I'm going to stay unnamed for now, as this is very embarrassing to even talk about.
I am a 56 year old normal man, married.
I have had a raw anus now for about a year. The doc has given me some Nystatin cream and told me to use this with Desitin after cleaning with Tucks. I have been doing these procedures for 3 months now with no results. I am afraid of cancer. I can feel that further up my rectum is a really sore spot. My doc just seems to think it's because I scratch too much.
This keeps we awake, and sometime burns excessively. I try to pad it dry with bathroom tissue, but the clear fluid just continues to ooze out of the raw tissue. I was thinking that I was sweating a lot that area, but I can tell that the wetness is from the fluid seeping out. Sometimes there is blood on the tissue, not always. What should I do, could this be cancer?

  • This sounds like a chronic case of hemorrhoids. Google hemorrhoids and your symptoms and see what you come up with. No need to be embarrassed. Good lord, we all have yucky stuff going on. :p Also, you might want to find a doctor who is a little more compassionate. Three months is a long time with no answers. :( Here is a snippet from a homeopathic site. Look at the symptoms. :)Sulphur is to be used in the homeopathic treatment of individuals with chronic types of hemorrhoids. Physical symptoms include the presence of severe burning, itching or stitching pain in the anal region. The anus may ooze out a lot of smelling moisture along with the blood. Recurring attacks and prolapsed situations are common. Symptoms also include the presence of a swollen and red anus due to inflammation. Physical symptoms also include the presence of frequent desires for excretion; this is ineffective even when the person strains very hard. The condition is usually accompanied by attacks of diarrhea early in the morning. The condition of the patient tends to worsen when he or she stands for long periods of time, it also worsens in the early morning after midnight, it tends to worsen at night, the condition also worsens when the person consumes beer, the presence of heat worsens the symptoms, the person hates being touched and it worsens the symptoms, women in menopause also tend to experience a worsening of the symptoms. In general, the symptoms are aggravated following the passage of stool. The presence of one or more of these symptoms requires the immediate use of Sulphur in the homeopathic treatment of individuals affected by hemorrhoids. Be well!Beth
