Hello doctor,

I was suffering a lot with pain, discomfort and not concentrating on my studies, a small pimple like structure raised at my anal section. I think it is haemorrhoid. When I am making bowel movement, I was suffering a lot. Please help in solving this issue.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Based on your description, it might be haemorrhoid or perianal abscess. If it is in a lower grade, some medical therapy may be proven to ease the pain and inflammation. But a medical consultation would be neccessary to determine that condition.

Anyway, you can try a local cream containing Betamethasone and Lidocaine twice daily. A stool softener such as Lactulose would help for an easier and less painful bowel movement. Keep a watery diet with soups and high fibers foods. Have plenty of liquids. Sitz baths would help a lot. If it is an abscess, an antibiotic can be started. Continue this medication for about two weeks. If no improvement, the surgical solution must be taken into consideration. Take care and best wishes.
