How is that not serious?  That sounds so uncomfortable/painful.  I’d be at the doctor fast!  I have no idea what it could be, but he needs to get it checked out.

Not to concern you… but has he been checked for herpes?

Have you tried googling it or going on webmd? You might be able to get a better idea. Or you could just call the doctor and speak to them or a nurse and get an opinion on what it could be and ask them at what point does he need to come in.

Ha I understand where you’re coming from, my Fiance hates the doctor and making a big deal out of anything but he has to realize that the longer it goes on, it could get worse. I would make him go!

My first thought is that his boxers or briefs are rubbing a hole in his “gooch” as Darling Husband calls it.  His underwear either does not fit properly (maybe he wears a large and should wear a medium), or is not designed properly (i.e. he’s wearing boxers and should wear briefs).  He also may be having a skin allergy to the type of material.  Perhaps he’s wearing polyester, have him wear cotton.  If he’s wearing cotton, try switching to a poly-mix.  He also may be having a local allergy to the detergent you’re using.  Try switching to a different laundry detergent.  If all of those efforts fail at helping at all, I would go see a doctor.

I’d start with switching laundry detergents, and then try buying a different pair of underwear, something the exact opposite of what he is wearing now.

Do you know if they are external hemmorrhoids? It sounds like that kind of pain and detail.  If it is it is a swollen vein.  He could also have an anal fissure or abscesses.

They look like blister packets right around the anal sphinter.  They hurt like a mofo and are wayyyyy worse than the internal ones.  Once you get them, they never really go away, however you can shrink them a little and push them back into the anus, which would make him feel a heck of a lot better.

Even if they are external, I would go have him buy some Preparation-H suppositories and use them, as well as the cream.  It makes you feel so much better.  Also, don’t over wash or clean it, that will irritate it more.  You can also have him take a really really hot bath and let his bum soak in the water, it makes the pain a little less. 

He could get hemmorrhoids from trying to poop too forcefully (or if he was constipated), strain on the rear side, anal sex stretching out his sphinter, or pregnancy (so cross this one off the list!).  If it hasn’t gone away in a week, he needs to get it checked out.

he could be allergic to a color. My dad is allergic to blue dye and he first started to break out in areas that were warm, armpits, underwear areas, etc. Then it spread to all over his body, so maybe do trial runs with colors too. Also what mightysapphire suggests

It might be a fungus. Skin to skin contact plus moisture (bum sweat, sorry!) can breed a blistering fungal infection like that. Definitely see a derma, but that’s my inclination. A prescription will clear it up, but in the future, a talc powder might be prudent to absorb moisture.

My Fiance had this – he refused to go to the doctor for like a year.  Turns out it was his eczema, cropping up in a new and embarassing location.

I agree with Puggy. I am an STD/HIV counselor and if someone told me that they were having that problem I would send them in for a blood test. I am not trying to scare you at all, but herpes is very common and very easy to catch. People make it out to be some gross thing to have and it is really not that big of a deal. One just needs to know if they do in fact have it. It could be something else, but I would want to rule herpes out.

Dude, that totally sounds like jock itch. I would tell him to use the jock itch creme. (Jock itch is a fungus) and to powder himself w/ Gold Bond. This will work wonders, if its really severe he might want to see a doctor to prescribe him something that isn’t OTC.

 

Good Luck.

I would do your best to get him to go to the doctor.  He could be treating something ineffectively and the doctor could know just the thing to make the problem go away entirely.

Oh boy, yeah, he needs to see a doctor.  Even if it’s something like an allergic reaction to the boxers fabric or something he needs to know.  What if it is something actually quite serious?  Men, why do they have to be so damn stubborn?!  I’d try and research more online and really urge him to go.  If he won’t go, then I don’t know, maybe threaten to take away, um, sex?!  HAHA  Maybe that’ll get him off his ass to go to the doctor.  I know that’s mean, but seriously, that is not something to just brush off.

Baby/talcum powder.  I also suggest that he change his underwear more often if he sweats alot.  Dry really well after showering, shower and dry immediately after working out.
