They are anomalies or alterations in the skin that affect the perianal region, which is the area around the anus.

What are dermal lesions?

These lesions can manifest as bumps, rashes, inflammation, changes in skin color, or any other skin abnormality in that specific area.

There are various medical conditions that can cause perianal dermal lesions, some of which include:

  1. Perianal fistulas

  2. Perianal abscesses

  3. Hemorrhoids

  4. Pilonidal cysts

  5. Perianal dermatitis

  6. Viral infections

How to prevent perianal or general dermal lesions

To prevent perianal or general dermal lesions, it's essential to follow some care practices and healthy habits. Here are some recommendations:

  1. Maintain Good Hygiene: Regularly wash the perianal area with warm water and mild soap. Avoid rubbing or scratching the skin aggressively, as this could cause irritation.

  2. Dry Properly: After washing the area, gently pat it dry with a clean, dry towel. Excess moisture can encourage the development of infections or irritations.

  3. Wear Clean and Comfortable Underwear: Choose cotton underwear that allows for proper ventilation and moisture absorption.

  4. Avoid Constipation: Consuming a diet rich in fiber and drinking enough water will help prevent constipation.

  5. Don't Delay Bowel Movements: Respond to the need to evacuate at the appropriate time. Prolonged retention of stool can increase pressure in the anal area and contribute to the development of hemorrhoids.

  6. Avoid Local Trauma: Avoid activities that could cause trauma to the perianal region, such as horseback riding or cycling for prolonged periods.

  7. Practice Safe Sex: If you engage in anal intercourse, make sure to use proper lubrication and condoms to reduce the risk of infections or injuries.

  8. Undergo Regular Medical Check-ups: Schedule regular medical check-ups with a healthcare professional.
