User :   can we wait till baby birth?
User :   without going to the doctor before, can we try any medications?
Doctor :   It would be better , if the gynecologist knew about it , if at all it is a rectal prolapse , then they would have to take extra precuations.
Doctor :   For prolapse there is no medical treatment as such except for stool softener.
User :   for wart?

User :   any ointments?
Doctor :   If at all the wart is small, the you are lucky - reatment for anal warts is a simple process as there are various, modern methods available today. An initial inspection of the skin surrounding the anus and the anal canal is done by a doctor using an Anoscope. If small warts are detected, solutions such as bichloracetic or podophyllin acid can be applied to the warts directly.
Doctor :   bichloracetic or podophyllin acid, but has to be confirmed by a gen. surgeon or proctologist first.
