Suggest treatment for pain in anus while moving and coughing?
User rating for this question
I have had a pain in my anus for 2 days. The pain is not present when I sit but is present when I move and when I cough. I have had no blood in my stools and no discomfort when passing although the consistency has been quite watery. I have had a look and cannot see anything and haven't had any issues before. Should I take a course of antibiotics?
