Posted on Tue, 12 Feb 2019
Question: Hi, my girlfriend has noticed this spot/blister/lump at the top of her bum crack. She says it's painful, it feels as though it's filled with liquid and that she's had it before. it's also gotten a little bigger over the past couple of days. I was wondering if you could give me any insight on what it is and how to treat it. Thank you :)

Brief Answer:

Follow up.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

* If allergic, should not take Ibuprofen; instead of plain paracetamol (as Tylenol) 3 times a day would also give better pain relief, if not allergic to that also.

* Turmeric paste application 2 times a day will heal it faster with its antimicrobial action over the inflamed area.

* Additionally, if not unbearable pain, sitz bath will give also best soothing action, so can wait for further 48 hours before giving any analgesic tablets.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
