What causes small painful bumps in rectum?
Pl post actual and clear photos
Thanks for your query about your hubby.
To recapitulate: Male/42 - was regular for bathroom but going 2-3 times for the past week - 2 small bumps inside the folds of rectum (anus) - inflamed - tried the thing you mentioned - against going to ER - you had UTI and got treated and had sex after completion of treatment -
This looks to be fissure in ano or small abscess in the area you have described.
I would advise him the following:
Send stool for tests as well as blood.
High fiber diet.
Avoid all the foods and beverages and stress-like conditions which gives constipation.
Laxative for softening the stool- never allow the dose too much to cause liquid stools.
Sitz bath- very important- just before passing a stool and after passing a stool.
Clean the area very clear of the fecal soiling that remains after cleaning; use cotton soaked in the same water to clean.
Apply liquid povidone iodine locally. Apply nothing else.
5 day course of an antibiotic on prescription of a local Doctor.
Add probiotics and multivitamins.
Avoid stress and mental tensions at any cost; this is a very important factor.
Anti-inflammatory medicine with pain killer properties like Ibuprofen should help for the discomfort.
Actual photo of the area would help me to do a on-the-spot diagnosis and please post so that I can have better idea and add on treatment/advise accordingly.
