Hi--can you tell me more?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It hurts when my poo comes out as of its stretching my hole. There is a bit of blood as it splits my skin. But this comes and goes
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
How long has this been going on Mark and do you have any small lumps down there?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes some small lumps that hang out if you like... This has been going on for 5 years
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
And just to check--you haven't had a doctor evaluate this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No I haven't
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Definitely sounds like piles Mark. For now you can try Preparation H or a cortisone cream and a stool softener but if these continue to be a problem a doctor can band them--put a sort of rubber band around the base--to get rid of them permanently
