Feeling pressure in the anus. Anal papillae diagnosed. Hydrocortisone suppositories prescribed. Proper treatment?

Hi, I have been having extreme pressure on my anus for about 2 months. My doctor diagnosed me with an anal papillae at first and gave me hydrocortisone suppositories. It went away for 3 weeks and then it came back and has been back ever since. I went to a general surgeon and he did an exam and didn't see anything on the outside of my anus or didn't feel anything on the inside. I got back tomorrow for another evaulation but im noticiing the pain is at the top of my buttcrack. it makes my buttcheeks hurt and pressure on my anus. My stools are regular, no blood, no abdominal pain. Please help!

Hi and thanks for the query,

If you feel no pain again as before, and if the pain actually decreased with the use of the steroid (hydrocortisone), I think the diagnosis was appropriate and the treatment certainly effective. normality of other stool parameters, at least physically is encouraging.

However, a clinical review by your physician still has its place. Recurrence in this condition can occur and continues follow up, at least getting examined once every six months by your physician is m,y suggestion. For now, not much to worry about. thanks and kind regards,

Bain LE, MD.
