Suggest remedies for severe anal itching

default
Posted on Tue, 19 Jul 2016
Question: Hi Doctor, I am facing Skin Irritation and Itching problem since couple of months. I have consulted doctors and got the medication. The itching has been relieved. However, after a month again I am having similar issues. Issue under lower abdominal Thighs and Anal Itching.

Also the major problem I have is Anal Itching which is very severe and I do not have any constipation related issues at all.

Skin Specialist MD has given me

Ointment - Ebernet 1%
Nuforce Tablets- 4 Weeks once a week.
Lecoz (livocitrizine) - daily 1 tablet for 1 week.

Anal Itching is a major problem to me right now.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX, Welcome to HCM..

I've gone through your query and understand your concern..Now it seems the same problem was there back in 2014 also, isn't it ? So did it get resolved with the anti-fungal therapy that time ?

Do you notice any difference between symptoms from that time and this time ?

Do you have any other medical/surgical ailments ?

Please let me know the sexual history ? any risky exposure in the past ?

Do you have any history of hemorrhoids(piles) ?

Your Occupation history ?

Since it's been a week already so you need to get investigated (please get CBC, FBS, PPBS, HbA1C done, if not done already, to rule out diabetes in the first place) as well as need to be clinically Re-evaluated thoroughly by a Dermatologist and/ Internal medicine specialist..

Meanwhile try to keep the area as much dry as possible..

Wear loose fitting cotton clothes..

Let me know if any further queries..

Take Care
Regards
