Moody and aggressive child, rectal itching. What is the reason?
I am concerned that my daughter may be being abused at school. She has recently become more moody and aggressive. the last few days she comes up with reasons that she doesn t want to go to school. Today she told me that her bottom itches after she goes potty. Is there a possibility that something is going on?
peri anal itch in children is usually due to worm infestation.
It is quiet common in school age group.
Give her syrup albendazole 400 mg.
Sexual abuse cant an ruled out.
I think you need to talk to her regarding this.
