white bumps around anus
I found little white pimple sized bumps outside of my anus on both walls.  Four to five on each side.  I've never had any kind of anal sex.  Could you tell me what this might be?

Not enough information.  Are they painful?  Any open sores as well?  Are they changing or staying more or less the same since you discovered them?

Assuming they are firm, painless bumps (if they are painful you probably would have said so), anal warts sounds like a good bet.  You don't say whether you are a man or a women, but anal warts are pretty common in both women and in straight men.  It doesn't take anal sex per se.  In women, the anus is close enough to the vagina for local inoculation.  In hetersexual men (or in gay men who have not had anal sex), anal HPV may be acquired by scratching the genital area then the anal area; or perhaps by scratching after manual contact with a partner's genital HPV infection.

But all this is speculation until you see a health care provider and get a diagnosis.  I don't know what you've got--can only guess.

Good luck--  HHH, MD

I have been treated for a yeast infection for the past 6 days and only got these bumps 3 days into teartment. Can you help tell me what may have. I am 12 weeks along right now and haven't had anal sex since finding out. I am unuse if this is something to worry about or if it will go away by it's self.
