Hi, Doc

I previously had piles which i treated with over the counter medicines like anugesic or Anusol, i had another attack recently but this time i also developed bumps like in the area between my bums which were itchy, and i realised that they have now turned into redish/whitish lesions, could this still be piles or something else? I am so ashamed of going to the doctor, i can imagine myself making excuses when i have to show this to him, however if you think it might be serious, i would really have to pluck the courage.
thank you

Hallo MJ
I think he should have a look - this does not sound like piles, it could be a viral infection ( genital warts)
