Pain due to an irritated perineum, lump in the anus. Any advice?

Hi I have had an irritated perineum (scared several years ago through a tear). It was very sore initially then for several years was ok. I have had on-going problems with pain in the area (now the skin is thinner as I am now 46, I find I am having problems. I have constant pain in the area, and have a small flesh coloured lump near the anus . I have been to many specialists - (skin, collorectal and gynacologeca) all to no avail - tried everything to no avail - can you offer any help. thanks I don t have any a credit card which may pose a problem?

From history it seems that due to age there might be having some estrogen hormone depletion giving rise to thinning on perineum area giving rise to irritation.
You may try estrogen cream like Novelon over the local part after consulting GYnaec.
Having lump in anal region might be Fistula in ano.
Consult surgeon and get examined.
Avoid constipation.
Ok and take care.
