I have had this reoccuring rash/sore over the past 6-8 months.

It happens right around my anus.

Its a large circle that is a reddish color and lighter in the middle. Almost looks like giant limes disease.

The last time it had some bumps on the outeredges.

I do not have any discharge, it doesn't itch, it just gets somewhat painful after it rubs pack and forth.

After a few days it goes away.

Any ideas? Is it a yeast infection, herpes...hiv, parasite (travelled to the tropical rainforest last year).

  • it could be nothing serious, but if you've been getting it for 6 months you should really go see a doctor and get it checked out.
