Brief Answer:
Fissures

Detailed Answer:
Hello. I just read through your question. If you are able to visualize the fissure, I recommend applying am antibiotic ointment (ie: bacitracin, neosporin, etc...) three times per day to promote healing and prevent infection.
The right sided abdominal pain may be a little more tricky. If it is accompanied by fever, or vomiting, or both. We have to think about appendicitis. If the pain has been going on for more than 2 days, then appendicitis is ruled out. If not, it is still a possibility.
One test you can do at home is to ask him to jump. If jumping worsens the right sided pain, it could be appendicitis. In this case I recommend consulting with your doctor immediately.
If the jumping doesn't worsen the pain, it is most likely a stomach virus and we have to let it run its course. In this case, hydration and time are all that is needed.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
