    Doubtful it's hemorrhoids with no other symptoms. Might be HPV. Might simply be very normal oil/sweat glands seen around the anus

    No one can open your pictures. If you remain concerned, get checked out by a physician.

    Pictures not working... could be nothing from what you describe. You can have them cultured if you want an immediate and concrete answer.


    has anyone else tried Viradux-AU? Its from a new company out of australia called viradux. I am 7 months into my trial... I'll be the guinnea pig! So far so good.. no OB and no tingling. My HSV2 was diagnosed 3 yrs ago so I'm definately a good candidate. Anyway, good luck.

    This stuff sounds like a money making company that will take your money and will not heal you.
