Fungal infection in anus, frequently passing motion, spread of athletes foot ?

hi there, my 7 year old son has recently started having accidents or small poos in his pants. I have done some investigating and found out he is itching his bum and i think this may be why he is having these accidents. It seems to happen just when he has gone to bed so i thought he might have a fungal infection and wondered what creams or talcs i should use. He also has athletes foot , could this have spead?

The history that you give suggests a possible pin worm infection.These worms colonise the anal region and come out at night to cause intense anal pruritis(itching bum).If this is the case this can be cured by a single dose of albendazole which can be taken after consulting your paediatrician
