I have an extremely sore lump next to my anus, not protruding out out it but next to. It is not discolored, it is skin pink coloured and extremely sore. It is not bleeding. It was first noticed about 6 weeks ago and slight lump when squeezed displelled slight liquid. Now it is more solid and extremely sore. i have been using antiseptic creams to no avail. I have been reading a lot on external haemarroids and i am not sure. There is discomfort in sitting and walking. I have been using a rowing machine and the gym for the last 3 months, not sure if this may be a cause but i am looking for a remedy or solution to the pain.
This sounds like an infected pimple that you're aggravating by squeezing it. Please don't squeeze it. Instead, apply bacitracin or neosporin twice a day, and let the lump slowly get reabsorbed. This may take several weeks. If it still worries you in a month, show it to a doctor.
