Yes it is possible, the skin in that area is very delicate and can tear easily, but good news is that it usually heals well without any problems. You may use Witchhazel pads on the outside and take some tylenol for pain as needed. Please watch for signs of infection such as severe pain, fever, drainage, swelling and redness. Otherwise this should heal quickly.
