Okay so for a while now i have had an anal skin tag which my GP advised to just ignore despite the fact its a) clearly visible from the outside and b) interferes with stools passing and wiping of course there has never been any pain but i just tolerated it.
Fast forward a couple years to now and all of a sudden my anus is very sore ranging from itching to sharp pain. I book in with the GP and he says its very red and gives me some steroid cream, which by the way hasnt done anything to reduce the discomfort. That was about 4 days ago. Today ive just had a look near a mirror and saw something else apart from the skin tag. It actually goes inside the bum hole unlike the skin tag) but visibly sticking through and looks like a lump. When i touch it its hard. There is no blood nor has there ever been any blood for matter. My gut feeling is the skin tag isnt actually the cause and its something else. Any advice?
