Patient :I wanted to see if I could get some info. I have a cut/wound above my rectum/butthole. It happened when I was having sexual intercourse. My partner may have if your "spread my buttcheeks" to far I assume. There was a decent amount of blood. We stop having sex and I clean my butt and the wound/cut. And I used rubbing alcohol and petroleum jelly and used a bandage to cover it so it will not get infected. I was thinking of getting steri - strip to close the wound. Should I do that? My rectum is not itching but kinda looks swilling but that might be just puss according to my research on internet. Do I need to go to a doctor?
