Itching with skin tag in the anus. Treated with anti fungal creams and steroids. Itching spreading to vagina. How to stop this?

hi, im suffering with a seriously itchy bottom and the itch is spreading towards my vagina. I do have a skin tag on my anus from a large pile during pregnancy. I ve been treated with steroid and anti fungal creams such I can t use any more as the sign in that area is thinning, I ve also been treated for worms but none of this has helped. I don t use soap in the bath and haven t changed my washing powder. This all started 16 months ago after my daughter was born. What can I do to stop this?

Hi,
Welcome to HCM,
Itching can be due to fungal infection and even due to long standing piles.
Get examined by your doctor and if there is fungal infection then local application of anti fungal cream is not enough.
Take oral anti fungal tablet like Fole 150 once in a week for 4 weeks.
Use only anti fungal cream and not steroid.
Ok and bye.
