Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 32 years old and weigh about 65 kg with a height of 5.5 feet. I have a problem in my anus, Actually, I had anal fissure before and when it is gone there is a skin tag and warts develop. But the crucial thing is an unexplained thing that looks like a wound near in my anus. I hope someone could tell me and answer my problem.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I will definitely help you with your query. Skin tags are formed in long-standing anal fissure. These are nothing but accumulated skin due to fissure usually nothing to do for that but if you have any problem because of it like pain, bleeding, or pus discharge, you can opt for surgery.

It is a very minor surgery. No side effects or any problem after removing them by an experienced surgeon. A raw area will form that will heal on its own. It can reappear if you have another formation of anal fissure. So avoid the conditions that will cause it again like spicy food and constipation.

I will advise you to start a sitz bath in which you have to sit in lukewarm water for 15 minutes twice a day, 10 ml Betadine can be added to it. You will get a better result in some time.

I hope this helps.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
