Anal fissures or lichen sclerosus

Posted , 4 users are following.

Sorry if there’s TTI. I noticed a few years ago i would get anal fissures on occasions after bowel movements. However, lately I’ve noticed them more frequent as well as a paper cut tear at the forchette/perineum after sex. I’ve looked in a mirror to see if I could see anything going on and noticed the anal and perineal area is white/scar coloured and has fissures. I don’t experience any itching, just slight discomfort after sex and bowel movements. I really don’t know what this could be! I keep coming across lichen sclerosis but not sure if this is what it is. I haven’t been to the doctor yet about the issue.
