Thank you. What you have here is a large haemorrhoid, otherwise known as piles. What you need to do is to buy a tube of Anusol cream from any pharmacy, no prescription needed and start applying that to this area twice a day for at least a week. You should increase your fibre intake as well as make sure you're getting at least 2.5L of fluid intake per day to prevent this coming back.
