So I think I have skin tags, but none of my doctors want to look! They are all waiting for me to see a gynecologist because I have uterine polyps and abnormal bleeding, and I will get lots of attention down there during my first appointment. In the meantime I am sore due to some psoriasis around my anus, and feel frustrated because I am having to use 5-ASA suppositories daily to stop rectal bleeding (or at least most of it). I may have narrowing of my urethra too, because they have ruled out a UTI but it is a little painful to pee. All in all my rear end etc. is giving me grief!
I also have had a low grade fever for a while and my iron stores are low. I have to get them up because my GI is concerned that if I have surgery for the polyps I will have problems because of the low iron. I am about
to start pregnancy vitamins, and considering putting them on the counter with no comment to scare my husband!!
Anyway, I think things are as they should be, but I am tired and cranky!!

Hey U! you might be interested in debilitated's discussion thread regarding anemia and iron, scaring a spouse is a worthy sport and fair game so go for it! (keeps the mind agile and the spouse humble . . . )
i wonder if you have skin irritation due to medication administration? Try some A&D ointment or other barrier cream and see if that helps. yeast is an opportunistic fungus that likes dark, moist corners and a round of Nystatin or other antifungal substance might help. You can always try over the counter anitfungal stuff before paying for another office visit. In babies, antifungal cream is applied 4 times a day and a barrier cream for the rest of the time and takes a good 7 days of therapy if in fact that is what you have. If yeast is on the outside, it is more often than not on the inside growing just as fast. Probiotics, oral antifungals seeking medical attention are all things to think about
