Discussions that mention botox

Burns & Injuries board

Two things come to my mind as a possibility, one Audrey mentioned - Herpes. Herpes can present like a paper cut type ulcer. The other thing at comes to mind is an anal fissure. An anal fissure is a small tear or cut in the skin lining the anus which can cause pain and/or bleeding.

Fissures can be difficult to heal as each time the person has a bowel movement, the sphincter gets stretched and tears it open again. I would see albout having your doctor check to see what the problem is. In the meantime, you might try increasing the fiber and water in your diet and using a stool softener to make for easier BM's. Stool softeners can be purchased over the counter at any drug or superstore. (Look near the laxative section.) The other thing you might try is a sitz bath a couple times a day. (These are basins you fill with warm water then place over the commode... then sit in to soak your bottom. A shallow bath is just as good.

A friend of mine said her husband had an anal fissure that just would not heal. She said they finally injected botox :eek: near that part of his sphincter and it finally healed.

Hope you feel better soon.
