I have stinging pain in my anus It feels like


Q: I have stinging pain in my anus. It feels like something is swollen. It stings when i go. When i put a cold wet wash rag on it the pain goes away and it feels like the swelling goes down but it only last for a short time. Been happening for the last two days.


A:   Hi.
Thanks for your elucidate history.

The stinging pain at passing motion and feeling of swelling indicates that most probably you are suffering from fissure in anus.
I would advise you the following
Sitz bath
Laxative at bedtime.
Anti -inflammatory like ibuprofen
Antibiotics and metronidazole if required.
Get actually examined by a general surgeon for further care
You will be fine.

Hope this helps you
