I am concerned about a pimple or something that sometimes makes it's appearance between my anus and vegiwhen I have had a runny tummy. I am pregnant and I had a runny tummy a few weeks ago, but it has stopped since, but the pimple? appeared again. It is very painful at the moment. I also sometimes experience a tear from wiping to much or too hard. Is this somehing to be concerned about and what can I use?

It could be a wart or piles. Why don't you mention it to your doctor at your next visit.

Hi there. It seems that you have piles (hemmorhoids). They are like vericose veins in the anus. It gets very uncomfortable and painful. I have them and they seem to be chronic in my case so no matter what I use they constantly re-appear.

It helps to use double ply, wet wipes or baby wipes instead of toilet paper. There's a number of creams and suppositories available at the chemist. And don't be fooled by the expensive stuff, the cheapies do a great job. And try not to scratch when it itches.
