I think I caused anal fissures in my anus/rectum.
So a couple months ago I was absent mindedly scratching my butthole in the shower, out of habit and also it kind of itched.
But I used my right hand without thinking, which I've been growing the nails out on to a long and pointy shape in order to play fingerstyle guitar.
As a result, I'm pretty sure I made a small scratch just inside my anus. This cause more itching and I, like an idiot, just scratched more. A vicious cycle ensued.
What started a month ago as a slight pain and trace amounts of blood when I wipe is now more substantial pain, and pretty exclusively just bright red spots of blood on the tissue paper when I wipe.
Is it an anal fissure? Any advice on treatment? Should I see my PCP?
