Alright everyone, I know others have mentioned having a crack in their butt crack. I have seen the regular dr, the GI, and a colon/rectal surgeon. None of which have taken the crack in my crack seriously they say put some cream or lotion on it . I have had this issue for over a year, and It seems to heal a little after my Remicade, but about week 4 or 5 it is back to raw and bleeding. It becomes very painful, the butt surgeon did a MRI to but only found inflamation. I am now also getting scar tissue there, and recently have started tearing between the rectum and vagina. Anyone have this type of problem and have had it healed to where it does not return on a regular basis? Any adivce is appreciated.
My routine for helping the pain is to soak in epsom salt as it relieves the pain especially if bowel nears the tear. I have also tried Destin, Boreduex Butt Paste, and various over the counter creams.
Hi I didn't read the rest of the posts but I would state my life on it its a fissure that is what it sounds like but is there any drainage from this tear like stool I know u said there was blood it could also be a fistula hiding behind it but than again the surgen would have noticed that right I would go to the ER cause your not getting any help with the problem from anyone else c what they say best of luck to ya keep us posted?Jenn
