How to check for perianal sepsis ?

I wonder how I would know if I have perianal sepsis? I just underwent stapled prolapsectomy. Have a big ulcer in the mouth that just would not go away even after 15 day. It is easier to see in the mouth, but with painkillers , how would I be able to see it as it is inside the anal canal?
