Fishy Leakage

An_191905 posted:
I am a healthy male in his mid-30s. Recently, my anus has been tender and I have had a clear-ish liquid that has been leaking from my anus that has a strong fishy smell. I have no idea why this started (it started suddenly). I have never engaged in any sexual activity with my anus so I don't know why it would leak. When I go to the bathroom, I can hold it in without any issues but it has been painful since this started. Does anybody have any ideas what this is and whether it will resolve itself? I've been too embarrassed to visit a doctor over this.

You need to see your doctor as you could have an anal fissure.
