Hello,

Thanks for your query.

You sustained injury to your butt area near anus with an inch long cut exposing the fat. Since this is potentially a dirty area and being prone to infection, I will advise you to consult some surgeon to have an inspection of the wound and get it cleaned and stitched within 6 hours. This will assure the healing of the wound within a week. Any attempt to treat with home remedies may lead to infection and delay healing.

I hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Regards
Dr. Patil
