Ring around the winker?

OK - not to be gross here, but last night I was in bed with my little hand mirror checking out all the changes going on down under (actually, I had just gotten a bikini wax and was attempting to tweeze a few stragglers, but then I figured I may as well inspect the whole enchilada...err, taco). I noticed that there was about a 1 inch red ring around my anus. At first I kinda freaked - like, what the hell is that? - but then I thought maybe it was because of all the pressure, you know, things kinda getting pushed inside out...there weren't any hemmorhoids or anything - my butt still looked like my butt - but the red ring was there and the area was kind of tender, so maybe it was my butt stretched out a bit? I'd noticed when wiping after a BM the past few days that it had felt a bit sore, but I'd chalked that up to all the grunting and pushing that was sometimes needed to get things going. So now I guess it's because the skin that's usually on the inside is now on the outside. Doesn't burn or anything, and mostly looks nastier than it feels, but I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this? I know (I hope) I'm not the only one who's taken a good look down there!

From the lack of response, obviously there are not many ladies who have ventured down below with a hand mirror...OR, maybe you just don't want to write about it...but come one, anyone? I can't be the only one with a chapped butt...

Re: Ring around the winker?

sounds like hemorroid indeed. They don't always hurt that bad, cept the ones I have right now grrrrrrr. That is another post though lol. I have the same thing as you and was at the docs today for it and they told me it was a internal wanting to come out so to speak. It is normal and you can get a cream OTC and it can help the soreness and it can help shrink it back. Believe me you are not the only one to look down there lol. good luck

Re: Ring around the winker?

if you got a brazilian bikini wax the red ring is probably from that.
