Question: My Wife has been experiencing "crawling" feelings on the inside of her anus.
She said that it feels like little worms moving around and is very uncomfortable.
Sometimes its much worse and sometimes it eases up. She said it gets better during the day when she is active but at night time, she does not get sleep as its too uncomfortable. Taking a hot bath seems to help. She has recently taken Zentel tablet and seems to have no help at all. Please can you suggest a remedy or any medication to ease her of this condition.

Hello,
Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

I would like to consider following possibilities as a cause for her problem, in following hierarchy:
•     Worm infestation
•     Vitamin deficiency
•     Skin allergy surrounding anus
•     Skin infection surrounding anus

Following steps will help her in treatment:
-Take Zental for 3 days then once in every month for deworming.
-Start multivitamins and take healthy diet.
-Treatment of constipation if present.
-Apply coconut oil after taking it on finger two times a day. It will decrease crawling feeling.
-If symptoms persist then take dermatologist opinion to rule out allergy and infection.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
Regards,

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
