Okay guys, I got one. I've had it for more than a month, I'd say.
I read a bunch of things online that said they usually heal up on their own if you soften your stools and be careful (which I have done), but it still hasn't gotten away.
I am putting off going to the doctor for obvious reasons. Just so embarassing. Plus I don't really want somebody to stick their finger in my butt. Yes I am a wuss.
It isn't bleeding anymore, but it still HURTS so bad. Right now I'm squirming...and my last BM was over 2 hours ago.
When is it time to see a doctor? Or is there anything else I can do for relief?
