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?
