hi,

i have been suffering from the issue of dry skin in the right side of my anus area which is very close to the anus and causes a hell lot of irritation. I dont even remember now i am having this for how many years. for reference, what i remember is i had a dressing done for fistula right in that area when i was 13yrs old. Now i am 24. Recently i had a 4rth stage Hemorrhoid (some 2 months back) which was controlled by some drugs. My major concern now is what can i do about the irritation which is prevailing. Please help and thanks in advance

You need to be tested for this disease, the sooner the better, Chrons is number one producing rectal fistulas, if it goes untreated you may develop cancer, so go right away to see your doctor, and explain the samething you did in this forum, he may advise a colonoscopy or at least a rectoscopy, go with the mind set up because he probably wants to do a rectal exam and this is painful, he needs to check for occult blood. Godspeed...
