Hi all ive been suffering from IBS since i was alittle kid. mainly alternating between constipation and diarrhea. about three months ago i started have this massive rash perianally. it looked alot like hemorrhoids, but it would go away after two weeks or so. it is hard to sit for an extended period of time, feels like im sitting on a knife! my anus is puffy and blue for a week, its painful to have a bowel movement and burns on exit! sometimes ill have diarrhea with burning, but mainly now i have constipation with the inflammation. the swelling subsides but the anus is still inflamed and red for weeks. it just wont go away now, there is no more resolution just constant burning and soreness. im having classical tenesmus and a sensation as though my anus is pulsating outwards.
my gi claims its nothing(bs), gave me some hydrocortisone. then i went to a derm because the skin within my anal cleft(butt crack is inflamed as well), said same thing "dermatitis". at this point im at wits end, why wont it go away as a last resort im cutting out caffeine today. i have a hemorrhoid pillow which helps alot, but this sucks so much. if anyone has any experience or helpwith this i would appreciate it so much. i just hope its not UC, or chrons or herpes just dont know what else it could be. i tested negative for herpes but what else could it be, dont think its bacterial or fungal?
