Ever have skin peel on the bottom of your feet? You know how it looks sorta like a "bubble" when that top layer of skin separates from your foot without actually tearing?

Well I have something like that, except it's on my anus. It's just one little soft white round spot where the skin has separated. I've had it for about a year now, and it's actually peeled a couple of times, and bled a little. But the bubble of skin always comes back, it doesn't go away. It itches a bit, and stings when it peels. Does anyone know what this is?? Should I be worried???

I'm a 24 year old female in otherwise good health..

  • Thanks, I had a feeling thats what it was, but I wasn't sure... I think it's a minor one... anyone have any tips about how to cure it myself? I don't have insurance, so I can't afford to go to a doctor right now...
