PID's pimples
Feb 17, 2009

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Sounds like a good physical examination is in order, maybe even a biopsy. Skin lesions around the anus could be several things- most commonly true pimples or skin abscesses (sometimes Staph infections), sometimes they are warts (condyloma) or herpes, sometimes yet something else.

As you can imagine, it's hard for me to be accurate from a web-based description, but be persistent with your symptoms and your doctor. I'm confident that your situation can be improved.
