Brief Answer:
probable hemorrhoids

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HealthcareMagic.

In most cases, this is caused by internal hemorrhoids and less common by polyps, anal fissure or pruritus ani.

Hemorrhoids are protrusions of veins in rectal wall and there are several stages of the hemorrhodal disease and the right treatment depends on type and stage of the disease.

Initially, it can be treated with dietary changes and sitz baths. There are few procedures which can be used but surgery should be avoided unless there is no improvement on conservative measures.

In the early phase, this is initially treated with dietary changes by having a high-fibre diet with a lot of fluids and make your stool soft. Also take fruit, vegetables, avoid chocolate, refined meat, overeating, and food that causes

There are supplements such as Psyllium and Detralex which may help as well.

Also, you should use sitz baths by sitting in warm water for 20minutes daily.
Second, it can be treated with rubber ligation or sclerotization and in severe stages and this can be done in ambulatory settings. On the other hand, open the surgery is recommended only in resistant cases but for this, you should consult proctologist about these options.

Other causes include abscess, fissure, and anal polyps but for this differentiation, you should get done proctological examination including colonoscopy.

Till then, try to follow my recommendations and see if this will be helpful.

Wish you good health
Regards

Hi Dr. About 6 months ago, I noticed a white, sticky, fluffy discharge from my anus when I go to the toilet in the morning. The discharge is usually attached to my stool and the amount varies. It is not painful at all. I visited my local Health 4 Men clinic. I was treated for STI’s with an antibiotic. I was also treated for a possible anal fissure with suppositories. However, the discharge is still present in my stool. Lately, my anus is often itchy and the past week the tissue around the anus was tender and red. I treated it with an anti-fungal cream and it has now cleared up. For the past 2 weeks, I have been experiencing some slight abdominal pain (just below the left rib cage). This said, I was wondering whether I don’t perhaps have a Candida infection?
