I have a purple blue bump outside the butt that itches and burns

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

It just started. It hurts more when I use the bathroom

Ok

Could you please post a photo of that for me on this page?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I really can’t because of the location and it actually is painful if I spread buttocks apart

No problem

Is this just outside your rectum?

outside
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Right by opening

You've got an external hemorrhoid there

Nothing too serious and for now you can use over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream applied twice a day

You also should use a stool softener like Colace and drink plenty of fluids

This should go away in about a week's time with that

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
