How long will anal skin injury take to heal?

Dear whoever it may concern, My boyfriend is wanting to do anal with me and to prepare I decided to... Practice. I couldn t find my dildo, so while I was in the shower I used a 6 or 7 inch long shampoo bottle and whenever I went down the lid of the bottle scratched the skin between my buttcheeks. Will this ever heal? If so, how long will it take? Many thanks, Concerned wife

Thanks for writing to us.
It amazes me to what extent a person can go to please his partner. Sometimes one should exercise one's right of saying no to unnatural acts. At the same time should I chide you for harming yourself voluntarily? Insertion of such bottles or any other product in body cavities can not only damage the mucosa but cause severe infection.
Right now i would just advise you to apply an antibiotic cream like mupirocin twice in a day over affected area. If the lesions do not heal in four or five days please meet a doctor nearby to get the area examined as oral drugs might be required.
Take care.

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to Healthcare Magic.
As per your query you injured your anal skin. You have not mentioned the exact time period since the injury is present. Even then generally healing of skin generally takes 7-14 days. Anal skin being prone to infection may take bit longer also. But the exact situation can be told according to level of injury. If it is deep enough then it may take bit longer also. If there is any pus discharge or related thing then you need to meet a surgeon. If there is not then no need to worry you can do "Sitz bath" in which you take warm water in a tub half filled with water. Sit in it for 5 minutes for 3-4 times a day. It will help in healing faster.
Hope these information will help.
"With good health wishes"
