Multiple AFs! Diagnosis: Thin skin!? Help!!

Postby Sally_C » 22 Oct 2018, 15:09

Hi,

I recently underwent examination where 2 piles were banded and it was confirmed that I have 3 "superficial" AFs.

GTN ointment was successful in 2013 but NOTHING is working now and the CRS has confirmed today that it's nothing that I'm doing wrong: I have thin skin down there and it's not from hydrocortisone abuse.

Being referred for an anal pressure test as surprisingly, examination didn't show me to be in spasm, but I'm obvs. keen to try and heal it myself rather than wait for yet another exploration of my a**e.

I've read stories here re. oestrogen cream. Does anyone have further info. on this or any advice as to how I can "thicken" my skin down there?

I'm at my wits end and also looking after a young toddler so any advice would be very gratefully rec'd!

I'm doing the usual (stool softeners, laxatives, diet change, 2 litres water, coconut oil etc.) but really don't know what else I can do!!


:roll:

Following your story, I’d also like help with thin skin issues. Mine is so sore, I’m told fissure is healed but still hurts to have a BM so wonder if it’s just a skin problem now(?).....
