What causes lump on the anus?

Hello, the other day I felt a little pain around my anus. When I looked I saw a pinkish white hard lump the size of a pea right outside my anus. Thinking it was hemorrhoid I went and bought prep H and have been using it for about a week and nothing has changed with the lump. It doesn t hurt, doesn t itch but it s not going away. Should I go see a doctor about it? Age:29 female 5 6 135lbs

Hi,
From history it seems that there might be having some irritation and soreness giving rise some local skin infection.
Apply antibiotic cream locall.
You might require one course of antibiotic medicine if problem persisted.
Keep local hygiene clean and dry.
Ok and take care.
