I have a small discolored area on my rectum, Ive had an anal

Customer Question

JA: Hi. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: I have a small discolored area on my rectum, Ive had an anal abscess and fistula surgery around 7 months ago. Not to mention some 2 or 3 small white spots on this discolored area. I'm pretty worried
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the skin issue better or worse?
Customer: No nothing, i havent really noticed it before except after my surgery when i acctually started paying attention to that area more
JA: The doctor's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.
Customer: Alright
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I occasionally have anal intercourse, not to mention I have Beta minor thalasemia

Discolored spots without itching or pain are likely due to the loss skin pigmentation. They are usually harmless.

Please attach a picture of the spots if possible for confirmation.
