Persistent itching in butt since pregnancy, get whitish mucus from the site post delivery. Advice?

i am a 33 year old mother of 3 and while I was pregnant with my third I noticed I started getting itchy in my butt area. I thought it might have been caused by all the weight I gained some how and it just seemed like extra sweaty but when it didnt stop after giving birth and losing a few pounds I also noticed that it was accompanied by clear or whitish mucus or puss like leakage. I googled a few things and came across Pilonidal disease that seems to fit but im not sure and I dont know whether to go to my regular dr or my gyne.

Hello,

As per my surgical experience, the issue sounds to be related to possible infection around anal region giving rise to either perianal folliculitis, boil or else with persistent discharge.

It is the diagnosis based on clinical examination, and the same can be best performed by a consultant surgeon rather than a gynecologist.

It is best recommended to consult your surgeon at earliest to avoid future possibilities of fistula or other conditions which can be detrimental.

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

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon

Hello.. I just need some advice Doctors.Just an hour ago, I took a preg test.. Since I am delayed for 2 days now and I do have a regular menstruation each month. And wolllaaa! Its positive! Until now I am still shaky. I already have 2 kids both was born last year.. Jan and Dec, and both CS delivery. The doctor who has given birth to my last child, told me that my ovaries are already thin and it almost took my life from my previous pregnancy. So now, I am so sure that I need to terminate this pregnancy, since I have my kids that I still need to look after. But living here in the Philippines, I really dont know if someone could do surgical abortion procedure. Oh dear, I am so confused what to do.. And also is it really normal that I am feeling some abdominal cramps for four days now. It is the same feeling when I have my menstruation...

me and my girlfriend have been having mostly protected sex (i say mostly protected because there have been a couple times when the penis was inserted in the vagina without a condom, but there was no ejaculation). she has usually had fairly regular periods every 5 weeks or 5 weeks and a few days. now, she is 7 weeks away from her past period and we took two pregnancy tests on two different days, the most recent one being in the morning. they were first response pregnancy tests, highly sensitive and they are supposed to be 98% accurate in the second day after the missed period.. since we took both of them a full week after her missed period, they should be very accurate. both of them came back negative. she has lost a lot of weight recently, but she says most of this is after she missed her period. now she is saying that she has a bit of a tummy which i agree to, but i don t think it should have started to show this early and she s always had a bit of a tummy? to be honest, i haven t really noticed her fluctuations in weight.. she is a very small person at around 100lbs. i was just wondering if she could be pregnant, and what we should do about it? a blood test would be very hard to do without her parents finding out, since we would need a recommandation for it and to go to a special clinic, etc. without mine or her parents knowing. they keep her on a pretty tight leash so i don t really know what we should do. any advice? (sorry for the really long post, i really appreciate you putting the time into reading all of it)

i have just been diagnosed with a pilonidal cyst which has burst. I have been on penicillin for almost a week. Although it is healing well, I am not sure how much time to take off work for it to heal properly as my job entails sitting for lengths of time and at the moment I cant do that. How long does it normally take to heal?

my son is thirteen and has been having a discharge from his left nipple which now looks bloody. He is due for surgery for a pilonidal sinus soon. Are these conditions related in any way - maybe by puberty? More importantly, does he need to see our doctore about nipple discharge. Thank you
