How to ease pain along the inter gluteal cleft?

I have a split along the entire inter gluteal cleft which was bleeding freely until I folded a few tissues and placed the pad between the cheeks. I am on clexaine 40mg bd and trimethoprim 150 daily. How do I ease the pain. The bleeding appears to have stopped.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is most probably an anal fissure. You can apply lignocaine/nifecaine ointment which are quite effective for this condition. Do sits bath and include more finer rich foods in your diet as straining for stool worsen the condition and pain. If the pain persist, better to consult a general surgeon and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had a gluteal abscess surgery 10 months ago. But since that time , I have been experiencing smaller abscesses with pusand pain over on of my incisions frequently at a regular interval of 7 to 30 days.I contacted with the doctor who did my surgery.He has said if this contiues to happen,more surgery will be needed. Hearing that I got confused and frightened and so did my relatives. They are telling me to change the doctor.I am very worried now.What should I do now? How serious are the abscesses ? Could the infection spread to my bone ?

yesterday I had hardened skin over muscles where the backbone ends (gluteus maximus muscles I guess) in my buttocks. No pain, not really itchy. For the previous 1-2 days I ate a lot of pastries with wallnuts and sugar in it. I also have some kind of arthristis in my joints (a rheumatologist from Istanbul is trying to diagnose at the moment - she says it may be spondillitis). Back to my hardened skin, I took a claritine (10 mg) last night and it looks like it is almost totally gone. Why did that happen? It was first time in my life.
