butt itches near hole every once in a while especially after bowel movements. When i wipe sometimes especially while it is itching I get tiny specks of blood. I also have random abdominal pains ever so often and the pain switches spots almost every time. At one point in time, I had sharp pains at gall bladder/liver area so I had an ultrasound done on my gall bladder, lungs, liver, stomach, and a few other organs in there. I also had another gall bladder test with nuclear medicine. Both came back negative (with humungous medical bills because I don't have insurance because I am a struggling college student) but the constant sharp pain in that area quit so I gave up on that but the random pains and the rectal situation I explained are still going on.

Hello there
Thanks for your query.

First i think that you need a rectal exam.If you already had one and its normal then its fine.If you havent,then you need a rectal exam to rule out piles etc.
The itching and blood specks in the stools could be signs of parasitic infestation.

You need a stool examination to look for an intestinal worms etc that might cause the itching.Worm infestation is a pretty common condition, especially if you eat out a lot.

You will need albendazole /mebendazole to treat that.You primary physician will have to give you a prescription for that.

The on and off pain could be associated with that too.You are also constipated.

Increase XXXXXXX leafy vegetables XXXXXXX fibre,water in your diet.
Use a laxative for a few days if necessary.

I suggest you get a stool test and the anti parasitic medications to start with.
