Posted by shrutin @shrutin, Mar 29, 2020

My daughter is 14. She strains and it blocks her anus. She eats healthy. What can we do?

Has she seen a gastroenterologist?


Hello @shrutin and welcome to Mayo Connect,

I'm sorry to hear of your daughter's problems with the skin over the anus. Has a doctor made a recommendation on how to remedy this problem?

Is this excess skin problem a genetic problem, in other words, are there others in the family with this same disorder?
