My husband has a huge redhish ball outside his anus line. He is in a lot of pain and can't even walk properly. But refuses to go to the doctor. Is there anything i can get him from the chemist that will help for ths, we spent the long weekend camping in tents and it was very cold. Could this be from the cold!

Dear vicks
No this is probably a hemorroid - put an ice pack on it and get him some Anusol or scheriproct ointment to put on.
