Hi

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

The perineal raphe is a visible line or ridge of tissue on the human body that extends from the anus through the perineum.

It is normal.

Are you having a tear or swelling or rash there?

Can you upload a pic so that i have a better idea.




Feel free to consult me directly

I was told a few months ago this was a hernia so was misdiagnosed . What causes this to happen? The pinwheel look is very scary that has happened with my skin. Is this from a hernia or is this a yeast or something else?
