Sorry for the graphic title but i have one hell of a sore bum.
I have what i think is a cold sore on the side of my anus and its bloody killing me.
I suffer from cold sores on a regular basis and get them everywhere being lips, eyes, nose etc but never down there.
This was my first diagnosis but then i'm thinking it maybe piles but i've not been straining big time plus they ain't popping through the exit if you get me.
Has anyone else had to suffer this?

Hi..a cold sore would be genital herpes...highly communicable/contagious.
There are meds to help, but you must get checked out be a doc (swab).

I'm wondering if you might have a fistula? or possibly an infected fissure?

The fact that you're getting many herpes outbreaks on your face, please check out L-Lysine. I use it on my cat (upper respiratory virus which is herpes contracted from the humane society) for the past 6 months...OMG, what a change. Please consider it.

Let us know the outcome...I feel for you because ANYTHING around the anus that's inflamed is pure agony.

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 3rd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
