do they have any blisters or pus on them?
What did the neosporin ointment do to the bumps?
Is the skin broken on the bumps?
No pus or blisters. The ointment didn't do anything I tried it because I thought maybe the bumps came from scratching
I understand. Good thinking. Could the bumps be from the skin being irritated from the scratching? When we scratch the skin, the body releases some histamine which can cause the area to become red and swollen. How long ago did you scratch the area?
no pus or blisters I can se.Not that I can see. I am African american and my skin is dark
Have you tried putting the hemorrhoid cream on the bumps? If it is from irritation, the hemorrhoid cream would help decrease their size.
I scratched a few days off and on but I also cleaned and wiped a lot especially after using the restroom and the tissue made it worse
No I will try putting the ointment on the bumps
Most hemorrhoid creams have a decongestant ingredient that should help the bumps. If they get bigger, develop pus or blisters on them, or continue to spread, contact us or contact a doctor or nurse practitioner. Is there anything else i can do to help you this evening?
Thanks, ***** ***** try this! Again thanks for your help!!!
You could also try sitting in a warm bath. The warm water may help your hemorrhoids and the bumps.
You are most welcome. Have a good evening.
