External Hem?? Hurting getting bigger...

Postby Rachael 1984 » 19 Mar 2013, 08:09

Please what else can happen to me? I have discovered a purple lump on the outside of my Anus, today it is painful and getting biggger!
Is this an external hem? Will go to doc tomorrow.. Freaked out now and more pain.... What do they normally do with the external ones?! Had banding on an internal, never external.
Not sure if the blood flow increase from creme is making it swell more?!

Hi Rachael
Sounds like a thrombosed hem. If so, cutting the cloth out seems to be common practise.
- Fissure developed in Jan '13
- Started rectogesic in Feb '13 and diltiazem Apr '13.
- Got botox Jun '13
- Healed by Okt '13, although I still had some irritation for about a year.
- Now Feb '16, all is good. Still take magnesia, and squat precautionary.

Is it dark purple? If so the it is probably thrombosed. I got one from my botox shot (uncommon I think). I had it lanced and it helped but also hurt for a while too. You can just leave them too and they will dissolve in time depending on the size. If it is not dark it should go away in time. Try taking some rutin herb. It's great for hems. Good luck Rachel. I know it seems never ending doesn't it?

Thanks, it is purple, seems small then gets bigger. Should I get doc to look, or wait until I see CRS for Botox? Is it a risk to get them after the Botox? Seen as I already have one that can't be good!
Where do I get the herb from?! Xx

My skin tag looks a bit like an external hem, but it's not dark purple. It is slightly darker form the skin it pops out of, I think. It also varies in size.
The issues I've had this week may have been related to it because today it was smaller and I've had a better day. I'm only guessing though as I have no clue what's going on down there anymore. I now have pain right after BM, like an aching / throbbing pain.

I think it is hem, not sure about skin tag?! It looks like a bubble, small then big. Put ice on it and it seemed to go down.
Had a total breakdown today. Not sure what the hell is going on! I just want a normal butt. Rang Docs and they wouldn't fit me in today. Will go tomorrow, not that they will do jack s***

Rachel hang in there! I had my hem excised about 3 weeks ago. Honestly I wish I had just left alone to shrink on. It's own. If it is really painful though they can excise it for you. I hope you get some answers tomorrow.

I have to see her tomorrow at 11. Couldn't get her until then. It has gone down a little since having 3 sitz baths yesterday and 2 today. Will keep you posted. Hope she doesn't cut it, I would rather the CRS deal with it.
