What causes anus discharge when suffering from hemorrhoids and IBS?
User rating for this question
I'm not sure where to go for help/diagnosis. About six months ago I developed a skin rash around my anus. My doctor diagnosed it as candidiasis, and prescribed Diflucan and Nystatin. When they didn't seen to clear it up, doctor referred me to a dermatologist, but I don't think it is a dermatological problem. I have hemorrhoids. I have colonoscopies every two years, and polyps are removed every time. I have been told I have irritable bowel syndrome. Now I have severe discharge which may be anal discharge, or could be from the skin irritation. What should I do?

Brief Answer: Further tests are needed for diagnosis&therapy.... Detailed Answer: Hi, There are various factors giving rash around your anus and discharge apart candida: - parasites (should do examination of feces for ova/parasites) - bacteria (should culture the feces for bacteria and candida and do sensitivity testing to determine the right drug) - hemorrhoids (should clarify the status of hemorrhoids by colonoscopy) - psoriasis (a further consultation with dermatologist is needed to rule it out and/or cure it). You should carry out the tests first to determine the diagnose and then, decide for the best treatment. All the best!
