Got a sore anus on one side of hole only once in a while.

Customer Question
Got a sore anus...

Got a sore anus on one side of hole only once in a while. Feels like a big zit but no pussing no disscharge. No head on it. Only half or quarter way around. Feels like a sore muscle. Havent had sex in 3 months.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

My head does not hurt at all just a muscle around my butt hole. 3 weeks its been there and it stings sometimes

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

No. Im 56 and have not had a colonascooy yet.

Ya it feels sore when i push on it
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

OK

You either have a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure problem here

For now you can try over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream around the area along with a stool softener and some oral ibuprofen for the pain.

But if it doesn't get better in a couple of days you need to have your doctor check it out

Please let me know if you need any more information

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
