LINGERING ANUS DISCOMFORT AFTER FINGERING AND DETTOL
I am addressing this issue to this community as it's related specificially to the Anal region. I sincerely hope a medical expert in this area would give me some advice as this whole episode is putting me udner tremendous stress.
First, please listen to this account of how my condition developed.
On Dec 4, I had a massage and the young lady fingered me (about a minute) and then performed hand job. In that premise no sex is allowed and I did not have any sex. After that episode, my anus felt a little sore as I have never had this done before. Worried I might have caught some infection, I lost my head and applied undiluted Dettol soaked on a tissue paper deep into my anus. A terrible buring sensation followed. I have been having anus discomfort since then. It's a kind of smarting sensation and sitting for long periods can be uncomfortable.
Because it's almost two weeks now and I still having this lingering discomfortable, I am beginning to wonder what is wrong. I have been examining my anus carefully and didn't notice any swelling. I have been taking high resolution photos of my anus region. I have never done this before but I guess I really don't know what a normal one should look like. I think mine is pretty normal (from an inexperienced first-timer point of view). But I notice a small white spot on my left side of at the entry of the anus. My stools seem normal and had no blood. I do notice my stools are rather thin - a sign of some inflammation of the anal region? The discomfort is quite localised in that it's at the outside.
Has my condition improved? I am not sure but I did notice that today I can sit better than the other days. But I am not sure as from time to time, I can that 'smarting' feeling. Psychologically I am a bit traumatised and a big pimple had appeared on my face. Is this a sign of stress? I was told it was.
I am speculating that the fingering (she used an oil lotion) must have irritated my anus area, even bruised it. The application of Dettol must have aggravated the situation.
I do remember in the past, I did have bleeding at the anus ( off and on over the years) after passing motion. But I never gave much notice to it as after the bleeding stopped as the discomforts always went away. Sometimes though, in the past, I did experience a wiggling sensation which led to believe that I might have a worm infection. Of course I immediately went to take de-worming pills. Whether it was that or not, I don't know. But now, due to the aggravation, I have this similar feeling from time to time. Do this mean some sort of anal fissure? I have lots of hair around my anus region - could the hair have irritated the area? Sometime I do shave.
But this time, after what had happened - fingering and Dettol application, a lingering discomfortable that has from time to time a smarting and quick tingling sensation. If I sat for too long, it felt uncomfortable. Sometimes I have that 'pass motion' feeling. It's 14 days now and the discomfort continues.
My mind is intensely focussed on my anal area and any sensation that arise be pass motion or gas I become tense.
This is the first time in my life I was fingered. I never had any STDs and recently I was tested negative in a job application that required testing for AIDs, VDRL, Syphilis.
Could be it that I already had some kind of minor anus fissure (or some unknown problems) without realising it and that this whole episode aggravated it and brought to the fore? If so, will be heal eventually, given time?
What are the chances of contracting any form of STDs in this instance? I have been told that AIDs is not transmitted in this manner. Am I just overreacting over an aggravated anus? Should I, in fact, be consulting a doctor who specializes in anal problems?
I would be most grateful if a doctor can help wth some advice - or even comments.
Hi there i am not a doctor, to cut to the chase do to the history of issues you have, you sound to me as if you do suffer anal fissures, and also hemorroids (hemorrhoids), if you do have them, the wiggling feeling is most likely itching sensations, and the feeling of wanted to pass your bowels sound more than likely like hemrroids you are experiencing, when you girlfriend withdrew her finger may have aggravatated the anal area that might of caused your internal blood vessels, that supply blood to the anal area , so technically called your butthole is outside which it should be up inside, which can become swollen, and sometimes bleed if you are constipated is usually what causes that pain in the butt problem.Oh yes that is the worst thing you could of used is Dettol, especially if you had a small tear fissue that is like putting salt on an open wound och!!!
Here is a couple of things you can do, go to the drug store and buy some Anusol Plus, read the instruction, there is an applicator in the box to help apply the cream up into the inside of your anal area, make sure the tip is well applicated and very gently apply the cream up into your anal area, before you do this a nice warm bath helps soothe first , than follow the instruction on the Anusol Plus instrucions.
As far as I know you cannot contract any type of sexually transmitted disease, by way of using ones finger, but hands should be washed , even better a latex gloves that is as long as you know you are not allergic to latex, and if you decide to engaged in this activity again, ky jelly is preferable as a safe lubricate, oh yes resisting meaning trying to tighten your anal area can be uncomfortable, as you need to be really relaxed and does not need (a finger)to go that far into the anal area, the idea of this activiity is that it is supposely be quite stimulated for a mam to have his prostrate gland stimulated, from inside the anal area, which can be a pleasant experience if you know what to do.In the meantime I would not recommend it until your issures of tears or hemorroids (hemorrhoids) are quite healed properly.
Not sure what the white spot might be, if you tend to shave this area it could be an ingrown hair, or a boil perhaps, usually either woud be like have a pimple with pus in it, which is you sterlize a needle , wash your anal area gently and your hands and ever so gently pierce the the white area and check to see if you release any pus perhaps from it, that would be also a be an aggrevation to deal with, if that is what appears you have make sure you keep all well cleaned afterwards.All and all to me you just tend to suffer hemorroids (hemorrhoids), and when they are swollen yes your stool can be thin, as for a anal doctor, a normal family doctor can fix you up also, if you tend to have this contious problem you really need to be eating a proper diet and liquids to keep your stool soft so you do not iriitate your poor butt as I said on occasion can be caused by contipation.
So anyone want to add to this, or feel my opinion, on this issue is way off the mark ? Bottom line is if calmlake if you are really worried go see your family doctor and get checked out...
thank didees4, you were very kind to help. i have been to three specialists since then. the anoscopy showed nothing significant except for a small pile inside which the doctor were very normal and not serious. in layman terms, it is the thickening of lining at the lower rectum area due to years of pressure being exerted as a consequence of hard stool, thus narrowing the rectum width leading to it rubbing against each other frequently giving a 'pass motion' feeling.
the last specialist who was credited with 30 yrs experience with piles and all sorts of anus problems, said that a simple operation can correct that. it involves some kind of newly invented drill-ilke instrument which grinds away all that thickened tissues in the lower rectum area. when i saw a video she presented i nearly fainted ... but she assured me that there is little or no pain and patients can walk home after a few hours and have normal stools ... my heart is in shock after watching that video footage. gosh! has anyone got through that operation, PLEASE SHARE!!!!
Ouch! Well, patients undergoing that procedure must be well numbed.
I am a 2 yr survivor of anal cancer, so am familiar with a few colorectal concerns ..but am a patient, not a specialist.
Unfortunately, I share your problem ..but for a different reason. Radiation scarring.
Saw my oncologist, who is a surgeon, last week, and when I mentioned a new concern...serious constipation no matter how I many fibrous foods and stool softeners, fiber tabs I ingest...was not given any information on the procedure you describe.
I have similar issues ....just different cause. Maybe the reason my doc has not mentioned procedure is that I might not live to make it cost effective. Actually, tho' a scary video was last thing you needed....it is good to know options.
Have you had a colonoscopy? In my case, doctor insisted on one 6 months ago.
Then discovered he couldn't do a complete exam as radiation caused what he calls "brittle colon".
I only mention a colonoscopy (which I'm so over in terms of it being a poor tool to find anal cancer), because origin of problems may be found further up in colon.
You definitely need to hear more about procedure...not sure anyone here would be able to help....but could you get another opinion from another doc? Or look name of procedure up on wiki? The second suggestion probably is not a good idea. Overload.
hi there airannie!
i just read your comment and you said you are an anal cancer survivor for two years now. if you dont mind can you share me your story on the signs and symtoms (symptoms) you have had before you got to know its anal cancer???... coz this things bothers me a little.
thank you and i will pray for you.
I am happy to share my story. Will give you the chronology. If you need more details feel free to contact.
For several years I had what doctor said was irritable bowel syndrome. I would have bouts of diarrhea, which were finally controlled with Lomotil before social occasions.
Daily ...I experienced gas which was either actual feces or mucus. Had to wear pads and keep a change of pants in desk drawer @ work.
2006, a year after I retired had colonoscopy. Doc said I was fine.; suffering from week anal muscle due to difficult birth. I was so depressed because I still had the symptoms which gradually included significant blood.
Summer 2007: saw personal physicial, who referred me to oncology surgeon. He diagnosed me with anal cancer in the office, and within 2 weeks I was @ MDAnderson. Told I was stage IIIb...60% chance of survival. Cause: HPV.
The next six weeks consisted of 5 days of radiation to pelvis, and 2 types of chemo delivered @ home. Constant diarrhea thru' this time. Meds controlled pain and nausea.
September 2007: On routine follow up, radiation specialist put me in hospital as I was suffering both difficulty urinating and diarrhea, and was fatigued.
During that week, it was clear that I had Kidney failure and C dif. Isolated, and treated for both.
From Sept. 2007 - 2009, I have gone thru the challenge of recovering from damage of radiation, and chemo. Diarrhea was still concern: pain and irritation to pelvis area.
Just dealt with all this ...becoming a hermit in process.
Mid 2009, I had 3 CTscans: chest stomach and pelvis. No cancer. Colonoscopy 6 months ago was incomplete as I now have a brittle colon. Last exam..looked good, but am warned that lymph glands might be next???!
The outcome: I'm alive with a seriously damaged pelvis....radiation scarring narrowed anal, vaginal, and urethea canals. Difficulty in all three area: Incontinence. Constipation. Vagina so narrow, can never have sex again.
Hope kidneys aren't damaged. I will see urologist this week.
Prayers are most welcome. I could never have gotten thru this ordeal without the support of my sister and her husband and the collective prayers of three churches in Orlando!!!

You need to go to the doctor it could be alot of things. We cant ***** you! Tell your doctor everything he doesnt care he sees stuff like that all the time. You need to have it looked at. Ask for an anal pap smear. He may have to send you to a colon/rectal doctor.
