 ooooooooo yeah not sure how to put this so I will just come out with it.
I have this little spot, like a skin tag or pimple that keeps coming back.....    Okay I have two...  One on my butt and the other on my who-who...........     They bleed a lot....    When I wipe sometimes the skin peels off and it really bleeds bad....
Could this be Chrons related?   I HOPE it is not an STD, nono I am just not sure what to think.  
I googled fistulas online....    I guess it sorta looks like that.     
What does a fistual look like exactly...   Can anybody out there give me a description of what the start of  one might look like????

A fistula looks like a hole and usually will have pus coming out of it. I was able to keep mine clean so most of the time it was literally just a black hole about .. as big as those two periods. No blood by the way. I don't know if they look different otherwise though. I don't really have much experience besides that one.

Curly--yes, this could be from fitula, peri anal or perivaginal activity. Good idea to have doc take a look to make sure not STD but most likely crohns. I have a lot of what you describe. They come and go.

They could be little abcesses, I'd be getting those checked out right away though.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
